Description

Business
Hilton Smythe are delighted to bring to the market dj Autos, a well-established car service and repairs business.

The garage was established in 1972 and has built up a large and loyal client base, over that time with lots of repeat custom. The garage is now being offered for sale due to the current owners wish to retire.

At present the garage currently offers the following services:
Vehicle servicing
Vehicle diagnostics
Car exhausts
Car brakes
Timing belts
Welding
mot preparation and repair
Car batteries
Pre-winter check-ups and services

dj Autos currently benefits from recommendations and referrals. Dj Autos would ideally suit a new owner who could build upon the foundations laid down and push the business forward.

There is plenty of scope for improvement and the garage would benefit from advertising and using modern marketing schemes. Our client currently takes over 7 weeks holiday a year therefore the turnover would increase solely by opening those extra 7+ weeks.
