Renting a polytunnel
was wondering if anybody rents a polytunnel from somewhere like a nursery etc
i may have the oppurtunity to rent an unused polytunnel on the site of a ceased trading nursery
it will have water facilitys etc but i have no clue what would i should be paying.
will be veiwing it soon and would like to have an idea ?
obviously size matters and apparently it is one of the larger ones you would see on a fully functional nursery
any ideas ??

Find out what they suggest - suck your breath in and offer half.
I suppose it depends on whether you have to spend alot of time in clearing before yuo start or whether you can get up and running pretty much immediately - and whether you want to sell or just for your own consumption.
Well done though.

Heh, I always go for the cheeky option. I'll give you an example:
Company comes in, offers product for 250k, I laugh and offer 20k - in their nervous laughter, whilst they're still off their feet I'll order slightly more (50 in this case). They then realise we're serious and if they don't accept it, face a 200mile trip home empty handed

Work out size of land used. Same size as allotment? So say land rent = £20 per annum
Work out cost of polytunnel. Say £1000 new.
Lifespan of polytunnel. Say 10 years........so cost in simple terms = £100 per annum
Can it be let every year? Doubtful.....
What profit would owner expect on his investment? Say 100% so maybe £240 per annum would be reasonable......
There are many intangibles here but you get the idea........
Loving my allotment!
