The thriving village is a desirable residential area with an expanding population; approximately 800 new houses are to be built in the vicinity. The village enjoys a range of amenities including a post office, public house, numerous shops and both primary and secondary schools.
The area is easily accessible via numerous local roads, with good links to the local conurbations including Oswestry and Shrewsbury. Access to the motorway network is available via the M53 and M56 at Chester and the M54 at Telford.
The garage business and premises are complemented by a spacious detached 3-bedroom period cottage situated next door. Both the cottage and the garage business are available in a range of purchase options to suit, with freehold and leasehold contracts offered.
The business was established over 100 years ago and has been in the careful hands of the current owners for over 30 years, only now offered for sale due to retirement. This thriving business is located in the centre of the village, ideally placed to serve the local community and giving easy access for customers from further afield. The owner has continually sought to improve the business and has developed an enviable reputation, providing much repeat trade and word-of-mouth recommendations.
The garage offers a range of automotive services including brakes, suspension, tyres, auto electrics and air conditioning service and re-gas, as well as general repairs and servicing.
The premises are finished with an exceptionally high standard of fixtures, fittings and equipment, and benefit from a direct link to the superfast broadband available in the area. The property has 4KW Solar Panels installed at full tariff rate /feedback, which generates an annual income of £2,000 as well as providing electricity for the business with no additional costs.
The business trades from a substantial double workshop, steel frame and breeze block with a steel insulated roof, and is secured with full height roller shutter doors. To the front of the premises is a sizeable car park, suitable for 12+ cars.
Internally the open plan workshop is fully fitted for the trade with a range of standard and specialist equipment including a 3.5tonne 4-post ramp, 2 x 3-tonne 2-post ramps, workbenches, tyre changer, tyre balancer, and compressor.
The MOT bay was fully refurbished in June this year, including the installation of a one-man Class VII MOT ramp. Other features include an overhead gas heating system, wall mounted tyre rack, Bosch gas analysers, transmission jack, 2 x spring compressors, static drill, engine crane, various axle stands, battery changer and disc grinder.
A store room provides shelving and racking to perimeter walls, mig welder, oxy-acetylene welder and specialist diagnostic equipment, along with an induction heater.
Also on the premises is an office, staff kitchen, staff and accessible WC, rear store area, and a customer waiting room with seating area, service desk, MOT PC workstation and a WC.
To the rear of the premises there are 3 x bulk oil tanks.
The Grade II listed 2-storey cottage has a charming chocolate-box style build with a black and white period finish.
The main entrance leads to an inner hallway with doors to various rooms.
There is a fitted kitchen with dining area, store room, linen cupboard, utility room with back door, downstairs double bedroom and a family bathroom with bath, walk-in shower, hand wash basin and WC.
An internal staircase leads up to the first floor, where there is a double bedroom with en-suite facilities, airing cupboard and loft access, and a further double bedroom.
Currently run at a pace to suit, the business benefits from a highly experienced team of loyal members of staff, which will undoubtedly make the business transfer significantly simpler.
There is a professional website in place, showcasing the premises and the services available, as well as detailing location and contact information. Social media is also in place, this is a useful marketing tool and would benefit from regular updates and additional photographs.
