Quality is extremely important with any product or service and as we forge deeper into the new millennium and with it increasing competition, for any company to succeed, quality offerings are paramount.
Tuff Car Parts (TCP) is not a manufacturer, rather we deal exclusively with third party products and are therefore effectively at the mercy of our suppliers when it comes to quality, reliability and longevity. We accept that most of our suppliers attempt to produce the best quality most viable products available, and we also expect these companies to have employed both quality control and quality assurance processes into their manufacturing base.
However, having a 100% reliance on others to supply consistent quality brings with it a possibility of failure. Therefore for us to further the cause of what we believe is a uniquely driven aftermarket parts supply business, at TCP we undertake to inspect each and every third party supplied part prior to it being shipped to our loyal customers. It’s not that we don’t trust suppliers, rather it’s a case of us wanting to do our best to ensure our customers receive the best available product; each and every time.
Tuff Car Parts is dedicated to maintaining the best possible customer relationship. With each and every step we take, we look to better ourselves, we will offer only the best in proven products, and will go the extra metre to ensure customer satisfaction.
