About Scooterpartsco.com

First and foremost, Scooterpartsco.com is run by enthusiasts. We are active Scooterists who ride almost every day.
Scooterpartsco.com started over a Vespa Starter Motor. We run a very busy scooter repair shop and when the local Vespa dealer packed it in, we started getting most of the Vespa service. The first time we priced out a starter for an ET4, and then realized it is the same part that was used on a lot of Japanese bikes and is about half the price from them, we decided to figure out why Vespa parts are so expensive in the US. 
As luck would have it, a Vespa dealer from Italy was vacationing in Charleston and stopped in our store to talk shop. We soon figured out that US prices are about double what they are in Italy. Piaggio is one of the largest scooter companies in the world, and there is no way the world is paying that much for parts. It's like finding out that in Germany you can buy a Mercedes with a cloth interior and roll down windows (which you can). 
So we made a deal to buy direct from that dealer and found out another thing. Parts are almost always in stock in Italy.  By importing parts, and maintaining reasonable margins, we can offer OEM Piaggio and Vespa parts for a lot less than your local Vespa dealer. In some cases, our prices are less than your local dealer pays for the same part. And if something's on backorder in the US, the odds are that we can get it quicker too. Now, we also purchase parts from two of the biggest aftermarket suppliers in Italy, companies that make OEM parts for Piaggio. The parts on our website are IN STOCK, unless labelled otherwise.
Good, Fast, Cheap, pick two. This is one of the mottoes we used in figuring out how to operate. We have a full time business selling, renting and repairing scooters, and had to fit Scooterpartsco.com into the picture. So we decided to go with Good and Cheap. We fill orders around our regular business, and hope you appreciate that this is the only way we can offer these prices. We also might have a shop full of customers when you call, so if we seem like we are trying to get you off the phone, we are.  We do not process Scooterpartsco.com orders over the phone. It all has to go through our website. 
If you need something that is not on our website, call or email. If you have the Piaggio part number, we can usually have an answer back in less than a day after receiving your email.
 
Thank you for your business,

Scooter Parts Company LLC
