Who orders and who delivers?
ProxyParts.com brings supply and demand together; a possible purchase is made between the subscriber of ProxyParts.com and the searching party. It is important for each party to know whom they are doing business with. If something unexpectedly goes wrong with a delivery, both parties need to know whom to contact. Request/provide as much information as possible, such as name, address, city, e-mail address, telephone and/or fax number.
Ordering car parts
Provide all necessary information to ensure that you order the correct car part. Based on the license plate and/or chassis number, the supplier can often see whether the car part is suitable for the respective vehicle.
Many car parts are included in the stock records of the suppliers through their part number. It is recommended to specify this number if you know it.

Picking up or shipping car parts
If you are picking up the car part yourself or having it picked up, you can check whether it meets your expectations. Collection is always advantageous; there are no shipping and COD charges. Note that cash payment may be required; make sure you have enough cash with you. Always ask for a receipt!
If the supplier is shipping the car part to you, keep in mind that this is usually done via cash on delivery. You pay the transporter upon delivery. Make sure someone is present at the specified address to receive the shipment and provide the payment.
The supplier should be able to detect any shortcoming. If this means the car part needs to be returned, make sure you make good arrangements with the supplier.
