Automotive retailer AutoNation announced the official launch of AutoNationParts.com, a new eCommerce website enabling customers to purchase high-quality automotive parts and accessories at competitive prices, shipped directly to their homes.
Providing fast nationwide shipping for guaranteed-to-fit genuine manufacturer parts from more than 25 brands, AutoNationParts.com aims to meet growing demand from DIY mechanics and “do-it-for-me” customers who can confidently purchase car parts online and have them expertly installed by their chosen mechanic, ensuring a seamless and convenient experience.
“Increasingly, consumers want the ability to go directly to a website and order exactly the car parts they need at a competitive price, with fast shipping times and transparent pricing,” said Mike Manley, AutoNation’s Chief Executive Officer. “People are holding on to cars longer. As the lifecycle of vehicle ownership grows, AutoNation wants to continue to be there for our Customers who take pride in doing their own maintenance, repairs, and customizations.”
According to market intelligence firm Mintel, consumers are increasingly shopping online for auto parts, and nearly half of consumers – particularly millennials and Gen Z – have done their own vehicle maintenance, repairs, or custom upgrades.
To meet this growing demand for online parts, AutoNationParts.com allows customers to instantly shop across multiple manufacturers to find replacement and maintenance parts that fit their vehicles. Customers also can choose from a wide variety of interior and exterior accessories to personalize and upgrade their vehicles.
The easy-to-use site allows customers to search for parts in several ways: by VIN to find exact match parts; by year, make, model, trim, and engine; by browsing through categories; or by using keywords and part numbers. In-stock orders typically ship within 1-2 business days, and customers will be able to track their orders to know exactly when their items will arrive.
With more than 300 locations in 20 states and more than 24,000 Associates, AutoNation has sold and serviced more than 14 million vehicles.
