Auto Pride buying programs are what the independent Jobber needs to succeed! - Al Pankowski, PDQ Auto Supply
Buy Better with Competitive Pricing
With the increase in the cost of living, people think about their purchases more today than ever before. Providing competitive pricing allows a cost-conscious customer to be able to make their purchases without hurting their wallets. Customers like to feel confident knowing they are receiving a fair and accurate price. Our product team uses the collective group's volume and buying power to negotiate the supplier programs.
Direct Access to Exclusive Suppliers
Auto Pride members have access to all of the aftermarket's leading manufacturers and brands in order to meet or exceed customer demands. Members also have access to traditionally hard-to-source import suppliers and lines.
Discounts and Extended Payment Terms
Extended payment terms allow Auto Pride members to buy products and get them sold before the purchase invoice is due. These extended payment terms along with cash discounts lowers total cost, increases margins, and improves cash flow in day-to-day operations.
When customers are treated fairly, considered important, given assistance, and have purchase options in stock, they are more likely to be repeat customers. Having the right part in the right place at the right time means your customer does not leave disappointed.
Unique Customer Opportunities
Auto Pride members have access to 25+ national account customers, large retail chains, and eCommerce customers. These selling opportunities and more are available to qualifying Auto Pride members.
Maintain Your Independence
Auto Pride members can maintain their independence by establishing direct accounts/relationships with suppliers without the need to rely on a larger distributor in their market. With no membership compliance restrictions, you can choose any brand or product and operate your company the way you want.
Good customer service is important allowing you to focus on running your company rather than being bogged down with mundane or time-consuming issues. Having a single point of contact eliminates the confusion of determining who to call when problems arise and gives confidence that issues are understood and addressed.
Access to Multiple Suppliers From One Source
The Network Products Warehouse stocks brands from multiple suppliers that can be combined to meet freight requirements. This mix-and-match approach offers members the ability to buy product that would not normally be cost effective. In addition, there is only one accounts payable to manage.
Opportunity to Become a Shareholder
Qualifying Auto Pride members can become shareholders if they wish. Requirements include a minimum purchase volume amount, line compliance, and a vote of acceptance by the other shareholders. Having to leave and join multiple groups is a thing of the past with Auto Pride.
Monthly Rebate Checks
To help offset the cost of goods, Auto Pride processes rebates and issues checks every month to all members.
Auto Pride provides independent auto parts distributors with the best pricing available from reputable suppliers to stay competitive in the ever-changing automotive aftermarket.
Auto Pride strives to improve our portfolio with service offering enhancements, adding new programs, renegotiating existing agreements, and increasing buying power through gains in total purchase volume with membership expansion.
Auto Service Experts (ASE)
The Auto Service Experts program is designed to grow profits and retention rates. Year over year the Auto Service Experts locations show an increase of 2.5% higher than shops that are not affiliated with the program. The more components of the program relies on you to provide them, the harder it is to switch their business to a competitor. In a consolidating market, warehouse distributors need to differentiate themselves from other competitors in their market. This program does that for them.
