Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy MoT and service/repair garage in Alloa, Clackmannanshire. The business was established in 1972 and has been in our clients` careful ownership since 1994. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients` desire for a well-earned retirement. The business is open 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £81,000 per annum, with a reported gross profit of approximately 64% as per 2015 accounts.
The turnover is generated from vehicle repair, servicing and MoT testing on all makes and models of cars and vans. The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. The property boasts a small car showroom that is currently not being utilised and a new owner could use this to sell new and used vehicles.
There is also scope to increase the turnover by a small marketing campaign to highlight the business and services offered. A new owner could also launch a website to generate more trade. The premises are well-equipped to suit the trade with a large range of tools and equipment. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this busy and thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
