HOW TO PLACE AN ORDER

Call or Email Us:
To place an order call 1-888-RIKS-VET (1-888-745-7838) or e-mail to riksvet@riksvet.com. PLEASE have your order ready including quantity, part number, and description. Please remember, the toll-free order line is for placing orders only. If you have any technical questions about a part, or need to check about an order already placed you need to call Customer Service at 828-433-6506.
 
Phone orders are taken Monday-Thurs 8:30am-5pm (CLOSED FRIDAY-SATURDAY-SUNDAY). If we are closed you may leave your order or message on our voice mail. We do prefer that you call us during our business hours so we can personally take your order. You can also email us after hours or on the weekend with orders or questions.
 
Place your order on-line through our secured catalog: 
After you choose the parts you want through the shopping cart, you will be asked to fill out all your information (name, address, etc.) plus you will be asked questions about your Corvette (year model, transmission type, interior color, etc.) Please be sure to fill out the form completely & include your e-mail address, and telephone number in case there is a question about your order. If you have ordered a part such as an interior item that requires a color choice, we will go by the information on your vehicle information field to determine the color.
 
ORDERING TIPS & SUGGESTIONS:
When you are planning your parts order, please PLAN AHEAD as much as possible. Don't wait until the last minute to order something you need. Occasionally parts may be out of stock or on a factory back order causing a delay in processing your order. Planning ahead will help you and Rik's both keep your project on schedule.
 
SHIPPING:
Shipping charges will be added to the price of the parts order. 
We try to ship orders the most economical way possible, but not sacrifice service. We ship most small to medium sized orders through the postal service using Priority Mail. We will compare Priority Mail vs UPS ground charges to see what works best. If you prefer one way or the other, please let us know. Larger packages are charged by the size of the box, not just the weight, so can cost more. However, if you need it by a specific day, it may be best to ship UPS.
If you need exact shipping charges, please call or e-mail us after you place your order and receive your order confirmation via e-mail. We will need your order number.
Parts too large to ship UPS will be shipped by truck. Truck shipment does not fall under the 10% shipping charge fee.
 
ALL PAINT & DYE MUST SHIP BY UPS (which usually costs more than the postal service)
 

If you wish to prepay an order, please call for approximate shipping charges or include shipping according to chart below:
  ESTIMATED SHIPPING CHARGES (Inside U.S. Only)
We will charge you the appropriate shipping when your order is shipped. Shipping charges depend on the size, weight & value of the package, along with how far it has to travel. We are on the East Coast, so shipping to the Midwest & West Coast will be higher than East Coast shipping. The minimum we charge is $11.95, but if the package is large, or UPS charges extra to ship to your zip code, the shipping will be higher than the minimum. If we can ship your order by Priority Mail, the shipping may be a little less, depending on the weight & how far it has to travel. This chart below is just to get an idea of the shipping charges: 
 
THIS IS AN ESTIMATE ONLY!! RATES CAN VARY DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT OF THE PACKAGE, THE SIZE OF THE PACKAGE, THE NUMBER OF PACKAGES IN THE ORDER, AND HOW FAR THE PACKAGE(S) HAVE TO TRAVEL:
$1-$110 add $11.95 (Mid-West & West Coast Minimum is $12.95)
$111-$399 add 10%
$400-$699 add 8%
$700 & Up add 7%
UPS Charges more for medium to large boxes, even if they do not weigh much. Shipping can vary on all parts.
(MIDWEST, WEST COAST & REMOTE AREAS MAY BE HIGHER)
*Applies to shipments inside the continental US Only. PR, AK, Hl & Foreign Extra. 
 
Shipping insurance is also added to all shipments, usually $1.00 additional per $100 of parts. This ensures that if the package is lost or damaged during transit, you will receive a replacement.
 
Minimum shipping to most of the country is $11.95, Midwest & West Coast minimum is $12.95, except for items which must be shipped by truck. 
Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico & foreign orders please call or add at least 20% shipping. 
 
COD SHIPMENTS:
We prefer credit cards, but UPS/COD shipping is available for an additional cost. COD Fee is $14.00 PLUS shipping. Only a money order or cashier's check can be accepted as COD payment (No Cash or Checks accepted). You MUST be home when UPS delivers and have your money order ready. If someone is usually not home during the day, please do not ask us to ship COD. We do not send COD outside the continental US. No COD’s over $500.
 
CATALOGS ARE MAILED AT NO CHARGE WITHIN THE U.S.
 
PAYMENT
We accept Master Card, Visa, Discover & American Express. Please give us the name on the card, card number, expiration date and security code. We can only ship to the credit card's billing address unless other arrangements have been made.
 
Cash, money order, credit cards, or personal check will be accepted on prepaid orders; however, allow 2 weeks for personal checks to clear.
 
There will be a $25 fee for any check returned from the bank unpaid. 
 
MINIMUM ORDER
There is not really a minimum order required, however, due to the high cost of handling, there will be a small order handling the charge of $2.00 for any parts order under $20.00, IN ADDITION to shipping. It can be expensive to ship small orders ($10.95-$12.95 minimum), so it is best to order as much at one time as you can to help pay for the shipping! Shipping to Mid West, West Coast & remote areas requires higher shipping costs. 
 
RECEIVING ORDERS:
When you receive your order, be sure to inspect the package and its contents thoroughly, even if you won't be installing them on your car for some time. If there are any damages or shortages you must report them to us within 15 days of the invoice date to receive proper credit. After that period of time, we cannot help you.

IN-STORE PICKUP:
  You are welcome to come by our store to pick up your parts. We do ask that you call ahead to make sure we have the parts in stock that you would like to pick up, and to make sure our store is open (please see our "Business Hours" button for closing dates and store hours). Please use our catalog and have a list ready to save us both some time, and if you can, please give us the list a few days ahead of time so we can have your parts set aside. 
  Due to increased shipping costs, we must now charge a partial shipping fee on some large parts picked up at our store. This charge to you is only about half or less than half of our freight cost. Most parts we advertise are priced for internet sales, and these parts are normally drop shipped to our customer from the manufacturer's warehouse, therefore saving us additional shipping costs. But if the part is picked up at our store, we usually have $10-$45 more in shipping fees to us. This will still be cheaper than having the large item shipped to you from another retailer. Most of the parts we sell can be shipped to us in bulk, so we can usually cover the costs. But some parts, like those listed below, have to be shipped in separate boxes, costing us high fees on each box. We like to offer the convenience of in-store pickup to our customers, because it saves them time, gives them a chance to see the part before they buy it, and gives us a chance to meet our customers. This way, the customer still gets to pick up his part, and still, saves full shipping costs.
 
Most times the Pick-Up Charge is about $10-$20 per large item. Parts include, but are not limited to:

  • Seat Foam
  • Wheels (each)
  • Rocker Panels
  • Headliners
  • Trailing Arm Assys
  • Mounted Seats
  • Exhaust
  • Gas Tanks
  • Fiberglass Spoilers

  • Brake Line Kits
  • Radiator Supports
  • Frt End Kits, etc.
  • 78-82 Dash Pads or Caps
  • Rear Compartment Unit Glass
  • T-Tops
  • Fan Shrouds

For parts we do not stock, special orders and truck shipments, full shipping charges will apply (such as fiberglass fenders, front ends, wiring, exhaust kits, and parts listed as Drop Ship or Special Order, etc.)
 If you have any questions about a part you would like to pick up, please call us.
Thank you for your understanding!
