Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Bike Treads. This motorcycle showroom was originally established in 1987 by our clients. The owner is now looking to sell due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a motorcycle showroom, offering a range of bikes and scooters. They are an exclusive dealer for Sym, Keyway and the Rieju brands and are the only official company in Wiltshire to do so. The retail space also offers a range of accessories and products to compliment the trade. This business comes with a fully fitted garage, that provides a range of services such as repairs, mot’s, services, paint jobs and more.

The business generates a healthy turnover of around £339,000 per annum as of the 2016 accounts, the gross profit is around 22%. This is a healthy turnover, however, we feel this could be increased. One way the new owner could look to boost turnover would be to offer a wider selection of vehicles in the showroom.

The business advertises on free social media sites such as Facebook. They have over 400 likes on their page, from where they promote new stock lines, bikes, events and new promotional offers. The business also has a well-presented website. From the site customers are able to book their vehicles in for an mot.

The business has an excellent reputation in the area due to the long establishment. Over the years the garage and store have built up regular loyal clientele. The diary, contact lists and service information are included in the sale.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a purchaser looking for a business already run to an exceptional standard. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing for any purchaser interested in the trade.
