Direct Automotive Distributing (DAD) is the Northwest’s auto parts distribution leader. We supply across the wholesale market to dealers, jobbers, fleets, and installers. With a combined warehouse size over 52,000 square feet, and a large fleet of trucks, Direct Automotive is able to service a large range of clients in the Northwest.

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. In conjunction with ACDelco training instructors, Direct Automotive Distributing has educational partnerships with Spokane Community College, Columbia Basin Community College, and Walla Walla Community College where over 500 installers are trained every year.

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. To set up an ACDelco Battery Consignment Rack, call 1-800-324-3284 and ask to be contacted by one of our battery marketers.
