Highly rated Personal Car Valeting business for sale
Please quote reference B06447
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market, The Valet Centre.
The Valet Centre was founded by the current owner in 2019 when he identified a need in the area for personal car valeting and he had great plans for the business. Alas the business is being sold, albeit reluctantly only because the owner is too busy with his other businesses to devote time to this one.
The business really is a great business opportunity for a new buyer with all fixtures and fittings and equipment included in the sale along with a bespoke online booking service and website etc. A new owner would have to rename the business as the owner wishes to retain the current name.
The current owner has spent a considerable amount of time and money on this business and it is all ready to start trading immediately so represents a turnkey business opportunity for a lucky new owner.
Scope to Improve
- Advertising and marketing campaign
- Website, there is a website included in the sale but this would have to rebranded
- Maximise the use of social media platforms particularly Facebook and Twitter
- Employ additional staff members to increase the customer numbers
- Consider introducing a customer loyalty scheme etc.
- Prime trading position on a modern and busy industrial estate close to motorway
- All fixtures, fittings and equipment included in sale
- Low running costs with inexpensive rent and no business rates
- Ideal owner managed or partnership business
- Current owner happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success.
Further financials can be made available upon further request.
