    Hi all,

    name is Richard. I live in a country in Central Africa, the country does not possess a professional auto repair shop like the ones in développed countries,here it’s an open plot of land oil dripping everywhere, almost like junkyards, only dealership have shops with minimum like lifts. I am finance guy interested in opening an auto shop in my country, I’d love anyone help with the list of all possible equipment and tools for a complete auto repair shop that does all repairs needed on cars. I intend to hire mechanics and get them training wherever I can send them but as of now I do not possess one so I need help with that list so I can plan correctly for it.


    Kind regards

    Richard, we are currently working a “complete guide” for opening an automotive repair shop. 

    It will contain “everything” one needs to begin which will include lists of tools and equipment.

    Check back on this post/thread from time to time. We should have a first draft of the equipment list soon and we will post it here in reply to your inquiry.

    Thanks for bringing it up!

    Thanks a lot, I’m looking forward to reading it and I’m pretty sure it won’t only help me.

    I’ll leave a follow on this thread as well because I’m planning to set up my DIY mechanic shop in my garage soon. I’m looking forward to your article. 🙂 I hope it’ll look something like this article from Dig My Ride. You can also check this out first Richard if your concern seems urgent.
