Business History
Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer this rare vehicle builders and repairing business which is being offered to the market due to our clients desire to take well deserved retirement. The business was established by our client in 2001 for building/fitting out narrowboats, successfully completing 35 new boats and 4 refitted boats by 2010. While achieving this, in 2005 our client had started diversifying the business with the intention of building horse boxes. As the new business venture started to take off our client has continually improved the business introducing new lines and income streams, which have enhanced the business massively, offering services from every aspect required including; servicing, MOT's, accident repair, refurbishmnt and reworks. Our client advises us the annual turnover currently runs at £120,000 which is derived from offering services and adjustments on horseboxes which our client advices the work load 'has continued to grow' offering huge potential for scope in developing new builds. As well as offering services for a few specialist vehicles,motor homes, light commercial work and even caravans. Our client also currently benefits from all the skills 'in house' to offer quality work on joinery, engineering, metal work and coach building. Furthermore, our client also offers a full inspection and report service on vehicles. Due to the business' strong reputation it benefits highly from the level of regular and repeat trade together with custom from good word of mouth recommendations. We are adviced the horsebox work is currently split approximately 80% 7.5 tonne boxes and above, 15% 3.5 tonne boxes and 5% trailers. Despite our client having taken a step back from full conversions and builds due to their desire to concentrate specifically on repairs, there is a huge scope to reintroduce this service and generate further income. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established specialised and bespoke business, with low overheads, and as such early viewing is strongly advised.
