7 Small Business Opportunities In Transport & Car-Related Industry in Kenya

The car and transport industry in Kenya has been growing exponentially since independence. Right now, aside from investing in the conventional matatu business, you can take up small initiatives that require much less capital but are equally profitable. Here are 7 such business ideas. 
(1)Car Maintenance Courses

There are many people out there who don’t know how to take good care of their cars. They could need your expertise if you market yourself thoroughly.

Budget: Ksh100,000 – Ksh1,000,000

(2)Motor Vehicle Towing Services

Have you ever had your vehicle break-down in the middle of nowhere? Well, probably you thought of calling a motor vehicle towing service or mobile mechanic…right?

Budget: Ksh200,000 – Ksh2,000,000

(3)Sale of Used Vehicle Parts

Do you have a good source of used vehicle parts? All you need is to open a small shop and sell these to majority of people who want to save on buying replacement parts for their vehicles.

Budget: Ksh100,000 – Ksh1,000,000

(4)Bicycle Tours

People are always looking for creative ways to spend their weekends. You can offer them the idea of bicycle tours. All you need is 10 mountain bikes and a good route for them to tour for a small fee.

Budget: Ksh500,000 – Ksh5,000,000

(5)Courier Services

Do you have the means and ability to transport goods and gifts from one part of the world to another? Then you need to invest in this huge market gap and make some money.

Budget: Ksh1,000,000 – Ksh10,000,000

(6)Self Service Car Wash

The idea of self service car wash is yet to be fully exploited. If you have the means to start one such station in a busy urban center then you would make some good money.

Budget: Ksh2,000,000 – Ksh20,000,000

(7)Water Supply Services

If you live in a busy location that often runs out of clean water to drink you can start the business of selling water using a truck (or a cart). You can even invest in a borehole when you make more money to be assured of a consistent source of water for sale.

Budget: Ksh500,000 – Ksh50,000,000

If you've been thinking about investing in the transport sector, and you wanted ideas that are beyond the ordinary matatu business way of thinking, it is my hope that these 7 will help you get started soon. All the best.
