Business Summary

Little goldmine of a garage with a huge, loyal clientele base built through word of mouth over the past 38 years. Excellent reputation for quality of service and work while charging reasonable prices. The garage is especially known for European cars and BMW motorcycles but works on all makes of vehicles. The garage does full servicing including air conditioning, but has no alignment rack and does no automatic transmission rebuilding. Garage is located along a semi-main artery in a mostly residential neighbourhood. Property measures 50ft * 100ft; building is 40 ft * 50ft.

Market Outlook

Competition: Busy enough to not notice the competition. Sometimes too busy, then recommend other shops. Last shop to slow down around town, and first one to get busy again

Growth and Expansion: One way to make more money is to be picky on jobs (which is possible). Alternatively, to take more jobs, one could hire another employee (part-time mechanic, part-time front) and open the shop a sixth day in the week.

About the Sale

Support/Training: I will stay on for some time to make sure the transition runs as smoothly as possible. While cleaning up my unfinished business, I can train the buyer as needed
