Sometimes, when it comes to business expansion, it doesn’t necessarily mean always going bigger. Value Plus Auto Service Express (VPX) – The Casa Alternative – now offers a more affordable franchising program for enterprising Filipinos with the “VPX Starter Package.” Now, you can operate your auto repair shop with just a 200-sqm space, with lower startup capital and reduced franchising fee.
After launching several full-service auto repair shops, including one in Batangas City recently, VPX is changing gear and is ready to cater to the immediate needs of smaller communities.
“Our Starter Package offers a real benefit and solution for smaller, dynamic communities – like barangays, towns, and residential neighborhoods – by providing a smaller-scale auto shop that is equipped to handle essential car maintenance and repairs,” explains Mark Saberola, the General Manager of ValuePlus Auto Services Philippines Inc.
He points to the great potential and need for these types of auto shops as, due to the pandemic, many have resorted to using their own vehicles to avoid crowded public transport and reduce infection risk. Thus, preventive maintenance is prioritized to keep their vehicles running.
A VPX shop offers essential services such as preventive maintenance, lube services, suspension, and mechanical repairs, and even car detailing.
According to the GM, when it comes to preventive maintenance services, the average driver spends around P5,500 per visit for at least 2 visits per year. “And when you multiply this with the number of car owners who regularly drive to work, this spells great potential!” adds Saberola.
VPX Auto Shop, indeed, offers a unique solution, providing excellent customer service and experience that is at par with major dealerships.
Providing greater security and assurance to franchisees, the VPX Starter Package is founded on a sound business model that’s been proven to be pandemic-proof.
For P4.5M-P7M startup capital, entrepreneurs can have their own auto shop up and running in three to four months. “The beauty of this program is that you can start with a smaller space, smaller capital, and just 50% the franchise fee,” he adds. “Also, we help existing auto repair shop owners pivot their businesses and convert their shops into a VPX shop. So, they can benefit from a tried-and-tested system that accelerates their growth and professionalizes their operations.” Over the years, VPX has built a sterling reputation and has become the go-to, trusted auto shop for preventive maintenance (PMS), lube services, suspension and mechanical repairs, for after-warranty vehicles.
The VPX Starter Package is ideal for start-up entrepreneurs as it requires smaller initial investment and a smaller layout. Operators can immediately start the business, earn ROI in a shorter period of time, and have the flexibility to expand services and facilities as needed.
The start package is recommended for OFWs, returning expatriates, retirees, and multi-business owners who want to diversify their business portfolio. Even independent fuel players, in fact, have availed of the program to complement their stations.
VPX starter package includes the construction or renovation of the shop, two lifters, 3-5 trained manpower, tools and equipment and a cloud-based shop operating system among others.
When it comes to franchising, VPX assists owners every step of the way, from documentation to building and even training and management. “We provide you full confidence in the program as we have built the model to be truly successful.
