We Know What Works - We Have A Proven Garage Operating System!
So you’ve decided that 2022 is your year! The year that you’ll be increasing the profit in your garage and even reduce your stress levels.
But, you’ve been running this business for a while and you’re not sure what to do or where to start? Well, you’re in the right place!
We have decades of experience in our industry and a proven track record using our unique Garage Profit System to help garages just like yours get the results you deserve.
We Guarantee You’ll Get Results
Accelerator isn’t a “get rich quick scheme”, and it isn’t for every garage. But… for the right applicants We Get Results!
To ensure Accelerator is a good fit for your garage we invite you to attend our Garage Discovery Session. It’s a Free 90 minute 1-2-1 consultation (possibly several sessions) with the aim of taking a look at you, your garage and “where you’re at currently”.
By finding out more about your garage’s potential we’ll outline what could be possible based on our industry knowledge and ensure our projections meet with the results you desire.
We Work WITH You To Achieve Your Goals!
Experience has taught us that to get the very best results in as short a timeframe as possible you need more than just an understanding of what to do.
You need a coach to help you implement the right action at the right time.
You’ll need a coach that understands the industry, takes the time to understand your business, its potential and how to overcome your challenges to achieve your individual goals.
And that’s exactly what we do!
As an Accelerator client....
We’ll work with you over a 12 month period helping you to understand your business as you never have before.
No going round in circles.
Just our assistance helping you to take the right action, at the right time to get the results you want!
Listen To What Our Clients Have To Say
Auto iQ Garage Profit System - The Road To Your Success
High Level Analysis – If you’re not measuring it then you can’t improve it. Which is why we’ll analyse all of the crucial numbers in your business including your financials, marketing, sales, workshop and customer satisfaction metrics.
Set Attainable Targets – Our analysis tells us A LOT about your business and you. Now it’s time to set some targets. Together we’ll agree on short and medium term profit and owner goals ensuring we set attainable waypoints to reach these.
Work On Your Team – The right team, with good management, will reduce your stress and supercharge your profit. Together we’ll outline your ideal team structure, the skills required and the specific actions each team member should be taking to attain both their goals and your results.
Refine Your Sales Process – We’re yet to meet a garage owner that doesn’t increase their profit as they implement our proven responsible sales system. We’ll show you how to treat every client like your Grandmother and increase your profit at the same time.
Refine Your Workshop Process – Our analysis shows that most garages only sell 45- 55% of their available labour. We’ll look at your current processes and help you to make changes to increase this, attaining consistently higher monthly profit!
Redesign Your Services – We’ll analyse your current product and service offering whilst carrying out competitor analysis. With our assistance we’ll create/amend your offering to ensure you offer great value whilst maximising profitability.
Refine Your Pricing Structure – Is your labour rate too low, too high or just right? Do you charge correctly for ALL products and services? There’s no “one size fits all” answer! Together we’ll analyse your current pricing matrix and help you to understand where changes can be made to increase profitability
Supercharge Your Marketing – Do you have enough customers and are they the right ones to hit your targets? We’ll analyse your current client database and help extract the data to answer that VERY important question, ensuring you have the right strategy and actions in place to win new clients and help your current clients buy more from you.
Differentiate Your Garage – Is it easy for prospective clients to pick your garage instead of your competitors? In most instances the answer is “NO”. We’ll look at your business from a customers point of view (the only one that matters!) and help you make changes helping prospects choose you rather than your competition.
Release You From The Business – Creating a business that runs without you is often “high on the list” for Accelerators. Whether you want to retire and leave a manager in place or just not have to answer EVERY question from EVERY team member daily, then you’ll love this. The secret to this is building systems and training your team. We’ll help you build your systems. The result? Less stress and a business that profits even when you’re not in it.
You’re Never Alone on Accelerator
Being a garage owner can be a lonely place but as an Accelerator that’s not something you’ll experience.
Our coaching program has just the right amount of group and 1-2-1 support to ensure we’re here when you need us.
Collaborative Online Webinars
There’s a huge amount of value in our regular group sessions. You’ll join other Accelerators as part of a small development group every other week (60 to 90 minutes ish) to discuss your progress, your success and any humps in the road.
You’ll enjoy the camaraderie that working with other garage owners like you brings and help each other move forwards, discussing common challenges and the actions to overcome them.
The sessions are great for maintaining the momentum of your development as well as catching up with John to ensure your actions are leading to the right outcomes.
Face to Face Group Consultation
Our online group meetings are great but you can’t beat being at Auto iQ HQ (our training centre in Northampton) with other garage owners.
As an Accelerator you’ll attend group consultation days delving into all 10 development areas of our proven system. We’ll introduce you to our development and project management software outlining the specific scorecards to ensure you’re measuring the right numbers in the right way helping you to move steadily forward towards your goals.
Want to get the opinion of the group and see what’s working for others?
Our face to face sessions are a great way to delve into the detail of how other Accelerators are implementing the system and understand any nuances they’re using that could benefit you.
One to One Consultation
Our 1-2-1 sessions are the icing on the development cake. You’ll enjoy a monthly strategy zoom session (60 – 90 minutes ish) where we’ll look at your business scorecards, analysing your data and ensuring you’re on the path to the results you need.
The topics of our 1-2-1 sessions will be dependent on the individual challenges within your garage (and then specific scorecard metrics) and where you’re at on the path to success.
Needless to say we’ll have plenty of time to work through individual projects pertinent to the development of your business, working steadily towards the results you deserve. The sessions are great for maintaining the momentum of your development as well as catching up with John to ensure your actions are leading to the right outcomes.

Here’s what some of our current Accelerators think….
Simon Williamson – Bigger & Better Results
“Working with Auto iQ and joining the business accelerator program has been a career defining moment for me. I always had a dream of how I wanted my garage to look, how it worked, the people that it served and ultimately the profits that it produced. John and his team have turned those dreams into realistic, achievable goals and given me the skills and confidence as a garage owner to reach those goals.
Working with John has changed my life for the better forever. I knew there had to be a different way of doing things. A better way, to achieve bigger, better results ……….. John Batten will show you how.”
Gareth Stokes – Transformed My Business
“The Accelerator business development programme has transformed our business way beyond our expectations.
John goes above and beyond when it comes to his clients and I couldn’t recommend Auto IQ enough. A top class service that cannot be beaten.”
Martyn Langbridge – Ground Breaking
“Awesome! John’s Accelerator course just keeps giving, John’s willingness to give the tools to help develop my business just keeps coming.
Just spent another Saturday (13 hours!!!) with the group and fully recharged and empowered to continue developing.
Would very highly recommend Auto IQ for all training but for me his Business Development course is ground breaking.”
