HeadlightsDepot.com is a family owned business operated by a small, dedicated team. Our family has been providing quality automotive advice and services to the wholesale side of the industry since the 70s, and in 2002 we started HeadlightsDepot.com to fill a growing demand by the public for quality headlights at affordable prices. We started this mission by putting ourselves in your shoes and searched for replacement headlights. We spoke to dealerships and quoted OEM headlights. We called junkyards and quoted used headlights. We searched everywhere for the very best aftermarket headlights. What we discovered was that the industry was crowded with inconsistent prices and even more inconsistent service.
We decided to fix this.
First, we figured out how to keep our prices low. After extensive research, we found that a large percentage of headlights sold as "OEM" by dealership were not actually original to the manufacturer, but aftermarket headlights made in Asia and sold as OEM service parts. We were able to go directly to aftermarket manufacturers of headlights overseas and purchase higher quality headlights than most offered at a dealership at a fraction of the cost.
We also kept in mind that our customers were often paying for their headlights out of their own pockets, without a big insurance company footing the bill. Because of that, we worked to keep our costs down so we could offer minimal markups and accept very low margins without sacrificing the quality of service.
We believe that it is better to be the best at one thing than simply good at many things, so, instead of offering thousands of different kinds of products like our competitors do, we sell only headlights. This allows our customer support team to develop an unmatched level of expertise. This means that we are able to help you at every stage of your purchase, from a fast response to pre-sale questions all the way to installation and on to upkeep and maintenance for years after. Most importantly, we stand behind our headlights after the sale so you can feel confident about your purchase from start to finish.
So who are we?
