Former car showroom to become offices following acquisition

Independent insurance broker, McClarrons, has acquired the former BMW and Mini showroom on York Road, Malton, from Inchcape Estates Ltd. 

The showroom will be transformed into modern head offices for McClarrons, which specialises in several niche sectors and is expanding across the region, most recently with an office in Hull.

Having outgrown its existing premises at Market Place in Malton, the McClarrons team will relocate to the new 10,000 sq ft office premises at York Road following a complete refurbishment.

Approximately 13,000 sq ft of additional unit space and parking offers other businesses the opportunity to expand within the local area. 

Robert Hill of Andrew Jackson Solicitors’ real estate and development & strategic projects team advised McClarrons on the purchase of the site, supported by colleagues Nicole Waldron, Ailish Ward and Hayley Neal.

Planning consultant Janet O’Neill provided guidance through the planning application for change of use to office space. 

Sean McClarron, executive chairman of McClarrons, said: “During a period when acquisitions and mergers are at an all-time high in our industry, we are extremely passionate and committed to remain a family-owned company in the long-term; continuing to strive to deliver the highest standards of service to our clients. We have a succession plan to achieve this.

“The acquisition of our York Road site is extremely important. It needed to be dealt with swiftly, and thoroughly, and without the right team of professionals it would not have been possible. 

“Andrew Jackson Solicitors could not have done a better job for us.

“We are really looking forward to our relocation which will offer a superb working environment to retain and recruit our people, along with excellent meeting facilities for our clients and key partners, which will secure our long term growth objectives in a prominent position with easy access and parking facilities.” 

Robert Hill, partner at Andrew Jackson, added: “It has been a pleasure to assist Sean and his team on this significant transaction.

“McClarrons has rightly earned a reputation for providing clients with a first class service and for being a great company to do business with; its latest investment will surely see the company go from strength-to-strength.”
