Garage for Sale

There are many reasons to find a garage for sale: you might be an existing business owner who’s looking to expand. You could be an experienced mechanic, taking the first steps to owning your own garage. You may just be a passionate petrol head, searching for an exciting challenge – to take your career to fifth gear. 

Garages are also resilient businesses – even during a recession or pandemic, people still need cars. In fact, the motor services and repairs sector is booming, with UK motorists spending £21.1 billion each year on maintenance and repair. British cars are among the world’s best kept, as we spend 12% more on car maintenance annually than the average global spend.

But for every reason to embrace finding a garage for sale, there’s an additional factor to bear in mind. Location is crucial – garages alongside main roads and near city centres will often net your business more traffic. Competition is key – naturally, you don’t want to be located too close to your competitors. As is reputation, as a service industry that relies on trust, buying an existing garage also means taking on the goodwill that they have – or sometimes haven’t – built up. 

That’s why our listings have been carefully selected to give our buyers the best chance of success. Each one of our garages are carefully considered, designed to appeal to a range of entrepreneurs, with unique requirements when it comes to size, location and price point.
