Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Simply Cars and Vans. The business is a popular garage offering car and van repairs, servicing and diagnostics with the latest vehicle diagnostic technology.
The business was originally established not long ago by our client in 2010. Our client is looking to sell the business as he has very recently moved away from the area. He would also like to focus more on other business interests.
Over such a short space of time, the business has been a great success, and has built up an enviable reputation in the area. We believe the business has good relationships with local parts suppliers allowing for competitive rates.
The business has a great website www.simplycarsandvans.com going into detail of what the business is all about and what services they offer. There is also a blog with useful tips and advice for customers.
The current turnover is around £70,000 per annum. This is good, but we believe that this could be increased. We highly advise the new owner to look into getting an MOT licence, this is a mass market with a huge amount of competition, and would generate an extra income.
The business used to have a 24 hour recovery service, which was stopped very recently. We are advised that our client still gets a high number of requests for this service. Unfortunately our client sold his recovery truck, but this could be something the new owner could look into acquiring. This service would be very popular, and will increase turnover massively.
This is the perfect turnkey opportunity with all equipment, fixtures and fittings included in the sale; this also includes 2 vehicles. We are advised the overheads for the business are very low, this allows for higher profits. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing for such a fantastic business, with a great reputation.
