AUTO VALUE PARTS STORES
The Auto Value Parts Store network has more than 2,300 locations across Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Auto Value’s growth and leadership position in the auto parts market is based on the quality of its parts and service.
To serve the customers and professional service centers better, Auto Value Parts Store is committed to being the #1 supplier in the field of auto parts and accessories at competitive prices.
The current economic situation, combined with increasing customer demands, present a new challenge for many garages, wholesalers and warehouses. Consumers who want to keep their vehicles longer visit their local service centers for maintenance and auto repairs. The Auto Mecano marketing program was developed with this reality in mind.
The program is designed for independent installers and specialized service centers that want to increase their customer base, get better prices, and project a professional image. Service centers that join the program get entrepreneurial support in terms of management and marketing.
AUTO VALUE CERTIFIED SERVICE CENTERS
Auto Value Certified Service Center has over 2,900 repair centers across North America. Independent centers that have joined the program can count on a network of affiliated parts stores and wholesalers that offer a North American warranty on quality parts from more than 200 suppliers, including our Parts Master and Perfect Stop brands. Auto Value Certified Service Center has developed the expertise to assist independent repair centers and ensure their success in a rapidly evolving market.
