Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this car dismantler and spare parts retailer business in Kidderminster, Worcestershire. The business was established in 1982 by our client.
The business is only now being offered to the market due to our clients desire to take a well-deserved retirement. The business is open 6 days a week and generates a turnover in the region of £41,000 per annum with a superb gross profit of approximately 83%.
Kidderminster Car Dismantlers is a long established car dismantler and spare parts retailer with an excellent reputation and vast repeat customer base. The business is a retailer of spare car parts, alloy wheels and tyres, which are acquired from breaking cars. Revenue is also derived from scrap metal dealing.
The business has all the necessary licences required by law and they are fully transferable and include:
• Scrap Metal dealer licence
• Waste carrier licence
• Hazardous waste licence
• Authorised treatment facility
• Established use certificate
The site offers myriad possibilities for a change of use, subject to any necessary planning permissions and would lend itself to a self-storage facility, taxi business, builder's storage or the possibility of residential building. The site is large enough for the possibility sections of it to be sublet to other businesses to generate multiple income streams.
We feel the business could benefit from an e-commerce website to offer online sales, the business also has the potential to offer motor repairs using the garage on the premises. Extending opening hours could also prove very beneficial for the business.
Our client has advised us they would be happy to participate in a handover, if required by the new purchaser.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this well-established business to the next level; therefore, an early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Large industrial site, briefly summarising:-
The business occupies a three acre site in a secluded position at the end of a long private road fronting a canal. The main feature of this business is the size of its yard which has been fully tarmac'd over the years at some considerable cost to the current owner.
The main shop area is large and spacious and secure with multiple windows, creating a bright and airy customer waiting area. There is a long counter in front of a sales office with desks and feature wood burning stove.
Access to the premise is limited because of the 12ft 6 bridge.
The main shop area leads to the workshop. The workshop is of a large and spacious size with space for multiple vehicles. The room features high ceilings and fluorescent lighting.
The workshop is equipped with a Dexion type heavy duty shelving for storage of spare parts, section used as a tyre bay with tyre racking and a tyre fitting machine with perimeter shelving for further storage, a number of industrial type work benches and secure cabinets for the safe storage of tools, purpose built racking houses an array of different spare parts for cars. There is a considerable amount of room for additional storage as required.
Connected to the workshop is a lean to building, which provides under cover storage for two vehicles and also incorporates heavy duty racking for the safe storage of larger mechanical spare parts.
There is a depollution bay which meets with current legislation for the safe dismantling of cars and nearby are two secure steel containers used for the safe storage of tools and tyres and fenced off to provide secure storage for further tyres and a large number of different types of alloy wheels.
At the far end of the large yard is a fenced off area which could be sublet if required and would ideally lend itself to use as perhaps a builders or scaffolding yard or any business where an outside storage facility could prove useful.
Furthermore there is a large detached garage close the business entrance which could also be sublet and has previously been rented out to a car repair business, this is currently used as further storage but could quite easily be fenced off to allow a business to be run independently
The business does not have mains electricity, however a generator provides the necessary power at minimal cost.
Included in the sale is a hydraulic car crushing machine, heavy duty crane for the lifting of cars, forklift truck and two recovery trucks and two heavy duty platforms used when a car is being stripped of its components.
Security and signage:
The premises are secured with large heavy duty steel gates at its entrance and well maintained perimeter fencing. The business is well signed from the main road.
