Body Shop Business Basics? Any Advice

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, wanted to know if I could get some feedback from those who are experienced.

 

I currently run a 5 lift/1 alignment German Car Specialty shop. We moved into our 5,000sqft location about 8-9 months ago from a small 2 bay shop. One of the nice perks of my currently location is the ability to legally run a body shop. If you are from NYC you can attest to the ridiculous rents and the abhorent zoning laws. It makes it a very very expensive investment to start up a stand alone body shop.

 

I still have sufficient room to install a paint booth and prep stations. I want to get my feet wet in the body shop business, I'd like to get some advice from some of you pros. Is there a resource where I can learn about how to effectively run a body shop? What management software do you guys use? Estimating software? Training courses?

 

 

Any advice would be appreciated.
