Upgraded Lincolnshire forecourt reopens for business

A garage and petrol station in Lincolnshire pulled out all the stops to celebrate its reopening after a refurbishment costing more than £250,000.

DC Baxter (Motors) in Ruskington closed its forecourt for seven weeks while new tanks and pumps were installed and it has switched over fuel suppliers with the aim of providing more economical petrol and diesel.

When undergoing a rebrand or upgrading parts of your business, it’s always a good idea to review your motor trade insurance to ensure that it now covers everything that has been included in the improvements.

DC Baxter displayed Gulf racing cars and MGs, brought along by the North Kesteven MG Club to mark the reopening. The day also featured discounted fuel prices and a tombola where fuel prizes could be won, plus children's facing painting, the Sleaford Standard reported.

The garage and fuel forecourt has been owned by the Baxter family since 1971. It is currently run by Paul, Peter and Chris Baxter, the third generation of the family to take the helm.

The family has upgraded the business over the years, extending the workshop, improving the fuel forecourt and adding a convenience store. The business employs 25 people, including seven members of the Baxter family.
