More than just an internet site...

Sales and marketing of automotive aftermarket equipment has changed dramatically over the past ten years. The Internet has changed the marketing strategy of almost every manufacturer and distributor of automotive equipment in the world. Greg Smith Equipment Sales has enjoyed enormous growth in the past several years due in part to the exposure we receive on the Internet. We also advertise through a direct mail campaign and in many local and national trade publications. We exhibit in trade shows in the USA and in other countries.

Advertising allows us to reach thousands of potential customers-but our "filled to the brim" brick and mortar warehouses coupled with our knowledgeable sales and service staff is the main reason for our successes. We try to stock all the products we advertise on our website and attempt to “alert” customers if we are experiencing a low stock level on any item. We encourage all customers to “call ahead” to make sure we have an item “in stock”.

Virtually every successful manufacturer and distribution company in the USA has aligned themselves with Asian partners. We have been dealing with Asia on a direct basis for well over a decade and are been able to deliver high quality products at competitive prices because of our unique manufacturing relationships. We monitor the design, manufacturing, quality control, and packaging of all products that we import.

There are many "upstart automotive distribution” companies who believe that an easy dollar can be made by simply buying a container of Asian products and offering them on the Internet at a low price. Greg Smith Equipment Sales has been in business since 1982. We stock millions of dollars of products at all times. We have a complete service department with the necessary parts to keep our products performing for many years. Each of our warehouses has a large showroom where products can be seen and operated. We offer technical phone support for the products we sell.

Yes, automotive equipment retail prices have dropped drastically over the last ten years. It is our responsibility to make sure that even though these prices have fallen; our quality and service remains at the highest level. You want to pay the lowest price for the highest quality. We understand that concept. That is the same concept we employ when we buy from our Asian partners. Imagine that?
