    Welcome to Business Advice Forum Harrizjo and thanks for posting your business question. You will get much more helpful answers from our members if you can give a bit more information and be more specific with your questions. Your question is extremely broad, is there anything in particular that you would like advice and suggestions on?

    Have you considered writing a business plan for the business?

    Do you have experience or knowledge in the auto parts business?

    Completely agree with Fergal,

    If you are planning to sell auto parts online, there is good opportunity in US but i am not sure about county you are targeting for.

    Kindly share some information as requested by Fegal, i can advice more on online selling !

    I don't know anything about auto parts, but hey keep up the good work!
    the thing is that you have to understand following things before starting any business.

    1. Market structure (Demographics, competitors, Business environment etc)

    2. Product trends in the region

    3. Supply and demand of the product

    4. Government rules and policies

    Hi, it's nice to meet you. For all those who are new to the business world, it may help if you start by buying an existing business, that's because in order to start a new business you need some relevant experience and lots of preparation.
    If you want, you can see auto parts business advertisements for sale on our website.
