Simphi are delighted to welcome onto the market this well-established Filling station in a prime trading location in Preston.
The business has been trading for over 20 years and has been under our clients’ ownership since early 2015. It is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire to move onto other ventures.
This Filling Station occupies substantial premises in an ideal trading location on a busy main road.
The business is situated in the middle of the town centre and is also surrounded by densely populated residential areas, therefore benefitting from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade.
The business also benefits from ample on-street parking facilities to the front and back of the premises. There is also parking within the forecourt.
The Filling Station operates from a large and substantial property. There is a large forecourt with dual entrance and exit. Large enough to accommodate multiple HGV’s.
This business has a large illuminated signage on the forecourt to attract passing trade and to notify them of the current price of fuel.
There are also signs on the front door, front windows and above the doors to identify the store and which franchise it belongs to.
There is further opportunity to convert the space next door to accommodate a fast food joint or something similar.
There is also a MOT Test Garage/Workshop which uses the same forecourt as the Filling Station – increasing the number of potential customers.
The business briefly comprises of the following:
Ground Floor – shop floor, small storage to the rear, and a further small storage area towards the counter. There is also a WC.
Outside the forecourt occupies 6 brand new fuel pumps, ATM machine and an Air Machine.
Our client has installed 6 new CCTV cameras in the shop floor which is easily accessible via a mobile phone. The premises have shutters and a fully working Alarm system.
The original lease for the site was for 10 years, with a break clause after 5 years. There are still approximately 8 years left on the lease. A new lease can be negotiated with the landlord.
