BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy garage business, which is ideally located within the town of Atherton, Greater Manchester.

The business was established by our client in 1971 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 26,900 per annum, with a good gross profit, according to the 2014 accounts.

Our client serves the local community and offers all bodywork and paintwork to most makes and models of vehicles. The spacious property boasts 394 sq. metres and is in good condition. The property could be sold as an ongoing business, or could be a redevelopment project, subject to planning permission.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area, for the high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in a loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover, by extending the opening hours, as our client currently works on an as and when basis. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to promote the business.

This could be a good investment for anybody who would like to rent out the premises.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a garage business in a prime trading location; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended.
