Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this busy car repair and MoT business, which is ideally located in Hanwell, London. The business was established by our client in 1987 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market, due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £60,700 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 36%, according to the 2015 accounts. Our client offers a variety of vehicle services including repairs, services and MoTs on all class 4 vehicles. The garage performs between 80 – 85 MoTs on average per month. Our client also has a retail unit providing a range of car accessories, oils and parts, as well as being a MoT waiting area. The property boasts 141 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent services offered, as well as employing an extra mechanic, which could increase the workload. The business already has website in place to promote the business at This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level, or it would make an excellent bolt-on business for an existing garage wishing to expand; therefore, early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
