International Shipping
Do you ship to my country & what about import taxes & duties?
  Yes, most likely we do ship to your country. Please create an account by clicking the "My Account / Order Status" link at the top right hand side of our site. During sign-up we'll asked for your shipping address details including country. If your country is not in the dropdown menu of available countries, unfortunately we cannot ship to your country at this time.

Your country may charge import taxes and duties, please check with your local customs agent or with the FedEx, UPS or DHL office in your area for more information. All import taxes and duties are NOT INCLUDED in the pricing, and you will be responsible for these extra charges when your order arrives. All international orders will be charged in U.S. dollars and your Credit Card company will convert these charges to your local currency.
Does ship orders to the U.K.?

Yes, we ship orders daily to the U.K. We have negotiated very good shipping rates and can provide our U.K. customers with a very inexpensive alternative to purchasing your Classic VW parts & accessories locally. We have seen that spare VW parts can cost more then double the price that charges, and even with the added cost of shipping, we can save our U.K. customer approximately 25-35% compared to buying VW parts in the U.K. To find the exactly cost of ordering VW parts to the U.K., including the exact shipping costs, all you need to do is sign-in as a customer on, and our system will calculate the the correct shipping cost for your order. Please remember that shipping costs are calculated on the weight of the order, so heavier items such as bumpers, Piston & cylinder kits, Front axle beams and engines etc. will cost much more then lighter items like seals, seat cover sets, carpet kits and electrical parts. Prices DO NOT include taxes or duties, you will be responsible for any extra taxes (VAT) and duties when your order arrives.

What are my payment choices?
  During the checkout process you may choose any of our current payment options and continue to place your order. Please note that we will not ship your order until we receive payment from you.
I am ordering from Canada, will I pay extra Duties or Taxes?

Many Canadian customers do not know that / California Import Parts LTD. has a warehouse in Langley, BC. We have been doing business in British Columbia, Canada for over 50 years. Since our warehouse is in Canada, you never have to pay extra import duties / taxes, you only have to pay the GST or HST. As well, our FREE shipping offers apply to all qualifing Canadian orders.

We now have a site strictly dedicated to Canadians. Go to to place your Canadian order.

We also, will no longer be printing catalogs, as the last one we printed was out of date within 2 months of printing and was money just wasted. I am certain all of our customers would rather have lower prices on parts that an out-of-date print catalog. Anyway, this website always has the most up to date selection and pricing we offer. Save a tree, use our web site.

When will my order ship and what are my shipping charges?
  International shipping is automatically calculated prior to submitting your payment information. We only ship International orders by DHL, UPS or Fed-ex air. Why? Because from our experience, we have found that most orders shipped by any other method NEVER get to our customers. For to offer a reliable service, we must insist that we ship ALL overseas shipments be shipped by UPS or Fed-Ex AIR. No exception will be made! We will ship your order shortly after we receive payment from you and verified your credit card information. All oversea orders are subject to stringent fraud prevention checks. This may take 2-3 business days before we can finalize your order. Please allow this additional time to complete your transaction.

International Shipping rates
Our website offers several shipping options and calculates the shipping cost for each order based on the weight. This rate is calculated on the ZIP code, State or Country contained in your shipping address. All International orders are air shipments,  if your order contains many OVERSIZED or HEAVY items such as Bumpers, Fenders, large sheet metal or heavy engine parts, we may need to adjust the shipping charges. We will not ship any order which needs a shipping cost adjustment WITHOUT contacting the customer for confirmation first. We do reserve the right to CANCEL any order and return the customers payment if we cannot come to an agreement on extra shipping costs.
