MB Spares is for sale..... 

After nearly 27 years in business John & Sandra Green are announcing that they wish to downsize their workload by selling off part of their business. 

MB Spares officially opened for business on the 2nd of January 1994, in reality it had been running since mid 1990 as a backyard business. Since opening in 1994 as a workshop that also sold parts, the business models has changed multiple times adapting with the times. These days we are primarily a spare parts business quite rightfully promoting that we are "Australia's leading Independent Mercedes-Benz spare parts supplier". We also have a successful workshop offering routine servicing and full restorations as well as selling used cars.

We wish to downsize our workload, but are not ready to retire quite yet. The spare parts business is located at 14 Lyell St and the workshop 16 Lyell St. We are inviting offers to purchase either business and/or any aspect of the various business's.  Sounds complex, but with the business spread across the two buildings it is possible to halve it up. And, whilst it would be difficult to move the workshop, the spare parts business could be run out of anywhere, as the website and 1300 phone number make it portable.

Both businesses have considerably more potential than what they are currently achieving. They have both grown to the point where we have realised neither business is being run as efficiently as they should. Both would benefit from a fresh injection of enthusiasm and individual management, not shared management.

In the last 27 years we have achieved a lot, from having the first Mercedes-Benz dedicated website in Australia to buying out the local Mercedes-Benz dealers workshop equipment when they went bankrupt in 2006. There are over 15000 unique customer addresses' in our database and well over 16000 unique part numbers on file. This position is the ideal base for someone to take either business onto its next great step.

Interested parties are invited to make contact via our website, using the "Make an enquiry" button below. Please ignore the model, year and VIN number fields. Prospectuses have been prepared for the spare parts business and the workshop. They include a basic outline of the respective business's strengths and some basic figures. Parties that are interested after reading the prospectus would be required to sign a non disclosure agreement before further negotiations.

In the meantime, it is business as usual. Same staff, same work hours, same service.  We are still busy as usual with customer quotation requests, orders and workshop jobs still taking up the time that we used to use to send out our monthly newsletters.

In the meantime, you can continue to follow us on Facebook to see what we have been up to.
