    Question on Vespa parts

     Has any one dealt with Vespa Spares . co.uk ?,i purchased some parts about 3 weeks ago via their online shopping facility, my question is how long would it normally take for parts to arrive in Australia from England via the post?,not having dealt with them before i don't know what the average time would be,hoping that maybe one of my fellow scooter dudes has some previous experience and can give me an opinion on the transport time?.

    Hi Bradr

    I often import quantities of parts from PM tuning in England and have waited generally no longer than 2 weeks, however they usualy come via a freight company as opposed to general post so this end I would expect three to four weeks would be the norm depending on size of the shipment. not sure what you are chasing but the guys at PM are awesome, they deal mainly in performance stuff but with the exchange rate at the moment it is happy days.

    regards Linc B

     Ah ,so your'e thinking 3 to 4 weeks via the post,i won't panic at this stage then,the stuff i ordered is just service parts for my GTS,was heaps cheaper than Australia even with what i think is enourmous postage costs it still worked out a very good deal,i guess because of the exchange rates

    Hi Brad

    I have purchased a lot of scooter parts from the UK mainly via allstyles scooters great to deal with online and normally takes 2 weeks by registered mail which is a little quicker than normal postal channels as I have waited up to 3 weeks...plus they are all snowed in at the moment.

    cheers Mike

    I usually use Beedspeed in the UK; stuff from them via the normal postal system takes generally around a fortnight under normal circumstances. But yes, I reckon the heavy snows they're getting could slow things up a bit!

     Bad weather & Christmas rush could slow things down but generally 2 to 6 weeks time frame for UK posted stuff

     Yes,i have on many occasions used GPS Imports who are actually in Melbourne, but i tried to buy my usual belt , rollers & oil filters which i,ve always got from them but they reckon they were out of stock on belts,couldn't really tell me if/when they had more coming and were just plain unhelpfull & decidedly uninterested which i had never experienced previously.I don't know but maybe they have some staff issues or something,so i looked around the net and found vespaspares uk who had all the bits at a very good price even with the heavy postage costs, all parts are genuine Vespa,the belt is about 1/2 the Aust cost,but its going to be an interesting journey i think,i ordered 11th nov and they said all ok,today i checked on progress and was told that 1 item is on backorder from Italy,they didn't contact me and tell me,i had to contact them and do my own detective work,so at the moment i'm not impressed with their customer service or rather lack of!.If anyone is thinking of buying from Vespaspares uk,better hold off till my bits finally turn up,i'll report on this later, but probably next time i'll go with Scooterwest or SIP or the likeSad

    ps--at least i'm not desperately  waiting on the parts,still got a couple of months or so till service is due

    You do pay for the quicker delivery, though, Jim - it's DHL I think with SIP. Normal postage does take longer!

    Re: Question on Vespa parts

     I've just had the same experience, Scooterwest 3 days, GPS a month and I ordered the same day, the attitude I got was more like too bloody busy for the small stuff, but still helpful. Not happy with the wait though.

    Wow, 3 days,looks like it will be Scooterwest next time round,its a real pity with GPS because they had always been so good in the past,as i said previously i think it would be staff issues,hopefully they'll sort it soon

     I think all the moons aligned that day but I would've been happy with a week...

    I hope so, They have been better in the past in my experience. mind you they didn't have some of the things I wanted and pretty much insisted that it was no problem getting them in, it still would've been quicker and cheaper to do it myself.
