MQVP is short for Manufacture Quality Vehicle Parts. They are actually OEM(Original Equipment Manufacture) parts sold in special deals to the dealers and at a bargain price sometime less than after market parts. You bad mouthed insurance companies like most people do that don't have a clue. Not being smart just realistic, what if it was you hit the other guy and managed to really hurt someone or worse yet killed them. do you think you would have the resources to pay the $35,000 for the Life Flight? What about the $190,000 for the emergency room and hospital? What about the $10,000 for the funeral? What about restitution? Think before you speak. There are insurance companies out there that only give a hoot about the cost of the repair and how cheaply they can get it done. Did you know that After Market parts (like the oil and air filter you use and probably the bug shield, window guards, tonneau cover side rails and on and on) in the auto body industry carry a life time guarantee and have to pass more stringent tests than the manufactures OEM parts? I know what your answer is, "no I didn't". If you are able to use your computer, use it and do some research. You are paying for someone else to handle your problems if you ever need them like life insurance (only pays when you die so what good is it). By the way, if the tailgate doesn't fit properly you can request the shop replace it. Be careful though, I have gotten many OEM parts that fit worse than the aftermarket one.

Thank you for your message.
How can I be of service? are you looking for parts to purchase for your vehicle?
please see www.mqvp.com for a list of participating MQVP approved distributors. I may be able to help you locate a site near you to purchase these approved parts. However, your insurance company must also be an approved participant.

I know alot about MQVP. They certify aftermarket parts ONLY for Nationwise Insurance. There products are mostly from Taiwan. Almost all of the parts sold by MQVP and CAPA, are distributed through the aftermarket by two companies called Keystone and Action Crash, who then sell them directly to body shops. For what its worth CAPA has been accepted by body shops more readily than MWVP.
Some background on insurance companies. Almost ALL insurance companies SELL and MUST sell aftermarket parts to remain competitive. The major insurance company that does NOT sell aftermarket is State Farm due to a class action lawsuit filed against them. I believe they are currently pursuing an avenue like CAPA part certification to start selling aftermarket parts again. Take it to the bank; since the State Farm class action lawsuit ALL insurance companies are placing HUGE requirements on aftermarket part manufacturers to have evidence of OE compliance that is so stringent OE would probably fail these tests. One thing thatwill drive aftermarket parts to higher and higher quality levels is the fact that the OE's do not have any enforcement of there replacement parts like the aftermarket manufacturers do. They can pretty much sell what they want to because their customers are themselves.
As far as finding out who the manufacturers are for MQVP or CAPA parts is almost fruitless; they are in Taiwan and their names are meaningless to determine who made the part. Example; xyz comapny makes your tailgate. they then sell it to man/distributors ABC, ACME, and Fred Parts Inc.
You could then buy 4 parts from 4 different companies and actually they are all from the same run from the same manufacturer. Common Taiwan practice. Also there is the exact opposite example where all 4 have there own product. So with this in mind you can see why it is impossible to determine who makes what.
Get used to aftermarket parts because there will be more and more a/market parts bein gforced on body shops by the insurance comapnies. Rest easy though because the quality is much improved from the past and in many cases betterthan OE.

aftermarket man, i just left you a private message, this site was kind of odd, so not sure if you will get it or not.
how do you know so much about this mqvp company? i searched their website and did not find any of this information you spoke of. are you a body shop or parts distributor?
i had some problems with some parts and my insurance company and im researching my options (potentially legal).
