Independent tire dealers in the United States performed more than 1.2 million air conditioning  jobs representing close to $423 million in sales in 2009.

The 2009-2010 Modern Tire Dealer Automotive Service Survey breaks down air conditioning service work per store. Air conditioning service represents 2.5% of all automotive service dollars.

Fifty-two percent of the respondents performed this service, broken out per location as follows:

Average ticket price per job: $334.30

Average number of jobs per month: 7

Average yearly sales: $28,081

Average profit margin: 53%

The MTD Automotive Service Survey breaks down the various service segments so that you have a benchmark to which you can compare your own dealership's performance.

It covers everything from air conditioning service to shock and strut work. Previously, we addressed engine diagnostics, exhaust service, brake service and battery/electrical service.
