Aspire is pleased to offer for sale this garage services, repairs and MOT business, ideally situated in Warrington, Cheshire. The business operates from a single storey building, set on a secure light industrial estate, which offers excellent access along with private parking. Public transport and the local shops are a short walk away.
Warrington town centre is close by, where there is a wide range of shops, businesses and amenities. The vibrant town is a popular residential location and also draws visitors from further afield.
The area is serviced by a number of A-roads, with the M6, M56 and M62, all less than 5 miles away.
The business has been operated by the current owner for over 40 years and is only now offered for sale due to retirement. The owner has developed a loyal, customer base, providing repairs and servicing to all makes and models of vehicles, along with class 3 and 4 MOT’s. The business has an extensive client list database and regularly sends out MOT reminder letters, which generate much repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
Currently run at a pace to suit, there is ample opportunity to expand the business. Employing additional staff and extending the existing range of services available would increase turnover.
There is a web-site in place, which could be further enhanced with the addition of e-commerce facilities.
The business is located within a purpose built, single storey workshop, with prominent frontage onto the street and ample signage. The unit is secured by a 12-foot roller shutter door, which is ideal for van access.
Internally the open-plan workshop is fully equipped for the trade with 3 x 4-post ramps, 1 x 1 post ramp, and ample workspace and tools. There is an MOT test bay, with customer waiting area and office, along with a reception area and office. A mezzanine area offers further office space.
An additional workshop to the side is used for tyre replacements and repairs and is racked for tyre storage. There is space for up to 6 cars. Again, there is a mezzanine level with office, staff canteen and WC’s.
