Graeme Downie, the existing Autosmart franchisee in East Edinburgh tells us, “I’ve been running my Autosmart franchise for 13 years and have loved being in the driving seat, controller of my own time and success. I’m 58 and having built up a solid profitable business, I am fortunate to be able to retire and spend more time with my family.

The exclusive territory stretches from East Edinburgh, along the coast and down to Berwick upon Tweed, also taking in Kelso, Lauder and Dalkeith. Its a great mix of urban and rural areas and has a wide range of customers spread across many different sectors, from automotive through to agricultural. I’ll stay in place until a new franchisee starts and look forward to introducing them to the fantastic customer base.”

The Autosmart franchisee sells to a diverse customer base. As well as supplying the car, bike, truck and bus sector, they will also supply customers like factories, farms, caravan sites, agricultural companies and even funeral parlours.
