Give us an example of what types of parts you can carry. Engine parts? OEM interior pieces? or just cleaning and maintenance supplies

Regular maintenance items like spark plugs and wires would be good. Sensors and other electronic things like the coil pack would be good as well. Power steering hoses & pumps, cooling fans & clutches. Really, just anything that would be good to replace on a 20+ year old vehicle.

Interior bits would be awesome. I can get cleaning and maintenance stuff at autozone. It's the little interior things always getting broken that you can never find.

The range is from engine, drivetrain, suspension, etc. We are looking into finding a source for actual interior pieces.

Our objective is creating a store that allows us to ship parts to you without the need to driving to find them.

Thank you for the response!

Awesome feedback!

We have maintenance parts coming in for stock. Sensors and ignition items will also be in stock soon. Steering components and the cooling parts you listed will be noted. This is the feedback we need!

Thank you for taking the time!

We are going to look into interior parts for stock. Thank you for the good feedback!

Question, what would you say is the breaking point where you would shop online instead of going to Autozone? Any feedback on this would help as we are trying to make parts shopping easier for the enthusiast that works Monday-Friday. Thanks again!

A lower price is about it, and a selection of better quality cleaners would be nice. Although personally I'm not so picky anymore since I quit detailing.

As far as price, we are trying to stay below or equal to Autozone and Walmart with free shipping. We currently carry the basics express items from Meguiar's and Turtle Wax along with wash supplies by Carrand.

I'm the same now also, I have someone do a good wax for me and then maintain it with spray wax. I call it, "Supporting small business and laziness". :D

Weatherstripping I can see being a good item since AFAIK, junkyards are the only option for many of us at this point.

Interior pieces seem to be popular. This is a category that we will focus on and find a supplier. Thank you for the input! I'm the same when it comes to fitment, it needs to be OE or OE style. We are purposely avoiding universal fitment parts.

Thanks!

Autozone is really not that cheap I find same parts even Motorcraft on ebay for less. For me Autozone is for emergency when you need that part today. I buy my oil, filters spark plugs, additives and cleaning supplies from Autozone. Otherwise I do most of my parts shopping on ebay. I find a lot of NOS Motorcraft sensors and other NOS parts for super cheap prices if you know how to search for them. But if you can source out suppliers for NOS OEM interior pieces or aftermarket that be something I think all of us would be interested in.

Noted! Thanks for the input.

Hopefully if you are busy during the week we can save you the trip to Autozone and have it shipped to you. :D

Bosch is a more well known name, for your sake it'd probably be a better option if you're only selling one brand. But I think carter is better
