Starting an Auto Repair Business?

If you have always loved fiddling with car parts and functions, and you have at least basic training or experience as a mechanic, then starting your very own car repair business just might be the right track for you! Before you find the perfect place and start setting up shop though, there are a few things you should do to get in gear.


Think of which types of vehicles you’ll want to service and choose a space that can efficiently accommodate them. It should have adequate entrance space, and tall enough for you to hydraulically lift the vehicles without fear of hitting the ceiling. Your floor should also be sturdy enough to bear the weight of the cars.

Natural Light

Make sure that there is an adequate source of natural light coming in through your shop. This is great help for mechanics looking for signs of fluid leaks in cylinder blocks. A good natural lighting source could also help you save on energy use.


Next, think about your car supplies dealer. You will need a constant supply of chemical cleaners, anti-freeze coolant, battery acid, engine degreaser, motor oil and additives, and other essentials of your new business. Opt for one that’s close enough to where you want to set up shop so that emergency supplies can come in as quickly as possible.
