Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this very well-established MOT, repair, tyre and servicing specialist, offering an ideal, easily accessible location within a large detached building, having a separate workshop and MOT bay.

The business carries out as many as 1800 class 4 MOT’s a year, with a very strong and established local following. They also carry out repairs and serving, tyre changing and balancing and so much more.

Even though this is a very strong and successful business, it would also greatly benefit by adopting a far more vigorous marketing policy, with online advertising, use of social media and a good quality website, together with longer hours including Saturday morning opening, taking it to the next level.

Potential buyers could also tap into commercial contracts which would be available locally, particularly because 2 of the local main dealers have closed recently.

An internal inspection is very highly recommended to appreciate the potential and quality on offer.

Situated in Lockeridge, a small rural village in Wiltshire. It lies at the edge of the West Woods in the Kennet Valley, 3 miles west of Marlborough, a small but very busy market town, situated on the Old Bath Road, the old main road from London to Bath.
