Hilton Smythe are delighted to bring to the market Tanpits MOT Ltd, a very well-established MOT, servicing and repairs business located in Accrington. The garage currently has class 4, 5 and 7 licences.
Tanpits was established in 2005, the garage is now being offered for sale due to the owners wish of retirement/semi-retirement.
It was the first Class 4 and 7 MOT station to be opened in Accrington. Harvey St. Garage Ltd was opened in 2007 offering servicing and repairs. Later, Harvey St Garage Ltd moved to Tanpits Road merging these two garages to become Tanpits MOT Ltd as it is today.
Tanpits MOT are a a reproved repair centre for the RAC and warranty wise.
The business has built a large and loyal client base over that time and has lots of repeat custom, our client is also offering a 6 months handover period at no extra cost.

Please take a look at the current 5 star rating with review quotes such as ‘Excellent service, I wouldn’t go anywhere else now’ and ‘First time going, the staff are professional and welcoming, I will be using them again in the future’.
