How do you start a car repair business for $15? One Pakistani entrepreneur figured out how:
The business model of SK Motor Syndicate (SKMS) is simple. Be it car maintenance, repair work, inspection, trading, interior fabrication, exterior add-ons or CNG installation, SKMS claims to be a one-stop shop that acts as a value-adding intermediary between the customer and about 18 authorised service-providers in different parts of Karachi.
But why would someone involve an intermediary and not deal with the car mechanic himself?
“We provide pick-and-drop service along with a seven-day workmanship warranty. We charge customers strictly the going market rates, absorb all risks and get the repair work done from a select group of service-providers at discount rates,” Khan said while talking to The Express Tribune.
