profitable! PRICE JUST REDUCED FROM $289000 BE YOUR OWN
BOSS. OWN MY AUTO REPAIR BUSINESS W/ EVERYTHING INCLUDED
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 72), 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

Detailed Information Inventory: Included in asking price
Real Estate:Included in asking price
Furniture, Fixtures, & Equipment (FF&E):Included in asking
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
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.
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
Reason for Selling:I am 72 and would like to retire to fish,
snowmobile, and restore my antique cars
