Long Established Garage With Little Competition
Doncaster, South Yorkshire
Ref: 2919 F
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Beechfield Garage. This garage is well known in this location as the business was originally established in the 1970’s. Our client first took over the business in 1983, but is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
The garage operates as an MOT and vehicle service garage, providing a service to most vehicle types and brands. We are advised the business is currently generating an advised turnover of around £100,000 per annum with a gross profit of 46%. The business benefits massively from lack of competition in the area, and receives much of its trade from the locals.
The business is currently run at a steady pace to suit our client. We believe there is scope to boost turnover with a hard working new owner who is looking to buy an already successful garage. The buyer could also look into opening on weekends, and/or looking into boosting the car sales lot.
The business currently has a small amount of stock for the car sales, which are currently advertised on the businesses website. www.motdoncaster.com we feel this side of the business could be increased by advertising on Autotrader or other websites.
The website is currently used to advertise the business and promote services on offer. If the new buyer was to advertise on social media sites such as Facebook, they will be able to advertise for free.
On the first floor of the premise is a self-contained flat from which the owner could rent out to generate some extra income.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid missing out on this brilliant profitable garage.
