Hilton Smythe are privileged to offer this busy and reputable garage occupying a most enviable position.
This thriving business is now being sold due to our clients wish to retire. The garage was one of the original businesses who took position in this area and now enjoys the increasing footfall due to its expansion and success.
The garage offers repairs, servicing and class 4 MOT’s for all car types and light commercials including some sales of used cars from the roadside positions.
Currently 90% of the turnover is derived from the repairs/servicing/MOT’s and 10% from the car sales side, any new owner could easily increase the sales side by adding new car stock and advertising.
The majority of our client’s business comes from repeat work, recommendations and word of mouth. Our clients identify they could easily add a further 40% to the current turnover levels by simply advertising more, offer garage promotions, increase the car sales side and add a repair recovery service.
The business includes a very well trained and skilled workforce who will be included in the sale, the team can quite easily run the garage in the absence of the owners making the transition to any new buyer very smooth.
A full agreed business handover will be offered.
