Business Description
This well established and highly reputable vehicle business has been established some 25 years, and during that time has built up an enviable reputation in the North East region. The business provides exceptional value for money and a reliable trustworthy range of vehicle offerings, be it car sales, car hire, van sales/hire or minibus rental.

The business operates from one high profile site. The majority of current revenues are generated via used car sales (circa 90 %). The business has carved out a niche in the sub-prime market by specialising in offering “Guaranteed Car Finance” and enjoys high levels of referrals and repeat business due to this.

In addition to the car sales, the business operation offers complementary services including car hire, van and minibus hire as well as motorhome hire, mainly on a B2B/commercial basis. Whilst this only accounts for some 10% of current revenues (mainly due to the fact that the used car sales business is expanding at a rapid rate) it is still a valuable part of the business. Hire customers include schools, colleges and universities as well as public sector bodies, many of whom have contract hire agreements in place for ongoing use, (approx. 30 cars and 15 mini-buses in the hire fleet and expanding!).

The company has enjoyed very good growth over recent years and the business has quickly become one of the largest independent used car sales and vehicle hire companies in the North East.

Even though the business specialises in the economy/sub-prime sector of the used vehicle market, it provides a full safety check on all cars to give customer peace of mind. It can also provide very comprehensive warranty packages with all vehicles and tailor them to meet customer specific requirements, if need be. It is this level of customer care that really does separate the business from other operators who work in this sector of the motor trade.

The business trades from a prominent location with superb facilities, including own workshop and highly visible forecourt frontage. The site is a real asset of this business. Many existing customers have been loyal to the business since the beginning and recommend friends and family. This has been due in no small part to the business’s competitive prices, finance, quality products, service and attention to detail.

The site can accommodate some 70-80 cars and commercial vehicles on the forecourt, which ensures there is always a good choice of vehicles for customers to view. There is good access and the forecourt is viewer friendly with no pushy sales techniques. The site has good signage and is highly visible from the road. The vendor has invested in the business premises over recent years and it carries out its own workshop servicing.
