Busy Horticultural Machinery Service, Repair And Sales Business
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy horticultural machinery service, repair and sales business in Farnsfield, Nottinghamshire. The business was established by our client in 2008 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £95,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 47%. The turnover is generated from the sales, servicing and repair of horticultural machinery, which is carried out within the workshop or from on-site visits. Our client is also an agent for Husqvarna, who supply horticultural equipment and protective clothing. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the industry for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to promote the goods and services offered. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the business. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
