Business Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular MOT and vehicle repair centre in Maltby, South Yorkshire.
The old established business has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2002 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for semi-retirement. The business operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £280,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 49%.
Our client offers a variety of services including MOTs, vehicle repairs, servicing, diagnostics and tyres. Our client has invested a considerable amount of money in modern up to date equipment including a computerised four wheel alignment service, which very few garages offer, although our client has been too busy to advertise this service, which is capable of producing a good income.
There is potential for a new owner to approach the many companies within a 15 mile radius, who operate fleet vehicles, as our client has been approached in the past by various local companies to look after their vehicles, but again our client has had to turn away the business due to being so busy, therefore this business offers tremendous scope for future development.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the excellent services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business with tremendous scope for future development to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
