I get the impression from their website that they only deal with people in the motor trade but it seems that many of you guys go there too.

Do I need to set up an account with "my business" details or in practice they don't mind dealing with people not in the trade.


Thanks,

Tom

You will find they will give you 10%-15% disc as a gesture over counter sales if you have a trade account certain companies get 40% discount based on there spends so they allow big discount i usually get 40% disc without a trade account, I do have a business name and im a regular buying all sorts of i dont need and it helps if you build a bond with the sales staff on the counter than they look after you .

Trade only at Lincoln TPS as well. Misereable gits.
I called in one day, cash in hand, to order over £600 of parts, only to be told they do not deal with the general public.
Business must be good if they can afford to turn sales down.

I now order my genuine parts from HC Automotive Group in Holland , then VW stealers only as a last resort.
Also wait for sale offers at Eurocarparts for other items.

Shame we cannot have a forum account that any member can use. It will have to be a cash account/payment over the phone and the parts will have to be sent to a local TPS for collection. The same way that if your parts are not in stock, they will get sent from another branch/warehouse anyway.

Can you think the amount of parts that would go through that account. We should all get the best discount then.
I bet one of the TPS guys would go for that. Or one central number/branch that we could order from and have the parts sent to a local TPS.

I think we are missing a tick here, we all buy so much from TPS, we might as well do it from one account. I know we are not trade, but we are a large group and if we act as one it would be the largest account.

Who know anyone that works for TPS that they could put it to them?

Cracking idea .

Myself I am lucky my local branch gives me trade at the moment -fuel filter£11.68 , air £11.01 , rrp £20.87 and £20.67.

But it depends on the guy on the counter at the time .

Went in Plymouth tps for a clutch and flywheel and they turned me down flat!!
Never mind, Gsf is two doors up so I bought complete luk kit there and they give a good discount!!
The enthusiasm in tps is absolute zero anyway:confused:
