Area and space for service
Service Station can only be legitimately subject to fulfillment of a number of important rules, established by the legislation. That they need to take into account, picking location. it's desirable, to stations located in close proximity to the motorway, garages and petrol stations. That such an arrangement will allow to be in close proximity to the target audience.
Including the company can not be located closer to homes, than 50 m. Do not open the vicinity of protected areas, reservoirs, education and health institutions. This provision is required to check the regulatory authorities.
STO necessarily should have a properly functioning centralized sewerage. But before opening it is necessary to pass the coordination of the traffic police services, SES, fire service. Each of these state bodies gives official permission to open, confirming compliance with all safety standards.
The area of the company shall be not less 25 – 30 quarter. m. The required area is calculated so, that for every job had at least 5 quarter. meters, excluding equipment. But in the long run it is sure to consider the possibility of expanding to about 200 quarter. m.
A set of equipment to get started STO standard:
- – Infrakar;
- – stationary stand control of brake systems of cars, minigruzovyh minibuses and cars with load up 3 tonnes;
- – elektrovulkanizatsionny unit, intended for the repair of damaged cells and automobile tires;
- – rolling jack capacity in 2,5 t;
- – piston compressor;

- – Electromechanical mobile lift.
In fact, the purchase of the required set of equipment will be one of the most expensive items of business plan STO. So, if the total area of the premises would be about 300 quarter. m, must be equipped with both three points of service. At the same time it provides for a stand 3 a two-and 1 four-post. Each adjustment position is necessary to equip the stand "alignments". And for fast tire will need tire mounting and balancing machines.
On the square in 300 quarter. meters must be placed at least 5 verstakov, and a set of balancing and other specialized tool. the cost will be very high: only for equipment for car express service you need to spend 80 – 200 thousand right from the start, 8 – 12 thousands will cost jacks, set for balancing - over 15 thousand. Despite the high costs, necessary for the purchase of equipment, it is this component will be the best investment in the development of the company. Quality technical equipment will be the key to productivity growth, compliance with safety regulations and to obtain high profits.
Himself the founder of the business and employees of stations do not necessarily have specialized education. First of all, important to have specialized skills and necessary for the maintenance and repair of car knowledge. Since this area involves working with people, It is also important skills of polite communication with customers. The head of the station may not have the specialized skills - for it is important to have business acumen and knowledge in the field of business.
Key staff positions for the service station the following medium-sized:
- – avtoslesar ;
- – avtomehanyk;
- – -electrician diagnostician;
- – plumbing foreman;
- – paint shop foreman;
- – tinsmith;
- – Avtomalyar;
- – finisher and some other items - on request.
For the first time such a group would be enough. Accountant and administrator better to hire later, when the amount of profit and the number of customers reaches a high and stable level. Initially, these functions can perform the settlor.
Create stations requires passing a series of bureaucratic procedures, designed to convince regulatory authorities that, that the enterprise will not violate security norms.
That the future service station safely passed coordination in gossanepidemnadzora bodies, you need to prepare the package of documents specified in the legislation. It must first be fed into the transport and inspection includes:
- – application for registration stations;

Very important in this list of project documentation. Without her presence and coordination of Rospotrebnadzor service station opening impossible, so you need to pay attention to this point before the start of the enterprise.
With regard to the standard registration of the company as a taxpayer, in the case of the creation of stations suitable form of IP, that initially will reduce the package of constituent documents and reports. In this case, registration with the tax office standard: it requires the application of a special form, which is supported by a list established by a special law on the establishment of legal and natural persons.

Market analysis. Marketing and Advertising
the new service's success depends on the correct approach to the analysis of the market has provided competitive services.
We need a thorough analysis of competitors: what benefit, what losers, to know, on that first of all pay attention to the organization of their own business. Examine the list of services, compliance with the prices for services, customer base competition, to know, for someone in the future among potential customers more emphasis on your business.
The consumer market of the chosen direction depends on several factors, both internal, and external. Including the demand for services STO influences increase or decrease the number of car owners in the country. Economic crisis 2013 – 2014 s negative impact on the structure of the market repair and vehicle maintenance. During this period, many citizens due to the loss or reduction of income declined by own car, as a result of decreased target audience. Some car owners have gone underground stations, performing the same operation at lower prices. Many small stations closed under the influence of the crisis, to make room for the more powerful members.
Beginning with 2015 , the intensified market: the national economy began to gradually recover from the crisis, respectively sector maintenance car one of the first felt the expansion of the client audience. Since a serious decline in the economy in the coming years is not expected, industry forecast for 2019 year rather optimistic: Analysts noted an increase in the number of private cars, that promotes the growth of demand for their maintenance and repair.
Prospects for the stations of maintenance and repairs for the next few years promise to be optimistic also on the basis of statistics. According to official data, about half of Russia's fleet consists of vehicles older 10 years old. More 30% falls on cars aged 5 to 10 years old, to 20% – Newer machines. This information allows us to conclude the ever increasing need for repair work for such vehicles. An increasing number of car owners are interested in extending the service life of their vehicles, why do they select good service stations with qualified specialists.
But despite the growth of the industry, its structure and composition should be carefully studied., to determine, which of its participants will be the most promising. At the moment, the structure of the car maintenance market in Russia is as follows:
– about 60% – independent car services of small or medium format, as singles, and network;
– 25 % – Authorized, or dealerships;
– 15% – workshops of individual format.
Because to become an official dealer, a number of strict requirements must be met, established by international companies, These project provides for the organization of a medium-scale non-network independent car service.
After the current state of the service station market in the country is studied, it is necessary to make a forecast regarding its prospects. To date, the number of officially registered service stations slightly exceeds 33800 units. Taking into account the information, provided by analysts, it can be concluded that, that in the coming years, this number may grow by 2 thousands and even more. So, according to official data and depending on the state of the industry, the increase in consumption of services in this sector will grow by 6 – 60 per cent per annum. But when planning income, the least optimistic scenario is taken into account., which will help to foresee all possible crisis and force majeure phenomena.
Based on the results of analysts' data, the most successful for starting a business from scratch and attracting a client audience is the middle price segment. these companies, usually, offer comprehensive service, provision of services in all major areas. At the same time, for the success of the enterprise, high-quality advertising support and a flexible system of discounts should be developed.. In this way, the company will be as customer-oriented as possible.
Taking into account the main results of the study of the selected market sector, as well as studies of its dynamics in temporal and territorial sections, it is possible to identify such data of the potential of consumers of service station services in Russia:

- Outdoor. Most visible to most motorists. Features of the target audience are as follows:, what, while driving the owner or driver of the car, sees a large number of banners, banners and other advertising and information objects. There is also a large and noticeable sign along the highway or near the garage cooperative.;
- Mass media – city newspapers and specialized publications for motorists. Television and radio are still effective, although their target audience is primarily senior citizens;
- the Internet: many services, including the automotive sector, promote by creating your own website, dissemination of information in forums, in social networks and free bulletin boards.
- Distribution of printed materials on the streets, car shops and gas stations. Including business cards and flyers for discounts work well.
Loyalty to new and regular customers is one of the most important rules for attracting the target audience. You can offer bonuses when referring friends, Discounts, timed to coincide with holidays and other profitable offers.
Customers love attention: if the service station will inform them about the ongoing actions, send notifications about the need to undergo another diagnosis or show other signs of attention, this step will be very advantageous.
The financial part of the business plan is developed in two conditional stages - the calculation of the cost part and the profit forecast, which the company will receive during the main stages of its development.
Mandatory part of the spending plan – tax payments. The fiscal year begins in January of each year., and it is from this month that the tax period is counted.. The list of tax payments is as follows:
|Tax on profits||earned profit||1 month||20%|
|NDS||added value||1 month||18%|
|Property tax||value of property||According to the schedule||2,2%|
|Income tax||wages fund||1 month||13%|
|Social Security contributions||wages fund||1 month||30%|
Preliminarily, all the main costs of the project are calculated at the initial stage and during subsequent development.:

|Total||1 236 000||14 832 000||9 450 000||24 282 000|
The forecast of the income structure is made on the basis of several main indicators:
– analysis of demand for car maintenance and repair services;
– analysis of the services market, provided in this segment of activities;
– general conclusions about the state of the market.
Calculations will be carried out taking into account the lowest threshold of profitability. At the initial stages – in the first 24 months of the company's work, the service volume plan will be as follows:

|13 – 24 month operation||Realization of auto parts||According to the assortment list||By price list for spare parts||from 3 644 000|
At this stage, depending on seasonal and other factors, the increase in consumption volumes is from 6 to 60% in year. If this trend continues., annual growth of the company's sales volumes will reach 180 million. rubles.
