Our Dealers say…..

“We have been part of the Autopro family for over 25 years. Over that time we have seen the Autopro group evolve and grow to become one of the Australian automotive industries largest and most respected Brands. Through our hard work and the benefits of strong brand recognition, centralised purchasing, reliable systems and marketing support we have managed to build a great business. We believe the Autopro offer is the best in the market with a great mix of autonomy and independence and access to big business support services and resources when we need it. We like it’s so much we recently invested in a second store. Owning an Autopro business is challenging and fun and it’s great to be part of a network of like-minded individuals who are all happy to share their knowledge and support with each other. Autopro allows us a great lifestyle, strong returns and the ability to build a valuable asset."
