I totally agree with what Steve said. I would check into that first.
Then, come up with your plan to get your business in front of companies with many employees. (depending on where you are located). You can then set up an appointment with one of the "higher ups" to propose a plan that you have to save him valuable time from each of his employees. What you are offering him is having his employees vehicles taken care of while they are at work instead of taking time off to do these repairs, oil changes etc. This also helps the employees so they won't lose time or have to do them during their lunch hour.
But remember that you must first get your foot in the door. That means past a secretary! Offer them one, two or three free oil changes in exchange for getting an appointment or phone call through to the boss.
Of course these are just thoughts to help you get going with your venture.
All my best,
