When buying electronic parts, there are many factors to consider. It’s important to be able to find the aviation components you need without unnecessarily overpaying, and to be sure you are purchasing the right product.
The first step is to search the market for pricing, availability, and lead times if the product is out of stock. The most efficient way to do this is to use aggregator websites. Here, potential customers can see distributors’ listings and compare prices and availability all on the same site. It’s much more efficient to use these types of sites rather than Google, because you can find many electronic parts distributors who stock the part without going back and forth between the multiple sites Google generates. Not to mention, Google search results are not always reflective of popularity or relevance thanks to features such as Google Ads.
It’s better to reach out to smaller distributors rather than large-scale distributors. Larger organizations sound appealing because they will almost always have stock for the part and be able to deliver quickly. However, this usually means they can charge higher premiums for their services. Smaller authorized distributors will also carry stock and provide same-day shipping. Also, they tend to have lower prices. Speaking to a sales representative over the phone and forming a connection may even help bring the cost of parts down.
You will want to make sure, when you’re ready to purchase, that you are buying from an authorized distributor, regardless of whether they are large- or small-scale. The additional step of requesting certification for the part in question is a good idea for product verification and quality assurance. Although non-authorized distributors may have stock when authorized distributors do not, they may not be able to provide certifications without an added cost. Ultimately, the safest bet is to buy straight from the manufacturer or from their list of authorized distributors.
