What do you mean by auto-clinic? Something like Jiffylube? I've done many car washes, detailing bays, and lubrication centers from NH to NC and as far west as MO. Also have done military truck maintenance buildings and a Tank wash building. Where would this be, in what kind of neighborhood, and how large? EDS

Yes, like Jiffylube or Auto-Sears. Civilian use only. I am doing research on the subject. I am trying to get full information on a standarized medium-size and large-size of auto-clinics: architectural, best-location metrics for auto clinics, interior design, and must-be-equipments, and where to get such equipments...........things like that!
Hope that helps?

Let me ask this: How much a single auto-center makes monthly, i.e. average revenue?

Doesn't that depend upon at least a hundred different factors...?
Are you buying a franchise (Firestone, Juffy Lube, Etc.), or trying to go it on you rown? How long will you be able to wait to build a client base? How saturated is your local market? Aren't the figures published in industry reports...?

Yes, it does depends on many factors. I want to go it on my own. I want to start an investment firm where I create my own investment products for my clients. My investment model is not risk-return one but income-return one! So, one investment single product is number of auto-clinics.

Watch out, We had an investor who started a similar idea, and went bankrupt after one building. EDS

I am talking here about auto-clinic not car wash! Also, this is for overseas project not in the US! One thing I am asking myself: what are the best income properties (not out of leasing but biz running) that bring best income?!

To be honest, that is not my end of it. I am the Architect, just signed off on a 16,000 s.f. Car wash with 152' tunnel, 6 detail bays and 3 lube bays, sales area, and offices. Building cost was $5.5 million. A real good car wash equipment manufacturer with lots of information is Sonny's Car Wash at sonnysdirect.com. They are in Florida. Many gas companies like Mobile have standard layouts for gas stations and repair bays. A fast lube area must have a full basement, with slots in the floor 3' X 16', car access from below on raised platforms, safety guards, major storage for the liquids (for above job 2,000 gals for used oil that is used to heat the lube and wash area), through access, etc. I am sure the Owner worked out his revenue stream. He does have a great location on the road from Providence to Boston. EDS

No, but the longest standard tunnel. Very little hand work required. EDS
