Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Twist & Go Motorcycle which was established approximately 25 years ago and owned by our client for the previous 7 years. The business genuinely comes to the market as our client wishes to move to another part of the country.
Twist & Go is a motorcycle repair, service centre and MOT centre, well known in the area, with good support from local residents, in addition to good connections to many insurance companies.
All work is derived from the existing client base or word of mouth recommendations, with currently no advertising undertaken. We believe the purchaser should invest in a webpage and have a presence on social media to promote the business to new custom.
The business is currently solely run by our client at a pace to suit. However, previously our client has employed several staff to meet demand. Giving scope for the purchaser to expand the business again if desired.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.Location
