Custom car grilles are extremely popular on the car modification scene. They transform the look of the vehicle and offer enhanced protection for the delicate radiator workings within - parts that are usually not covered by the warranty.
If you are considering purchasing a custom car grille for your vehicle, you need to make sure you are buying from a reputable and authorised seller. Safety and performance should be at the heart of the seller's ethos.
This is the case with Zunsport – one of the automobile industry's leading custom parts suppliers. But what about other retailers and e-tailers? Counterfeit car parts and faulty accessories can be expensive and even dangerous. How can you be sure you can trust your seller? Below are some questions you should ask before buying, to make sure you don't get conned.
Is The Company Accredited?
The automotive trade has some of the tightest regulations and safety standards of any industry. From car sales to local garages and custom modifications, every aspect of car servicing and sales should be carried out by qualified professionals who hold relevant licenses and accreditations.
If your chosen seller does not prominently display logos and licence numbers for verifiable organisations, they are probably better avoided. Custom car grille manufacturer Zunsport is part of the Lloyds Register of Quality Assurance. We undergo regular performance audits, and we are a licensed and registered company.
What Is The Manufacturer's Service History?
Whether you are buying grilles 'off the shelf' or looking for a custom car grille manufacturer, you should always check out the experiences of others. Reviews online from trusted sources, such as Google, can tell you what other people experienced. If there are many complaints and problems, then you should stay away. Look for happy, satisfied customers who loved their finished result.
What Benefits Does The Manufacturer Offer?
The typical car parts reseller will offer a supply only service, leaving you stuck with the cost and hassle of fitting. A good custom car grille service will include fitting as standard. A great service like Zunsport's will even provide custom creation and fitting for 'development models', as we seek to expand our product offerings.
What's The Warranty Period?
You should also ask the seller about their warranty period. Car warranties vary according to the vehicle and manufacturer. Some custom parts will invalidate a manufacturer's warranty, especially when fitted at home. However, many customisations carried out by approved professionals, such as ours at Zunsport, are included in warranty terms.
Plus, a great manufacturer will add their own warranty protection to the new parts! This is especially important for cars with exposed radiator parts, which often exclude the grille and everything behind it.
