CCAMS Study Shows DIYers Don’t Need Much Help When it Comes to Buying Wiper Blades

When asked in IMR Inc.’s Continuing Consumer Automotive Maintenance Survey (CCAMS) what they did first when purchasing wiper blades, 79.9 percent of DIYers said they visited the store. Only 15.4 percent of DIYers said they visited a website before buying wipers while 4.7 percent said they called a store to get more information.

“With a product like wiper blades, our CCAMS survey reveals that almost 80 percent of DIYers are very comfortable making a purchase without doing much research beforehand,” said Bill Thompson, president and CEO of IMR Inc. “Unlike a product like brakes or sensors, a vast majority of DIYers feel they have the knowledge to make an informed buying decision without asking for help.”
