Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established and busy Ford Transit van maintenance, repair and parts specialist in Rishton, Lancashire. The business was established in 1990 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2014. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s other business commitments. The business operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £110,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 67%. Our client offers servicing and repairs to Ford Transit vans by highly skilled mechanics, as well as a vast selection of reclaimed spare parts for Ford Transit vans and other commercial vehicles. All the parts are fully checked, cleaned, inspected and assessed before being offered for sale. The business receives a lot of retail sales and also online sales, they offer delivery anywhere in the UK. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the industry for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The business is also advertised within local builder’s merchants such as Build Base and Howarth Timber. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering Saturday trading. A new owner could also embark on a small marketing campaign to advertise the business and the services offered.
