Hilton Smythe is delighted to offer to the market this well established and busy vehicle repair business, which is ideally located within the village of Pulborough, West Sussex.
The business was originally established in 1970 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 1989. 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 5½ days per week and generates a good turnover and gross profit.
Our client offers a variety vehicle repair services including batteries, brakes and clutches, air conditioning and re-gas, exhaust systems and cambelts, suspension and steering, fuel injection and oil changes, servicing and arranging MOTs.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the service 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. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent services offered.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to acquire a thriving business in a prime trading location, therefore, early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
