Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established motor vehicle and MoT garage business in an ideal trading location in Leicester, East Midlands.

The business was established by our client in 1980 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5½ days per week and generates a projected turnover in the region of £170,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 50%.

Our client offers a variety of motor vehicle services for cars and class 4 and 7 vans including MoT testing, servicing, repairs and fittings. The business carries out over 700 MoT’s per year and is the only garage on site to carry out repairs to class 4 and 7 vehicles. We are advised our client is willing to offer a handover period to any new owner and there is an extremely loyal mechanic who is willing to stay within the business.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We are advised there is a leasehold option available for £150,000 + SAV – a new lease is to be agreed.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by increasing the number of mechanics available to carry out repairs. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the services offered. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the business.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Scudamore Motor Company occupies substantial premises, ideally located on a busy industrial estate within the city of Leicester in the East Midlands. The business is surrounded by a wealth of complementary businesses and benefits from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade.
