Independent tire dealers in the United States performed more than 10.8 million brake jobs representing almost $2.4 billion in sales in 2009.

The 2009-2010 Modern Tire Dealer Automotive Service Survey breaks down brake system service per store. Brake work represents 14.1% of all automotive service dollars.

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

Average ticket price per job: $218.51

Average number of jobs per month: 38

Average yearly sales: $99,641

Average profit margin: 52%

Annual profit per location: $51,813

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 and exhaust service.
