Reconditioned motor parts website for sale
Location: United Kingdom
This an old established business ( 1972 ) that has moved with the times and used technology to increase its market to national and european levels, and even beyond. Based in Berkshire this business once only served its local town. Today with the aid of its website and other selling platforms it supplies reconditioned parts virtually worldwide, but the core business is UK based.
Specialising in buying and reconditioning motor parts from alloys to interiors to full engines this business has taken advantage of the recession, and ever increasing manufacturers new prices. Situated on the edge of an industrial estate it boasts large workshop, indoor and outdoor storage areas, offices, kitchen area, toilets, large yard, commercial waste disposal / recycling containers, scrap yard, portacabin office, secure fencing and gates, Astra van, transit van, car transporter, 7.5 tonne lorry and mobile crane.
The business is run by the owner ( who took over in 1988 ), and 10 staff - 5 full time mechanics, accounts person, secretary, order processor, a picker and dispatcher, along with 1 part time cleaner and 1 part time general helper. Most staff have been with the business at least 7 years.
The website showcases an extensive range of auto parts for most cars, allowing users to register and purchase parts for delivery by post or carrier. Products are added and orders processed by the order processor, who also deals with customer enquiries, and maintains stock on other websites as well.
We understand the website is adequate but could do with a facelift, although it produces around 100,000 visitors p/m -the conversion rate of about 1% could be improved on. Sales last year show approx £1.9million with approx 22% gp. Stock at valuation is approx. £450,000 at current levels.
The sale includes the freehold, fixtures and fittings, equipment, website, domain name and hosting, computer systems and vehicles. An excellent, well run business, this is an opportunity not to be missed. Retirement sale.
