GMPartsdirect - what a joke

OK - so I heard this site can be a little off on the shipping charges. Take a look at this, a $21 part is $100 shipping! Got rid of the $21 part and the big item and most expensive item comes out to $12 shipping. No thanks GMPARTDIRECT

Read it again. You really saved $13.34 by ordering from them!!!

I'd spend the $100 on gas and drive up and get it myself!

Yeah GM Parts direct used to be a lot better than it is now. It seems they are really sticking it to people when it comes to shipping. I have found it much nicer to deal with Patrick at GM Parts House.

Try it again $12.95 shipping for me.

In most cases, gmpartsdirect.com total price (delivered to your business or home) is less than GM wholesale. Compare our prices with your local dealer. If you find these parts delivered to your door cheaper online, please let us know.

I did try again. It says $12.95 for shipping up to the last screen to PAY. then it changes to $100ish. I dropped the Hot Wheels emblem and just got the arm rest. Thought I could save money by ordering 2 items on one order. Nope.

Give them a call or shoot them an e-mail sounds like a web site problem.

I've ordered from there a couple of times and have never had any funny issues like that.

I think it's funny that rather than pick up a phone and call them to inform them of the error people just get on public forums and bash them..

no computer program is perfect, no database is 100% accurate and when dealing with 10s of thousands of parts mistakes happen..

For anyone familiar with technology, this is clearly a programming or configuration error that would be addressed by simply calling them for assistance or even sending them an email. I'll bet that would really appreciate being told about this issue so they could get their IT team moving to diagnose and fix the problem....

For OEM parts I've been really pleased with www.gmpartshous.com


Sent from my iPad because I've been sucked into the terrible but inescapable black hole that is Apple inc.

Yeah probably an error. Contact them direct and I bet it's lower than that.

It is. I've saved more money from gmpartsdirect.com than I ever have using anyone else. If the part isn't in some far off warehouse or on back order, I usually have the parts on my door in about 3 days.

But you have to shop around. I get a great discount from my local dealer, but for the most part, I can't find hardly anyone who can beat GMPD on delivered prices. On small items like bolts, or big stuff like hoods, etc., it's likely it won't be a deal. But if you're buying several items like ZL1console lids and hot wheels emblems, start adding them up...in this case, I can get both those items from my dealer for 7 bucks more than GMPD.

Sometimes you can find a better price, but only if you're willing to beat the bushes. I've purchased from vendors here because I like to support those that support us, but I've never got a better deal $$-wise from any vendor here over GMPD. That's a fact. Example, I paid about 10 bucks or so more than GMPD to get a ZL1 grill from GMpartshous, but hey, I wanted to support them. Same part. So why pay more if you know where to get it cheaper?

If you see a part that has questionable shipping, rather than b*tch to us, tell them and find out the real deal. They usually appreciate the heads up and I've had many issues taken care of like weird estimated shipping charges and saved money in the process.

Y'all who b*tch about the shipping/handling are overlooking the total price. No matter, it's your money. Spend more for the same parts I can get cheaper than you. I don't care. Unless you're getting jobber prices from your local dealer, you're likely paying more than buying from GMPD.

And for anyone wondering what 22937305 is.....it's the deck lid version of this.

Here's a good test: see if you can get this hot wheel emblem set anywhere else public retail for $208.31 or less delivered to your door. (list price is $270.13) If you can, please report back here because then I've found a new GM parts source I'll buy from. (for reference, GMpartshouse.com is $232.41 delivered, GMpartseast comes in at $214.25 delivered)

22935197 Front end emblem ($102.55 list price)
22937299 LH fender emblem ($66.60 list price)
22937300 RH fender emblem ($66.60 list price)
22937305 Decklid emblem ($34.38 list price)
