***Potential Development Opportunity***
80% of the same road has been converted into residential dwelling. Hull City Council have just pledged to deliver 60,000 properties in the city centre.
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this exciting development opportunity. Currently run as a garage, this fully equipped repairs service has been established since 1950 and under the careful control of our client for some 30 years. However our client advises that the business is slowly winding down, therefore opening up the potential for the site to be used for alternative purposes if required.
The business has immense development potential, and benefits from being situated in a densely populated residential area with good links to the major road networks.
We are advised that within the area, plans are in place to build around 60,000 residential dwellings, with the potential for the business to take advantage of this future development.
Vehicle Protection Services provides a comprehensive professional service including servicing, repairs, welding, rust proofing, under sealing, engine tuning, diagnostic services and MOT’s. All work is carried out by highly skilled mechanics to exacting standards.
The business has a fantastic reputation and is very well supported by local residents and businesses with much repeat trade including regular custom from the local police, security companies and car dealers and benefits from a monopoly trading position within the city centre.
The large workshop is very well presented with high quality equipment installed, providing bays for up to 11 vehicles.
We are advised that the business is now benefiting from being added to the panel to carry out Mot`s on behalf of the Humberside Police Department.
We believe this profitable business would benefit from an injection of marketing and advertising. In particular establishing a website to further promote awareness of the business to new clients to build upon the already solid client base and to further increase turnover.
Early viewing of this clearly sustainable turn the key business is highly recommended.Location
