Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular MOT and vehicle sales and service centre in Droylesden, Greater Manchester.

The business was established in1983 and has been in our clients` careful ownership since 2004. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients` other business commitments and desire for re-location. The business is currently open 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 362,100 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 35%.

Our clients` offer a variety of services including vehicle sales, MoT`s class 4,5 and 7, bodywork, vehicle repairs and servicing, as well as being a supplier of 4 x 4 parts and accessories. The business is also an outlet for Britparts, Allmakes and Bearmack. Our clients` have built up an enviable reputation within the industry, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a lot of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We have been informed by our client that he has been approached in the past by supermarkets regarding the large plot of land, which we feel offers an excellent development opportunity.

We believe there is scope to increase the turnover by holding a small marketing campaign to highlight the business and the services offered. A new owner could also establish a website to promote the business. The premises are well-equipped to suit the trade with a large range of tools and equipment.
This is an ideal opportunity for a new owner to acquire a busy garage with an excellent reputation and scope for future development; therefore early viewing of this desirable business must come highly recommended.
