Auto and Automotive Businesses for Sale

Get your motor running with BizQuest's auto businesses for sale listings

Over 52 percent of businesses in the United States are small businesses, and many of these are in the automotive industry. Entrepreneurs in search of an auto business for sale have a variety of options. They can try their hand at auto parts sales, a car wash business, car hauling businesses, auto repair, auto detailing, or car restoration. Buying an existing automotive business that's for sale often results in a quicker path to profits and may be less costly than starting your business from scratch.

There are more than 72 million passenger cars on the road, and they all require some level of service on a regular basis. The U.S. automotive manufacturing industry alone generates roughly $102 billion in revenue. Its steady annual growth rate of 12% is also good for subsidiary auto businesses. The car wash and auto detailing industry, for instance, brings in about $9 billion nationally on an annual basis. With more than 14,000 businesses in this sector, it's easy to find a car wash business for sale.

Regardless of which auto-related business you intend to buy, it'll be part of a financially secure industry. As long as you have the necessary skill set, all you need to worry about deciding which business to buy, and what tools and equipment need to be added, replaced, or upgraded. In many cases, like with an auto parts business, the business for sale will include inventory, any necessary equipment, and a thriving customer base. Check out the BizQuest site now to find automotive businesses for sale!
