Kudos to Rockauto


I needed a power steering hose for my 63 Parisienne so I checked locally and found if I could get the part, it would be 2 weeks plus, Rockauto has them available with a 2 week max delivery. I ordered it Monday morning, it shipped  Monday and was cleared customs in Canada late on Tuesday, it arrived here this morning via the post office. Cost for shippingwas under CDN$12. The part bolted right on, like it should.

 

Delivery exceeded my expectations, the price was great, altogether a great experience.

 

Thanks,

Don

Just going to order some stuff form RockAuto,
So I know what to expect .. Shipping ground will show up at my post office ? No hidden fees?
Wasn't able to find the info on their site .

So I thought I'd ask those who have purchased previously.

Thanks..

Nothing extra. Bought a few items too. Same price as quoted in US funds so you might find a small difference with your card conversion unless you have a US account. Prompt and everything has fit with just a couple swings of the hammer.

Just would like to add that if you know the part number, you can check it on Wrench Monkey.ca. I was able to get mufflers, oil filters, wheel bearings, power steering hose and other parts at near the same price in Canadian dollars as the US prices in USD. Rock Auto is cheaper but you have to factor shipping exchange etc. Summit is good too. Wrench Monkey has free shipping on over $99 purchase but if it's something you need quickly I would call them first as they tend to show everything is in stock when sometimes it has to be ordered. They ship out of Toronto and I have had good luck with them.

Ordered a part from wrenchmonkey. It showed in stock, they took my order then got a call that they didn't have it and couldn't get it.

I'm still waiting for something to break so I can order from Rock Auto! I like the idea of supporting them because they are a Canadian Poncho sponsor.

All experiences with Rock Auto have been straight forward and as expected.
Rock Auto uses their own name bearing tape to wrap parcels making them obvious. Last time I went to the post office to pick one up the clerk commented on how many packages our small town post office processes from them.

IMG_0401.JPGWell I don't know how much more reasonable prices can be than this. I'm sometimes embarrassed on how small the amount is on some of these small parts I need.

Guys, from your experiences, does Rock Auto always use mail into Canada?

Yup, Canada Post is the final deliverer. Tracking is with DHL.

Hmm, that's interesting. DHL would be Canada Post's competition (Purolator).

I'm itching to try this Rock Auto deal for myself!

Yes, I was trying to say that but I think I did a poor job with my English. I need JohnneeD to give me English lessons.

Just did a quick check on Rock Auto web site and noted that in the top right corner below the logo there is a drop down list that shows 10 different price structures.   Select your country and it is all converted to the price of your choice.

Makes it easy to compare pricing..

......as mentioned in another post I ordered a front hub for our F150........was $120 cheaper thru Rockauto compared to

$327 locally -  I will buy locally if the prices are close but can't afford that kind of a hit.....will order from the Rock again

Just ordered a fuel pump module for a co worker's Chevy Colorado. It's a genuine GM part and is $200 cheaper than local. I also ordered a throttle cable for one of our bee trucks- 2010 Ram 2500 Diesel. Dealer said they couldn't get one. I found the Mopar part on Rock Auto. It's on it's way.

I want to use them for a caliper for my 68 Chevy II. Price quoted is amazing & shipping reasonable. I'd like to contact them to ask If I can order it stainless sleeved but can't find a 'Contact Us' link anywhere on their website. All I can see is answers to Commonly Asked Questions but no way to ask a specific question.
Can anyone tell me if there is a way or maybe I'm just missing it somewhere?
