Get Found Online
We're driving consumers right into your shop! Did you know as an ASA member you get a free business listing on our shop locator? Found on the home page of ASA's Web site, the "Find the Nearest Shop Locator" is a free search service that provides drivers with a nationwide database of ASA member shops in their area. ASA members can now update their free listing to include shop hours, services, payment options and so much more for only $60 a year. In addition, if a member has an existing Web site, ASA will link to the site free of charge from the member's listing. For more information, log on to www.ASAshop.org or call ASA's Membership Department at (800) 272-7467, ext. 295.
