On offer for the first time is a highly regarded caravan motorhome storage business located in Clifton on the Darling Downs in Queensland. Your purchase of this business and properties will also be buying yourself a tranquil lifestyle in a lovely small country town with great amenities and only 45km’s to the larger centres of either Toowoomba or Warwick.

The facility is believed to be the only purpose-built managed caravan and motorhome storage of its kind in Queensland and possibly Australia. The current owners commenced the business in 2008 and have gradually built the sheds and other amenities over time and built the business up to where they do not, apart from a website, advertise. Their most successful form of advertising has always been word of mouth. They have a loyal, long-established client base and are continually fielding new inquiries. Customers are from within a 50k radius but also Brisbane, Gold Coast, NSW, Tasmania and New Zealand.

Income/profit and customer base has not been affected at all by the recent pandemic.

The owners live on site as managers/operators in a purpose built caretakers residence – perfect for a couple and have built the business up to be non-labour intensive with minimal office hours. There are currently no other employees. The owners are ready to retire and travel.
