Demand for Auto Dealer Supplies Rises with Age of Cars on U.S. Roads

September 15, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
NORTH CANTON, OH Nationally, the average age of cars is increasing, and auto dealer supplies distributor AutoShop Express is positioned to help repair shops take advantage of the resulting boom in business.

"The average U.S. car was just over 10 years old last year," AutoShop Express President Paul Brown said. "In five years, that figure will be a full 11 years."

This trend definitely benefits auto repair shops, he said, because today's cars not only are older but also are too complex for most shade tree mechanics. Regionally, in Northeast Ohio where AutoShop Express is based, the trend also is leading to more new auto repair shops opening.

As business increases for existing shops and new repair centers open, the need for the right auto dealer supplies increases, too. And AutoShop Express is ready to meet the demand with a wide array of dealer products, including:

- oil change stickers
- disposable & paper floor mats
- disposable seat covers
- versa key tags
- mirror hang tags

AutoShop Express also is constantly on the look-out for additional products to help repair shops operate more effectively, such as clear plastic work order holders or customized oil change stickers.

"We're here for the long haul, to help auto dealers and other auto repair shops serve their customers in an efficient manner that benefits the car owner and the shop itself," Brown said.

North Canton-based AutoShop Express sells a wide range of auto dealer supplies. Visit them at
