f car parts. The use of more and more modern solutions may obscure rationality. So how to take care of your car from overseas?
American cars are real classics and unique "specimens" for Europeans. It is not surprising that even people who know the automotive industry want to consult experts when they face the choice of parts for cars from the USA. The Western world is often a mystery to us that must be gradually discovered. European American car owners learn about their vehicle slowly, and over time they will learn how it works. This is probably the best and natural method.
The combination of European standards with an American machine is quite an interesting experiment, especially when there is so much to discover during a joint technological and cultural journey.
Looking for parts on American sites (those
American cars are gaining more and more interest in Poland. Big Suvs or brands like Chevrolet and Chrysler are slowly filling the streets of our cities. However, there is one problem, due to the fact that these are still not very popular cars, parts for cars from the USA are difficult to find, here is where the Internet comes to our aid.
When looking for parts for our car, first look for them on the European market, it will be the fastest option and certainly less expensive than importing from the United States, but if we are forced to import some parts from overseas, we are not afraid of it. When looking for parts on American websites (those with the .us domain), check if there is transport to Poland available. The transport of goods from the states to Europe is most often carried out by sea, in addition to the price for transport, remember about one more, additional fee, namely customs duty, for goods such as car parts, it is 4.5%. Sometimes buying parts for our car from the United States will be the only option for us, so don't be afraid and be patient.
Brands such as Dodge or vintage
The American car market for Europeans is still not as easily accessible as American automotive fans would like it to. Brands such as Dodge or historic Cadillac, however, are gaining recognition on our continent, so it is worth taking an interest in where to get parts for cars from the USA, whenever the need arises.
It is true that this market is not very much in demand, especially in our country. American cars are a rarity on our streets, the only salvation for us may be websites. Private sellers or small companies can have everything we need, but when buying parts we should pay attention to a few things. First of all, let's check the prices on American websites, of course the prices will be higher, but they should not be more than 20-25% of the local price, let's also pay attention to the condition of these parts, the small number of photos of this object should worry us. So let's buy wisely and remember that patience will be our ally.
If it can be maintained
Cars make our lives much easier. However, we cannot always afford them. However, if we want to own a vehicle that is unusual, American cars will certainly surprise us. You can find very beautiful models among them - both among the older and newer ones. The only problem arises when it comes to refurbishing a car that does not come from the European market. Ordering parts for cars from the US can be quite a feat. Some parts can be found at wholesalers in the country or nearby countries. Unfortunately, quite often it happens that it will be necessary to bring parts from the USA, where they are available immediately. This is usually associated with a longer waiting time for the repair of the vehicle and higher costs associated with it. You will have to spend more for the parts themselves. If such a car can be maintained, it shouldn't be a problem. If not, then it is worth considering something produced in Europe.
