With years of experience as a franchisee, Mike Baynes founded AutoCenter Sales, 25 years ago, and it is now one
of the premier automotive business brokerages in the United States. With his experience, Mike recognized the
difficulties often faced by business owners in succession and transition planning and decided to make educating
business owners a focal point of his company.
Following the rapid success of the company, Mike was able to turn AutoCenter Sales into a family-run company,
bringing on his nephew, Joe, and, later on, his son, Jason. Joe and Jason have become an integral part of the
ACS team and, with their experience and abilities, the team is able to bring our customers unprecedented
services unmatched by general business brokers in the industry.
By partnering with AutoCenter Sales, our customers will experience a fully-integrated analysis process and
overall understanding of their businesses. For our potential sellers, we can analyze their companies to find
areas where their numbers could potentially be off from the rest of the industry. From there, we have the
knowledge and resources to help get our customers in line with industry standards, which will translate into a
higher sale price. For buyers, that same analysis can translate into a lower purchase price and potential
opportunities for them to make more money than the current owner. But the difference doesn’t just stop
with buying and selling advice.
Our unmatched line of industry connections throughout the U.S. is what sets us apart from the rest. When you come
to us and we see that numbers or processes are off or incorrect, we can easily put you in touch with our network
of experts in the industry (i.e. vendors, insurance agents, lenders, etc.) to help solve whatever issues you may
have. So if you’re ready to take the next step in your life by buying or selling an automotive repair
business, contact us today.
