An Exceptional Business Opportunity for an Automotive Technician


Doug & Tina Overbury wish to retire in the next 1-2 years and are looking for the right person(s) who can acquire this business and continue its success in the future

Aside from sufficient capital to buy and own the business there are several skills and abilities needed every day to operate Auto Electric:

Not in any particular order:
