Business Description

Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Castleford American Auto. Our client originally established the business 35 years ago in 1980, and has thoroughly enjoyed running the garage. However our client is now looking to sell the business due to the desire for retirement.

Our client derives his income from a loyal customer base of American car enthusiasts and caters for all makes & models of American origin. The business is customer based throughout the UK and parts of Europe. Services are offered with the sale of the cars. Further services on offer are new & used car parts, classic car restoration and servicing.

The business is for sale with or without the property or possibly the property on lease. We are advised the turnover for the business is around £75,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 44%. There is an existing website which could be turned into an e commerce website. This would therefore increase sales for those who are unable to travel to the garage.

This business has plenty of potential for a new owner looking for an already well established business. We believe this would make an ideal bolt on for someone within the industry looking to expand into this niche market that has very little competition.   

With the business genuinely coming on to the market, we highly advise early viewing of this profitable opportunity.

The business is located on a busy main road and is known as the A6032, and is well served by the public transport system, with bus stops within easy walking distance of the property.
