Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Magor Motors. The garage has been established in this location for over 60 years. This is a family run business that benefits from repeat loyal trade, and boasts an exceptional reputation for its high quality of customer service and services provided. The owner is now looking to sell the garage, due to the desire to focus on other business interests.
The garage specialises in a variety of services and offer class 4 MOT’s. Some other services include, repairs, tyres, engine rebuilds, MOT failures and MOT preparation.
Our clients currently offer vehicle body work, this is run from a workshop at the back of the garage. This workshop area will not be included in the sale. The current owner will be using the rear workshop for a separate body repairs company, run on a casual basis. Included in the sale is the large workshop, forecourt, waiting room and reception area. Magor Motors services will offer repairs, servicing and MOT’s.
The business generated a turnover in the region of £285,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 27%. Most custom is from the locals that live in the area. The garage does little advertising and thrives from word of mouth recommendations. With a little advertising and marketing the garage could see an increase in custom. A Facebook page, website and leaflet drops could be something the purchaser considers.
Magor Motors would be a perfect first time purchase for a partnership looking to run a long-established, ready to run garage business. This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
Magor Motors is located in Magor, Caldicot, Monmouthshire.
The garage is situated in the residential village of Magor, part of the larger town of Caldicot. The garage is just minutes away from Magor village centre, where there is an abundance of retail outlets, pubs and restaurants. The village is in a great location and benefits from its central location from Newport and Bristol. A lot of passing trade derives from commuters, the village also has its own motorway service station, minutes away from the garage.
As of the 2011 census Caldicot had a population of circa 11,000, with Magor having around 6,000 of this figure. The large population allows for a generous amount of repeat loyal trade.
