The business has built up a sterling reputation in the area during this time and provides full repair, servicing, maintenance, and MOT testing services to the local community and beyond.


Since 1990 this garage has proven itself to be reliable partner for the repair and maintenance of automotive, commercial and marine diesel fuel injection engines & systems; which for automotive customers includes major brands such as Bosch, Delphi, Denso and Siemens and in the marine sector, major engine manufacturers including, CAT MAK, MAN B&W, Wartsila and Ruston.


The business also maintains excellent relationships with all the most important fuel injection manufacturers enabling it to meet every customer’s service needs or parts requirements.


This profitable business has established itself as a market leader in the region with an enviable reputation for quality and service; it has a particular expertise and specialism with diesel engines and injection systems for both large commercial and smaller domestic units. Because of this and its reputation for quality and reliability the business enjoys very high levels of referrals and repeat business from a loyal following of customers.  The majority of clients are commercial automotive customers and the marine aspect of the business is growing steadily.

The vendor has an excellent team of 12 x full-time employees, most of whom are technicians, who take care of the general servicing and repair parts of the business leaving the vendor to manage administrative and financial matters. Staff are fully conversant with the latest workshop techniques and engine management systems and the business is compliant with all necessary health and safety regulations and codes of practice.


Location is ideal being close to major road networks and busy South coast resort towns and also has ample parking so customers can leave their cars and pick up at a convenient time later in the day if need be.


Growth and Expansion:


The business has enjoyed steady trade over many years and this is expected to continue in light of its growing and loyal customer base. The site has room for expansion if need be and this could easily be achieved if a new owner wished to employ further personnel as the demand is already there.


The business is well positioned at this time to develop further its marine diesel and larger vehicle commercial business.


The business does very little advertising and could certainly expand this activity with a more proactive approach.  The business is ready & prepared to take maximum advantage of this growth as it occurs as it has the necessary infrastructure in place.
