Top 50 Indie MPK Garages has bought Riverside Service Station in Belper, Derbyshire.

It was sold by specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, on behalf of its owner Nick Webster for an undisclosed sum.

The site is the second that MPK has secured through Christie & Co over the past year with the first being Walkers Garage in Carlton, Nottingham. MPK has several other deals in the pipeline with another site in the mature stages of transaction.

David Branch, business agent at Christie & Co, commented: "We received several offers on the site from both independent and corporate operators and exceeded the seller's expectations on sale price. This demonstrates the strength of the market for forecourts in the Midlands with existing companies looking to expand their operations and first-time purchasers looking to acquire their first business."

MPK is currently ranked tenth in the Top 50 Indies.
