REF 6808 – Leasehold MOT Garage
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold MOT garage located in a busy area of Letchworth, Hertfordshire.
Icknield Garage (Letchworth) Ltd has been trading on Icknield Way since 1960 and is immediately next door to a petrol station and convenience store. Our client’s family have managed this business from its opening until now and they have secured an enviable reputation with large repeat customer base. Excellent reviews are noted on Google and Yell.
The business is positioned on a busy road with parking immediately outside. This is a popular area close to Letworth Garden City and the busy town centre. Neighbouring properties are mainly residential. The area is well linked by the A1(M) with good public transport links in place.
REASON FOR SALE
The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to our client’s retirement wishes the business offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.
Our clients offer a new lease on a competitive rate on a Full Repair & Insure lease (FRI lease). This is the most common form of commercial lease. The new lease will be fully negotiated with the business sale, it will run at a cost of £385 per week for up to ten years.
