PostSubject: Workshop needed for two classic car enthusiasts   Sun Jan 06, 2013 5:27 am

Hi fellow members, I'm looking for a small workshop/garage/barn or shared workshop for me and my mate so that we can get our classic cars under cover and be able to work on them regularly.
If you have or know of anybody who would be willing to rent us a place, could you please PM me.
Thanks for reading this and fingers crossed

Regards
Frank

Hi Vee, yes got the message thanks but the only thing that was available was single car council type lockups with no electric. I'm still looking so if you hear anything please let me know.
Thanks

Bill, I went out to Peter Thurston about the spare workshop space you said he had for rent and he said that he himself needs additional workshops for his Jaguar projects???

Vee, I'm so glad that the petrol tank saga has now been successfully sorted and your gorgeous Austin will be soon running about our roads once again. I'll pass the news news on to Dave ;-)

Frank

I must have misunderstood what Peter said then as he said to me I could have gone over there with him, obviously it was only for me, I will keep looking for you.

Bill, I have found certain suitable work spaces, but they are more suited to business's as the rent and service charges are just too dear for enthusiasts unfortunately.

Still looking fellow classic fanatics ;-)

Well, still haven't found anything yet fellow members and am now seriously thinking about selling my 3 classic cars as it breaks my heart to have to keep them outside and open to the elements. I have found a few workshops for rent, but all of them have been wanting business rates and so have been simply out of our price range as hobbyists. I'll continue to search for a few more weeks, but then I'll admit defeat if nothing materializes.

Thanks for reading this

A former neighbour rented part of an old farm building in Manston, which I believe was around the size you are looking for. I understand there were several similar units for let, but I don't know whether any are currently vacant. I don't have any contact details, but it is on the corner of Vincent Road and Flete Road. The yard used to belong to the house opposite, but I don't know whether it still does. I will try to get hold of him, but in the meantime it might be worth having a look and perhaps asking around.

Hi Frank, I am in a similar position to you and am looking for a workshop , however I am looking for a place to run my business. Any chance you could send me any premises that you find that are unsuitable for you.
Thanks, Ross

There is a chance I may have found somewhere for you from one of my customers, I am seeing probably tomorrow, it may need all 3 of you going into it as there is a locked yard and shall we say 2.5 workshops/ garages. as far as i know 1 unit will take at least 2 cars and the other at least another one plus a secure yard.

Also I am after somewhere for storage of cars only. Needs to fit around 8-10 cars if anyone hears of anywhere. Again not after anywhere commercial, as I don't want to have to pay business rates. If anyone hears of anything. Must be local. I would be really grateful for any information!

It's got to be covered and secure mate. If you hear of anything reasonable I would really appreciate it! Smile

Yeah I think I'm realising that mate! Still no harm asking about, weirder things have happened.
Yeah I wish!

I would think at least £10K per annum !!
I know of a place that has been empty for years but do not know who owns it.
