Hilton Smythe are delighted to bring to the market (on a leasehold basis) a fantastic opportunity to purchase this fully equipped servicing and motor vehicle repair business.
Ramp It Up Garage has been under the careful ownership of our client since 2016 and is only now being offered to the market as our clients looks to relocate out of the area.
The business currently operates over 6 days a week and offers a variety of services including repairs and servicing, further services offered include engine diagnostic testing, diesel tuning, exhaust fitting, tyres (supplied) and car accessories. This fully equipped garage can carry out repairs on all makes and models and can also offer a good selection spares.
The garage has a unique feature in that it offers to hire out ramps and tooling to the general public for diy repairs, along with hiring a staff member for the tricky bits.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the local area and further afield for the high quality of the services and parts offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a good level of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover with the introduction of an mot bay, extending the opening hours to accommodate an increased work load. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the business and the services offered, or perhaps branch out into the car and van hire business and also car sales, along with the introduction of an out of hours breakdown recovery service and introducing a valeting service.
A tremendous opportunity to own this turn key business, and early enquiries must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
Early enquiries highly recommended.
