Truck Stop/Travel Center Site Evaluation

Before you spend money on a market analysis/feasibility study from any marketing company ask us to help you better understand who in the truck stop industry would recognize the information as being of value.

An expert in the fields of truck stop/travel centers and the fuel industry, Gary Hall understands the nuances of on-going-concern valuations for special-use properties. His special expertise, analysis, and consultation is sought by appraisers of truck stop and travel center businesses for banks, condemnations, and real property asset sales.

In addition to working with qualified appraisers, Gary utilizes current news, key industry research and data, legislative and regulatory issues, industry trends and forecasts – data that affects Truck Stop/Travel Center businesses and their valuation.

To help evaluate a truck stop property, Gary considers:

  • Site history as being a truck stop
  • Site visibility from the interstate
  • Site suitability for proper access and neighborhood compatibility
  • Site design, on site circulation, and non-conflicting ingress and egress
  • Feasibility for future modernization, expansion, improvement or adding amenities
  • Site potential to provide adequate parking, and visible offsite signage
  • Historic data on professional driver experiences including incidents, complaints, onsite accident reports and fuel spills
  • New competitors in the specific market area

With 50 years combined real world experience in all aspects of the truckstop/travel center industry, Truck stop Consultants has the knowledge and expertise to provide truck stop property appraisers inside industry information not available in publications or historic industry surveys.
