Canadian Auto Dealer – The Bigger Picture

While we eagerly and expertly cover the retail side of the automotive business, we know that dealerships in Canada do not operate in a vacuum. Rather, regardless of the location, automobile dealerships are part of a larger automotive ecosystem. This ecosystem includes fleet. The largest car dealerships in Canada realize this, which is why they often have dedicated staff for their fleet customers. And while brands like Chevrolet, GMC, Buick, and Chrysler Dodge, to name but a few, have often been go-to brands for fleet customers, our coverage of the fleet world includes the entire OEM spectrum, and in all the provinces in Canada.
We also realize that Canadian auto dealers sell and service tires, which is why we discuss the tire market in-depth in order to keep car dealers on top of emerging tire trends. And while collision repair work is often farmed out to third parties, we know that a growing number of dealerships in Canada are bringing the work in-house. Here again, we bring the latest news to decision makers in all the provinces in Canada. Wherever you do your collision repair, we’ve got you covered with the latest news, insight into new processes and technologies, as well as safety and recall updates.
Finally, we cover the vast world of the aftermarket, because we know that even the largest car dealerships in Canada compete with the small garage down the street. Our in-depth news coverage, coupled with feature articles and insight from our columnists have one goal in common: to keep today’s dealers ahead of the learning curve, and on top of trends and emerging challenges. Whether you run a single store or are part of a dealership group currently operating multiple locations across Canada, you can count on us to bring you the latest news, along with industry-leading insight.
