Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Andoversford mot Centre. The business was originally established by our client in 2011; who is now looking to sell this successful business due to relocation.

The business is run as an mot garage for classes 1,2,4,5 and 7. They also offer other garage services, most trade is from mot services. The business is open 6 days a week and generates an advised turnover of around £108,000 per annum with a gross profit of 50%.

We feel this already successful business could increase the turnover further by taking on extra staff; this would further allow more bookings. The business currently receives a generous amount of repeat loyal trade from the local area. We feel this could be boosted by taking advantage of free advertising on social media.

Another arm of the business to look into would be vehicle pick-ups and drop offs. Courtesy cars would also compliment the trade well.

This is a perfect premise for the trade and we are advised the building is high enough to accommodate busses. The new owner should look into this option as it would allow the garage to stand out from its competitors. The garage is a great size with plenty of parking for custom and awaiting vehicles. The current owner is looking to get relief on the current annual rates bill in order to increase the gross profit figure.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a bolt-on or first business. We highly advise early viewing to any purchaser interested in this trade.
