I was wondering if anyone knows of a town in need of a good, honest auto repair shop? My husband and I have built our business from the ground up in Illinois but are in the earliest stages of thinking about moving it. We just need to find a great place to put it. We work on all makes and models and do all repairs/maintenance minus transmission rebuilding (no body work). -ASE Master Certifications- We're currently a Napa Auto Care Center but we may or may not continue that in our new place.

I would like to stay in a smaller area- 20,000 or under (our hometown is only 3300) but might make an exception for the right place. I would love to live in central or east Tennessee somewhere to be close to family.

Check out White House, Portland, or Nolensville... all three towns are growing at a healthy rate, and they do not have any new car dealers (Portland may have 1 or 2). But that is something you should look for... and not too far from the bigger towns/cities of the metro area. That way, you can also get business from surrounding towns. That could be a very good field to be in these days... and Middle TN would be a good area. Good luck.

Or Springfield/Robertson County.

Don't worry, if your honest and fair priced the word will get around and people will seek you out. You will probably have more business than you need.
