Bates Moving & Storage Consolidates Operations

Former Matech Building in Hebron, MD sold to Bates Moving & Storage

JANUARY 2019, SALISBURY, MD – SVN – Miller Commercial Real Estate Senior Advisor John McClellan, CCIM, SIOR has once again brokered the sale of 27120 Ocean Gateway in Hebron, MD. A building many recognize as the old Matech facility, McClellan sold the property back in 2016 to an individual anticipating approval from the State of Maryland for one of the fifteen licenses to grow medical cannabis. Ultimately, the buyer did not receive a license and the property was re-listed at a substantially lower price.

The 46,000 square foot facility was targeted by McClellan as a possible property for his client Bates Moving & Storage, the regional United Van Lines. Bates Moving & Storage will be consolidating their operations on Benny Street and in Fruitland to this new location, which is large enough to provide room for growth.

Bates Moving & Storage is a fantastic source for your relocation needs. Their services include professional packing, local moving, intrastate and interstate relocations, industrial and office moving, commercial distributions, worldwide shipment services and secure storage facilities.

To inquire about this transaction or get information about available properties on the Eastern Shore, contact John McClellan at or call 410-543-2440.
