Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market a thriving independent MOT garage with outstanding customer feedback and reputation. The garage comes with the added bonus of a large first floor office suite which could easily be utilised by a secondary or complementary business type.
The business ideally needs a manager to take over with a hands on approach and have experience in the industry.
The business is been offered for sale due to other business commitments of our client who only spends minimal working hours a few mornings each week in the garage. Any new owner could easily reduce the current labour costs and carry out all MOT services alone which would quickly take the current net profit up to £60,000 per year.
The business is a 100% unbiased MOT testing station offering professional MOT’s to all cars, class 4, 5 and 7 vehicles. There entire ethos is to carry out an honest MOT as their judgement is not impaired by any further repair services any similar garage may also offer.
They are proud to be a ‘Green’ coded testing station which uses full testing equipment less than 4 years old. Currently the garage completes 16-17 MOT’s per day at a price of £45 per test.
The Excellent website offers Google first page presence.
Our client invested in a fully computerised booking system which allows customers to book online as well as automatically send them a SMS text reminder when their next MOT is due.
Excellent reviews include 5/5 from the ‘Good Garage Guide - Honest John’ and 5/5 from 50 reviews on Facebook.
