Hydraulic Repair Industry
The machinery and heavy equipment repair industry is valued at $39B and has achieved steady growth for years, according to an IBISWorld report. Hydraulics is not a new technology, per se, but it does evolve as technology does. We make sure that our franchisees are kept up-to-date on all systems with our ongoing training and support. Getting into the hydraulics repair franchise industry sets you up with clients for many years to come, as most machines and vehicles rely on hydraulics to operate. PIRTEK uses mobile franchises to get parts and repairs to clients quickly and efficiently.
We Have the Answers
PIRTEK’s more than 40 years in the industry have given us the knowledge, expertise, and know-how for almost any situation. We’ve fine-tuned our business model and have our training methods down to a science. Over the years, we’ve come across a number of questions from hydraulic repair franchisees, and some of the most common ones we’ve listed below:
Why start a hydraulics repair franchise with PIRTEK?
PIRTEK is an industry giant. We have the experience, and we’ve become a go-to source for hydraulic equipment and repairs for both private and commercial customers.
What industries are PIRTEK’s customers in?
Our clients are in a wide variety of industries; pretty much anywhere you find hydraulics, we’ve been there, fixed that. Some examples include construction equipment, vehicles, food processing equipment, agricultural and farm equipment, car washes, manufacturing equipment, and waste management. It can be difficult for these industries to find replacements when their machines break down, and this can lead to extensive downtime, which can cost businesses a small fortune. We help get these clients the parts they need faster and provide repairs on the spot.
How is there room for PIRTEK franchisees in the industry?
Simple really! Unlike restaurant franchises, which can be too numerous to count, there is far less competition in our industry. Without one company taking ownership of the industry or territories, there is plenty of opportunity for all members of your team.
What are the requirements to start your own hydraulic repair franchise?
We do not require our franchisees to have prior industry experience. We suggest a net worth of $250K to $750K. Willingness to be hands-on with the business is a huge help too.
What are the available franchise tiers?
Tier 1 is a brick-and-mortar store with three mobile service units and a full staff of 5–7 employees.
Tier 2 is a mobile sales and service unit-only franchise with two mobile service units. PIRTEK’s goal is to have Tier 2 franchisees work their way up to a Tier 1 franchise.
How much does it cost to open a PIRTEK franchise?
For Tier 1, start-up costs range between $350K and $750K.
For Tier 2, start-up costs range between $160K and $460K.
These are just estimated figures and can vary depending on several factors.
What do I get in exchange for the franchise fee?
PIRTEK’s franchise fee gets you the most bang for your buck. Your franchise fee grants you onboarding and initial training, access to our computer system, marketing support, national accounts, use of our brand name, and our proprietary, time-tested business model.
