Automotive Repair Market.
Iconic American Brand
Ask anyone about “transmission repair” and they are likely to respond, AAMCO “Double-A-BEEP-BEEP-M-C-O.”
In recent years, AAMCO has invested significantly in new technology and ongoing education to ensure that our franchise owners and their technicians have the skill set to meet the demands of modern vehicles with the expertise for which our brand is known. In 2014, we launched AAMCO University, a state-of-the-art training facility in Newnan, Georgia, which offers more than 300 hours of classes for franchisees and their technicians, as well a high-tech garage where technicians can learn how to repair electric and hybrid vehicles.
AAMCO Franchise Owners Enjoy High Margins and Little Competition
Take advantage of a world-wide brand built on decades of consumer trust and loyalty. The day you open your doors, the community already knows your reputation for reliable, expert automotive care. As the noted leader in transmission repair, you’re positioned to profit from the lucrative complex car care market.
The average cost of transmission repair can range from $2,800 to $3,800 for a rebuilt transmission and up to $8,000 for a transmission replacement. Replacing batteries on electric vehicles requires specialized training and expertise and can cost upwards of $5,499. Higher tickets mean that AAMCO Centers can thrive on a much lower volume.
