Freehold/Leasehold established Garage and MOT Station
Sheffield, South Yorkshire
Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very busy garage service and MoT station in a prime trading location in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. The business was established by our client in 1998 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £400,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 50%. Our client offers a variety of services including class 4, class 5 and class 7 MoT’s MoT repairs, servicing, diagnostics, four wheel alignment and general repairs to all makes and models of vehicles, as well as performance parts fitted and Hid kits. The property is very well-maintained and fitted out to suit the trade and boasts a large glass fronted main reception, with two servicing bays and a MoT bay to the side of the main building. To the first floor of the main building is a large office space, which could be let out to generate further income. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area and further afield for the high quality of service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The business is currently run at a pace to suit our client and would benefit from a hands on owner with drive and ambition. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the excellent service offered. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to acquire a well-established and busy garage and MoT centre, in a prime trading position with massive scope for growth, therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
