International Shipping Policies

To place an International order:
If you live outside the US, Canada or Puerto Rico, and wish to place an order, you may either submit an order through our online ordering shopping cart, or email, or phone our Foreign Order desk at 352-861-8700, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm eastern standard time. Due to the dynamic nature of international commerce, our shipping methods and rates, as well as estimated delivery times, must be quoted on an individual basis. No matter which method you use to submit an order, you will be contacted by our Export Department to assist you through the process.

Orders may be paid by VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Fund Wire Transfers may be arranged.

If you do not have a recent catalog, please follow the online Catalog Request link, and we will promptly send you our current edition free of charge.

International Shipping charges:
Orders destined outside the lower 48 states (Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico): You will be charged the actual cost of shipping your order. The $300 Free Shipping policy does not apply. (Customer will be responsible for all duties and import taxes)

"Please note: All duty charges, brokerage fees & any taxes are calculated and collected in the country of delivery."

Orders destined for Canada:

"Please note: All duty charges, brokerage fees & any taxes are calculated and collected in the country of delivery."

International Backorders:
Ordinarily, we ship every international order complete, since shipping a backordered item overseas is very costly. Unless you instruct us to do otherwise, your entire order will be held until any backordered item is also ready to ship. If this is unacceptable, please advise your salesperson at the time of the order so alternative arrangements may be made.

International Shipping Reviews

I’m a repeat customer, living in a foreign country. Trust and good service is a priority and National Parts Depot has accomplished that with flying colors. The best under one roof.

Zachary V.

Perfect services. First for sending the catalog to Denmark without questioning. And secondly for shipping the parts to a hotel without any problems and in perfect time. Will for sure recommend other foreigners interested in cars to shop here.

R. Simonsen

This was an experimental purchase. Needed a couple small patch panels. Wanted to compare costs versus ordering from a Canadian supplier. Pleasantly surprised that after all costs were factored in, it was cheaper. Maybe won’t be the case on larger purchases but for this one it was. Took less than 10 days to come (to Canada) as well. All in all a good experience.
