The availability of acquisition capital should be a major factor in your decision. Although there are exceptions, lenders take a much more favorable view of a business acquisition than they do an unproven, auto electrical systems service and repair business startup.
Although there are a lot of factors to consider, the decision to buy a business to get acquisition capital almost always pays off.
