I usually check Amazon first because I have a Prime membership and get free 2 day shipping (plus they have free, no hassle returns). A lot of times they have parts listed as "used" which in reality are just parts that someone ordered but were the wrong thing and returned, I get some great deals on those. I just got 2 "used" Mann air and cabin filters for just over $2 each with free 2 day shipping And yesterday I installed a "used" radiator I got for my Volvo that I paid $90, it looked like it had never been out of the box, again with free 2 day shipping.

Only place I order from. The prices are consistently the lowest and the main guy Mike is a pleasure to deal with.

One major point to note, do not go with ANY company that will only ship UPS. They will do everything they can to bugger you with their "brokerage fees" on ANY item that crosses the border.

I purchased brake rotors (rear) this summer, from UUC. They were on sale for $25. UPS charged me a brokerage fee of $40.22 for them. (Which I paid via cc at my front door) then they when I complained, they refunded me a reasonable sized chunk of that fee (great right?) and some shmuck in their accounting department proceeded to send my file to a collection agency for the full amount ($40.22) thus going out of their way to bugger my credit rating over a fee that not only had I paid, but they then chose to refund a portion of due to it's astronomical cost.

It took 3 months of arguing, emails, constantly talking to next level management etc. to end the calls from the collection agency. (The black mark is still on my credit rating).

Just wait.....5 years from now you'll start getting calls from "The Takhar Group", a bunch of vultures that try and coerce you into paying "delinquent bills" you don't actually owe.

Really?? I've never heard of such a thing. I would have just refused the shipment if it was me.
