BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established mobility aid business, which is ideally located within the town of Ilford, Greater London.

The business was established by our client in 2006 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 55,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 41%.

Our client offers a wide variety of mobility aids including mobility scooters, power chairs, wheelchairs (for sale or hire), bath lifts, rollators, rise and recline chairs, toilet aids, everyday living aids walking sticks, covers for scooted and wheelchairs and bathroom aids, to name a few, as well being an agent for Acorn Stair lifts.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and 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. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the goods and services offered. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the goods offered, which could incorporate online ordering facilities.

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