Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Eldrick Garage a well-established and very popular MOT station and service garage located in Fauldhouse, West Lothian.
Eldrick Garage is family run and has been established for some 22 years and is only now being offered for sale, as it’s our clients desire to take his well-earned retirement. The business currently operates over 5 days a week and offers a variety of services including class 4 MOTs, repairs, servicing, and specialises in the repair of all makes of Smart cars.
Other services offered include engine diagnostic testing, diesel tuning, wheel alignment and balancing, tyres and car accessories. This fully equipped garage can carry out repairs on all makes and models and can also offer a good selection of spares.
The garage has built up an excellent reputation within the local area and further afield for the high quality of the services and parts offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours to accommodate an increased work load. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the business and the services offered, or perhaps branch out into the car and van hire business and also car sales, along with the introduction of an out of hours breakdown recovery service. The garage already has a very informative website in place to promote the business and is a member of various motor trade schemes.
Due to the location, size of the premises and surrounding ground, there may be an option for development potential, subject to local authority planning.
