Business profile:
This company was established in 1991 and over the years has established itself as one of the leading used car retailers in the region. Over the last eighteen years it has built up an enviable database of customers who not only use the service and MOT facility but also source their vehicles from the business. Because the company has been trading for so long they can boast of supplying several generations of whole families many of who have introduced their friends and associates to the dealership.

The sales operation sells around two hundred and ten used vehicles a year covering all client requirements from £3000 cars to £25,000 luxury vehicles. On average the operation holds around thirty-five well presented cars and stock is sourced from local franchised dealers, on line auction houses and known and trusted traders. The business is an approved buyer for BMW and Audi ex company cars. They are also a buyer of Motability vehicles

Every vehicle is prepared for sale on site by the in house valetor. Any refurbishment or service requirements are catered for in the large and well equipped work shop that also has a small paint shop facility.
Facilities:The premises consist of a forecourt, reception area, two car showrooms and seven offices, a kitchen and two toilets. The large workshop has one four poster and four two poster ramps. Alongside the MOT bay is a body shop with spray room and paint mixing machine plus tyre fitting, balancing and tracking equipment. There is ample room for the valeting bay. There is a small parts department that is well supported by local motor factors, which is close to hand.
Competition:The operation advertises in the local papers and on the Autotrader website. Key to their success is the amount of attention paid to farming the database which has twenty five years worth of customer information in its archives. Customers are sent out service reminders every six months and annual MOT notification. This not only keeps the workshops busy but also helps to maintain a relationship with the sales department.
Sale Reason:After a long and successful career the senior partner has decided to take early retirement.
