Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this very well-established classic car restoration garage, with a loyal customer base, having been in business for more than 29 years in its present location.
They look after all forms of classic cars, offering a high-class service in this specialist area.
The business itself has been run by the current owner for the last 29 years and is well known and established in the area. The owner is now looking towards a very well-earned retirement, due to ill health.
The business is currently run, extensively by the owner only, who operates Monday to Friday, with some Saturday mornings. If the hours were increased and the business took on more staff, there is certainly room for increasing the turnover and expanding the business, together with a website and more advertising.
However, at present it is very much a lifestyle business, which suits the owner and gives him the flexibility he desires.
An internal inspection is very highly recommended to appreciate the position and potential on offer for this well priced business.Location
