Auto Repair Center - Absentee Run For Sale - San Carlos, San Mateo County

Asking Price $29,900 -- reasonable offers welcomed.

Turn-key Operating Auto Repair Center.

This full-service auto repair business is a 30-year-old turn-key operation ready for an owner-operator to give it the attention it deserves. Currently operated by a semi-absentee owner, it generates average annual sales of $147,000 over the last five years.

Available for immediate sale.
The buyer must be prepared to close (complete the purchase with payment in full) within 2-3 weeks.

After SDE add-backs, the business profit is marginal. There is a large database of existing customers, and significant market presence and name recognition. Just the furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E) alone are estimated to be worth $50,000 or more.

The business operates in leased premises, at a monthly net cost of approximately $3,500.00. The landlord is prepared to offer a 4.5-year lease to a new owner at the same rate. There is shared restroom with the adjoining tenant.

The two employees are open to staying on at the buyer's option.

The Transaction The deal structure will be a sale of all assets (including all physical assets, trademarks, goodwill, name, customer records, etc.,) except accounts receivable, accounts payable, and cash on hand. Inventory will be included at actual cost. The asking price is $29,900 for a quick cash deal.

No representations are being made regarding net cash flow, 'SDE', or profit. Rather the business is being offered based on gross sales and existing infrastructure.

This is a platform for a successful business without 're-inventing the wheel.' The owner has been trying to 'absentee-manage' this business while placing his full-time attention on running his other highly-successful business (not auto repair). This auto repair business will thrive once there is a dedicated owner-manager in place.

During 'due diligence' (three business days maximum) you can see everything, ask every question, examine every record, and, before the end of due diligence, 'for any reason or no reason' you can cancel the contract and receive every penny of the deposit back from the escrow agent if this business isn't right for you. But, the prospect who makes the first offer will be the one who has the opportunity to go to the next step.

Look at all you will be buying:
#1. an existing customer base
#2. a fully-functioning, fully-equipped shop
#3. staff
#4. market presence
#5. cash flow
#6. an existing lease and location

You really have a decision between 'starting from scratch' and creating all those assets (1 through 6, above) or buying this foundation for a business that you can grow.

The Transaction: The deal structure will be a sale of all assets (including all physical assets, trademarks, goodwill, name, customer records, etc.), except accounts receivable, accounts payable, rent security deposit, and cash on hand. Inventory for resale will be included at actual cost. The asking price is $29,900.
