Scuderia open for business despite European supplier shut down in August

Share on:

Scuderia Car Parts remains committed to staying open round the clock, 365 days a year to provide you with the OE parts and tuning products you need for your luxury, performance and prestige cars. However, due to the annual Italian summer holiday shut down in August (which has now spread to most of continental European), European-based component and part supply is dramatically reduced for the duration of the month. This affects all products made on the continent of Europe, as well as deliveries worldwide due the reduction of staff at European logistics facilities.

We therefore urge you to place any specialist or custom parts orders you may have before the 10th July to prevent any delivery delays to you.

These summer holiday closures may seem odd to residents of the UK, US, Far East, or pretty much anywhere else in the world, but is a customary tradition of some European countries like Italy, France, Germany and Luxembourg. Unfortunately these countries happen to house a large majority of the component factories and many key industry suppliers are based in Europe.

We will endeavour to supply you with your orders in the quickest time possible, but please do bear in mind that you may need to allow for longer delivery times for certain products if your orders fall into the latter part of July.
