The business is reluctantly being put on the market as our client feels it is time to start looking at retirement

Ron Payne & Son is a local, independent garage. serving Hartlepool and the surrounding area.

Ron Payne & Son has been providing their customers with a highly effective and professional service. They are a Unipart Car Care Centre which means all parts fitted come with a nationwide 12000 mile or 12 month guarantee.

The business has been awarded the BSI Kitemark, a stringent standard that protects all aspects of their clients experience at the garage. Ron Payne & Son are convinced that this guarantee beyond all others will give confidence in the standard and commitment to quality for customers.

Ron Payne & Son service both domestic and light commercial vehicles.

The new owner could consider extending opening hours to the weekend and we believe the business would also benefit from a modest marketing and advertising campaign to attract new custom.

This is an ideal opportunity to acquire an already popular garage with huge scope for future development; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
