Ford adds 57 parts to Truckload Program
May 1, 2012—Ford Motor Company’s Customer Service Division has added 57 new parts to its Collision Parts Truckload Program with an average overall list price reduction of nearly 12 percent.
Ford’s Collision Parts Truckload Program covers more than 460 replacement part types, including bumper fascias, steel bumpers, bumper bars, exterior lighting, mirrors, radiators, wheels, header panels, grilles, GORs and GOPs, isolators, impact pads, shafts and valances.
The 57 parts added to Ford’s Collision Parts Truckload Program, which is in its 15th year of operation, include 16 exterior lights, 10 mirrors, nine GORs and GOPs, seven fascias, six isolators, six steel bumpers, two radiators and one wheel.
Ford said that offering its Ford and Lincoln wholesaling dealers competitive prices on bulk purchases of high-volume collision parts through the Collision Parts Truckload Program allows them to compete more effectively against non-OEM copy parts and other parts specified by insurance customers.
“This allows for a win-win-win situation for insurance companies, body shops and consumers,” Ford said.
“We’re continually evaluating programs to keep the most in-demand parts competitive,” said George Gilbert, Truckload Program manager for Ford’s Customer Service Division. “With over 460 high-demand parts currently available on the program, repairers and insurers can offer our customers—Ford vehicle owners—the genuine replacement parts they want and expect at competitive prices.”
