Transporting and Packaging New/Used Car Parts

Shipping car parts can be an important part of car ownership if you are someone who likes to modify cars. 

If you are looking for a part for your car, or if you are looking for a new car, you may be able to find what you’re looking for online. There are many websites devoted to selling car parts, and there are also some websites that sell cars themselves. 

As with any type of online purchase, you want to make sure that you are dealing with a reputable website. This is even more important for car components, because the part you are buying has to be compatible with your car, and you want to make sure that it will be delivered to you without damage. 

When you buy car parts online, shipping can be a big part of the cost. However, transporting car parts is not difficult, and you can often find companies that will send the parts for you at a reasonable price. 

Transporting used car parts can be a very common thing to do. There are many different companies that deal with sending used car parts, and they all have their own rules and regulations. 

There are also many different rules that are set by the government, and companies that deal with sending used car parts are often required to follow these rules. 

For instance, transporting used car parts internationally can be very difficult, and it is often necessary to fill out forms and deal with customs before sending. 

There are also rules about shipping used car parts that are designed to protect the consumer. In order to buy used car parts from a foreign country, the seller is often required to give the buyer a certificate of origin.

Packaging car parts properly

It’s vital to know the difference between a used car part and a new car part and how to package each properly for sending. 

If you’re looking to send used car parts, such as alternators, starters, tail lights, engine parts, bumpers, etc., they can normally be shipped via courier. However, it is very important that you package them in a way that protects them and that they can’t move around in the box during transport. 

All couriers have different rules about shipping car parts, but typically they require that you use a corrugated cardboard box. A box that is slightly larger than the item being posted is ideal. 

You should use crumpled up newspaper or foam peanuts between each layer of the box to protect it. For example, if you’re shipping a starter, place it between two layers of newspaper, then place another layer of newspaper on top of it. Pack it tightly, so there are no gaps or holes. 

It’s important to pack parts so they can’t move around in the box during delivery. If you’re shipping a large part, such as an engine, you should pack it in several boxes, with each box packed in the same way. 

New car parts, such as windshield wipers, side view mirrors, etc., are generally small enough to be posted in a padded envelope. However, you should check with the courier regarding the sizing requirements for new car parts. Some may require a box, while others will be fine in a padded postage envelope. 

You should take a look at a few different items to get a feel for the size of the postage envelope you will need for transport. The important thing is to make sure you pack them in a way that they can’t move around in the box.

Shipping dimensions for auto parts will vary depending on the courier. For example, a domestic package must not exceed 4 feet in length and 2 feet in width. Some of the couriers will also have specific height restrictions. It’s always worth checking with the courier before you order. 

The maximum shipping weight for auto parts is, again, dependent on the courier. For most couriers, the maximum postage weight is 30 kgs. 

Shipping Warranty for car parts

Shipping warranty for auto parts is very important, as you will be responsible for the loss of the part if you choose not to extend the warranty cover. The warranty cover is also important if you are sending parts to another country. warranty cover is available with certain couriers for an extra fee, but some may offer it for free. It’s worth checking with the courier you choose.

Shipping car parts internationally

If you are shipping car parts internationally, you’ll need to clear the paperwork with the customs authorities. Some parts are restricted or classified as dangerous, and you’ll need to apply for special clearance from the customs authorities. 

The paperwork may take a few days to a week, depending on the country you’re delivering to. It’s a good idea to look for a good courier service that will ship your car parts internationally. 

Finding the right courier company

You should look for a courier that has a good track record and reviews from customers. A good courier will have the right skills to deliver your car parts on time. The best courier will also offer the best postage rates. 

You’ll need to compare the rates of several courier companies before you settle on one. Car parts can be expensive, and you should find a courier that offers reasonable rates for shipping and delivery.

    "Hi
    Your concept is a good one
    Few small things ;
    1. I have an account but your system does not seem to recognize it when I open up website to order
    2. Quotes come up with two prices but only given an option for the more
    expensive one - why is that ?
    3. How do the prices offered compare to having a direct account with one if the providers
    Regards Ian"

    This is only our first interaction with Fast courier. We have created an account now will try to use for further bookings to find out if we can get consistent service. So far the booking process was quite easy and the prices were very competitive. The only reason I have 4 start is because firstly we only had a single interaction with Fast courier and secondly there is always room for improvement. Such as discount to regular account holders and better customer service in case of an issue, which we have yet to experience. Thanks

    - Mary Sydney, NSW

    The online booking was quick and easy to use, and clearly displayed the rates for various options. However although "pick up today" was offered online, the parcel wasn't actually picked up until the following day so missed the function it was intended for. But that said, pickup and delivery were eventually completed smoothly, and we received updates to confirm where things were up to, which was helpful. Would be happy to use the service again!

    - Lorelle Spring Mountain, QLD

    "So the good news is my item got delivered within a decent timeframe. Customer service was very quick to respond and price was affordable.
    However, the parcel had to be rebooked twice for pick-up and only after sending an email to ask what was happening did the parcel get picked up. After the parcel got picked up, it disappeared from my account and I was not able to track it. Again, after an email to customer service, I was informed that it was being processed. My client received the parcel after about 5 days. I did not receive any notification of the delivery and as mentioned before, was not able to track the parcel the entire time so I was a worried if it got lost in transit.
    Overall, good service but needs better systemisation."
