Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this very well-established MOT, repair and servicing specialist, offering an easily accessible location within a large building, having workshop and MOT bay.
You also have a large 3 bedroom flat arranged over 2 floors attached to the garage with its own separate access which is currently rented out.
On the ground floor there are 2 large rooms which are currently used as storage rooms by the garage but could easily be used to make the flat into a 3-storey house as it was before.
The business carries out class 4 MOT’s, with a very strong and established local following. They also carry out repairs and serving and so much more.
The business itself has been run by the current owners for more than 30 years now and is very well known and established in the area, with long standing repeat and referral customers. They are now looking towards a well-earned retirement.
Even though this is a very strong and successful business, it would also greatly benefit, by adopting a far more vigorous marketing policy, with online advertising, use of social media and a good quality website, together with longer hours including Saturday opening. They could also look to tap into local commercial contracts.
An internal inspection is very highly recommended to appreciate the potential and property on offer.
The business is currently run by the owners and one other full-time members of staff
