The automotive industry always remains a big hit. Having a two-wheeler or a four-wheeler is not a luxury anymore; it's a necessity now. Hence visiting a service garage for repair or car wash is the need of this era. So if you are also planning to run a car or scooter repair business, then it definitely not a bad idea. But which is a better option is what you need to decide, namely buying an already operating repair shop or starting a brand new center or choosing a car service center franchise like Maruti, Honda, Mahindra First Choice, 3M car care, etc.
Requirements The first question is how much investment you have in your hands? If we talk about a Maruti Suzuki dealership, then you must have approximately Rs. 50,000 in your hands. This figure varies from location to location. So, if you are planning to operate in a metro city then you may have to spend more bucks. Other than this, you are asked to submit a Demand Draft of Rs. 1,00,000 as investment/ security amount. Wait! This figure is of liquid cash only. Other than this, you should own land and get one on lease. The minimum area required for this purpose depends upon many factors. On average, you should have approximately 3500- 4500 sq. ft. of carpet area to run authorized garage from any company.
Similarly, Mahindra First Choice franchise requirements include a one- time investment of Rs 60 lakh to 1.15 crore and minimum carpet area of 7500 to 10000 sq. ft. for running a four wheeler service station.
