Mobile Franchise Business Model in an In-Demand Industry

Cars are not going anywhere.  Automotive dealership franchises are quite costly (but they can make money).  How do automotive dealerships make good money?  By offering their customer competitive rates.  There is not a whole lot of “wiggle room” on a new car: but used cars (and used car dealerships) can be highly profitable.  Why?  There’s a chance to expand the profit margin.  What do dealerships need in order to increase their profit margins?  A quality used car with little investment. Used car prices have been on the rise, a great deal due to the recession.  There has been a decrease in the number of new cars made (especially in 2009-2011).  According to the National Automotive Dealers Association (2012), the decline in luxury cars produced in this period has lead to a rise in their used value.  Luxury used car prices have increased by as much as 9% over the past year.  There is anticipation that the values for used car will decline, but NADA analyst reports pricing will: “remain at historically high levels through the end of the year”. How does Ultragloss fit into this picture?  Ultragloss is a mobile franchise that services automotive dealerships.  We offer them a low-cost service that improves the appearance of the vehicles on their lot which raises the value (and the price) of the vehicle.  It’s really quite simple and it doesn’t matter where used car values are.  Either way, we save our clients money by performing repairs that help them increase their profit margins. Even though automotive dealerships have service departments, these departments are costly overhead for the dealers and their workers are mostly mechanics or they have specialty performing large-scale jobs.  Ultragloss specializes in automotive appearance: those scratches, scrapes, scuffs, road rash, and key marks that typically hinder the sale of a vehicle (or lower its overall value). Bottom line: if you are looking for an affordable mobile franchise that’s virtually recession proof, Ultragloss is right for you. Ultragloss has completely analyze the business model to sculpt it into something even more efficient to meet increased demand for our services from used automotive dealerships.  We train our franchisees how to do every aspect of the business and we offer comprehensive one-on-one support.  Our look sets us apart from our competition.  And last, but not least: our customer service is impecable. Get started: land your automotive franchise today!...

Ultragloss offers an affordable automotive franchise with a unique niche in an in-demand industry for two vital reasons.  First, cars aren’t going anywhere and neither are the people who sell them.  People and dealers are always going to need cosmetic repairs.  Second, this is our specialty and since this is our niche this is all we do—cosmetic repairs on automobiles.  Some say what is “Automotive Appearance”?  Well it is one truck being able to consult a dealership on what steps are necessary to enhance the appearance of the vehicle.  Franchisees are trained to be able to assess and direct the dealership inventory to maximize its’ opportunity to the consumer.  We are Automobile Appearance Specialists and this automotive franchise could be exactly what you need. Ultragloss has found through market research and history that the most effective way to perform a trade and service in this industry if to be the master of that service and trade.  Not to offer and claim to be a master of a variety of services (ie. PDR, interior cleaning, interior repair..etc.) .  We believe in taking one service and perfecting it and this is the model we strive to duplicate with franchisees.  At Ultragloss, we all take pride in the relationships we build, the craftsmanship we offer and the level of customer service we give. Greg Todd (OH) repairing an emblem on a dealership lot during training Services the Ultragloss Automotive Franchise Offers Ultragloss has mastered the art of bumper repair, scratch removal, plastic parts finishing, road rash repair and several other auto appearance services that correct the cosmetic imperfections that typically hinder the sale of a vehicle. Ultragloss provides a much needed service to dealerships without the overhead required for this line of work.  We don’t handle the work of a typical body shop.  Body shops specialize in mechanical repairs, insurance and warranty work.  Dealers don’t pay Ultragloss an hourly rate, specialists are paid by job.  Ultragloss focuses on cosmetic repairs and not collision work. Ultragloss Automotive Appearance Specialists work closely with the car dealerships to ensure that they are selling their inventory looking its best.  They build a relationship with dealership management and effectively become part of the team.  With the skills that are learned through the Ultragloss training program, each specialist will learn what it takes to properly assess a dealerships inventory and work with the client to ensure satisfaction- with both bottom lines being met.  Our lot management techniques have proved to be very effective in moving used car inventory off a dealer’s lot in a timely manner. Customer service and quality work are two things that the Appearance Specialist takes pride in.  Ultragloss focuses on the entire vehicle appearance, where the competition focus is merely on repair site only.  This is what sets us apart…Competition Makes Us Look...
