Business Description
BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Southern Counties Trailer Parts Ltd. The business runs as a wholesalers and delivery service for vehicle and trailer parts.

Our clients originally established the business is 1987. The business has been a great success over the years, building up an enviable reputation year on year. However our client is now looking to sell due to the desire to retire.

The business is currently generating a healthy turnover of around £345,000 per annum with a gross profit of 42%.

Although the turnover is already very high, we believe there is room to increase. Ways in which the new owner could do this is, to expand the parts delivery service. The have a specially kitted out van which is used for deliveries, however investing in another vehicle would allow more deliveries to take place and could also widen the delivery area.  The business could also introduce a website, which we believe will increase knowledge of the business, therefore increase trade.

The business uses the World Pay payment system, this is a well known secure way for taking payments. We have been informed that 90% of payment for the business is through 30-45 day credit accounts

This company focuses on a large market and would benefit from arranging contracts with firms to secure sales. There is a fantastic withstanding loyal client base which generates a high amount of turnover.

A new owner would need some experience of the HGV parts industry. We have been advised that the business can easily increase revenue. The current premises are versatile, which is perfect for a buyer looking for a investment opportunity.

We believe this is a fantastic opportunity for a new owner looking for an already existing well known profitable business. We highly advise early viewing to avoid missing out on this business.
