Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market the busy, successful and long established Baildon Green Autos. This excellent vehicle repair and service business was established by our client 35 years ago; who is now looking to sell, due to retirement.
Baildon Green Autos, repairs and services (including pre MOT) vehicles and also sells used cars on site. In 2017 the garage prepared 580 cars for MOT and sold 68 used cars in this period. These sales have been achieved without media advertising of the cars for sale.
The business already has an excellent reputation and has the benefit of a monopoly in the area. The premise is well fitted out with good quality tooling and equipment.
Although already successful and profitable it will expand further with advertising, marketing and website sales.
Consideration could also be given to opening a body shop.
Rent and overheads are low.
The price has been reduced to affect an early sale.
