Market & Competition
While there are a number of auto shops in the area, this one sets itself apart through integrity, quality, reliability and clear communication. Customers always know that they will receive fair pricing and that they get what they pay for. As a result, the shop has a well-to-do owner base and very strong reviews online.
Growth & Expansion
The shop primarily serves two of the largest producers of cars. With the right talent, they can expand to other producers as well. Given the shop's supplier relationships and existing clientele, this would be a relatively seamless expansion opportunity.
Outside of this, another option is to expand within the current service lines, through more hours open per week or investing in marketing promotions and deals. The main channels currently are referrals and online reviews, with little to no money spent on paid advertising.
The shop is located near a town centre with eateries, shopping and banking within walking distance, allowing customers to run errands while work is done.
The facility includes multiple bays, parking spaces, 24/7 monitoring, and a clean and pleasant customer waiting room with a restroom.
Support & Training
The owner is willing to stay on for between 1 and 3 months to help introduce the buyer to key clientele, the employees, and the main distributors.
Reason for Selling
The owner is looking to retire.
