Aspire is delighted to offer for sale this Garage Services and MOT Station business, ideally located in a prime trading position on the North Wales coast. The business is situated on a popular business park in the centre of town and benefits from wide frontage overlooking one of the main roads, attracting much passing trade. There are numerous complimentary businesses close by, along with ample car parking on-site and free on-street parking adjacent.
The town centre is a short walk away, with easy access to public transport including a nearby train station and a bus stop directly across the road. There are a variety of shops, businesses and amenities available, along with a promenade and beach access.
The town and local conurbations can be reached via the A55, North Wales Expressway, which runs throughout the area and on to the motorway network at Chester.
The business has been established for over 15 years and has been in the careful hands of the current owner for over 10 years. The owner has developed an enviable reputation in the town, ensuring much repeat trade and word-of-mouth recommendations.
The garage provides a range of standard services and repairs to all makes and models of cars, as well as Class IV MOT’s. Motorcycle MOTs are also provided, both Class I and Class II. All work is carried out to a professional standard and priced competitively.
The business operates from a substantial light industrial unit, constructed from steel and brick, and with full height roller shutter doors to the front.
Internally the spacious open-plan workshop is well equipped for the trade and provides 9 parking bays. The MOT area has an open inspection pit, rolling road, brakes tester, compressor and MIG welder. There are 2 x 4-tonne, 2-post ramps, both capable of supporting large 4 x 4 vehicles.
There is a separate motorcycle workshop, with MOT bays for 2 bikes.
Also on the premises is a customer waiting room with coffee machine, office, WCs and storeroom with shelving and racking for stock.
The premises benefit from concrete flooring throughout and are very well secured.
The garage is currently run at a pace to suit by the owner and one member of staff, with very little marketing undertaken. There is good potential to boost turnover; it would be relatively easy to employ members of staff and increase the amount of work undertaken. This could be achieved with a vigorous advertising campaign to develop market share.
The business would benefit from the addition of a website, presenting the available services along with location and contact details. Introducing social media would also assist with marketing, allowing direct customer targeting, perhaps with special offers.
