The fairly big client data base of over 200 individuals , most of them returning customers judged by the number of invoices created so far (average 2.5 invoices per individual in 2 years). Please look below for an extensive list of the items included. I can provide support into getting the transfer as smooth as possible from an owner to another , including teaching all the knowledge we have about how the business operates, all the tips and tricks, clients approach , our vision about the brand and how it was promoted locally and online, clients information, suppliers deals, social media access and transfer, knowledge about the specialist work we currently do, etc. The Staff may want to remain subject to salary agreement (1 main mechanic/workshop manager and 1 general mechanic). The main mechanic/workshop manager is working here since the beginning and knows the business inside out, in my opinion he is a valuable part which can help the new owner quite allot in the transition period.
The industrial unit is located in Pitstone, Buckinghamshire , in a large and clean Industrial Business Park with great transport links to A41, M25 and M1. The unit is fairly new and modern , fitted with electric roller shutters , professional live linked monitoring alarm system and professional HD CCTV system. The size of the unit is approximately 2970 sq.
The main garage area is aprox 1550 sq. Ft and can fit 3 car lifts (2 two post lifts and 1 four post lift) , a tyre machine and a balancer, an alignment machine and multiple tool boxes, shelving and tyre racks, etc. Can fit approximately 10 cars inside if using the lifts aswell. The fabrication room is aprox 375 sq.And it fits 2 welding tables, 1 10 ton press, 2 welding machines MIG and TIG , a vice, various metal cutting tools, a professional roll cage tube bender and notching tool, sheet steel folding press, a tool box and bench and a chassis roller frame. The upstairs mezzanine office is aprox. Ft , it can be use as a customer waiting area , divided into small offices or 1 big office , storage area , etc.
Currently used for used parts storage and pool room. There is also a fairly large aprox.
Ft reception room / entrance office fitted with blue and silver professional office desk and chairs , filling cabinets, etc. There is a hallway , a fitted kitchen and a disabled toilet too.The unit benefits from 7 allocated car park spaces, but in reality , the space in front of it is huge , you can fit easily 20 cars. Lots of space to manoeuvre and test cars off the road (big yard) , very clean , flat and presentable location. The overall look of the garage is very smart and premium The floor was epoxy resin coated in light grey and our logo painted at the entrance. All the walls inside are painted white for good visibility and light reflection , there is a smart illuminated silver panel with our brand on it inside the garage , the branding on the outside front of the garage is done pretty smart and big , also individual letters composing our services we offer are displayed on a large surface of the garage. Speaking of costs , the plumbing and electricity was a big expense also , there is full compressed air plumbing with 3 air line exits , 3 phase electricity , all lifts and machinery are professionally wired. Tools , Machinery , Fixtures and Fittings. There are just too many to write down , but Im fairly sure you cannot find something that we dont have. The majority of them are big brands such as Wera, Snap-on , Dewalt, Mac Tools, etc. 1 Lincoln Mig Welder , 1 German make Stalhwerk Tig Welder , lots of welding supplies , even metal lengths and sheets in stock , Roll cage tube bender from JD Squared (best in the market) , Tube notcher, etc etc. Fixtures and Fittings : High quality and good looking complete office furniture, fitted kitchen , 2 tyre racks , 6 shelving units , 1 snap on tool box and 2 brushed metal wooden top work benches and tool boxes. Mobile work tables, mobile chairs, wheel skates, engine crane , engine stand, waiting area sofa and chairs etc.
2300 + Vat per month. Machinery leases : There are currently 2 leases in place (for the tyre machine, balancer and wheel aligner) from which I already paid 2 years out of 5 years. On a side, we are running a Professional Drifting Team competing in the National Drift Championship. This is my passion , more like a hobby than a profitable thing , therefore all the expenses such as Tyres (about 20 per competition weekend), Modifications for my 800hp Race car, Race fuel. Travel Expenses, Pit set-up, etc was accounted on the company expense as Marketing and Advertising for my business.
My race car is fully branded, same as my Pit set-up (gazebo, flags etc) , which indeed brings allot of attention towards the business whenever we go to events or demo days. This obviously put a massive strain on the company profit but again, obviously, this will not come as a package with the business, so you dont have to worry about these expenses. However , I might be open to sponsorship offers to keep the branding on my race car and my pit set-up if you consider this will help your business.
Growth potential and reason for sale : I believe the business is now running at 30% of its potential. I decided to sell it because I have another business which requires my presence full time and I realised is no point to neglect both of them and run them at 50% capacity.
Price : Having said all of these, the only thing I need to mention is the price, which in my opinion is as fair as it gets , taking into consideration what we are offering in terms of assets, the brand we built (clients portfolio), and the loss we made in the first year to sustain and build this new business from scratch (which Im not even taking into consideration as it would probably mean to double it). (I settle the lease finance). I believe I described the business as best and honest as possible , Im not trying to sell illusions or overestimate, its still a young business, built and ran properly to this point, which has massive growth opportunity, therefore I would like to attract only genuine buyers, so please if you are not in the possession of the funds or dont have any business loan arranged do not ask to be shown confidential and management details.
