Business Description
Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Booths Garage.

Booths Garage was founded over fifty years ago and is well known to the residents of Stoke-on-Trent. The current owners have run the business successfully and lucratively since 2006 but are now selling, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart so that they can pursue their dreams of moving to Cornwall and living a simpler life near the Sea.

Booths Garage is an MOT station offering class 4, 5 & 7 MOTs. The business currently carries out approximately 30-40 MOTs per week. Additionally, the business offers;
• Dealer Approved Servicing for all makes and models
• 4 Wheel Laser Alignment
• Air conditioning servicing and recharging
• Tyres, Exhausts and Batteries
• Engine Diagnostics
• Engine Rebuilds
• Brakes and suspension
• Mechanical repairs

The sale will include the business website (boothsgarage.co.uk), which includes an online booking facility and the business has good visibility on the internet along with many great reviews. The business has an impressive number of regular customers, many of whom are known by the owners who are well liked and respected members of the local community.

Scope to Improve
