USMG d/b/a (No Cost Auto Glass Repair), LLC. is the leader in the Auto Dealership Service Centers rapidly growing auto glass repair (AGR) market. A switch from the On-call (we come to you) service providers and independent auto glass repair garages, to the Dealership’s preventive windshield replacement market is accelerating, and USMG project that about half the growth will go to the (do-it-for-me) Dealership Auto Glass Repair (AGR) category within their independently-owned auto service centers.
Over the next 10 years, Auto Dealership Service Centers will need to expand to service more than 120 million vehicles a year, compared to about 80 million a year serviced in 1995. The battle ground test for these customers will not result in who service more cars, but in fact, adding a new category to cars already serviced, enter—the eco-friendly Turn-key auto glass repair market.
So what’s the competition up to? According to U.S. census data from 2002, there are more than 8,200 standalone lube centers. The Automotive Oil Change Association (AOCA), which represents approximately 3,600 facilities across North America, estimates these lube centers are currently in nearly 10,000 locations. Although growth in the fast-lube industry certainly has not been halted, the industry appears to have reached maturity in terms of the services offered.
