I thought their shipping was too high.....good price on parts but the shipping kills the sale for me.

Some day when you need a part the same day, you go up town and see the NAPA, O' Reily, Advance Auto Parts, and Auto Zone are all out of business, you may regret it?

Same day pickup online buying. I get the parts cheaper than using my buddies business account. We I washould running the mobile equipment shop at work I started checking online and comparing . I asked why a place that buys 10s of thousands of dollars of parts being charged more that what we can buy online as a nobody? Picking changed in a hurry. I buy from the stores if the price is reasonable. I order from Rock if I can wait.

Funny you should mention that....was just a one of those yesterday and the douche behind the counter couldn’t be bothered to say one single word when I checked out..

Such great service....

Rockauto's shipping prices to Australia are MUCH cheaper than anyone else !
Less than half the price of Summit.

Rockauto shipping to Canada is impressive. 2-3 days and usually less than $20.

I find it very hard to get everything in an order from the same warehouse. To make things worse, when you swap items in an effort to limit the number of warehouses, you find an item which was at A now isn't available from A and it has moved to B......very painful....Rock, sort out your shipping options....

You guys in the States make me laugh complaining about Rockauto's shipping prices.....enjoy what you have whilst you have it

Thanks again Rockauto for the awesome prices on my order and shipping.

Jim in Australia



PS: Rockauto, is there any fear of my car making it to a magnet?

Doesn’t have anything to do with rock auto.

I wanted to order a steering column kit yesterday from Tim mcamis but the damn shipping was $48 for standard ups. I ordered from motion race works and got free shipping.(both made in the USA) Seamed kinda high for standard shipping. The same thing happened on some small chassis brackets also. Ended up buying from summit because the shipping was more that the part.
