Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Terry's Tyres Auto Care Centre, a reputable, well established business which has been meticulously owned and run by our client for over 25 years.
Currently, the business is run at a pace to suit our client as he looks forward to retirement.
The business specialises in the sale and repair of tyres from private vehicles, the sale of car exhausts in addition to the undertaking of car repairs and fault diagnosis.
This profitable concern has established a loyal customer base, benefiting from repeat custom; however, due to the size and location of the site, we feel there is the potential to further expand the business by offering additional services, perhaps introducing a MOT station or progressing into car sales.
We believe there is huge potential for the business to further increase turnover and profit by increasing operating hours to include Saturdays and are advised there is considerable room to expand the business, through embarking upon a marketing campaign; currently the business does not undertake any real form of advertising.
We would highly recommend viewing this perfect walk in trading opportunity which offers the new owners a golden opportunity to expand this already profitable, reputable business.

The second bay houses 2 x post ramp, workbench, whilst the mezzanine floor offers a storage facility for tyres.

The spacious, well maintained workshop and garage is well signed, benefits from two huge bays and has ample space for customer parking.
Internally, the premises are well lit, extremely well equipped and offer a walk in opportunity for the new owners.
