An excellent opportunity to acquire this substantial business property, situated roadside in a prime Lincolnshire location.

The site at Alford, Lincolnshire (LN13 9JN) has been trading for over 60 years as a Vauxhall Main Dealer – selling and repairing over 5000 cars a year – until Vauxhall consolidated its franchise structure moving dealerships into larger areas of population.

The site consists of the following:

  1. Large building suitable to be a showroom with built-in offices/reception area and stores

  2. A purpose-built 5 car body shop with an annexed paint oven and mixing room

  3. A two-bay workshop/MOT facility with a stock of Vauxhall tools

  4. A two-car valet bay with a separate heating system

  5. A concrete built wash bay with all the necessary draining and brick-built storage with electrics and water

  6. Outside toilet and sink

  7. Additional concrete covered storage space with double overhead doors

  8. Large forecourt area with main road frontage suitable for up to 15 cars

With most of the owner's family now having relocated to Australia, the owner has decided to retire leaving the site vacant.
