    Default New USA Caterham Online Parts Store

    Hello all,

    After many months of preparation and investment, we are proud to announce the first online Caterham parts store in the USA. Organized by category and vehicle system, the online store will continually grow to encompass virtually anything that is part of a Caterham Seven. In addition to factory parts, the online store will also feature upgrade parts to enhance the performance, reliability, appearance, and overall Caterham Seven ownership experience. All performance upgrade parts have been tested and proven by Beachman Racing, under racing conditions.

    We have been steadily investing in our parts inventory for some time, and will continue to do so, to better service USA owners. As a result, we have rather large and/or heavy parts in-stock and ready to ship. Examples include front/rear wings, fuel tanks, wheel axle-shafts, nosecones, windscreens (every model/finish), wheels - the list goes on. Weíve also focused on maintaining a stock of consumables (wheel bearings, brake pads/discs, wiper blades, etc), as itís always the week before the track-day, race, or weekend excursion when parts are needed most. While we continue to build-out the store, some of our parts are not yet online - so please send us an email if you canít find it, we probably have it. As a full-service online store, credit cards are accepted, and two shipping couriers are currently offered (USPS and UPS). Depending on activity and demand, we will grow the payment and courier options moving forward.

    This is an exciting next-step for Caterham support in the USA, and we hope the community embraces the utility and convenience it offers. This will allow us to further invest, to ensure that the vast majority of available parts are a click away, priced in US dollars, and immune to the unpredictability of Customs clearance.


    You can find the Beachman Racing Caterham store at www.beachmanracing.com/store. For enquiries regarding parts not yet placed in the online store, please contact us at info@beachmanracing.com

    Cheers,

    Somehow I think people missed the significance of Bruce's post.

    Big congratulations are due to Bruce and Beachman Racing here. For so long US owners have had to wait for parts to ship from the UK or order directly and pay a big international delivery fee for the privilege of getting things in a week. Or like I have done which is maintain a personal inventory of parts to guard against Caterham UK being out of stock.

    This is a big step forward to have a Caterham dealer to invest heavily in parts and run an online store here in the USA for owners. US owners have been wanting this for years.

    Well done Bruce!

    I agree Croc, kudos to Bruce. The lack of needed parts has been the biggest problem I have faced in my 10+ years of Caterham ownership. And I only wish the issue were the inconvenience of having to deal with Caterham UK and related time zone and shipping problems. But the bigger problem is they are often totally out of parts themselves and don't get them for many months. All the while my car sits on jack stands.I once had the temerity to ask how they were able to continue to build new cars if they were out of so many parts. I was told they had a separate, and adequate, parts supply for "production" purposes. Nice(:.

    I don't expect that Beachman Racing will have everything, but this increases our chances of getting mobile sooner, and with less hassle and $.

    Thanks everyone! We'll continue to add items to the store, almost on a daily basis. And as store activity and budget allows, we will continue to grow our parts inventory here. Nonetheless, even if we must go to the UK for in-stock items, batching multiple client orders together will almost always yield a shipping savings, which will be passed along.

    Cheers,
