Auto Safety House is a Total Fleet Solutions provider assisting end user and fleet operators of all types (Municipalities, School Districts, Contractors, Public Utilities, and other miscellaneous private fleets) with products and services that enable them to maintain and operate their vehicles and equipment in a safe and efficient manner.
Our expertise in truck equipment, work truck accessories, buses (new, pre-owned, school and commercial), parts and service, trailer parts and equipment, emergency lighting, plus miscellaneous equipment and gear used by work crews across a variety of industries is what establishes our reputation as a Total Fleet Solutions provider.
Auto Safety House has earned this reputation with more than 75 years of being in business. We look forward to strengthening this reputation further as a partner to help you with all of your transportation needs today and tomorrow.
Our business history dates back to 1912 in Jerome, Arizona, where a tiny one-man shop was selling and servicing automobiles and motorcycles. Throughout the years, our company has expanded to service the transportation needs of Arizona by providing parts, equipment, and service for all size trucks, trailers, recreational vehicles, and buses. We operate a 60,000 square foot headquarters facility in Phoenix, as well as locations in Tucson and Holbrook, Arizona.
Our company history has always involved us with the vehicles’ “safety” components; hence the name “Auto Safety House”. We sell axles, brakes, suspension and steering system components as well as lights, mirrors, electrical components, and many other related parts and equipment products for trucks, trailers, buses, and recreational vehicles. We represent over 200 different product lines with thousands of parts ready for delivery to our wholesale, fleet, and retail customers.
Auto Safety House first opened its doors in 1941 here in Phoenix as a sister company and service arm of Hydraulic Brake Supply, a supplier of air and hydraulic brake parts. The ’50s brought the need to relocate to a larger location as the business grew. With the larger location, Auto Safety House was able to expand operations into parts and service on a wide assortment of buses, trucks and trailers. ASH continued to focus on braking, steering and suspension systems. Soon after relocating, Auto Safety House began selling customized truck bodies and flatbeds for a variety of industries, including ranching, logging and utility companies.
In 1958, a manufacturer of school buses approached Auto Safety House to become their exclusive dealer in Arizona. With a lot of dedication and a strong sales team, ASH’s new endeavor paid off.
Auto Safety House once again outgrew its operations in 1977 and moved to our current location in the heart of Phoenix with close proximity to leading truck and trailer suppliers as well as fleet operators. In 1993, the first branch of Auto Safety House opened in Tucson. 2002 saw an opening of our Northern Arizona branch in Holbrook. Then in 2004 we became the exclusive dealer for Thomas Built Buses in Arizona. We were excited by the positive feedback of the two branches.
In February of 2017, Auto Safety House was acquired by The W.W. Williams Company, LLC. By aligning ourselves with W.W. Williams, the company will be able to serve our customers in new ways as the company begins to thrive in the marketplace.
With excellent vendor partnerships with companies including Thomas Built Buses, Daimler, Knapheide, Ford, Cummins, Dexter, Whelen, Tommy Gate and Federal Signal our product offerings are unmatched in the market.
