The business benefits from ample off street parking facilities and is surrounded by a wealth of complementary businesses.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular vehicle body repair business in Norwich, Norfolk. The business was established by our client in 1985 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients` desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business is open 5 days per week and generates a healthy turnover in the region of 152,853 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 67%. Our client offers vehicle body repairs on cars, vans and motorhomes etc.

The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the excellent high quality of service offered, which has generated a very loyal client base with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. The premises boasts a large repair workshop, as well as a paint mixing room, small canteen and office area.

We feel the turnover could be increased by a small marketing campaign to highlight the services offered. A new owner could also establish a website to promote the business further. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to acquire an already well-established and busy vehicle body repair business with huge scope for future growth; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
