Neighborhood Auto Repair Pro
AASP-MN's Mechanical Marketing Campaign
The "Get to Know Your Neighborhood Auto Repair Pro™" campaign promotes the benefits of doing business with independently-owned repair shops. The campaign message focuses on the two primary benefits of the independent automotive repair shop, namely capabilities and relationships. AASP-MN wants people to know independent shops can perform just about any repair or service the dealer can, plus give them more options to save money. And local, independent shops are scaled to develop personal relationships and really know and serve their customers.
To find a Twin Cities repair shop in your neighborhood, visit www.autorepairpro.net.
If you’re an independently-owned repair shop and would like information about participating in this campaign, contact Judell Anderson at 612-623-1110.
