Marquands of Callington is located in Kelly Bray, Callington, Cornwall.

The business is set in an excellent trading location on an arterial road in the town. There is an array of business in this town that compliments this car dealership and garage well. There is a motor parts store, tool hire company, car garage, scrap yard and many more companies around.

Kelly Bray is a popular town that has a large amount of local independent businesses. The town's population has been increasing over the past years, allowing for the towns retail outlets to expand, including Marquands of Callington.

The dealership is set on the A388, this is an arterial road that runs through the centre of Kelly Bray, from the A30 at Stourscombe, down to the A38 in Plymouth. This is a great location for the business, due to the heavy amount of footfall and passing trade that goes through this area. There is a large amount of trade from locals who live in the surrounding towns, however, there is a lot of interest from those passing by the showroom.

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Marquands of Callington. This business was originally established by our client in 1996 and was trading under a different name. Marquands of Callington has become a well-known name in the town.

The owner is now looking to sell this well-established business, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement. Our client has run this business to a very high standard, this would make a perfect walk-in trading opportunity for any experienced purchaser.

The business runs as a car dealership selling a variety of vehicles, such as saloons, hatchbacks, vans, sports cars, coupes, from the large site that can stock around 65 vehicles. The dealership also specialises in classic cars, these are kept indoors. The vehicles are not included in the sale but are available to purchase upon separate negotiation.

This multi-facet business also has two large garage workshops, one of which could be used for MOT's. The garage did offer MOT's and repairs, but no longer does. The garages are simply used for sales vehicles. This could be something the purchaser looks into re-introducing. The equipment is not included, however, all office equipment is.

The new owner should look into offering more garage services, in order to boost trade further. Opening longer hours could also allow for more potential custom.

On the first floor of the property is unused space, this floor could be utilised and revamped into offices. These could be used by the business or let out for an extra monthly income.

This business would be a great investment for a purchaser with experience in the trade, who would be willing to work hands on at the dealership. This could also be perfect as a bolt-on business for those larger companies looking to expand.

Our client has looked into the options of 18 flats, this could be something the new owner looks into with planning permission.

This is a fantastic Freehold opportunity that is not to be missed, the property is an excellent size, perfect for the trade. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of this well-established car dealership and garage.
