AutoHouse Technologies 2021 Canadian Benchmark Report: Sales and Gross Profit Trends

Vancouver, British Columbia ⁠— AutoHouse Technologies has released its 2021 Canadian Benchmark Report for the collision repair industry, detailing sales, gross profit trends, cycle times and touch times for the Canadian autobody sector last year.

Today, we take a closer look at some of the big takeaways from the report’s look at sales and gross profit in Canadian repair facilities.

For 2021, AutoHouse reports no change to overall gross profit percentages, noting the pandemic’s continued impact on industry net profits. 

AutoHouse did note that, compared to 2020, western Canada’s gross profit percentage trended downward in 2021. 

“The western provinces gave back the gains that they had made in 2020, in which they had moved closer to the eastern historical average,” reads the Benchmark Report. “Eastern Canada trended upward in 2021 gross profit percentage compared to 2020, and appears to have broken out of the historical normal range.” 

As for average sales mixes, AutoHouse reports that labour comprised 45 percent of collision repair centres’ sales mix in 2021—a decrease of 0.1 percent from 2020⁠—while parts made up 34 percent of sales, marking a 0.2 percent decrease from 2020. 

Materials comprised 11.7 percent of sales on average⁠—an increase of 0.4 percent over 2020⁠—while sublets claimed 7.4 percent with no change from the year prior.
