Heavy Duty Auto And Fleet Repair Shop For Sale

California - North, US
Asking Price:
$600,000 (USD)
Sales Revenue:
$1,382,489 (USD)
Cash Flow:
$121,880 (USD)

More than a decade ago, the current owners, opened a small shop in Central California after spending over a decade in technical and managerial roles in the automotive industry. They focused on providing quality service and establishing trust with their customers. In their early years, they focused entirely on their customers and built out a large customer base through word of mouth advertising.

In less than 3 years, they outgrew their shop and were looking to expand. After a few years of searching, they moved into their current location, a 9,000 square foot shop that includes a 3 desk office with an employee break area and restroom.

The new facilities opened up new opportunities for the shop, like heavy duty truck and fleet service. Many shops cannot accommodate delivery trucks or other larger vehicles because the shops are not large enough nor do they have the equipment or trained technicians to work on these types of vehicles.

After operating in their new location for a few months, the current owners landed their first fleet account. By providing excellent service and sticking to realistic timelines and budgets, Mike and Mary expanded from one delivery fleet service account to seven over the course of 5 years.

The shop has now grown into a well-oiled machine itself. It grossed an average of over $1.1M in annual revenue over the last four years, with a solid cash flow to the owners. It has a strong customer base and a personalized approach to customer service with a team of 9 employees in addition to the current owners. The shop was able to withstand the pandemic far better than its competitors, owing partially to a rise in e-commerce which drove up demand for delivery services and led to increased repairs on delivery fleets.

After an extensive run in the automotive repair industry, the current owners are looking to pass along their legacy. They’re in search of a motivated buyer to buy up the shop. It’s important to them that the buyer have strong ethics and is dedicated to providing quality service.

Their shop is the ideal turn-key business for someone looking to expand locations within the Northern California area or strike out on their own.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

There are a number of opportunities to grow the business. First, a buyer could invest in outside sales to drive more commercial fleet work to the business. Second, there are a number of marketing channels like paid search rather than the CRM marketing that is mainly being used. The shop is currently only open Monday-Saturday, the new owner could attract more business on Saturday afternoons or Sundays.

Competition / Market:

The one threat area is universal with auto shops: reputation makes or breaks the business. The new owner will need to be very proactive in maintaining the standards set by the current owners as it relates to customer service and attention to detail. Being relaxed on these fronts would set up the business for poor online reviews and make continuing the current owner's successes a difficult task.

Reasons for selling:

After a long career in the automotive industry spanning several decades, the current owners are ready to enjoy some much deserved retirement.

Employees:
9
Years established:
11

Other Information
