- Excellent reputation
- Timely service
- Well equipped garage in great condition
- Strong relations with other garage owners
- Experienced and fully trained staff
A comprehensive car servicing business run by a team of well-trained professionals in Cornwall is now being brought to the market. Since its inception in 2009, the business has garnered a fantastic reputation as a reliable and thorough MOT Garage which provides a service tailored to meet the requirements of each customer’s vehicle.
Now, only up for sale due to other business interests of the owner, a new owner is now vital for the garage to continue running effectively. Ample opportunity for further growth is also available to a potential buyer.
Operating as an MOT garage for over a decade, the business has been providing a wide range of garage services to both cars and motorbikes inclusive of but not limited to inspection of brakes and clutches, exhaust repairs and replacements and steering checks. MOTs are also completed in a timely manner, with usually around 6-7 processed per day and 1,682 completed in the last 12 months. Well trained and highly knowledgeable staff are committed to upholding the business’s reliability through delivering a great service to the general public, attracting those from further afield who are looking for a complete bike MOT. Other local garage owners also bring vehicles to the business for MOTs.
Operations run from a well-fitted and CCTV-secured garage. Externally a large parking area hosts enough room for both car and staff parking. A double sized unit possesses fixed assets such as ramps, testing equipment and diagnostic equipment valued at around £30,000. The front entrance welcomes customers, with a reception to the side. Multiple bays are used for carrying out MOTs, with a separate bay for motorbike testing. A second unit is accessed via a rear entrance which holds an additional ramp. A mezzanine storage room also stores tyres. The website acts as an online shop window, displaying services offered and contact details. Its Facebook page bolsters its already strong word of mouth reputation.
Intelligent Business Transfer are pleased to present a popular and highly regarded MOT service and tyre garage, which is ideally located on a popular holiday route in North Cornwall. Its minimal competition, locality and reputation are pivotal to the company’s success and have all contributed to driving an impressively high turnover of £259,230.
Ideal for a trained mechanic or current garage owner, a new owner can make defined steps to increase the business’s success. Print marketing, such as leaflet drops outside the local vicinity, could be introduced to help expand the clientele base, as well as setting up social media platform to promote services and special offers. Clear, bold signage that directs passing trade on the A39 to the business could also be implemented and have a very positive impact on sales. Extending opening hours to weekends would also accommodate those customers who are only available to drop their vehicles off during non-working days.
Agreeing to stay on for a transitional period as required, the new owner is now looking for a committed individual to take this business further. They have tasked Intelligent Business Transfer with finding a suitable buyer.
