The Business started in 2008 and I have developed it right up to today.
I incorporated another local auto locksmith business last year and since then I can show takings of around £1500 per week, for not a lot of hours, though I am now ready to slow down. The new owner should be able to take over and maintain the momentum off the business.?The profit on return is unusually high and I am happy to show genuine purchasers my past and current accounts.

To operate the business, you would ideally be able to work alone, have some ability with hand and power tools, a basic knowledge of vehicles and be able to solve problems.?The day to day work consists of unlocking vehicles with keys locked inside, making replacement and spare keys, programming keys and some lock, key and remote repairs.?I have invested in a variety of the most up to date equipment which covers most makes of vehicle including Mercedes, VAG and BMW as well as the more popular brands.

I use a hand held card payment machine, though customers often want to pay Cash.
For the right person, it could be possible to recover the cost of the business within 2 years based on my current takings, so long as you are willing to put the effort in and make the most of the business. ??If you want to run the business a s a family business, there is ample room for expansion, equally, if you want a low stress, one man business, either option can be achieved.

All in all, this for me has been a low stress business, where I work my own hours, take around £1500 PW for not a lot of hours. For you, customers come to you, as they NEED your service as a potential never ending need for auto locksmith services to unlock vehicles and make new keys.

As part of the training, you will learn how to update and maintain the many website associated with this business.

There is ample scope to increase takings as I work mostly part time hours.
