AutoRepairTech Means Regional Relevance

AutoRepairTech serves the automotive community by making repair information systems easier to shop for online. But one of the challenges we face serving a big country like the United States is making sure that each of the regions across the nation is provided with the unique, relevant information that matters most in your state, county and city. This means building a digital shopping experience that reflects your regional needs and making sure everyone is properly served by their local information system distributors.

This is not a one-size-fits-all business. Each state in America has its own rules and regulations that impact automotive repair technicians. For example, states like California have strict emission control regulations, while states like Florida do not.

NOTE: You will not be able to see pricing on our websites if you do not allow the site to see your location.

To address these state-by-state differences, is built out on a region basis, with our ultimate goal being the creation of a unique store and a knowledgeable local distributor dedicated to providing you the most relevant information for your neck of the woods.

Next Level Geolocation System

You will now notice when you come to the site that your browser asks to allow location detection. We have added this feature so that we can identify your location and redirect you to your local store.

We Believe That Your Privacy Matters

Of course, at a time when bad actors are hard at work trying to hack our privacy and steal our identity information, it’s natural to be skeptical of this kind of feature. We take privacy very seriously and we definitely advise everyone to be vigilant in protecting their personal information. But rest assured knowing that your location information is not being stored on our system, and we will use your location only to redirect you to the correct digital store.

If you decide that you would prefer not to show your location, we completely understand and respect that decision. But unfortunately, due to our agreements with the regional distributors, you will not be able to see pricing on our websites if you do not allow the site to see your zip code.
