REF 6421 – Freehold MOT & Vehicle Repairs Centre
Blacks Business Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this Freehold MOT & vehicle repairs centre located in a busy commercial area of Liverpool, Merseyside.
Autoclutch Spares was established by our clients in 1979 and occupies an enviable trading location on Prescot Road. The business offers a range of repairs and services and is also an MOT station. Our clients have established a superb reputation and large, repeat customer base without the use of social media or a website. This is an area ready for development by a new owner. The space here would suit lots of different uses from wholesale manufacturing to a development opportunity for a like minded owner.
The business and property occupy a prominent trading position in a mainly commercial area of Liverpool. This is a busy main road with excellent access to Liverpool city centre, the area is well linked by the M62 and A5080 with superb public transport links and there is parking available immediately outside for 2/3 cars.
REASON FOR SALE
The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operating team, as our clients are looking to retire. Therefore, the business is offered for sale and presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.
BUILDING LAYOUT AND DESIGN
This is a large, single storey, freehold property with additional outside toilet block. The business is well branded with signage displayed to the front above a main road entrance. Inside, the property is very spacious, with large workshop/garage area which is fully equipped with 5 ramps, rolling road and full MOT station. The interior is well maintained and well presented. There is also a storage area and private administration office. The office has a separate entrance. The spare room has previously been used as a spray room – this is currently let at £100 per week. The additional outhouse is used as a toilet block.
The business is currently operating with only one full time member of staff employment. A new owner can expect to work on a full time basis and would benefit from some additional staff to maintain workload.
Autoclutch Spares has traded solidly since opening. We are advised that the business currently has an annual turnover of £28,620 with gross profit of £24,699 for the MOT section, and a large amount of referral work is given away. This is a huge opportunity for a new owner to take all of this referral business. Full financial details are available upon viewing.
The rates payable are zero. The rateable value is £8,500 per annum, but this is not the amount you will pay. Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable.
This freehold property is located in a superb trading position and is occupied by a long established, well known business with a large customer base. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the reintroduction of rented space within this extensive property and the introduction of a website and social media presence. A strong marketing drive would also be beneficial. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.
