Probably the coolest business in the world! We have for sale Das Camper Collective, a business that has been borne out of passion for old VW Camper Vans, unfortunately I don't have the time to really get the best out of it due to my main business in construction consultancy. The business sale comprises the following:
1968 VW Flat Bed truck. , converted into a Coffee Van, I purchased this in 2016 from a chap trading as Coffee two Pick Up, the websiteiswww.coffee2pickup.co.uk. The van comes with an electric coffee machine, which has been regularly serviced, rustic tables and chairs that are demountable and are stored under the van, a high powered generator, a frapaccino maker, two coffee grinders, a tea caddy, stock and lots of extras. This van is a real head turner, I was offered £40,000.00 last year for this van which I turned down. We've used this van for festivals and the kidney bean 'nod pod' trailer offers a very convenient place to sleep, this comes as part of the sale.
1997 Brazilan Danbury. , this van was imported from Brazil and is yet to be registered in the UK (I've never got round to it but I have got the paperwork to get it processed). It has been MOT'd and always passes. This van has been fully converted, the roof opens up and the side folds down to create a great space to work. The van has a TV with PC connection so videos/photos can be projected, which is great for parties. There is a sound system with large, powerful speakers that sit on the glass trays on the roof. There is a bottle fridge, speed rail, ice buckets etc. The graphics seen in the pictures are magnetic to allow any corporate branding to be applied, which is a great promotional opportunity for corporate organisations to hire the van and brand it up with their corporate images. This is a money making machine and is the jewel of the business, unfortunately it sits in our storage facility most of the year!
1970 VW Bay Window Camper Van. In Mint Green, this is a beautiful van which we've used for several weddings since we purchased it in 2018. The previous owner featured on Posh Pawn with the van but wasn't offered the same value as I orginally paid for it. The interior has been set out as a day van, with the curved seats it is perfect for those all important wedding photos. The van has a great stereo, alarm and immobiliser.
On top of all of this, we have a freezer, a tall fridge, signage, leaflets, cupboards and shelving, extension leads, transport boxes, ornamental flowers, bunting etc.
We have several repeat customers, most of which are in the Manchester area. To give you an idea of the potential, we work with a car show room who hire the coffee van for a morning every three months, we may serve 50 cups of coffee and we charge £550.00 for four hours service. It's easy enough on your own so no staff costs; if you had one of them a day it would be a very nice living. If only I had the time to seek out similar opportunities!
It is with a very heavy heart that I'm selling my business, maybe in another 10 years I could have given this the time it deserves. This is a stress free, dynamic, cool business that needs the right person to love it as much as I do and take it forward. All it needs is a pizza van and you'll corner the hospitality market. I was planning a pizza van for my next project but my wife successfully argued against another van!
