Why Use Us?

Confidentiality

We hold confidentiality with the highest regard.  You can trust that any conversation with us will remain private.

Experience

Cardinal Brokers is best positioned through our partners’ unique backgrounds, expertise, and industry contacts to represent your business and complete the sale at the price you want, timeframe you expect and the confidence you deserve.

Consolidation

There is massive consolidation throughout the tire & service industry, specifically at the retail store level.  Historically low interest rates, industry tailwinds, and an increase in the number of interested buyers has pushed EBITDA valuations to very attractive levels for small & mid-sized business owners.

Timing

The average age of an independent tire & service dealer is close to retirement age, many without a clearly defined exit strategy.  We help in providing options that work best for you.

Testimonial

Testimonials

Cami M.

“If you are like me, your business is your baby. You have put in countless hours of blood, sweat & tears. That means when it comes to selling it, you will get emotional. Your broker becomes more than your spokesperson for your business. They are your confidant, your adviser, and your best friend.”

Mark C.

“Cardinal Brokers was invaluable when selling my business. From getting the best value to guiding me through the process and keeping me ahead of the game. I could have not done it without their help.”

Jeff P.

“My advice to other owners: Owners don’t make good negotiators on their own business. Hire a broker, and enjoy the benefits of having a professional handle all the deatails of one of the BEST decisions of your life.”
