Detailed Information

Riverside County, CA
The facility includes 4,000 square feet of shop space with 7 lifts and 9 bays. The shop is well equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment and inspection equipment, which is included in the sale.
There are several franchises in the same area as the shop, however the shop's nearly 40-year presence in the area has allowed it to amass a loyal customer base who consistently drive new business to the shop via referrals. The one threat area is universal with auto shops: reputation makes or breaks the business. The new owner will need to be very proactive in maintaining the standards set by the current owner as it relates to customer service and attention to detail. Being relaxed on these fronts would set up the business for poor online reviews and make continuing or surpassing the current owner's success a difficult task.
Support & Training:
The current owner is willing to stay on for between 3 and 6 months to help introduce the buyer to key clientele, the employees, and the main distributors.
Reason for Selling:
The current owner is retiring to spend time with family.
