Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and unique wedding car service business in Nottingham.
The business was established by our client in 1999 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates as and when necessary and generates a turnover in the region of £20,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a chauffeur driven classic car business for weddings and private hire. The three cars are very well known with historical interest and have all been used in a number of movies and dramas.
‘Victoria’ is the 1924 Rolls-Royce Pullman Limousine with a unique coachwork configuration by Barker of London and has won national awards for preservation, conservation and elegance. Victoria featured as the principal car in the 2008 film Brideshead Revisited. More recently the car was selected to be in the popular drama series Downton Abbey.
The 1929 Rolls–Royce Open-Tourer by the Halifax Coachbuilders Horsefield won the best car in show at Moorgreen in 2011 and was second in the vintage class at Chatsworth in 2011. The car is silver in colour and has a black folding hood and side screens. The car is extremely popular and is mechanically in tip top condition, having benefited from a nut-and-bolt chassis and engine rebuild in the mid-nineties.
The 1932 Rolls-Royce Special Touring Saloon, whose coachwork was constructed by the Royal Coachbuilders, Hooper of London and is of a unique design to Britain. Only four were made to this particular design and ‘Courtney’ is the sole surviving one. It was the principal car in an episode of the popular TV series ‘Poirot’ starring David Suchet. More recently it was selected to be in the film ‘A Girls Night Out’, set at the end of WWII and following Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret during the Victory in Europe celebrations.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the very high quality of service offered, which has resulted in many word of mouth recommendations. The business has a comprehensive and informative website already in place at www.2thechurchontime.co.uk.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by attending some of the many wedding fairs, which are held throughout the county, to promote the business. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this unique business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
To The Church on Time is currently run from our client’s home in Nottingham, but could be run from anywhere within the area, or anywhere within the United Kingdom. The business serves local towns and cities, with easy road access to Mansfield, Chesterfield and Derby.
