Business Profile

This very well-known and profitable business formed in the South West of England by the Vendor over 24 years ago. Since that time, it has significantly grown and is well known nationally for its services and variety of products and great value for money. The business currently offers the following services:

• Motorcycle Service
• Tyre fitting centre
• Fault finding & diagnostics
• Class 1&2 MOT testing station
• Authorised suspension service centre
• Race tuning and track & race machine preparation
• Dyno tuning services
• Engineering services
• Retailer of bike parts & accessories
• Good web presence & additional online store

The company has secured area relationships with numerous branded companies, whereby further accounts in the area would not be granted.

The aims of the business are simple, to ensure that every customer who purchases from them is 100% satisfied with their service, ensuring that they will return, should the need ever arise to maintain a client’s motorcycle to the highest race-tuned standards or replace products. The vendor and his staff are proud of the fact that the best advert for the company is word of mouth, and in this time of increased competition strives to maintain its offer of personal and attentive first class service. Quality of product, personal service and after sales care has been the key to the success of the business and something the current owner takes particular pride. All customers are treated individually.

They are proud suppliers of all major manufacturers and brands associated with National and International Motorcycle Sport.

No small part in the ability of this business to grow and sustain its profitability is due to the quality of its people. The vendor is a Motorcycle Motorsport enthusiastic & successful engineer & retailer and he is supported by equally motivated, highly skilled and knowledgeable staff.

This excellent business is a turn-key operation that is ready to go.

Customer Service:

Clients include private individuals requiring more usual MOT, servicing and parts needs or the more specialised race-tuning and preparation services.

Excellent customer service is developed from the strong personal commitment and enthusiasm of the vendor, which also runs through the staff and has become very much the company focus. The professional team considers simply that happy customers will come back or refer the company to new customers and on this basis it has maintained levels of service quality intended to best ensure this.

Key Strengths:

• Over 24 years successful trading
• Motivated staff
• Enviable reputation
• Well stocked parts and accessories
• Referrals
• Full managed turnkey operation
• Professional, attention to detail, reliable in the extreme
• Well established & internationally well known

Key Opportunities:

The business has enjoyed steady growth since inception and is well positioned to take maximum advantage of future growth as it occurs.

There is a significant opportunity for further increase in margin which could be achieved by a simple increase in rates and charges, something that the current client-base can support and has been resisted by the current vendor and by developing the potential that lies within web based retail activities.

Adopting a more pro-active approach to advertising and marketing could greatly improve turnover and profits. Being a retailer with such a reputation among the highly technically aware customer base of this specialist sport, is a definite advantage over competition.
