I opened a car servicing and repair workshop nearly a year and a half ago. I started by working from my garage at home. By doing this I have been able to keep my overheads down and not applying for credit. I started my business with less than R1000.00 ($70) in my bank account. I currently work on my own doing all the repairs through to my accounting and bookings. I have since been able to build my business from there
I would like funding to be able to move out of my garage and into my own workshop where I can increase my customer base, employ people from the community and overall increase my turnover. I will be using the money that is raised to locate and pay rental for workshop space, buy equipment for example vehicle lifts, employ additional staff and marketing. I want to create a state of the art workshop where technology plays a big part. By having the technology, it will make customer bookings easy for the customer. It will create a smooth efficient and cost effective business. This is but a small glimpse into my idea and where I want to take my business.
If you need any further information please email me. I will be more than happy to answer your questions
