A guide to second hand used car parts

  Tuesday, 9 January 2018

It’s a fact of life that road vehicles go wrong.  As much as manufacturers try to design and manufacture highly reliable cars, the wear and tear from their consistent use means they can be susceptible to faults.  Worse still, accidents on the road are often unavoidable.  Sometimes you and your vehicle may be involved in a prang where another driver is at fault.

End-of-life vehicle waiting to be scrapped due to wear and tear

There comes a time in the life of any vehicle when it’s no longer safe or practical to use.  What’s more, if you continue to drive an older car that’s not roadworthy, you could incur a hefty fine and some unnecessary points on your driving licence.

For thousands of drivers that may have owned just a single vehicle for many years, they may have no idea how to actually get rid of a vehicle; simply because they’ve never had to do so before.
