auto and car franchise

Industry overview: Auto and car care franchise businesses

The UK’s automotive industry is a key sector to the UK economy.

According to industry body SMNT, there were around 2,500 automotive component providers in the UK, and as much as 78,000 people employed in the automotive supply chain in 2014.

The thriving auto and car care franchise industry needs constant maintenance, and as a result, there are many companies that offer everything from car washing and valeting to repair and rentals. These organisations also have franchise opportunities available to give entrepreneurs a route into this sector. Here are just some of them:


1. RAC

The RAC is one of the most recognised names in the industry. If you’re looking for a franchise opportunity with the support of a respected and established brand, being an RAC Direct Sales franchisee could be the way forward.

Franchising in this industry gives individuals who have a passion for cars and making them stand out a chance to enter a strong market. With car sales in the EU growing, according to the BBC, it appears that these opportunities for car care entrepreneurs will continue to grow with more cars being placed on the roads.

Our current busy lifestyles could also be good news for car care franchisees. According to the Telegraph, over three-quarters of motorists would prefer someone else to clean their car for an acceptable fee. Many also feel that a car wash company would do a better job than they would, and that it is usually quite inexpensive.

With so many benefits going for the auto and car care industry, why not have a look at the other franchises available on Reed Commercial to see what other opportunities are out there.
