Ordering online, nice! But how does it work?
You need to be registered at Automatic Choice to be able to shop online.
Just received your login?
Great! Let’s get started. On our homepage you will find multiple search options to get to the parts you need.
Already know which transmission you are looking for, simply enter this in the search field.
This will lead you to our catalogue pages, where you can either search the part on the drawing or go to the Products Section. Here the parts are listed per Product Group.
Just click on the part to open the details of the part.
If you know our part number, the Quick Order is your friend. You can find the Quick Order Button bottom right in your screen. You can enter (part of ) the AC number here and add it to the basket if needed.
If you have a longer list of AC part numbers you want to order, the import tool can save you more time. Please read more about it below.
We will always manually check your order for you.
And if you order before 15.00 (local time) your parts can leave the same day.
Sound easy? It is!
And if you have any questions, please contact us. It is our pleasure to help you!
I only have an (OE) reference, how can I find the part I need?
That is an easy one: simply fill in the (OE) reference in the Search. Provided we have this reference in our system, it will lead you to the connecting AC part. If it does not give any result, please feel free to ask our sales team. They love to help you and find the correct part.
I would like to upload my (large) order, can I?
Yes you can! With our Import Tool you can upload your order lines straight into your shopping basket. The Import Tool is only available when you are logged in.
Click on your name on the top right and choose Order Import.
Here you can upload your Excel or CSV file into your shopping basket. Please note: the first column needs to contain valid AC part numbers and the second column the requested quantity (so 10 and not 10x)
The item I need, does not have a number on your drawing, can I order it?
If an item on the drawing does not have a number, it could mean we do not have it in our regular program.
Don’t worry, naturally it does not end here. In many cases we are able to source the requested part for you.
So please always give us a call or send us the drawing and we will do our outmost best to help you.
