An Exceptional Business Opportunity

1-800-Radiator & A/C_3

1-800-Radiator & A/C is one of the fastest growing franchises in North America. It's a simple concept: 1-800-Radiator & A/C delivers brand-new radiators, a/c condensers, compressors and other automotive parts within two to three hours to local customers (automotive repair shops, parts stores, etc) and next day to these same types of wholesale customers in rural areas. Customers love the service our local franchise owners provide. In addition to quick delivery, products come with a lifetime guarantee and are sold at very competitive prices. This extremely effective business model has enabled 1-800-Radiator & A/C to become the largest independent direct distributor of heating and cooling parts in North America.

1-800-Radiator & A/C_4The tight economy has created a huge opportunity for the repair and replacement industry as cars and trucks on the road grow older. In the United States, there were approximately six million radiator replacements last year. 1-800-Radiator is dominating this market. Our product line expansion, recent acquisitions and continued focus on systems and franchise support continue to make us the number one HVAC wholesale distributor in North America.

1-800-Radiator & A/C is also gearing up to capitalize on the slowdown of new car sales. There has never been a better time to be in the automotive parts and repair industry. A 1-800-Radiator & A/C franchise has approximately 1,000 automotive type businesses as its primary customers, including parts stores, gas stations, repair shops, body shops, new and used car dealers, junk yards and radiator repair shops.
