Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this immaculately presented, well-established and very popular MOT station and vehicle repair business in Longniddry, East Lothian; known as Longniddry Garage. Longniddry Garage has been exceptionally well run and was established by our client in 1984 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire to retire. Our client offers a variety of services including class 4 MOT testing, mechanical repairs, services, engine diagnostics, engine remaps, diesel tuning, wheel alignment, air conditioning recharge service spare parts, some car accessories and also petrol sales. This fully equipped garage can carry out repairs on all makes and models. They also stock a good selection of spare parts including tyres, engine oils, brake discs, pads and batteries to name a few. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield for the high quality of the services and parts offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. 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 highlight the business and the services offered, or perhaps branch out into the car and van hire business and also car sales (due to property layout) along with the introduction of a dedicated website and also offering a recovery breakdown service. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

The business is run and managed by the current owner, with the help of 3 full time staff.

The business operates the following hours: Monday – Friday 08:30 – 17:30Saturday - Sunday: Closed
