Home Starting a Chip Tuning business

Thinking of starting a Chip Tuning business?

Anyone can start chip tuning, certainly if you have the right partners who can support you at every stage. It doesn’t really matter whether you have experience in the automotive industry or not.
It’s obviously an advantage if you do have experience. In that case, you’ll probably learn about chip tuning more quickly, and then you can simply add chip tuning to your services.

Starting with Chip Tuning:

What do you need to start a chip tuning business?

You don’t need a lot to start you off in chip tuning:

  • Laptop
  • Chip tuning tool(s)
  • A good File service
  • Customers

So you see, it’s not much, but because you can benefit from our expertise, you don’t really need much more. You might want to expand your range of tools at a later stage, but when at the start, you can do most of the work with just one tool. We advise chip tuners who are just starting out to use the Autotuner tool.


You need a laptop to run the various tuning programs, but there are very few other requirements. It can be useful to buy a separate laptop just to use for your chip tuning work. This will ensure that the laptop stays fast and manageable. Check the system requirements of the tuning tools you plan buy to before you purchase or start setting up a laptop for tuning.

Autotuner tool

We have chosen the Autotuner tool as the best tuning tool for a beginner. A huge number of cars and models can be reprogrammed using this tool. The device is user friendly, uncomplicated and fast. It’s a real all-in-one tool that can read and write via OBD, Bench and Boot. But is has another major advantage: all its updates are free, and you’re not tied to a subscription that has to be renewed every year to stay up to date. What’s more we are offering 10 free credits you can use straight away to buy ECU software from us. This means you recoup your investment almost immediately through us.

If you buy the Autotuner tool through us, we explain how the tool works and how to use it easily. And we don’t stop there: even after you have started using the tool, we are always available to help if you have any questions or need technical support.

A good File service

Many car and chip tuning companies don’t choose to write their own software. Hiring an engineer is expensive, and good, experienced engineers are also difficult to find. Because ECU software is becoming increasingly complex, it’s also quite difficult to train someone in-house. A lot of experience is needed, and this is one of the main reasons why companies outsource the development and writing of software. It makes things much easier for them. We have this experience. We have eight engineers ready to support our customers.


To start a successful chip tuning company, you obviously need customers. Fortunately, customers will appear pretty quickly. A tip for tuners just starting out is to help family and friends first, so that you can start slowly and get the hang of the process better. These satisfied early customers will often tell their friends and acquaintances, after which new customers will appear automatically on the basis of their recommendations.

We furthermore advise you to set aside some of the money you earn to spend on investing in marketing. This might include investing in an attractive website and regional advertising.

When is a good time to start chip tuning?
This is a question we are often asked, and we really only have one answer: just do it. We notice that many business owners are often looking for ways to increase their revenue, but at the same time are reluctant to step into the unknown. As a result, opportunities are often lost. Doing business always involves risks. But what if those risks could be removed completely? Would you then venture to start a tuning company?
