Business Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy garage business, which is ideally located within the popular town of Falmouth in Cornwall.
The business was original established in 1984 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 1994. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £150,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
The local well-known garage offers a variety of services including car repairs and car body repairs. Our client also offers his services a local taxi firm, who have a fleet of 20 vehicles. The property is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade and boasts spacious two bedroom owners’ accommodation to the first floor with a large living room, kitchen/dining room and bathroom.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the repairs and services 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, perhaps by offering Saturday trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent service offered. We feel the business would benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the business.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
