The 4 Best Places to Look for Used Car Parts Online

January 27, 2012

Many mechanics buy car parts online, and many stock and aftermarket parts can be purchased from a car parts online store. Used car parts are one of the best ways to save money on car repair bills, as in many cases the parts are considerably less expensive than purchasing new or factory direct ones. Used auto parts are available for nearly any vehicle on the road today (and even some that are not), and are no longer simply sold by the junkyard down the road. If you're interested in locating used auto parts online, a few places are better to look than others.

  • eBay Motors. eBay is one of the largest online marketplaces. It provides a full time living for a number of entrepreneurs. However, a great many brick and mortar businesses also make part of their sales online via eBay. eBay Motors allows individuals and businesses to buy and sell used and brand new autos and parts. This is a great place to begin your search for that particular used auto part you're looking for. You can not only usually locate the part, but you can shop around for the best price right on the site as well
  • Car-part.com. Car-part.com is a leading worldwide distributor of used car parts. Similar to eBay in its scope and size, Car-part.com is a great way to find a myriad of used auto parts online. A nice feature about this site is the fact that not only can you search by car type, make and model, but you can also search simply by an image of the part. This is a great feature if you are not overly mechanically minded and work better visually
  • Uneedapart.com. Uneedapart.com is a used parts locating service, so while they don't stock anything, they have 7,000 suppliers who do stock used and aftermarket auto parts. Searching their website is easy and once you have located the part, you simply place an order and wait for it to arrive
  • Local businesses. Often you can order the part from the website of a local parts store. You can take advantage of online specials and discounts, and be able to pick the part up at the local store, so you save on shipping
