Learn About 1-800-RADIATOR Franchises
You don't know anything about cars? That's OK! You won't be installing
radiators. You will be selling brand new radiators in boxes to repair shops and
do-it-yourselfers. You have the biggest selection of radiators in the country at
the most competitive prices.

What Is 1-800-RADIATOR?
We are the largest distributor of automotive radiators in the $1.5 billion
dollar radiator market. You don't need any auto experience. Only new parts are
sold with no repair or installation involved.
Are there any existing locations for sale with established cash flow?
For a larger investment, there are a limited number of corporate locations for
sale. These businesses are humming along, producing strong six-figure sales
volumes. Your entrepreneurial spirit will make them operate at their full
potential. Additionally, we currently have customers in areas across the country

your city the sales will increase because customers will receive radiators and
a/c parts the same day they are ordered.
