Hilton Smythe would like to welcome to the market this accident repair centre in Greater Manchester. The business was established in 1988 and has been in our client's ownership for the past 12 years in the current location. Only now is the business offered to the market due to our client's personal reasons. The business is open 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £220,000.
Our client offers a wide range of services including accident repairs, minor repairs, restoration, customisation, custom paintwork and alloy wheel refurbishment. The business provides a superior bodywork repair service to both public and corporate sectors with highly trained and experienced service engineers. The business has an excellent reputation within the area and a loyal customer base with a vast amount of repeat trade.
We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours by perhaps opening Sundays. There is also scope for a small marketing campaign to advertise the business and services provided. The business already has an excellent website in place. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
