An opportunity to acquire a successful, thriving, independent automotive company presents itself via commercial property specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt.

George Pinder began the business modestly 40 years ago with the help of his wife Caroline, after realising he had a flair for fault finding on vehicle electrical systems. Now, Tytherleigh Vehicle Electrics offers a range of specialist electrical diagnostic and vehicle repairs along with performance chipping and general servicing. This is a niche service with limited competition.

“We have always tried to offer a friendly and competitive service which has led us to a firm repeat customer base “ said George.

“This could not have been achieved without the efforts of the loyal and hardworking staff employed at Tytherleigh Vehicle Electrics.”

The business is housed in purpose-built premises at Leach Road, Chard Business Park, Chard. The business has specialised with Bosch diagnostic equipment for over 25 years and has dealer-level equipment for the Premium European Motor Manufacturers.

The profitable business has shown increases in sales revenue, gross and net profits. Professionally prepared accounts are available to genuinely interested parties.

The well-equipped premises include a variety of specialist diagnostic tools – the main workshop can accommodate up to five cars and there are three bays with vehicle lifts as well as one devoted to diagnostic work and another as a tyre bay.

Duncan Brown, Commercial Partner at Greenslade Taylor Hunt, said: “This is a genuine retirement sale suiting new owners looking to take over a long established business offering a rewarding lifestyle opportunity with potential for further expansion.

“New owners may want to explore additional revenue streams, such as MOTs, ADAS calibration or electric vehicle diagnosis and repair. There is also adequate space on the site to extend the building.”

The business enjoys a loyal customer base and attracts clients from Chard, Yeovil, Taunton and Honiton. It is well situated within three miles of the A303.

The freehold property, fixtures and fittings, equipment and business are on the market at a guide price of £695,000. The modern building extends to 5,524 sq ft with a gated yard and a reception car park.

In retirement George intends to spend more time with his family, but his work on cars will continue as he has a number of classics to restore.
