staring an auto body shop can cost a quite a few dollars. depnding on the area or municipality you are looking in, it can cost you anywhere from 30 to 100 thousand dollars just to get up and running. this is due the cost of permits, zoning, materials, supplies and tools, let alone a frame machine and spray booth. however, autobody work is one of the most lucrative areas of the automotive industry esoecially if you are good at managing your own place. insurance companies pay out very well if their customers give good feedback on a shop. there will also always be a need for a body man.
