I'm only working 24 hrs./week and business is still profitable! PRICE JUST REDUCED FROM $289000

My family-owned and operated auto repair business is for sale after a fulfilling and successful 23 years of operation. Because of health reasons and my age (I'm 71), I am selling Mooers Forks Auto Repair and Diagnostic Center located in the foothills of the Adirondacks near beautiful lakes, mountains, and rivers for hunting, fishing, boating, hiking, ATV and snowmobiling (abandoned railroad bed is behind garage). Mooers Forks Auto Repair is a Napa Autocare center and AAA Approved Repair facility.

I AM SELLING THE ENTIRE BUSINESS WHICH INCLUDES:

3 bay, 2876 sq. ft building with AC, in floor heating, and waste oil hot air heating, full bath, kitchen, enclosed room for storage or bedroom, storage loft, and more. Very low overhead, utility bills average under $250 per month! Building is well insulated under slab, in walls, and above 14 foot ceiling. 160 sq. ft. of double pane windows allows lots of ambient light to reflect on the white metal interior. Additional lighting is from recently updated high efficiency florescent lights and 3 sodium lights.

1.1 acre at 2896 State Route 11, Mooers Forks, NY 12959 with 150 foot road frontage. About 2600 vehicles pass by daily.

All the tools, diagnostic equipment, machinery, large inventory of stocked parts and supplies, tow truck, road service truck, snowplow and Tracs computer program (to schedule, order parts, inventory, write repair orders, and document customer/vehicle history) necessary to diagnose and repair all makes and models. A detailed list of included items and a recent appraisal are available.

Customer base of about 1100, some have been with me for 23 years! With 1730 vehicles.

My help to ensure a smooth transition and my expertise (if wanted) in successful diagnosing. I would be working with you 3 days/week for 3 to 6 months.

I am asking $269000 for everything including the opportunity for you to be your own boss, own your own business and live in one of the most beautiful areas in the East.

Business is located 50 minutes from Montreal, Canada, and Burlington, VT. 70 minutes from Lake Placid, NY, 15 minutes from Lake Champlain.

Not included in the price is an additional 1.1 cleared and surveyed lot with 150 foot frontage zoned commercial which is next to my lot. If I was younger, I would put a much needed car wash and a Dunkin Donuts next door for added income.

I, Jeff Morelock, can be reached at 518-236-6909 or 518-236-7723 or [...]

Owner financing is available

Detailed Information Inventory: Included in asking price Real Estate: Included in asking price Furniture, Fixtures, & Equipment (FF&E):Included in asking price Facilities:3 bay, 2876 sq. ft building with AC, oil fired in floor heating, and waste oil hot air heating, full bath, kitchen, enclosed room for storage or bedroom, storage loft, and more. Very low overhead, utility bills average under $250 per month! Building is well insulated under slab, in walls and above 14 foot ceilings. 160 sq. ft. of double pane windows allow in lots of ambient light to reflect on the white metal interior. Additional lighting is from recently updated high efficiency florescent lights and 3 sodium lights. Competition: My business is located on a straight section of State Route 11 so it is highly visible. There is a lighted 4x8 ft. sign out by the road. Large frontage increases visibility and easy access to building. There is lots of parking area on level ground. Because we are very close to the Canadian border, many customers come from Montreal for repairs. There is a one man repair shop 1 mile away specializing in alignments. He and I swap jobs as he does not like to diagnose computer/electrical problems. I am willing to sign a no competition clause. Growth & Expansion: A second lift can be added easily as room was left to anchor the lift posts w/o hitting the in ground heating tubes. Because salt is used heavily in the winter on the roads, and the nearest car wash is located 30 miles away, a car wash next door would be a very good source of income. You could promote the car wash by discounting it if they were having repairs or service done! The back part of the building is 10' x 50', unheated and used for storage. This area could easily be heated and used as a drive thru for quick lube. Financing: Negotiable Support & Training: My help to ensure a smooth transition and my expertise (if wanted) in successful diagnosing. I would be working with you 3 days/week for 3 to 6 months or more if needed. Reason for Selling: I am 71and would like to retire to fish, snowmobile, and restore my antique cars.
