CAR REPAIR IN THE GARAGE. HOW TO MAKE MONEY
Most people sooner or later face thoughts about starting a business. However, one of the key problems is either the lack of money, the so-called “starting”, or can not find an investor. As a result, a person who decided to start something by writing a business plan, is at an impasse. There is an idea, but there is no money and opportunities for its implementation.
The solution to this issue is, you need to look for a niche in which either you do not need the initial capital at all, or it is needed, but small. For some, the solution will be, for example, the sale of handmade products through social networks, but “live” with such a business is unlikely to happen, because the final profits will barely cover utilities.
More realistically – it is to take a small niche “in the service sector”, one of such services is car repair. Cars were, are and will always break down and fight on the roads they will always, and what else you need for a successful vision of the business. One issue is solved – a constant influx of customers will be provided with “daily life”. Someone will decide that there are official services, but also do not forget that the prices in such car services are quite high, therefore, a small dumping price will solve this issue.
What about start-up capital? In order to start a business in the garage, you need not much:
1) Own or rented garage. For example, in Moscow rent a good, brick and quite spacious garage, where you can easily work with one car will cost up to 5000 rubles.
2) the Equipment needed to repair the car. Here you need to decide what to do, or locksmith repair, or body, or both.
2.1) Locksmith repair will require a lot of manual tools (carob keys, “heads”, jacks, various pullers, etc.). On average, the starter kit for the initial repair will cost up to 30 000 rubles.
2.2) Body repair. There’s a little more complicated, but arrived with a body repair is much higher than bench. For example, for replacement of spare parts on the broken “muzzle” and their painting can be freely demanded not less than 30 000 rubles (the cost of spare parts and consumables is paid by the client), because in the car service for such work will take at least 2 times more. For disassembly-Assembly of the car will require all the same tools as for plumbing repairs. In addition, you will need to buy quite expensive equipment: an electricity generator, an air compressor, welding (preferably) and a small power tool. As a result, the amount required for the garage equipment for your business will be about 70-80 thousand rubles.
Profits and payback periods? Let’s say you have invested 80 000 rubles in the garage equipment for your business. Started working. The first customers – most likely it will be your friends, and then, will begin “word of mouth”. Alone, for a month you can make at least two cars with average body damage, or up to 6-8 with small (painting 1-2 parts). A simple calculation shows that 2 cars at 20-30 Tr or 8 Tr 5-6 is more than 50 000 rubles of net profit. As a result, your garage business will pay off in 2-3 months and will begin to bring net profit. Yes, you will not be able to take on serious slipway work, for which in car services take from 100 000 rubles, but, as they say, “the hen pecks grain by grain, but it is full”. If it goes, you will expand, especially since there is much.
