This could also be the perfect opportunity for a husband and wife team to run the business together also. The computer system unlocks the gates to allow access from 5.30am to 7.30pm daily.

The income of the business is made up of a manager’s salary of $53,400 CPI adjusted per year, 10% income from management fees for all rentals per month. Extra income comes from selling insurance to cover the owner’s goods in the sheds. This generates over $2,000 a month of additional profit. Income also comes from selling packing boxes and accessories.
The term of the manager’s contract with the body corp has just been renewed for the next 10 years. General occupancy runs at around 85% every month, currently running at 78%.

Each tenant has their own access code to open the gate so the system knows who is coming and going at any one time.
General maintenance required at the property is to keep it clean and tidy, sweep out sheds before a new tenant takes over, lawns and general maintenance required around the property.
Even though there are several tradies hiring sheds on site, these sheds cannot be used as workshops only storage facilities.
In summary this is a well-established business for someone to take over, the current owners have run this business now for 10 years and the time has come for them to move on to another project. The current owners are happy to stay on for a week or two if required at settlement so the new owners have a smooth transition into the business.
