The garage has been in this location for over 30 years, run by four brothers.
There is a car sales forecourt, diesel and petrol sale with Diesel sales circa 5,000 litres per week and Petrol sales circa 2,000 litres per week. The garage is also a long-standing repair workshop with a very good local reputation, boasting a generous amount of repeat loyal custom.
The business is being sold as the four brothers now want to take well-deserved retirements.
Included in the sale is a large four bedroom owners accommodation.
There is scope for development and there have been enquiries in the past to add an MOT bay via an extension to the front and also the property is in a development area, meaning that subject to planning the garage could be pulled down and houses built. The current house will remain as it is Grade II listed.
TENUREWe are advised this is a Freehold opportunity.
Monday to Friday: 8.30am - 5.30pm
Saturday: 8.30am - 1pm
In the past the garage was open all day Saturday and Sundays, but the four brothers now work 3 days each a week as they are cutting back their hours in readiness for retirement.
STAFFThe business is run and managed by our client, with the help of part time/full time members of staff.
