Blacks Brokers are delighted to bring to the market this long established used car dealership and service centre operating from an impressive location on a busy main road in Raunds. Raunds is a small market town in rural Northamptonshire on the A45 with good links to Northampton, Kettering, Corby and Wellingborough and the M1 and is currently experiencing outstanding expansion programme with approximately 900 homes being constructed.

Gells of Raunds has been trading at 35 High Street since the 1930s and as one would expect the business has earned an enviable reputation over its long and profitable trading history. The current owner(s) has been involved with the company since 1978 and since that time has built upon the solid trading foundations laid down and pushed the business forward. The current owner(s) has now decided to sell the business due to retirement.

The premises comprises of a lower forecourt with fuel pumps, kiosk & space for cars at the end of the forecourt there is a four storey house currently used as office and storage space including the main customer service/ reception.
From the building, there is a driveway which rises up to the middle forecourt which accommodates 36-40 cars a small cabin style office plus the workshops which include an MOT bay, valeting bay and body repairs workshop. At the end of the middle forecourt, there is another driveway which rises to the upper forecourt which can accommodates up to an additional 60 cars. The current levels of cars on display is approximately 88 however the owner has previously had over 100 cars on display.

The business would ideally suit an owner who could build on the exceptional reputation that Gells of Raunds has earned over the many years trading. It is rare that a business of this calibre becomes available on the open market and therefore early viewings are advised as a speedy completion is anticipated.
