Well Established Camper Conversion Company - Jc Vans For Sale

Weymouth, Dorset, UK
Asking Price:
£150,000 Inventory / Stock included
Turnover:
£500K - £1M
Net Profit:
£50K - £100K

I'm currently in the process of relocating to Cornwall with my family to start a new venture of running a small holding so cannot relocate the business.

I started JC Vans back in Nov 2013 and have built it up to what it is today. We work on customer owned vehicles, from simple modifications to full camper conversions. We also do vehicle sales and self generate work by converting our own vans to sell on our forecourt.

The business has its own CNC router that cuts out flat pack furniture, this has loads of different designs and products saved on the computer to use. It is as simple as loading a sheet of material and pressing go!

Another big asset is our MAHA LPS 3000 dyno that is used for remapping vehicles. We tune most makes and models and are part of the Pendle Performance tuning team. With the right marketing in place, this alone could generate in excess of £120k profit.

The business currently has 2 directors and 2 staff. Both directors will be leaving when the business is sold. 1 oversees the day to day running of the business and the other runs the CNC machine and builds the furniture.
The other 2 staff are fully trained up to do all jobs on the vans that come through the workshop, 1 is also fully trained on the remapping and dyno.

It would require someone to run the office and another in the CNC machine. A full hand over period and training can be put into the terms of sale.

Annual rent is £28,000 with 4 years remaining on a 10 year lease. It does have the option in the lease to renew at the end of the term.

Location:

Located on the Granby Industrial Estate in Weymouth, this is the main trading estate for the area and only 5 mins away from the train station.

Premises Details:

The main workshop can comfortably house 6-7 vans to be worked on. Out the front it has a nice modern and light reception area and a separate private office. The reception area has a toilet and small kitchenette.

Inside the main workshop it also has a tyre fitting bay, CNC/Wood workshop and a purpose built dyno cell for the remapping.

Above the main workshop and dyno room is an enclosed mezzanine floor. Most of which we use for storage although a few years back we had a full upholstery section up here also. There is also a CAD design office, staff room and other storage rooms.

There is also another toilet in the workshop and a side staff entrance to the workshop.

We have also taken not he lot next door from the same landlord. This is mostly land for vehicle storage and sales but does have a small workshop that we were in the process of turning into a valeting bay. This has an annual rent of £13,200 which is on a month to month rental basis.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

We have only ever worked specifically on VW Transporter vans, there is the potential to open up to any make or model vehicle which with more staff involved would see the order book go though the roof. My passion has always been VW's so did not want to go down this route.

Competition / Market:

Many businesses have come and gone over the years. We are one of a few well established conversion companies that strive from having a good reputation that we have built up over the years.

Reasons for selling:

Relocating to Cornwall soon and will be running a small holding. Completely different change in career. It was always our dream to do this and we have said if we do not do it now, we will never do it!
