Customers are helped by Direct Automotive Distributing’s knowledgeable parts and sales professionals. The team members leverage their expertise in parts, stocklifts, promotions, and training.

Direct Automotive Distributing knows batteries. The ACDelco battery trucks of Direct Automotive Distributing are continually serving the area, providing over a thousand batteries each month. In addition to the battery trucks, Direct Automotive Distributing moves batteries out of the warehouse regularly for area installers, jobbers, fleets, and dealers.
