Business Description
Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this popular garage business located in Kendal, Cumbria. The business was established by our clients in 2014. The garage is now being offered to the market, due to our clients desire to move onto another business venture.

The business runs as a vehicle repair and MOT centre. Over the years our clients have built up the business to an exceptional standard. Our clients have deals with local vehicle dealerships, this allows for a generous amount of repeat loyal trade.

The business generated a turnover in the region of £348,000 as of the 2016 accounts. This is an excellent turnover with scope to be increased. The business hardly advertises and thrives from word of mouth recommendations and repeat custom. Advertising through Yell.com would be a great way of gaining further custom.

Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter are great cost effective ways of marketing. An online booking system could further benefit the site and would allow for convenience to both customers and staff.

The business has staff trained to conduct MOT's. Our client has been a mechanic for many years and is offering a handover period to introduce the new buyer to regular customers and suppliers.

This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade. Viewings are strictly by appointment only.
