Car Servicing and MOT Business Finance

Capify offers a unique business loan for garages which is paid back in small and regular amounts rather than large monthly chunks. This means that business owners are able to keep their cash flowing smoothly.

As a business owner in the car servicing and MOT industry, it’s important to have the latest equipment and machinery to carry out standard and specialist work. These instruments don’t come cheap but Capify can provide you with the money to pay for updated models and replacements of faulty equipment. We can also provide you with finance so that you can hire new, talented staff members, pay for marketing and advertising, or anything else your business needs to grow.

FAQ's

Why do car servicing and MOT businesses need to borrow money?

There’s so many reasons a garage might come to Capify for a business loan. First and foremost, purchasing expensive equipment and machinery is often required to carry out particular jobs; such as MOT’s. This equipment can cost thousands of pounds, but in the long-term is well worth the investment. Many garages will struggle to pay such a large up-front cost outright, and that’s where Capify can help. 

Other reasons include: 

  • Hiring talented and well-trained staff
  • Marketing and advertising in the local area

Why should I choose Capify over another finance provider?

Our customers sit at the heart of everything we do and therefore it’s important that we make our products simple and accessible. We’re proud to have a team of dedicated professionals who can help guide car servicing and MOT business owners through the process and find the best solution for them. For this reason, we’ve built a strong community of customers who come back to us time and time again.

We place a lot of emphasis on human communication over tech. Whilst we think that tech is important and delivers a fast process from application to receiving your funds, you’ll also have a dedicated point of contact who will always be available at the end of the phone if you’ve got a question. 

We also have a team of real people who look over every single deal. Not every business is the same, so we believe that underwriting should be conducted on a case by case basis rather than using a ‘one rule fits all’ approach.

 

Top Tips for Car Servicing and MOT Businesses

Never stop learning 

As with any business, there’s always an opportunity to learn. Even if you have been in the industry for years and feel like you know all of the best practices, it’s still important to keep up with new updates, techniques and technology. Learning about the latest trends and developments will help your business to stay relevant. 

As an owner, your learning should also go further than the average garage worker. It’s always good to know how to market your business, keep track of accounts and ensure the company is in a prime position to thrive and grow. 

Embrace the power of social media 

As the owner of a small business, social media can provide you with huge opportunities. You can collect reviews, promote new deals and offers and most importantly, reach prospective customers. You should make sure that each day, or at least 3 times a week you’re actively posting.

 There’s lots of things you can do, whether that’s writing about a new employee you’ve just hired, sharing some local news, or sharing a picture of a car you’ve worked on. 

It’s a fantastic (and cheap) way to engage with customers and become a key business in the local community.
