FIVA has signed a global partnership with classicparts4you, an independent, online platform providing access to high-quality historic vehicle parts, tyres and wheels on a truly international scale.
classicparts4you (or CP4Y) allows online ordering of parts from OE suppliers, industrial suppliers and smaller suppliers that have first been audited to FIVA’s criteria, to ensure the parts comply with established quality standards. The agreement between FIVA and classicparts4you was signed on 18 November 2017 and it’s planned for the site to go live just a few months from now, with its usefulness and global reach increasing over time.
“Supporting classic vehicle culture by using today’s technology is our vision,” explains Mario Zimmermann of classicparts4you. “In addition to offering access to high-quality parts, we aim to support enthusiasts by providing a means to rapidly find specialised, certified workshops and garages, as well as producers, experts and assessors. As an online platform, CP4Y can be accessed from anywhere and allows shipment of merchandise to any location worldwide. Moreover, offering services such as parts retrieval – plus virtual assembly support using modern voice and video communication – will be part of our offering.”
Adds Senior Vice President of FIVA, Dr Mario Theissen, “This ambitious and exciting project will have far-reaching benefits for a huge number of classic vehicle enthusiasts around the globe. Our key aim is to ensure that high-quality components are readily available for the widest possible range of classic cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles.”
