    Default planning to open a new auto care centre in karachi

    It has been years i have been using cars. all i have seen over the years is when a car breaks down be it new/or old corolla altis or some old nissan sunny the best place to repair them has been our local michanics.

    never have i seen an organized firm taking care of auto repairs as auto repairs is a big business specialy in major cities like karachi, lahore, islamabad, peshawar, quetta.

    specialy karachi wheare the number of cars on the street is possibly greater then the population of people in islamabad if not lahore. well i am not flanking out but it is true,to a certain extent.


    well what i see i s a big oppertunity here

    as me living in srilanka over the years.

    have seen some big names in the auto care industry

    like

    Auto miraj (possibly 100 + large scale outlets island wide) modus operandi= car detailing,engine care,ac,denting painting ETC.

    formula world -i have seen their one out let it is based out of the city and i guaintee it is almost based on a frame of more then 1.5 sq kms
    with almost 100s of cars parked if not 1000s u can see it from the road

    mag city- high end repair centre with abt 3 outlets

    and also they are many more

    well most of the cars that they have are from insurance companies as normal ppl dare to go there well i am an exception.

    but the works guarinteed i got my 2010 axio painted several times and no one can identify.


    well i always had this idea in mind. today i finaly planed to post this above was to just give u an idea of srilankan market.


    well this is pakistan and it is on a whole another leval so shall we have a simmilar chain going here in pakistan.


    i would love to start some thing as i have done a 2 year diploma in auto motive engeniering and lots of auto related studies after that.

    although now i am a business major but hey cmon this too is a business.

    well on the flip side what will it take to start an organised garage and not greese workers dipping their heads into the engine bay and saying oo sab aap ki to piston week ho gia hai ya aap ki gear ki gararian too gai hai

    no i am talking abt a systematic work shop


    a paint centre with closed rooms high quality painting and denting equipment,high end diagonastic gadgets for engiunes and electricals.

    cmon share your ideas will it be a high profit yeilding business.


    so how should i start of is any one willing to join

    Good idea. I would suggest instead, open a car evaluation business to evaluate and rate cars for sale. Based on that, if a car is given good rating, buyers should purchase that car with closed eyes given that you have already evaluated it and given good rating. You can come up with colors, or A+, A, A, B+, B, C, etc. This would give buyer confidence in your business, and sellers will get this done by you to ensure the customers about the genuineness of the car.

    I have been thinking about this myself but am busy in job and can't do it. So thought to share this million dollar idea with you . If it works out well, I will not charge my royalty.

    You own Exotics and you didn't know about proper workshops. Strange. When ever you visit Lahore, do pay a visit @ INH near Lahore Airport and look their setup and right next to it there is Porsche workshop. Do visit them. Best of luck for your work.
