An auto service chain is driving business forward in Warwick with the acquisition of a new autocentre in the town.

Commercial property agents Harris Lamb snapped up the former First Stop tyre fitting and auto servicing unit on Emscote Road on behalf of Mr Tyre Ltd, having been tasked with identifying a suitable site within the region.

Neil Harris, Director at Harris Lamb, said: “We have been working with the chain to identify a suitable location in the Warwick and Stratford area for some time, so when this opportunity came to the market, we acted very quickly on to secure it.

“The 6,000 sq ft site was already used for the tyre fitting and auto servicing, meaning that minimal fit-out is required, and having negotiated a ten-year lease on behalf of Mr Tyre, the business is now in occupation of the premises.

“Mr Tyre is a real Midlands success story, starting out as a single garage in Sutton Coldfield in 1971. Over the past few decades, it has developed to become a respected independent chain with 35 depots reaching as far north as Farnworth and to Worcester in the south, and we’re delighted to have helped it acquire its 36th branch,” he added.
