Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established and busy MoT garage business in Sacriston, County Durham.

The business was established in 1993 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2005. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £150,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 50%.

Our client offers repairs, maintenance and MoTs for classes 4, 7 and motorcycles. There is a two post ramp and TV screen fitted for diagnostics. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the parts used and 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 the turnover could be increased by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the services offered. A new owner could also introduce more services such as insurance work or valeting. A rolling road/mapping road could be added to the motorcycle MoT bay, this could potentially increase turnover. The business already has an excellent website in place to promote the business, which could incorporate online bookings.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

 

 

 

The business is owner run and managed with 1 x full time and 1 x part time staff members.

Monday – Friday: 8.00am – 5.00pm
Saturday: 8.00am – 12.00pm
Sunday: Closed
