Independent Garage Owners of North Carolina – IGONC

IGONC is North Carolina’s largest member-sponsored non profit association serving the independent automotive repair, service and collision industry for over 60 years.

“Since joining the IGO several years ago I have enjoyed many benefits the organization has to offer. I’m always learning something new at the Unit meetings and trade shows. Meeting other shop owners has created a network of friends and resources for me. The insurance offered is automotive industry-specific and the price and coverage is unbeatable.” – Stan Creech Creech Import Repair Raleigh, NC

Serving the independent automotive repair, service and collision industry since 1959

We distribute the most up-to-date information on automotive repair and business practices; we protect our members from unfavorable legislative initiatives; and we build productive relations between our members, automotive vendors and the motoring public. Simply put, our members become more successful by accessing the IGONC resources listed here and by being part of a community of fellow independent garage owners that maintains a support network primarily through regional unit meetings, the trade show and ongoing one-to-one contact.
