British drivers clearly take pride in their vehicles, as they spend a massive £21.1 billion each year on servicing and repairing them. That's according to a report from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. This makes British cars among the best maintained in the world.
It’s an industry that fuels success for over 42,500 vehicle service and repair ventures of all sizes and types through the UK. If you are considering carving a share of that huge and buoyant UK vehicle after sales market, what is the best way to ensure profitable growth?
Well the starting point is often launching your business as a franchise model from one of the companies which have already made huge inroads into the vehicle repair sector. This is a business type that lends itself brilliantly to franchising. Big brand names can offer the kudos of their reputation, plus their operating systems and equipment deals, to support ambitious entrepreneurs in their local communities. The choice of parent companies depends on your own area of expertise and interest, from paintwork and tyres, to full service garages or MOT centres.
The main car manufacturers support selected aftermarket businesses that repair and service their models, and offer training and preferential parts deals. There are also regional companies such as Platts Garages, which operate multi-franchise dealerships in the Stoke On Trent and Stafford area. Partnerships to focus on one particular part of care repair and maintenance are also up for grabs. Kwik Fit is a prolific franchiser in the UK, and etyres has developed an online tyre supply network. Revive is a mobile car care company, whereas ChipsAway focuses on car body repairs. These are just two of the franchisers looking for new business start-ups to support.
