Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular vehicle service centre that incorporates an engine tuning / performance centre for performance cars of all types.
The business was established by our client some 15 years ago and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire to retire from the industry. The business operates 5½ days per week and generates a steady level of income.
Our client offers a variety of services including:
• Pre-MOT inspection
• Mechanical repairs
• Engine diagnostics
• Engine remaps
• Diesel tuning
• Wheel alignment
• Air conditioning recharge service spare parts
• Some car accessories
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 and 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 engine tuning service via its racing development services and aftermarket 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. The garage would also benefit from a dedicated website to highlight the services on offer, along with the introduction of a MOT service for clients.
The business trades on its reputation for service and has outstanding future possibilities. It would potentially be an ideal acquisition to some similar sized or larger enterprise looking to increase its position and presence within the industry.
The business has a great online presence, keeping its Facebook page updated with photos and information. The Facebook page boasts circa 774 likes; this is great for maintaining custom and attaining new.
Very rarely do businesses of this calibre come to the open market therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment
The business is currently run by the owner along with 1 other full-time member & 1 trainee
