Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular MOT station and vehicle repair business Staffordshire.
The business was established by our client in 2005 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for change of direction and to concentrate on other interests. The business operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £331,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 41% as per 2015 accounts.
Our client offers a variety of services including class 4 MOT testing, mechanical repairs, services, engine diagnostics, spare parts and car accessories. The modern and fully equipped garage can carry out repairs on all makes and models. The retail shop stocks a good selection of spare parts and accessories including wheels and tyres, exhausts, engine oils, brake discs and pads and batteries to name a few.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield for the high quality of the services and parts offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the business and the services offered, or perhaps branch out into the car and van hire business. The garage already has a very informative website in place to promote the business.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
This popular MOT test centre and vehicle repair business occupies substantial lock-up premises, ideally located in a busy industrial estate in Staffordshire. The business is surrounded by many complimentary businesses, therefore benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The garage further benefits from ample free car parking facilities to the front of the premises.
