Fortunately, we're all about answers.

Why Auto-Lab®, versus any another auto repair franchise?

Auto-Lab offers an immense amount of franchise support from our corporate office, as well as a highly respected brand image. We require less investment, a small franchise fee and more control of marketing and advertising associated with your target market. The Auto-Lab® Business Management System (ALBMS®) is a business management program unique to Auto-Lab® that will assist you in all areas of managing a successful Auto-Lab® Complete Car Care Center.

I already own an auto repair shop, but can I change it to an Auto-Lab® Complete Car Care Center?

Yes, you can convert your current auto repair shop to an Auto-Lab® Complete Car Care Center. In fact, we already have an Auto-Lab® conversion program in place. Contact our sales consultant for more information on our conversion program.

Do I have to be a service technician to own an Auto-Lab® franchise?

No. A common misconception of our industry is that you have to be a service technician to own an auto repair center. While you will need to employ ASE Certified Technicians to work in your Auto-Lab® Complete Car Care Center, any mechanical expertise that our franchises may have is often an added bonus. The most useful asset to an Auto-Lab® franchisee is proven success in the management of a business. In fact, several of our most successful franchisees are not auto repair technicians at all- they range from chemical engineers to business executives, but have all found success by leveraging the Auto-Lab® brand and proven business model.

Is financing available?

Third party financing is available and may be used for up to 80% of your start-up costs. Auto-Lab® Franchising is an SBA approved franchise, which helps you get approved for your loan faster.

Steve (President of Auto Lab) and the team at corporate are doing a great job of listening and supporting us as franchise owners! Andy Dobek,
