BUSINESS
Price Open to Negotiation
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Blunsdon Coach Hire, originally founded by our client in 1977, with a well established loyal customer base.

The business has several contracts with local schools which have recently been renewed and valued at around 195,000. The business holds 8 national discs, 6 of which are active and 2 are in reserve, which are not renewable until 2019.

Included in the sale are 6 coaches:

2010 Cummins King Long - 49 Seats
2009 Scania Irizar i4 - 59 seats
2004 Scania Irizar - 53 seats
2004 Volvo Plaxton B7R 53 seats
2003 Mercedes Neoplan - 53 seats
1990 Volvo B10 - 53 seats

The current coaches are valued approximately over 200,000 and one of the coaches being worth 72,000.

We are advised that there is scope to increase the contract value by around 40,000, perhaps by expanding the private hire, holiday tours or by increasing coaches on the road to 8. We feel that with an injection of marketing and the introduction of a website would pay dividends.

This is a fantastic business opportunity and our client is happy to work alongside the new purchaser for a period of time offering assistance or would be happy to work as either the Transport Manager or as a Driver.
