The town is well known for its tourist's attention due to the great heritage that the town has. There are also a range of things to do in the town whether that be sightseeing or hiking.

BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Gilesgate MOT & Service Centre. The business was originally established by our client in 1995. The owner has thoroughly enjoyed running the garage in this location and has advised us there is a generous amount of repeat loyal trade. This is down to its long establishment and the brilliant word of mouth reputation that the garage has.

Our client is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement. The business is currently generating an advised turnover of around 100,000 per annum. This is a great turnover that is generated from MOT testing, services, repairs, breakdown recoveries and the sale of tyres.

We feel the garage could benefit from a body shop this would boost trade and is complimentary to this trade. There is a recovery truck that is available on separate negotiation, this is used for the recovery breakdowns. The recovery service is popular and should be promoted more. By advertising the business there should be a clear increase in custom.

The business has a great website www.gilesgatetestcentre.co.uk which promotes the services available from the garage. We feel this could be better with an online booking system, this would be easier for customers to make appointments and also more convenient.

This location benefits the business as customers can leave their vehicles at the garage to be fixed whilst shopping at the local retail park. The purchaser should look to advertise the business on the retail park with posters, banners, leaflets or in many other ways.

This is a brilliant opportunity for any purchaser looking for this type of business in a highly profitable area. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
