Freehold Petrol Station and Garage on Main Road
Redcar, North Yorkshire
Ref: 13414 A
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Brighton Motor Services. This is a well-established business that first opened in 1968. The petrol station and garage are located on a busy main road. This is a great location for this type of business. Our client has run the business to an exceptional standard; however, the business in now being offered to the market, due to our clients desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
This is a multi-facet business that offers an exception range of services. Included in the sale is a fully functioning petrol station and garage. The garage business compliments the petrol station well and receives a large amount of trade from this. The station has a shop which sells some confectionery and maintenance products for vehicles.
The garage is able to conduct a variety of services, this includes, services, MOT’s, MOT repairs, timing belts, tyres and much more. Recovery, courtesy cars and bodywork are also available, again these are great extras that have proven to be very popular.
The petrol station is currently only open 6 days a week; closed on Sundays. The purchaser could look to open 7 days a week and open later hours. This would allow for some extra trade, therefore increasing income.
We feel that the garage could further benefit from a little extra advertising. This is a long-established business that thrives from loyal custom and word of mouth recommendations. A social media page would be a great cost effective way of marketing the business.
Brighton Motor does already have a business website. (www.brightonmotorservices.co.uk) The site has a brief description of services available. This site could be improved with an online booking system for the garage; this would be a great convenience to customers and staff.
This is a fantastic Freehold opportunity that would be perfect for an experienced purchaser. The business is fast paced and would be ideal for a partnership. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
Accounts available upon request.
The business is run and managed by our client and wife, with the help of three full time mechanics and three-part time petrol forecourt members of staff.
The business opening hours: -
Monday - Friday: 8am – 6pm
Saturday: 9am – 2pm
Brighton Motor Services is located in Redcar, North Yorkshire.
This petrol filling station is ideally located on a main road through the village of New Marske. This is an excellent location that benefits from heavy footfall and passing trade. Just a short walk from this location is residential housing, from which the business derives much of its trade. Next door to the property is a bar and further down the road is a pub and convenience store.
New Marske is a village set on a hill side just a mile south west of Marske-By-The-Sea. The former mining town has recently been commemorated and Errington Woods has undergone a transformation. The woods are popular with mountain bikers and hikers as there are several tracks and routes to follow.
The road on which the business is located connects to the A174 and runs directly into Marske-By-The-Sea. There are several bus stops close by and the closest train station is in Marske-By-The-Sea. This is a great location for the business to be located.
