There is no shortage of competition in the used auto parts industry. That said, this firm has carved out a market niche with its singularly focused products pertaining to 4 complementary auto brands. As such it has established supply side and demand side relationships in place that should provide it a sustainable competitive advantage.
The business has tremendous growth potential as a new owner can retail the same parts direct to the consumer online, via advertising as a `pick a part' shop, or via any number of additional means at higher margins! Similarly, since this firm specializes in only 4 complementary brands of autos, the same business model may be applied to additional auto brands.
Seller may consider carrying a 24 mo note on inventory at 7.0%
