Specialist car warehouse to open at Severnlink Distribution Centre, Chepstow

Prestige and classic car sales specialist Ellani Cars is opening a new car warehouse in Chepstow.

The premises on the Severnlink Distribution Centre site, less than a minute from the M48 motorway junction, are currently being refurbished including a state of the art LED lighting system and custom-built appointment-only vehicle viewing room.

Company directors Elliot Rendell and Giorgio Fagnani plan to offer a no-pressure sales environment with appointment viewings available seven days each week. Giorgio Fagnani said: “The location is ideal for our business, with great access to motorway links in both South England and South Wales.  That means an enormous number of people can easily visit our showroom to see our vehicles.”

Ellani Cars will offer a service known in the trade as ‘sale or return’, which means they sell cars for clients on a commission sale basis, maximising cash return for clients and taking away the hassle of finding buyers for the vehicle. Ellani is also able to offer part exchanges, as well as a range of finance packages.

Ellani has signed a five year lease on Unit 8 Severnlink Distribution Centre, in Chepstow at an annual rent of £19328.  Landlord Custodian REIT Plc was advised in the transaction by commercial property consultants Knight Frank and GVA.

Grace Shackell, an associate in Knight Frank’s Cardiff office, said: “Severnlink Distribution Centre is proving extremely attractive to a wide range of businesses. The last remaining unit available offers 26,750 sq ft of space – but can be subdivided into two separate units of preferred.”
