University lecturer chooses to invest in off-airport car parking as a safe and hassle-free alternative to pure buy-to-let

Investment in car parking spaces close to major UK airports is a wise option that shrewd commercial property investors should consider, at least according to one satisfied investor with Direct Airport Parking Investment.

When compared to traditional bricks and mortar property investments, off-airport car parking spaces offer a far safer option. There’s no costly upkeep of property to deal with and no management hassles with this fully hands-off opportunity.

Burket Ali, a university lecturer from Leicester, England, is delighted to have made this wise choice. As one of Direct Airport Parking Investment’s satisfied clients he is already reaping the considerable benefits of investing in such a strong growth area.

Mr Ali, now in the second year of investing with Direct Airport Parking Investment, is already a repeat client. A seasoned property investor for the last 10 years or so, he sees off-airport car parking as a “safe” and “hassle free” alternative. Mr Ali said:

“I’m looking for investments that are safe, that are secure, that are no hassle. Off-airport car parking is the perfect investment for me. By my experience, Direct Airport Parking Investment are excellent people to deal with, have fantastic customer service and always pay on time. I would recommend them to anyone.”

Investing in car parking at major growing airports across the UK (London Gatwick, Glasgow and soon-to-be released London Luton) through Direct Airport Parking Investment is the choice of many private investors who, just like Mr Ali, have been impressed by the high yield promises this investment can certainly deliver.

Investors in our established car parks at Glasgow and London Gatwick can receive guaranteed returns of up to 10% on investment in years one and two, predicted returns of 10% in years three and four and 12% in years five and six. Direct Airport Parking Investment’s existing year three investors have already been paid returns of up to 10.8%, exceeding the 10% returns that were predicted when they first invested. At this level, yields far exceed those offered by more traditional investments such as ISAs and bonds and certainly surpass UK bank interest rates which have fallen to an all-time low offering just 0.25%.

Individual car park spaces at these rapidly-expanding UK airports are sold below market value, giving investors significant capital growth on their asset from day one. Investors own their individual car parking space, and receive a title deed from the UK Land Registry to prove it. So as well as earning a regular annual income, the capital value of this investment will also appreciate significantly – by as much as 50% right from the outset.

Direct Airport Parking Investment, based in Cheshire, is the accredited and established Master Agent of Park First, the UK’s leading provider of secure off-airport car parking. Park First has licensed Direct Airport Parking Investment to sell car parking spaces on its award-winning sites to investors looking for a high return, fully-managed investment opportunity.

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

“Across the UK, major airports are experiencing unprecedented growth in passenger numbers. With this growth comes an increased demand for high quality, trusted and secure car parking close to those airports. We are proud to offer investment in car parking at three major UK airports on behalf of Park First and provide our investors with a sound, secure investment that delivers what it promises.”

Investors will shortly have the opportunity to secure car parking spaces adjacent to London Luton Airport as Direct Airport Parking Investment prepares to make its latest and significantly enhanced investment offering available to shrewd investors, like Mr Ali, for the very first time.
