Description

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market G and R Motors. Established in the 1900’s our client has solely run and managed the business since inception in 1987. Our client has worked tirelessly to establish the business to the profitable concern it is today.

Revenue is derived 70% from car repairs and servicing and 30% from car sales of all vehicle types. The business has an excellent reputation and is very well known in the area. G and R Motors sees a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals.

The business benefits from an extremely high turnover and net profit, which is a credit to our client. According to the 2015 accounts, turnover is in the region of £211,840 with gross profit at around 54%.

We believe the business still has the potential to generate additional income. Perhaps by employing another mechanic or introducing a website and a modest marketing campaign to promote the car sales aspect of the business to customers further afield.

This is an outstanding freehold business, fully fitted to suit the trade and we would encourage early viewing to fully appreciate this superb turn-key venture which genuinely comes to the market as our client looks towards a well-deserved retirement.
