Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this busy independent supplier and buyer of prestige, sport and performance motor vehicles in Plympton, Plymouth in Devon.

The business was established by our client in 2006 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market, due to our client's other business interests within the sector. The business currently operates 6 days per week, with appointment booking on Sundays, and as per the 2017 accounts generated a turnover in the region of 595,300, with a gross profit of approximately 9%.

Our client specialises in the sale of high end sports, performance and prestige vehicles, such as BMW, VW, Audi and Mercedes. The property boasts 150 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the quality of the vehicles and services offered, which has resulted in a very high volume of word of mouth recommendations.

Our client is more than happy to offer a new owner a handover period, to share his knowledge and experience he has gained from working within this sector.

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 offered. The business already has an excellent website in place, which is very informative and displays the cars available at
