BUSINESS DESCRIPTION
Specialist Garage for Mechanical Car Repair & Servicing plus Class 4 MOT Station
Ref. AL239
Location : Ipswich
Asking Price : GBP 260,000
Originally started in 1982, the vendor bought this well established garage in 2002.

The garage specialises in high quality mechanical car repair, servicing and is also a busy Class 4 MOT centre. The garage has established a fantastic reputation for high standards of service and value for money. This has generated a repeat private client base with some business referred from main dealers.

The well fitted and equipped high end workshop premises comprise of 2 x 2 post hydraulic ramps, 1 x 4 post ramp.

The garage also operates a professional breakdown and recovery service for many main dealers and body shop businesses.

Sage software is used for accounts, invoicing and payroll.

Market / Competition / Non-Competition Agreements
The business operates on recommendations by customer word of mouth and referrals. Advantages to improve profitability are being lost as there has been no investment in a company website to promote the services on offer. Undertaking a local marketing campaign could also bring in additional business.
