    •  Arch Auto Parts, an auto parts supplier in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island, New York, has reported strong sales of OE-quality parts resulting from explosive growth in rideshare services Uber, Lyft, Juno and Via, and on-demand delivery services. In the past four years, NYC ride-hail app pickups have grown from zero to 15 million trips per month, according to NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) data, via toddwschneider.com. About half of NYC ride-hail pickups are in the outer boroughs, where taxis have historically been less prevalent. Ride-hail app services now make approximately 10 times more pick-ups than green and yellow taxis combined in the outer boroughs.

      The surge in Uber, Lyft and other commercial drivers is good news for Arch Auto Parts, which reports a spike in demand for competitively priced, OE-quality parts. To maintain their TLC license, vehicles used for Uber and Lyft must pass inspections at least every four months, so drivers stay on top of service and repairs and closely track expenses. Arch Auto Parts says it provides these independent contractors in-stock availability of OE-quality parts, at deep discount prices typically only available to commercial fleets.

      “Many Uber and Lyft drivers log more than 50,000 miles per year, so they quickly reach their vehicle manufacturer’s warranty limit. They still want OE-quality parts, but without the high dealer prices,” said Lucy Henner, Arch Auto Parts vice president of marketing. “These high-mileage drivers are opting for high-quality parts not only for better performance, but also to reduce their total service expenses. Labor charges are the biggest component of most repair bills. They don’t want to pay labor charges to service the car twice, when an OE-quality part will often last twice as long.”
