Auto Repair Shops

We love to help people buy and sell businesses. And each industry has its own unique factors that make it appealing both to business owners and to consumers. This month we’re focusing on auto repair shops. We’ve been very fortunate to broker several auto repair shops sales in the past 12 months and have learned a few things throughout the sales process.

Auto repair shops are a very attractive business for buyers who understand how to successfully operate them. One reason is because they are able to stay relatively stable, even in an unstable economy. Everyone who drives a car eventually needs an auto repair or maintenance shop. Whether for an oil change, rotating the tires, or an engine overhaul, most car owners bring their cars into the shop several times each year.

Another reason auto shops are a good investment for buyers is because of the highly specialized knowledge the buyers may already have. With many different types of cars and trucks on the road, auto repair shops often become highly targeted to their audience. Some shops offer only a few services, or offer services for only a few brands of vehicles. We love to help buyers find the right fit for their interests and specialization.

Here is a list of the auto repair shops we helped sell in the past year:

  • Madison Muffler in Madison, TN
  • Meineke Car Center on Nolensville Rd. in Nashville, TN
  • Carothers Auto Repair in Franklin, TN
  • Brentwood Express Lube in Cool Springs, TN
  • Pit Row Express Lube in Columbia, TN
  • Sparkle Clean Car Wash in Columbia, TN

Each of these businesses had its own unique market and factors that helped it stand out as an attractive buy for the new owners. While all of these auto shops are located in Middle Tennessee, we regularly work throughout Tennessee. We currently have the following auto repair listings:

  • Car care center for sale in Knoxville
  • Rural auto repair in Lebanon
