Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Hurstbourne Garage. The business was originally established by our clients in 2006. The garage is now being offered to the market, due to our clients desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a vehicle repair garage offering a range of services. The garage offer classes 1, 2, 4, 5 and 7 up to 3.5t light commercial MOT’s. Much trade is from garages that don’t have MOT bays themselves. The garage also offers repairs for motorcycles, this includes quads and scooters. Over the years our clients have built up the business to an exceptional standard. Our clients have deals with local vehicle dealerships, this allows for a generous amount of repeat loyal trade.

Our clients also have an informal deal with the council for the repair of all their vans. The purchaser should look to focus on gaining contracts with local companies to boost the repeat trade.

The business generated a turnover in the region of £280,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 66%. This is an excellent turnover with scope to be increased. The business hardly advertises and thrives from word of mouth recommendations. Advertising through Yell.com would be a great way of gaining further custom. Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter are great cost effective ways of marketing. The business does have a website. (www.hurstbournegarage.co.uk) An online booking system could further benefit the site and would allow for convenience to both customers and staff.

There are two members of staff which are currently trained to conduct MOT’s. Training more staff in these services would allow for an increase in MOT’s each week.

This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
