    Garages

    Just to get a rough opinion..

    how many people use smaller garages. asapose to main dealers.

    ive just been made-redundant from a main dealer, (not vauxhall) so im looking into setting out my own buisness,

    location will be Long stratton hopefully.

    rent for the property is very reasonable

    is it a very risky thing.?

    sorry to hear that mate. at the moment how things are with the credit crunch i think you would be mad to even think about it but if you do go ahead best of luck

    sorry to hear about your bad luck, but with the doom and gloom re: the economy, to start your own business now would be close to financial suicide. however saying that it would be a good idea for the future or even as a starting point as a mobile mechanic (to get client base up)
    good luck though m8

    Have to agree you would be mad to set up at the moment. Can you go mobile for a few days a week and see how it goes?

    I probaly could but i was thinking getting an evening part time job till work was better, plus one of my old workshop mates where talking about paying me £200 a month justr to use the ramp in the evenings when he had the chance to use the ramps, which would at least half the rent a month.

    it is not good with the credit crunch etc, but the end of the day people do need there cars repairs, which means they will seek cheaper repairs , i presume
