Are you already involved in the motor industry? Do you want to run your own MOT garage or B2B tool distribution network? An automotive franchise could be the ideal solution.
Running an automotive franchise can have serious benefits compared to operating a garage on your own; in addition to the improvements to customer’s perceptions now that you’re associated with an established brand, the supply chain that you have access to can often offer you cheaper prices and a deeper, richer pool of inventory. This is ideal if you’re selling niche tools, or if you need to be able to source rare parts in a pinch.
Regardless of whether you take on a motor franchise or set up in business completely independently, starting your own automotive business takes a lot of hard work. In addition to the financial commitments, you need to be able to commit a lot of personal time and attention to growing the business.
Talk to the automotive franchises listed above to find out more about becoming a franchisee.
As with any investment, you need to ensure that the franchise commitment you make suits your circumstances and that you are comfortable with the level of risk involved. Read more about what goes in a franchise contract.
