Decide the spot

If you have a garage that you can use, then you can simply prep up space and start your shop. Otherwise, you can easily put together a shed or a cabin in your backyard to serve the purpose. Depending on the space you have the number of cars you can take up simultaneously would differ. Choose a spot where the cars and your entire setup are protected from rain and heat.

Stock up on the tools

Make a list of all the tools and equipment you would need for the mechanic shop. Jack wise, air compressor, a full set of tools, and protective gear are good, to begin with. Also, find a reliable supplier of auto spares.

Work on the licensing

Even before buying the tools or making an investment do some research on the licensing part. This would help you understand better about the different permits or approvals required to set up the shop and the type of investment to make in order to get the approvals.

Work on the pricing of the services

Automobile service packages starting from $69.99 – there are plenty of such ads you might come across. It is all about the pricing. Make sure that you set a price that is not as high as the posh service showrooms. But at the same time, keep your profits in mind.
