Diesel engines have come to be the very base that runs the economy and lives of the people around the world. For this reason, diesel parts suppliers have come to play a key and critical role in the diesel ecosystem, making the link between the major manufactures and the consumers who need these parts for their use. However, with many suppliers mushrooming in almost every part of town each day, knowing where to get the best products for your diesel engine can be a slopy deal than you expect. Here are five major questions you must ask and find satisfactory answers before you agree to go down and ink the deal.
- Certified or not certified? Diesel parts suppliers are often certified by major brands to handle their products. The certification process is often tedious, intense and far reaching aimed at ensuring that the supplier adheres to company standards. These tough set of conditions is often aimed at ensuring that the level of service at the supplier meets that of the manufacturer to ensure customers continue to have trust in the mother company. Certified to deal in Bosch? Nice! Certified to deal in Odenso? Nice! And the list goes on and on. Just ensure that your supplier is certified to deal in your favourite brand to have confidence that you will get high end service.
- Do you stock my brand? What else will you be waiting for when the supplier doesn’t deal in your brand? It is just as simple as pack and check elsewhere!
- Do you stock OEM parts? – Every reputable diesel parts supplier must take the via to only stock original, authentic OEM parts, like it or not. While there are clients who may be eyeing a deal with counterfeits, that’s not your place if you need original products. Ensure that the supplier you are dealing with has original products before discussing anything else.
Enforce warranties? There is a big difference between a warrant provided by your diesel parts supplier and that provided by the manufacturer. Manufacturers are the last person on the line, so they won’t escape from responsibility when you show the warranty. Some suppliers may also handle and effect warranties, but be sure on this before you proceed
