Starting your own automotive repair shop or automotive workshop is the dream of good mechanics everywhere. I have lived that dream. If you are a highly skilled and versatile mechanic, you may find it to be very restricting working for someone else when you could be running your own business and making real money at the same time. The right equipment is essential to opening an auto shop. It takes a good knowledge of workshop equipment to make all the right decisions and you also need to learn using and maintaining different equipment correctly. A good automotive shop equipment company will ensure you have all owners and parts manuals as well as service directives for all the heavy equipment you purchase or lease. The company should also be capable of providing any training necessary to operate each machine safely.
