Aftermarket Auto Parts – The Bigger Picture

As part of a much larger automotive footprint, aftermarket professionals know that their success depends on a variety of external factors, which is why we cover the entire automotive landscape. They know that today’s car sales figures, which normally take place in brick and mortar dealerships, determine which vehicles will end up in their aftermarket service bays in the years to come. That’s why we regularly deliver dealer news to our aftermarket readers. Since trucks and vans need replacement parts too, the fleet industry has a significant impact on the aftermarket. That’s why our readers trust us to educate them about fleet, whether they specialize in commercial vehicle maintenance or light truck repairs. Moreover, since many repair shops sell tires, we make sure they’re well informed about the latest products and technologies available. After all, the aftermarket auto parts industry covers a lot of territory, and while some information is available on aftermarket auto parts websites, we are the authority on the topic here in Canada, coast-to-coast. And while the friendly neighbourhood mechanic doesn’t usually do body work on vehicles that have been damaged in a traffic accident, it’s important for aftermarket professionals to know what’s going on in this part of the auto industry.To make sure they do, we provide complete coverage of the collision repair industry – a segment of the business with their own aftermarket auto parts challenges and concerns. And as auto body repair technology continues to evolve and advance, we are there to inform our audience about the changes, and about how to best take advantage of emerging trends. Finally, whether parts and emerging technologies are made in Canada, the United States, or abroad, we provide the insight and direction that helps today’s aftermarket professionals make sense of it all.
