Automotive repair facility specializing in diesel pickups. Dealership quality work without the high price or hassle. Owners have built a strong customer base by offering superior service at a reasonable price.
Business is located a short drive out of town in a beautiful rural area. Located on 18 irrigated acres, sale includes five bedroom house, two well equipped shop buildings with tall doors, lifts, heat and all tools and accessories to run a top-notch auto repair shop. Horse barn, (that can double as auto storage if you are not into horses) plus two rentals. The business is set up to service working pickups, but has the tall doors needed to work on RV's and tractors.
Lots of potential for growth! The facilities are in place as well as lots of happy customers. Needs new owner that is willing to hire and train additional new technicians, advertise and possibly branch out into tires, RV and over the road tractor repair. This opportunity is perfect for an "A" technician that wants to live in a beautiful area, in the center of some of the best hunting and fishing in the country and do his or her own thing.
Main competition is the local dealership. However, like most dealers, it is difficult to keep good "A" technicians in the always grinding environment of a dealership service bay. There are a couple of other small independent shops in the area. One specializes in foreign cars and one specializes in more vintage (Pre-ECU) vehicles. This shop has all of the independent diagnostic gear and it up-to-date with the most current crop of domestic vehicles.
Owner is ready to retire.
Will train for 4 weeks @ no cost. Owner is a former Ford "A" technician that can fix just about anything. Customers bring their vehicles from miles around because they know that he and his wife will give them great service at an honest price. Their niche is more complicated repairs that would be unreasonably expensive at the dealership. Additionally, they specialize in upgrades including performance chips, exhausts and air-boxes. They have built two very nice shop buildings, so the overhead is low and the customers like the fact that they can talk to the person that is fixing their vehicle.
