Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market G S Motors, a very well-established repairs and body shop, located in Hailsham. The business was established by our client in the early 1980s, only now does the business come to market as our client is looking to retire. The business is situated on a busy industrial estate in Hailsham. Due to the variety of businesses the area receives a large amount of footfall and passing trade.

The garage currently offers all general vehicle repairs and body work and trades 5 days per week.
GS Motors has built up a fantastic reputation for good customer service, high standard of work and unrivalled reliability, which has resulted in an abundance of word of mouth recommendations and repeat custom.

Our client hasn’t explored online marketing or social media advertising at all, therefore there is ample scope to increase revenue.

Scope to increase

Extending the opening hours (including weekends)
Embarking on modern marketing schemes
Increase advertising.
Increase mechanics to the current team.
Reasons to buy

Excellent location
Well established
Repeat customers
Very rarely do garages of this size and standard within the area come onto the open market and we therefore recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.

GS Motors is located on Diplocks Way, in the affluent area of Hailsham, East Sussex.

The business is located on an industrial site which benefits from free customer parking.

Diplocks way is a very popular road into Hailsham Town Centre with many other complementary destination stores such as Wickes DIY, Argos, Screwfix, Travis Perkins and many more.

The business is run from a small industrial unit however could quite easily be relocated to any similar office space or private home within the Sussex area.

Our client informs us the core business operates within a 30-mile radius of the unit with some work taken from loyal customers who have relocated to Kent and Surrey.

Diplocks Way is just minutes from the A22 which links to Eastbourne in the South and Tunbridge Wells in the North.
