Start a Merlin 200,000 Mile Shops Franchise

Life is better without car payments

Since 1975, Merlin has never forgotten that to be competitive and successful, we have to be both better and different. Our goal is to build long-term customer relationships while providing car repair and maintenance solutions that allow our customers to focus on their everyday priorities rather than car maintenance and repair.

We focus on long-term customer relationships with “regular repeaters” and are successful because we really care about and offer the right combination of products and services. No other undercarriage service chain has something like THE DRIVE FOR 200,000. This is one of the reasons our customers keep coming back to us.

Our stores help motorists enjoy the life of their vehicle and not have to make another round of car payment until the time comes. Merlin stores provide all of the maintenance and repair services required to keep the average vehicle going. In addition, Merlin stores have the unique DRIVE FOR 200,000, an easy to follow and understand maintenance program that is much cheaper than any dealer program.
