Optimum Dealers Services was formed as a partnership between Missouri Auto Dealers Association and the St Louis Auto Dealers Association to deliver premium products and services to maximize profitability for our members. Our goal is to provide a higher level of service and strengthen the partnerships between the associations and the members they serve.

Optimum Dealer Services takes the time to meet, interview, and determine if a vendor is right for the dealer members we serve. With an array of products and services, from F&I Income Development, to payment processing, to oil and chemicals, Optimum chooses only premium partners and negotiates a competitive price for our members.

Optimum Dealer Services’ number one goal is to serve our dealer members. We are here to do the legwork for the Dealer principle, so they can do what’s important: run the dealership, sell more cars, and increase profitability.  We are looking out for our members, and using our time to research top companies in the market. We only provide the best partners. When an Automotive Dealer meets with Optimum, they are meeting an extension of their dealership.
