An Association formed by installers for installers

The Association Of Vehicle Installers

Welcome to the Association of Vehicle Installers 

Welcome to the Association of Vehicle Installers (AVI). The AVI is the new voice for our Industry and represents all sectors including manufacturers, retailers, converters, and installers.

The aftermarket vehicle installation community is a huge sector of the motor trade, creating specific user defined solutions for the end user, which would not normally be available from the vehicle manufacturer

Whether you’re a vehicle manufacturer, device manufacturer, supplier or customer, a quality installation is important.

Knowing that the technician has installed it to the correct standard will ensure the device will work correctly and will not interfere with the normal vehicle operation.
