AIRPORT TRANSFER AND PUBLIC TRANSPORT COMPANY in Hull for Sale.
We feel privileged and delighted to bring this outstanding travel and transport service business opportunity to the open market, following the owners decision to take a well-earned retirement.
THE BUSINESS: Serving the general traveller with airport and cruise transfers, as well as valuable, long-standing contracts to provide minibus transport services to schools, the MoD and even trailer support to groups and teams of cyclists. Private hire transport to and from sporting events, weddings and even the odd stag and hen night. Even a simple local taxi service is offered, as conventional private hire taxi’s are rarely available in the local area. There is a real shortage of available 16 seater minibus services in the East Riding of Yorkshire and Hull areas, leaving a huge opportunity for younger, more ambitious owners to really take advantage of work that the current owner often has to turn down regrettably. The owner identified a huge demand for transportation of cycles from location to location. So far, the business has only just scratched the surface of this new and rapidly developing market. An excellent opportunity for new owners to aggressively target this market, which will undoubtedly prove to be a very profitable additional asset to the business. The Airlink Travel name is tremendously well-known and highly respected, although a modernistic approach to promoting it further, by way of social media especially, would prove to be hugely rewarding. Most attractive to any potential buyer is the diary of forward bookings, which, as an example, already accounts for an expected revenue of £80,000 to £100,000 in the period of just five months from August to December. An astute entrepreneur will easily recover all of his initial investment for the business over this incredibly short period of time. The owner, although wishing to retire, is willing to assist new owners for a transitional period, and even continue to work two or three days a week if required.
THE PROPERTY: The owner has built up his business over many years and operates it from his substantial residence and land in a pretty rural hamlet in East Yorkshire. The village is just four miles west of Hornsea and the east coast seaside, and eight miles from the historic minster town of Beverley, with its delightful market square and famous racecourse. Good schools, shopping amenities are just two miles away, as are a number of holiday caravan parks, hotels, food establishments, a good golf club and even fishing lakes and shooting grounds. The close region truly provides an idyllic environment to live in. Largest nearby cities include Hull (17 miles) and historic York (34 miles). The residence, land, outbuildings and garage workshop are also offered for sale should a potential buyer wish to acquire the entire property and business as one package. The property comprises of the main, extensively extended, semi-detached house, set in its own grounds of approximately 0.57 of an acre. Three large double bedrooms, two large reception rooms (each with its own conservatory built on), large kitchen and utility room, and a large family bathroom. In addition to the main house, there is a detached, brick built double garage, with a fully self-contained flat above it. The flat has one bedroom, a kitchen and lounge area, and a shower room and toilet. Several Velux windows allow lots of natural light. The ground floor of the garage has actually been appointed to provide an entertainment area, with a games room in one side, and a gym in the other. An additional single storey, flat roof extension has been built, adding a hot-tub facility to the property. This is a perfect arrangement for a potential AirBnB holiday cottage offering, with the prospect of achieving a sizeable annual rental income. Further outbuildings and a large summer house are surrounded by landscaped and beautifully maintaine
