Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy car breaker and spare parts retail business in Birmingham, West Midlands. The business was established by our client in 1998 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients desire for a change of direction.

The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £60,000 per annum, with a good gross profit. Our clients offer a wide range of services including car breaking, collection of scrap vehicles, sale of spare parts, mechanical repairs, tyre sales and fitting.

The business has built up an enviable reputation for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.  

The business site hold an array of licences including Category B Breakers license, Waste Carrier License, Hazardous waste License all of which are granted by the Environment Agency. The business also holds the Scrap Metal Dealers Act License, which is granted by Birminghm City Council.

The business also has long established contracts with car suppliers, which enables regular sourcing of vehicles and stock.

We feel the turnover could be further increased by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business further. A new owner could also establish a website to advertise the business and the services offered.

The premises boast 5 units, which are used for storage and offices, as well as a repair workshop. We are advised that there is an industrial crane, a fork lift truck and a Ford Transit recovery vehicle included in the sale. The owners have recently bought a Sennebogen 830 material handler worth £70,000. Our client is willing to offer a handover period, should a new owner desire.

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.
