Franchise Spotlight: Automotive

Find out more about the automotive industry.

This franchise sector primarily involves what automotive people describe as aftermarket care. And because vehicles are an indispensable part of personal and commercial mobility, this is a market in which customer expectations are invariably high. 

The great diversity of business franchise opportunities means there are also various different modes of working that you will be able to choose from.

Available franchise models 

Some businesses you will be able to operate as a home-based enterprise with little specialist equipment (e.g. wheel restoration). Others, such as windscreen repair services, you can deliver as a mobile, van-based facility which may lend itself to multi-vehicle operation.

In other cases, services like tyre fitting may demand that you have a premises and trained service teams to cope with the anticipated volume of business. You will also need to offer the drop-in convenience most customers will expect. 

With so many different kinds of franchise options, it is not easy to generalise about the typical work environment that you will have.

For example, windscreen repairs are an area where consumers expect a rapid response and may have a variety of needs. You will have regular B2C enquiries, perhaps from both local and national advertising, as well as B2B business from dealerships wishing to outsource work to a specialist. You may even be able to develop a relationship with insurance companies able to offer a steady volume of business. 

The auto market is very responsive to the emergence of new technologies. The 21st century promises to be a time of both evolution and revolution for the transport sector.

And, while older cars aren’t disappearing anytime soon, there are a lot of exciting opportunities for this sector. This could make a garage business an attractive franchise option for someone seeking an industry with good future prospects.
