Lease Expiration:
The business has a 6,600 plus square foot facility that is well maintained. The service area is 4,800 square feet with 5 service bays.
Investment Highlights: Low-Risk – Since 2013, the Company has grown despite being actively managed only approximately two days per week. With a new owner who is willing to manage and run this business, there is a great opportunity for growth. The strong guidance by an active owner who is willing to spend more time on-site, and in the community, could expand this business significantly through higher productivity. It should be noted that a new owner does not need to have prior experience in automotive repair. Skilled Employee Base – The Company employees three certified technicians, one technician in training and a store manager / service writer. It is not anticipated that the new owner would have to hire any additional staff. Existing Customer Database – The Company boasts a customer database over 4,100 individual customer names along with extensive customer service history. It also services numerous fleet accounts with attractive terms. Attractive Vendor Relationships – The Company is part of a growing network with access to preferred pricing/service from 25 automotive industry vendors including equipment providers, parts producers, advertising media and placement, technical data base, credit card processing, telephone systems, etc. This allows the owner to spend more time focused on the core of the business, rather than negotiating terms and prices with vendors. High Customer Satisfaction – The Company has maintained a 4.6/5.0 star review status with Google and maintains an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Sophisticated Internet Presence – Auto-Lab ® Howell boasts a modern, optimized website that offers coupons and allows customers to book appointments online: Network Expansion – Auto-Lab ® Corporate’s plans include growing from the current 26 locations to 60-70 locations across the country by 2021. This growth will enhance the prestige of the brand name as well as preferred supplier status for pricing agreements.
Growth & Expansion:
Develop Community Relations – An increase in ownership involvement will allow opportunities to “Own Your Neighborhood”. This involves becoming a great influence in the community where the business is located. This can be done through membership in the Chamber of Commerce and participation in community events. Marketing can include sponsorship of local sports teams or events, city newspaper advertisements, and beyond. The Company is a member of BNI, the world’s largest networking, referrals, and word of mouth marketing organization, and this has proven to be a very effective means of acquiring new business. Geo-Targeted Marketing – A new mobile application is expected to release before 2017. This app will allow store owners to geo- target specific areas for promotional offers. The implementation of this new technology will more effectively target customers and increase awareness marketing of special offers or deals. Please see: New U-Haul Leasing Center – The Company has recently been licensed as a U-Haul Rental Site. This was put in place to increase revenues and profit through rental commissions as well as to increase customer traffic and visibility of the shop for auto repair service. This opportunity is in its infancy and sales and profits are expected to grow with increased awareness.
Some seller financing available on request.
Support & Training:
The business comes with extensive support in transition, operations support and end customer support.
Reason for Selling:
Seller took control, turned around the business and is now looking for buyer.
