Business valuation can be tricky. You want to make a good profit, but setting an asking price above market value can scare away buyers.
As experts in Auto Business Valuation, we take a close look at your assets (including “non-tangibles” like location and key employees), apply our extensive auto business market knowledge, and together we’ll establish a list price that attracts offers while still maximizing your profits.
Not yet ready to sell, but curious about what your business is worth in today’s market? Contact us to set up a free consultation. We’ll evaluate your business, let you know what it could bring, and even recommend ways to increase its value over the next few years.
Buy a Business
Auto Shop Brokers maintains the largest database of automotive businesses for sale in Minnesota, so if you are looking to buy, give us a call. Many listings are not published as some sellers require absolute confidentiality. Also, because of our extensive network of connections, we often know about businesses that will be up for sale soon but are not yet listed.
However, we don’t just show you a list of businesses and call it a day. Auto Shop Brokers is dedicated to our buyers and will guide you every step of the way— from first look to final contracts. We can also assist you in finding financing. Learn more
Sell Your Business
Running an auto shop business requires a special skill set, and therefore is not a realistic investment for your average buyer. So why have your auto business listed with a general commercial real estate agent alongside gift shops and restaurants and storage facilities? That approach won’t attract the buyers you need.
List with Auto Shop Brokers instead— we deal exclusively in automotive businesses. This means that not only will your listing be shown only to those who are truly interested in an auto business— they’ll also be able to understand and appreciate the value of what you’re offering. Learn more
Create an Exit Strategy
Eventually one of three things will happen to your business: it will be sold; it will be transferred to a relative, friend, partner, or employee; or it will simply shut down and everything you’ve worked so hard to create will be gone.
Sadly, the latter happens more often than you would think, and it’s usually due to poor planning. That’s why, even if you have no intention of selling anytime soon, you should have an exit strategy in place.
An exit strategy not only encourages you to plan ahead, but it outlines steps you can take NOW to increase the value of your business. That way, when you do sell or transfer ownership, you and your successor will both reap the benefits.
