Cut price delivery rates at Euro4x4parts - this is how it works !
Here at Euro4x4parts we don't make any profit on delivery - our transporters invoice us and then we just invoice you at cost price.
Try to think of delivery costs as a necessary evil ! They allow you to get hard-to-find 4x4 spares at great prices, quickly and right to your doorstep.
Thanks to the rapidly growing activity at Euro4x4parts we can regularly renegotiate contracts with our partners to reduce and control these costs. Delivery prices are structured to reflect as close as possible the true weight of your parcel. Delivery is only charged once per order - even if your parts are delivered in split packages. If you have made a mistake in your order we need to establish why this happened. There are 2 scenarios:
- if we are responsible for the mistake (e.g a part number or application error, incomplete product description) we will bear the cost of returning the part to us and, where applicable, the cost of dispatching the correct part to you,
- if there is no evidence that we are responsible for the mistake the return costs will be at your expense.
To help you estimate delivery costs that your order will incur and to avoid unpleasant surprises, please feel free to use the calculator below.
We hope we've answered your questions concerning delivery rates. Please feel free to contact us with any further queries or suggestions.
Go green - have it delivered! Purchasing on line has a reduced environmental impact compared to "traditional" shopping, where the consumer often has to drive to the store himself or herself.
FEVAD (the French e-commerce and mail order trade association) have conducted a comparative study on the environmental impact of online purchasing in relation to traditional shopping. The result is clear-cut: by limiting travel, e-commerce can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, an important factor in global warming. The study shows that the total number of trips generated by more than 5,400 deliveries of goods ordered over the Internet via e-commerce saves 10.09 km of journey per delivery, leading to a saving of 53000 km in total. In terms of annual sales of the two brands cited in the study, the potential reduction comes to 768000 tons of CO2, in other words the amount of carbon absorbed by a forest of 126,000 hectares per year!
Ecology and peace of mind
E-commerce is therefore an important means to attain the "factor 4" objective, set at the French Grenelle de l'environnement (French environmental round table), which plans to divide greenhouse gas emissions in France by 4 before 2050. E-commerce also allows fuel consumption for these journeys to be divided by 4.5. This saving is the equivalent to the annual heating needs of the Charente-Maritime (a French departement with a population of almost 612000 people). In addition, the study shows that the benefits are not only environmental but also human: each purchase on the Internet results in a gain of over 20 minutes just on travelling!
