PartsTrain: The facts

You may well of heard of PartsTrain, a leading website for sourcing auto parts online. This article looks at various aspects of dealing with this company and touches upon the company, the products, the prices and the website. For more information, go to Partstrain.com.

The company

PartsTrain describe themselves as a rapid response supplier of car parts and truck parts for a range of customers including the individual, car repair and auto body shops, and parts retailers. They claim that they have over 1,000,000 parts (one million parts!) available at massively reduced and discounted prices. The commitment to customer satisfaction is quite evident throughout the site and it appears that they are very customer-driven which is nice to see from such a large car parts wholesale site.

The products

The products are of a good quality and receive consistently high ratings and reviews. You can source everything from wing mirror repair kits to gaskets and plugs. The website also benefits from being able to order parts by car manufacturer or model which is great for when you are not too sure about which parts will fit your particular make and model of car. All of the products are complemented by "How To Guides" and other types of advice which is scattered around the website.

The prices

The prices appear to be very reasonable and this is certainly something that shows through in reviews. Many people comment on how low the prices are, but the quality of the product is not compromised. Many of the products enjoy a huge discount on the manufacturer RRP which makes buying parts less of a problem financially.

The website

Website appearance and functionality Their website is easy to use and intuitively designed. The colour scheme is consistent throughout and the blues and yellows do not strain the eye or cause confusion on different website sections. Functionality is good and the website loads quickly with standard broadband and does not seem to have any issues handling large web image files or large amounts of text. Website security The website security is good and the company states that it used 128 bit encryption on its servers to ensure your maximum privacy and security. Upon investigation, the website also passed through Norton SafeWeb website tests (tested: 17.07.11).
