- 1 Comment
The automobile industry — and all the various ancillary services provided to cater to it — is huge. There are auto traders, car rentals, car repair shops, mechanics, car washes, garages, auto painting, auto glass, body shops, vehicle diagnostics… The list goes on and on. All these enterprises, however big or small, need a web presence, and, luckily, there’s a pretty impressive range of themes and templates available — all specifically designed for automobile-related businesses.
Auto trading websites, for example, may want to list a catalog of vehicles and filterable listings, customized search fields, ‘browse by’ options and various fields to help potential customers find the right vehicle.
