5 Reasons To Be Your Own Boss

Life can be hard for Sydney mechanics.

You work long hours, get paid less than any other comparable trade in Australia, and spend more time on the road than with your family.

Yes, life is tough at times for mechanics, but ultimately you offer the public an indispensable service – and chances are that you love what you do.

What if you could earn more, work less and stress less by running your own business? For those of you who are looking for a change, consider the benefits of having your own Sydney-based mechanic business:

1 – Make more money

As the owner of a mobile mechanic business, you get to keep more of your earnings. Instead of lining someone else’s pockets, your hard-earned cash can go toward helping your family and improving your life.

At Blue Toro, our business owners are equipped with tools to turnover a minimum of $240,000 in their first two years. Our franchise owners earn approximately $150,000 in gross salary a year – double the average pay for a non-self-employed mechanic. Blue Toro business owners work hard to earn that wage, but they aren’t required to put in extra hours to reach that point.

2 – Spend more time with family

You work hard to support your family, you deserve to get to share all the special occasions with them.  Missing birthdays, anniversaries and first days of school is not uncommon for mechanics working in shops and dealerships.  Mobile mechanics who own their own business get to set their own schedule and are not bound to any hourly requirements. You control your input, your output and everything in between. And where better than Sydney!

3 – Spend less time on the road

Owning a mobile mechanic business means you can spend less time on the road because you choose your jobs and where they are.

That means less time in Sydney traffic and more time at home with your family. Imagine at the end of a work day, getting to share a home-cooked meal at dinner time with your family instead of getting home late after the kids have already gone to bed. It doesn’t get much better than that!

4 – Spend less time working

Business owners have the luxury of being able to control their schedule. When you set your own hours, you get to enjoy some obvious perks, like more family time, more availability for travel and extra time to pursue your hobbies.

As a mobile mechanic with Blue Toro, your overhead costs are significantly lower than mechanics with brick-and-mortar shops, so you can cover your expenses with a typical workload. Choose to work a standard eight-hour day, opt for a shorter work day or take on extra work—the choice is yours when you are a business owner!

5 – Build your future with help from the pros

Whether you choose to strike out on your own or to join an established business, one thing is certain: you’ll need a support system to find lasting success. Blue Toro has a 100% proven success rate among its business owners.

Backed by an income guarantee, Blue Toro mobile business owners spend their first 90 days working with experts to craft a personalised business plan. From there, the company continues to provide support gained from years of experience as one of the leading automotive repair companies in Australia.
