Listing ID: 701
Established in 1974, this impressive family owned transport business is based 160kms south west of Brisbane. With turnover in excess of $3million per annum, the company now focuses in two areas:
- Brisbane - Warwick Daily Service, servicing the needs of the local business community.
- Interstate haulage (full semi loads) throughout the eastern states of Australia.
The Warwick Depot is situated on 3 lots comprising a total land area of 6,184sqm. The office space is 100sqm and is situated in what was formally a managers residence in the right hand corner of the property. The Depot has shed space of approx 500sqm. Both shed and yard area have a gravel surface and is fully fenced. An 11800 litre underground diesel tank with two bowsers is on site. Depot space is rented at Rocklea where freight is received and loaded on to company trailers.
The current fleet comprises 12 Prime Movers (Kenworth, Mack and Volvo) 2 Rigid Trucks, 15 Trailers (12 tautliners, 3 flat tops), 4 fork lifts (3 in Warwick, 1 in Rocklea). Staffing comprises 6 interstate drivers, 6 local and intrastate drivers, 1 depot manager, 1 office administrator. The owners are both active in the business but are ready to slow down, they believe the company has excellent growth potential under enthusiastic new ownership.
Maintenance is handled by an onsite subcontractor who has an excellent grasp of the requirements of servicing and maintaining a modern fleet of vehicles. This business is well respected in the local region and has built up a strong clientele over many years.
The interstate trucks are late model Kenworth and Mack and upon replacement are gradually passed down to the shorter haul intrastate operation. The local drivers are kept busy loading and delivering loads for the interstate operation as well as supporting the transport needs of the local business community.
The owners are keen to sell the business (property, plant and equipment) but would be prepared to lease the Depot if necessary. They would also be prepared to consider an investment property as a trade.
Price includes property, truck fleet, large quantity of stock, tyres, parts, ply, corflute, load restraints, office furniture and supplies.
