Auto Parts FAQ

Questions and Answers:

Many people consider the local automotive dealership or parts store the only solution to purchasing automotive products and supplies. However, finding automotive supplies online is becoming more common among consumers. How does buying automotive supplies online work versus the conventional local dealership or store? InfoFAQ has compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions when purchasing automotive products online.

Frequently Asked Questions About Auto Parts Online

What kinds of automotive parts are available from websites online?

Virtually everything a car could possible need is now available online from web retailers.

What is the advantage of going online for automotive parts?

There are many specialty and racing parts providers that operate websites. This gives you access to the cutting edge technology you need direct from the producers in many cases. In some cases you can find parts and accessories that you can’t get anywhere locally.

Are there any advantages to buying tires online?

Many of the web based tire dealers will be able to sell you tires at a much better price than you might pay locally. Another important feature of some online tire stores are the consumer reports on the tires. On some sites you can read what other drivers, with the same car as you, have written about the different brands and models of tires. This helps a lot when shopping for specialized tires like for snow or racing.

If I purchase tires online, how will I get them mounted on my car?

Most online tire dealers will have a listing of local shops that will install your tires for a set price. But you can still go ask your local shop what they would charge for mounting, balance, and disposal of your old tires. You can also ask your local tire dealer if they will beat or match the prices you have been quoted online.

Can I get better deals online than in a local store when shopping for auto parts?

Yes. Online retailers of auto parts general will beat the prices you can find in local stores. Looking online for the best price may lead you to a great source or parts that you will continue to use for years.

Is there an automotive website that offers the best prices on BMW and Porsche parts?

Vertex Automotive in Florida is a direct parts importer, and seems to have by far the best prices on parts for German cars, especially for Porsches. Their web site is http://www.vertexauto.com

Will I be able to return an automotive part I bought online if it’s the wrong part?

This will vary by website, so be sure that you read their return policy. Also double check on the part number and details when ordering, and print out your receipt.

How safe is it to buy auto parts online?

The online buying process is now typically very secure. Many people worry about giving their credit card numbers on the Internet, but this actually protects you, as you can have any un-authorized charges reversed by your credit card company. Using a credit card also helps protect you because you can have the charge reversed if you have any problems with the online auto merchant.

If I already know that automotive part that I want to buy online, how can I find the best deal on it?

If you want to search for a specific automotive product online for the best price, you can search for the product by name on the www.froogle.com website. This will display a list of the companies selling the product and their respective prices.

Are there auto clubs online that I can join?

Most auto clubs now days will have their own website. This lets you join the club even if you are not in their local area. This can be great for tech tips and news on events and sources of parts and accessories. Its also great for meeting new people that are into the same kinds of cars as you.
