Tenure: Leasehold

Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market P. M. Street AE. This long established garage was originally founded in the 1990's with our client successfully solely running the business since inception in 2011.

The business offers servicing and repairs to all types of vehicles, MOT preparation and repairs and also provides a collection and delivery service in the area. The business is very well known in the region and sees much repeat trade and benefits from word of mouth recommendations. The business currently reports a turnover in the region of 38,600 with a gross profit of 50% but has reported a higher turnover in previous years.

The workshop is a generous size and fully equipped to suit the trade. The business also benefits from a large forecourt with further gravelled area to the rear opening up the potential to perhaps introduce car sales. We also believe the business has huge potential for further growth and would benefit from a marketing and advertising campaign. Certainly, the introduction of a website and advertising on social media websites to further promote awareness of the business would be advantageous. A new owner could also extend opening hours to cover weekend trade.

The fantastic location would also lend to a possible change in direction and would be a perfect site for a classic car restoration business, indeed, the business was previously a Rolls Royce specialist.

This is a fantastic lifestyle business which genuinely comes to the market as our client wishes to concentrate on other interests.
