LOCATION
Bampton MOT & Service Centre occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located within the town of Bampton in Devon. The business is situated on an industrial park and is surrounded by complimentary businesses, therefore, benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from good car parking facilities to the front of the premises.

Bampton is a small town and parish in Devon. It is located close to the south-eastern corner of Exmoor and is on the River Batherm. According to the 2011 census, the town had a residential population of 3,412. Although Bampton is only a small town, it has a surprising range of local amenities including shops, pubs, restaurants, businesses and places to stay. Bampton has been famous for over 40 years for its floral displays.

The area of the business is served by the public transport system, with bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. The area is also served by the A-roads, with the A396 being within easy driving distance, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Taunton is approximately 20 miles away and Exeter is 23 miles away.

BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established garage and MOT service business in Bampton, Devon.

The business was established by our clients approximately 25 years ago and has been at the current site for the previous 7 years. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients' desire for a well-deserved retirement and to spent more time with family. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 300,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.

Our clients offer a variety of motor services including MOTs, brakes, clutches, batteries, exhausts, servicing, vehicle repairs, tyres, air conditioning, motorhome and caravan repairs, commercial vehicle repairs and diagnostics, to name a few. The property offers a very spacious 497 sq. metres of floor space, is extremely well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield for the very high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering Saturday trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the services offered. There is already a very informative website in place to advertise the business at www.bamptonmotgarage.co.uk.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already very busy vehicle repair business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
