Smog Test Only Shop - Absentee Run For Sale - Stanislaus County

This is a 7.5 year old very, very clean smog test only shop with one bay and a separate bay as a waiting room The owner is an investor and lives 450 miles away. Advertising has been the owner's weak point which unfortunately is the key to success in this industry. The books are verifiable via actual invoices and statements from vendors as well as third party government source. It has remote surveillance cameras. It uses software that allows you to generate all types of reports regarding the generation of revenue. You can monitor the performance of the technicians from the State's website. You don't need to have any licenses or any knowledge about cars. And it requires no more than 15 hours per month from the owner's time. Best of all the buyer can do a stock sale and not lose the Star rating.
