Facilities / Terms of Lease: Premises are a real strength of this business.

The premises is split between two buildings, the first has High Street frontage, with reception, parking, MOT Bay, basement storage access, is floor to ceiling glazed and would make a fine display area. The MOT Bay leads through to the rear building, that houses the main workshop, a second office, toilet facilities, customer waiting area, parking and has full, metalled off road access to the main high street and trunk roads. This second building has planning potential for conversion to residential use. The front part of the premises are leasehold. Current rent and rates are circa £14,000 p.a. The lease is renewable and for 10 years, with a 5 year break clause.

Potential Growth/Expansion: The business has enjoyed steady growth over recent years and this is expected to continue in light of its growing and loyal customer base. The site has room for expansion if need be and this could easily be achieved if a new owner wished to employ further personnel as the demand is already there. The tyre sales/fitting operation could easily be grown as this currently accounts for a small percentage of overall sales. There is also the opportunity to look at motorbike MOT provision as there are currently few motorcycle MOT stations in the area. The business does very little advertising and could certainly expand this activity with a more proactive approach. The business is well positioned to take maximum advantage of this growth as it occurs as it has the necessary infrastructure in place. The company would benefit from marketing its services more proactively. All work comes from word of mouth recommendations and referrals.  
   
Competition: The business has never felt the need to advertise bearing testimony to the fact that it enjoys exceptionally high levels of repeat business from a large and loyal customer base. There is however a comprehensive and attractive website detailing the services and facilities offered.  
   
Owner willing to train: The owner would be happy to help with a smooth transfer of company ownership and to stay on for an agreed period, subject to negotiation, to help the new owners, if so required.  
   
Reason for selling: Genuine retirement sale.
