HeadlightsDepot.com is family owned business operated by 21 dedicated team members. Since 1972 our family has been providing quality automotive advice and services to the wholesale side of the industry. In 2004 we started HeadlightsDepot.com to fill a growing demand for quality headlights to be available to the public at affordable prices. We started this mission by putting ourselves in your shoes and searched for replacement headlights. We called dealerships and quoted OEM (Original Equipment) headlights. We called junkyards and quoted used headlights. We searched everywhere for the very best aftermarket headlights. We discovered the industry was crowded with high prices and poor service.
To keep our prices low we sourced the very best aftermarket manufacturers of headlights. After extensive research we found a large percentage of OEM headlights from the dealership were not actually original, but aftermarket headlights made in Asia offered as OEM service parts. We were able to go direct to these types of aftermarket manufacturers of headlights overseas and purchase headlights of equivalent or higher quality at a fraction of the cost. We also kept in mind that our customers were paying for their headlights out of their own pockets and a big insurance company was not on the other end of the bill, so we keep costs down so we can offer minimal markups and accept very low margins without sacrificing service.
To offer better service we made the decision to specialize and offer only headlights. We believe it's better to be the best at one thing than to try and be good at many things. You'll notice our competition offers thousands of different kinds of products, most auto parts companies do. We're different, when it comes to headlights nobody can offer the kind of service that we can because this is the only thing we do. Our dedicated Customer Service team members are experts on headlights because it's the only product we offer. Our service starts with our fast response to pre-sale questions about your headlights. Our service follows with shipping your headlights quickly in the proper packaging so they arrive safe. Most important, we stand behind our headlights after the sale so you can feel confident about your purchase of headlights from start to finish.
So who are we? We're a Father and Sons team that's at the office and in the warehouse every day, guaranteed. We're a team of 21 headlight experts dedicated and ready to serve. We're on a mission to provide the most competitive prices in the market. We're a specialized company that's confident our service is better!
