Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Pound Lane Auto Discounts, which was established by our client, who is looking forward to retirement, in 1981 and is a well-established name in the area.

Covering Essex and much further via the websites and,  Pound Lane pride themselves in old style excellent customer service that is hard to find. It doesn't matter if the spares you want are for an early Ford Anglia or the latest BMW, they will most of the time have your part on the shelf ready to go and if not will be able to order it in.

The business has fantastic reviews being 4.7/5 on Google and 5* on Yell. There are many returning customers who are generally known by name by the experienced and long term staff.

Pound Lane Auto Discounts is a profitable business, however, there is still scope for development by considering opening longer hours or listing more products, especially for classic cars, on line.

There are many reasons to buy Pound Lane Auto Discounts including:-

  • Long established customer base

  • Loyal and knowledgeable staff

  • Strong and returning customer base
