BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very busy vehicle repair and Mot garage in Luton, Bedfordshire.

The business was established by our client in 2009 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's desire to re-locate. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 229,500 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 44%.

Our client offers a variety of services to maintain all types of vehicles in addition to prestigious vehicles, including repairs, services and class 4, 5 and 7 MoTs. The garage is equipped with the very latest tools and diagnostic equipment to ensure the highest possible standards.

The property boasts a very useful floor area of 401 square metres plus a mezzanine. The property is maintained to a very high standard, as well as being fitted out to suit the trade with full height roller shutter doors, three 2 x post ramps (2 of which are brand new) and a Mot bay.

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

We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the services offered. The business already has a very informative website in place to advertise the business at www.brdgarage.com.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner with drive and ambition to take this already thriving business to the next level, or it would be an excellent bolt-on for a similar business looking to expand; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
