Learning about used car parts for sale

When most of our vehicles break down, finding used car parts for sale is usually the first thought on our mind. This is because of their ready availability and low cost. Your local mechanic can easily find a replacement for your worn out crankshaft or finished gearbox from among the wrecks of other vehicles. However, where can you turn to when he is unable to find that part, even after checking with other garages?

New Parts

This is the dreaded final option that a car-owner is forced to consider when a search for second hand car parts is completely unsuccessful. Buying new parts is an unpleasant option for owner of a vehicle as it necessitates locating authorised dealers who, more often than not will have to order the part from overseas (especially with Asian vehicles). Few will want to endure this time-consuming process.

Another Option

The part need not be gotten from a local garage; it may be lying in some other part of UK. To find it, simply go to the Internet and conduct a specific search. Be sure to have information such as the model of your vehicle and the year of its manufacturer. Finding car parts can be easy when you know where to look. A few online sellers of second hand parts are:

  • Breakerparts.com
  • 247spares.co.uk
  • 1stchoice.co.uk
  • Autobreakers.co.uk

Many others exist and you will find them when you intensify your search.


Performance of your vehicle with used parts will be more or less as it was before the fault occurred. Unless, of course, you were sold a faulty part. The difference comes with the length of time the part will last. A new part will obviously last longer. There may also be compatibility issues as one may try to fit in a part that was from a slightly different car model so this is best avoided. Used car parts for sale can save you money in the long run.
