Direct Airport Parking Investment Places High Importance on Meeting its Investors Face-toFace 

Potential investors in lucrative airport car parking schemes are benefitting from face-to-face meetings with experienced consultants from Direct Airport Parking Investment before they make their minds up about investing.  

The Cheshire based business, which acts as a master agent for Park First, the UK’s biggest provider of off-airport car parking, strongly believes in the human touch. Direct Airport Parking Investment ensure that their consultants meet all potential investors personally – wherever in the world they may be and maintain after sales contact.

Matt Carter, Client Liaison Manager at Direct Airport Parking Investment, said:

“Personal contact between our consultants and our investors is paramount to us. It doesn’t matter where investors are based – in the UK, Europe, the UAE and Asia – we feel it’s important for them to meet the consultants who will handle their investment in person and have the opportunity to ask questions about our airport car parking investment opportunities.

“It’s part of who we are. To our investors we’re certainly not a faceless organisation and they know exactly who they are doing business with. We make every effort to maintain that close relationship with all our investors throughout the lifetime of their investment, regardless of how large or small it may be.”

Direct Airport Parking Investment also offers its investors regular updates to review the performance of their investment portfolios.

As master agent for Park First they offer a unique opportunity to invest in UK commercial buy-to-let property without the associated risk of owning bricks and mortar. Investors can purchase individual car parking spaces on Park First’s award-winning off-airport car parks at London Gatwick and Glasgow international airports, with more London sites to be announced, benefitting both from on-going rental income and capital growth.

Park First owns and manages airport car parking worth in excess of £190 million sited around some of the UK’s busiest airports. It is the company behind trusted industry names such as Direct Parking, Help Me Park, Cophall Parking, Park Safe, Park Fast, Swift Park and Park n Fly. The company is currently expanding its portfolio to other major UK airports.

Park First airport car parking is set to become the highest yielding and is showing the fastest growth of any buy-to-let property, opening up this market sector to new investors. An assured 8% return is paid to investors in years one and two, rising to a predicted 10% in years three and four, and 12% in years five and six.

John Slater, Park First’s Managing Director, said:

“The UK is experiencing continued growth in air travel. Together with the expansion of major UK airports, this creates ever more pressure on airport parking and potentially offers higher returns arising from the fundamental economics of limited supply and excess demand.”

Investors in Park First’s off-airport car parking own their car parking space, with a title deed from the Land Registry. Each space is offered at 25% below market value, confirmed by independent valuation by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, to give an immediate rise of property value from day one. Investors have the option to sell on their parking space at any time.

As a tangible asset, parking spaces are a stable investment even in times of general market instability as they tend to change in value independent of financial markets.
