Hilton Smythe are proud to present to the market West End MOT Centre.
The business has been long established and is very well known in the area, seeing much repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. Our client has owned for the business for 8 years and is reluctantly putting it on the market as he has other business interests that he wants to pursue.
The business is well known for its MOT services for class 1 – 7 which include motor bikes but excludes class 5. Revenue derived from approximately 8 – 16 MOT’s a day with 95% of the trade from local garages and dealerships. The business also offers general car repairs and services, they are an exhaust specialising for motor homes. The business is set over four units and offers a fully equipped garage with room for services and vehicle repairs.
We feel as the turnover could be increased by expanding opening hours to the weekend and would benefit from a modest marketing and advertising campaign to attract new custom. We would advise any new owner to also implement road side signage to attract passing trade.
This is an ideal opportunity to acquire an already popular garage with huge scope for future development; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
