Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market C R Motorcycles. This store was originally established in 1978 by our client, who is now looking to sell due to the desire to retire.
The business runs as a motorcycle service and repairs garage, and an MOT station. Turnover is further generated from the sales of motorbikes and pedal bikes of which they also offer repairs.
The current turnover for the business is an advised £30,200 per annum, with a gross profit of 68%. Our client currently runs the business at a steady pace to meet his needs. Therefore, with a new owner who is willing and determined, the turnover can be increased.
Over the years the business has earned a great reputation, with fantastic word of mouth referals. The new owner could look into setting up a website, to advertise products and the services available; targeting customers from further afield. The business sells new TGB Scooters for which it is a franchised outlet. Whilst also continuing to sell and service used scooters and motorcycles, primarily Honda. The business is also a franchised outlet for Tiger Cycles.
The business was originally motivated equally between Sales, Service and MOT’s, but in later years has become more focussed on Service and MOT’s. With a little more focus on the sales there could be a great increase in revenue made.
This is a perfect opportunity for a buyer looking for something they enjoy. The business is already successful and we highly advise a determind new owner to view this business.
