Distributor Policies & Information

Distributor Policies & Information of


In order to obtain distributor pricing, we require that you be in the business of selling automotive parts and accessories for classic GM cars. Our warehouse distributor program is designed for those who can maintain a minimum quarterly purchasing level of $5000.00 or more. We also offer discounts for restoration oriented, body, paint and mechanical installation shops: those who operate service oriented businesses in automotive. Please inquire directly for mid-level pricing.

An opening order that contains only merchandise for the restoration of one or two does not qualify for distributor level pricing. Most items not contained herein that we offer in our retail website are priced for wholesale. Simply phone our order desk for pricing.

Minimum Order

The minimum opening order for warehouse distributor pricing is $10,000.00.

Warehouse Distributor

Distributors must maintain a purchasing level of at least $3500.00 per quarter.

Volume Discounts

We offer volume discounts on most items that we manufacture. All distributors are required to maintain a Minimum Advertised Price (M.A.P) to obtain distributor volume discount pricing. We reserve the right to cancel a distributor's volume discount price status if Minimum Advertised Price (M.A.P.) is not maintained.

Business Permits

All distributors are required to send in a copy of their sellers permit, business license and sales tax license as proof of business before being approved for distributors wholesale pricing. We will not offer discount pricing to those who do not meet this criteria.

Distributor Pricing Conditions

We reserve the right to cancel a distributor's discount price status if a distributor does not perform within reason based on the terms and conditions contained herein.

Form of Payment

RESTOPARTS will ship distributor orders COD (company check accepted) upon approval of credit application. Customers not meeting the requirements for check approval must pay COD (certified check, cashier's check or money order) upon delivery. Distributors may also use major credit cards to eliminate COD fees for UPS orders or truck freight orders. An additional $5.00 processing fee will be added to orders paid by Visa, MasterCard, or Discover. American Express orders will be charged an additional $8.00 processing fee per order. Distributors who have a company check acceptable COD account will have one COD tag per order when multiple boxes are being shipped. RESTOPARTS reserves the right to revoke the customer's COD company check accepted status if orders are refused or returned checks are received. If a multiple box order is shipped and the box with the COD tag is refused by the customer, we reserve the right to change the customer's payment status and all future orders will be shipped COD cash only with a COD tag placed on each box. The proper COD amounts will be applied to each box so the contents will match the COD amount. The customer will be charged a 10% service charge (minimum $50.00) on each returned check plus 2% interest per month.

Business owners in the state of California must supply a sellers permit signed by a principal owner in order that we can sell/ship to you waiving the state sales tax in accordance with the California State Board of Equalization.
