Garage Management

An automobile repair shop is an establishment where automobiles are repaired by auto mechanics and technicians. Mostly people who graduate from mechanic college would join a auto workshop to gain experience, others with an entrepreneurial spirit would start their own garage. And these business-minded individuals are surely aware that starting a garage from scratch involves a lot more than just fixing cars. You must have knowledge of advertising, accounting, marketing – and be conscious of the start-up costs.

The following are the key elements to be kept in mind while starting a garage;

1. Obtaining the Property

First things first: find a location. Alongside highways and in the middle of the city are key locations for an auto body repair shop, because these are typically high traffic areas.

2. Specializations

While most garages offer general repairs and services, you can increase business by offering niche repairs which other auto body shops may not provide. Some examples of specialized repairs and services include repainting, detailing and collision repair.

3. Hire the Right Employees

Finding exceptional employees can be a difficult and time-consuming task. However, it’s important to remember that there are auto mechanic colleges across the country ready to provide garages with newly trained employees. By hiring apprentices, a new auto body shop can establish a long-term, fruitful working relationship with a skilled mechanic – carefully trained by its own experts.

4. Market Your Business

Good advertising will get customers to your shop, but fulfillment of promises made in your ads will keep those same customers coming back, year after year. Online advertisements can go a long way, especially if you have your own website on which to showcase promotions. As for your advertising content, a popular route is to offer customers guarantees, such as a guaranteed free repair if your brakes wear out within a certain time l

5. Getting the Right Software

Garage software is required because it can save time money and also increase the sales. Integrated Garage software for all the non-productive tasks you carry out currently on multiple systems can rapidly cut down on the time taken to run your garage everyday. Since most of the admin work can be automated, cost can be reduced. Since most of the admin work is automated, concentration can be done on sales.

 

MOIBOO SOFTWARE

As you scale your business, you will realize that your business needs more than just a plain billing or accounting software but less than a full fledged ERP.
