Is there ever a convenient time to get flat tyre? Or has a chip in your windscreen suddenly appeared?
Have you ever wished that you could get that unsightly dent or scratch on your car removed?
For most people, the lack of convenience when it comes to automotive repairs often puts people out, or worse, puts them off having the work done completely. No one wants to have to schedule in time in their busy lives to take their car to the garage to get minor jobs completed.
With more than 34 million cars on UK roads, and over 263 million vehicles on US roads, it’s fair to say that the automotive industry is not short of potential business.
The vast majority of vehicles on the road will need regular maintenance and cleaning, which means there has been a growing demand for car hire services and auto repair and maintenance services companies.
Not only this, but with more and more cars on the road every year, over 25,000 road traffic collisions reported each day, and over two thirds of cars requiring some form of minor repair on their car at any one time, demand for small, mobile recovery and repair units to travel to the destination of its customers, is on the rise.
Automotive franchises vary significantly in this industry in terms of specialising on a certain aspect such as, tyres and wheels, air conditioning and paint and bodywork repairs, all the way to breakdown rescue, so ensuring you make the right choice based on your personal circumstances is crucial.
With many people looking to have the freedom of running their own business whilst not being bored by the repetitive nature of the day to day running of some industries, this opportunity really does give you a chance to strike that work life balance you hoped for whilst no two days ever being the same.
Industry specific experience is often not required for many franchisees as full training and support will be given. You must simply have the drive (no pun intended), desire and ambition to achieve success. You can run the vast majority of these franchises as management franchises as well, giving you the ability to concentrate on securing new contracts and developing the territory and brand which will help you to constantly increase business turnover.
A real ability to converse with people on all levels is key to the automotive franchise industry as this is a customer facing business. An ability to strike up great relationships with current and potential customers will go a long way in the success of your automotive franchise.
