Tenure: Leasehold

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy salvage, scrap metal and vehicle recycling business in the town of Runcorn, Cheshire. The business was established by our client in 2007 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s desire to relocate. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 200,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 40%.

The company recycles a wide variety of ferrous and non-ferrous metals including copper, lead, braze and brass, as well as cars, offering some of the best prices in the area. The business is Environment Agency Approved and holds a bespoke licence, which is the highest licence possible with regard to waste, therefore it can be added to or changed at any time. The business was also nominated for the 2014 Cheshire Business Awards in the Small Business Category.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the industry for the high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a lot of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The sale of the business includes all machinery, tools and vehicles. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours of the business. We also feel the business would benefit from the launch of a website to promote the business and the services offered. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
