Where to find parts in Canada.

Good Day Everybody,

For those of you in Canada I was wondering where you get your parts from?

I used to get them at the Mustang Shop here in Calgary but I have heard that it has changed ownership and it not very good anymore. Judging by the fact that they have not bothered to respond to my requests I have to think that maybe what I have heard is correct.

Anyways, any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Too bad. I used the mustang shop while living in Calgary and still do once in away. However, it is to just PU a part I need and go. The wrench monkey is good for basic parts, with free delivery over $99 CDN. There is a place in Calgary called the Auto Value Retail?? any ways it is 34 Highfield Cir SE jus by Shaw Truck sales.

Hope into helps

why not use NPD.
the Cali store should be able to shoot it up over the border in no time and youll get 100% customer service and satisfaction

That depends on what NPD charges for shipping.

Many US companies charge stupid money to put the customs declaration on an order. Stuff delivered from the UK is cheaper than these companies.

Companies like Summit, Jegs and Rockauto are fantastic in their shipping to Canada. Usually barely more than the cost to ship in the US.

Living near the border I can and do both: shipping to a mail box in Port Huron, Michigan or to my home depending on the cost.

Millenium Mustang in Tilbury(delta BC) and Hot Rods and Classics here in Chilliwack. Anything out of the ordinary I order from CJ or NPD and ship to my US mailbox. The charges for customs and duty are usually insanity otherwise.

Did Bruce sell the Mustang Shop? Used them for many years when I lived in Calgary.

You can use eBay and have the shipper send via US Post. Never use UPS. Criminal brokerage fees. US Post to Canada Post has more reasonable fees.

Not a whole lot of options in Canada. If UPS was taken out of the equation it would be National Parts Depot hands down. Rowdy mentioned some good options in BC.

I plan to try DYK Post next time I order from the US.

I still use The Mustang Shop on occasion as it is only 3 hrs away from me. Never had an issue with them. Also have not heard that they changed ownership.

Attn: @69bossnine, just wondering what companies like Summit, Speedway or RockAuto do so that we don't incur this huge brokerage fee. UPS is really sticking it to us above the 49th, it can often be close to $100 Canadian over and above our order.

I believe that we've got a new "negotiated" deal with UPS regarding brokerage fees into Canada, beginning 2019. Let me get with my National Branch Manager on the details, and I'll try to post more tomorrow...

I still use The Mustang Shop somewhat regularly. Mostly for small stuff. I will admit though it's pretty hard to get them on the phone sometimes.

For the most part though I buy from NPD, Summit and CJ's and get the stuff shipped to the Montana Shipping Outlet in Sweetgrass. Their fees are pretty cheap and all I've ever had to pay at the border is GST. I probably go down 3 times a year and usually shipping from the vendors is free or what I would consider almost free.
