Haulier leases Avonmouth warehouse

Long-established Bristol haulier Richard Tovey Transport has leased a warehouse and offices on Severnside Trading Estate in Avonmouth.

The company has taken a 10 year lease at 202K Burcott Road, a 13,347 sq ft (1,239.98 sq m) refurbished end of terrace unit. Global real estate adviser Knight Frank represented the landlord, Epic Staunton LLP, and Clews & Co represented the tenant.

Richard Tovey Transport was formed in 2000 and provides a range of transport services including general haulage, HIAB cranes and Airfreight and Seafreight collections and deliveries.

Rhys Jones from Knight Frank’s Industrial & Logistics team in Bristol, said: “We are delighted to welcome Richard Tovey Transport to 202K Burcott Road. The warehouse unit – with offices on two floors – was constructed in the 1970s and has recently been comprehensively refurbished.

“It has a large self-contained concrete surfaced yard, and fronts on to Burcott Road on Severnside Trading Estate, just one mile from Junction 18a of the M5. The transaction highlights the strong demand for industrial accommodation with significant yard space, especially from those within the haulage industry.”
