This reputable and long established business occupies an enviable trading position in a busy area of Nottingham. Our client has secured a strong customer base and exceptional reputation. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of new clutch and engine services and longer opening hours, possibly a collection and drop off service where appropriate. The business currently doesn't undertake Engine, Gearbox or Clutch work so there is huge scope to expand this. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.
