Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Armson Automotive Engineers in Syston Leicester. The business has been operated by the current vendor for over 10 years in which time it has built up an enviable reputation for quality and customer service and due to the family relocating this very rare and exciting opportunity has now become available.
The business has built up a large local customer database with customers always returning to have their vehicle MOT tested and then for any remedial works to be carried out. Armson Automotive Engineers is the only testing station in the area and due to its location and accessibility it has ensured repeat business year after year creating a regular and reliable income stream for the owner.
This therefore represents an excellent opportunity for a new owner to acquire a long-established business with a regular income stream and huge growth potential by increasing the amount of tests undertaken and would therefore be ideal for either an established operator looking for an additional site or an individual or partnership already working in a similar trade looking for their first business venture with a long trading history and further growth potential. The current vendor has just had the class 4 (OPL) One Man Testing station fully serviced at a cost of over £7,000 therefore ensuring that this is a turnkey business opportunity.
The vendor who is an authorised AE examiner is also prepared to train the new owner to be fully certified for MOT testing to ensure a smooth transition of ownership and continuity of income. This therefore represents an excellent business opportunity being offered to the market with very affordable in-going and running costs.
The business is run and managed by the current vendors.
The opening hours are currently 8.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday & 9.00am to 1.00pm Saturday.
