  • Competition: The business operates on recommendations by customer word of mouth and referrals. Advantages to improve profitability are being lost as there has been no investment in a company website to promote the services on offer. Undertaking a local marketing campaign could also bring in additional business.
  • Expansion: Trading in total for over thirty years the business reputation has been built upon this standing through word of mouth recommendations. The company has grown steadily and the owners believe that with a positive market outlook there is an excellent opportunity to take the business forward over the coming years. Building on the existing services and customer base of this business could be achieved by extending the premises and introducing a further MOT ramp to offer class 7 MOT’s as a way forward. Also committing to a small advertising budget, plus investment in a company website, could achieve additional enquiries and ultimately additional profits.
