Who is the website for?

Our website is designed both for users looking for second-hand parts and for junkyards and professional mechanical workshops that need to buy used parts and need to save their valuable time, but without giving up on finding good discounts. We also focus on salvage yards that want to be known in the digital environment and get their services, while connecting directly with potential customers through our platform.

How does our Junk Car Search Engine work?

The purpose of this tool is to simplify the purchase and sale of junk parts and cars, helping both parties to contact each other:

  1. Users access our search engine and search for the vehicle make and model they are interested in.
  2. They review the different offers in their area.
  3. They contact the seller directly (zero intermediaries) and make their offer.

All this without intervention on our part. Our sole purpose is to put the means of communication between buyer and seller. From that first contact, both parties can agree on how to close the deal.

Likewise, users can contact directly with the junkyards in their area using our contact information to request a valuation of their used car or the parts they intend to sell.

What are the advantages of our Auto Parts Store?

Our Auto Parts Store has the largest offer in brand-new parts for cars and motorcycles, which greatly simplifies the search process when you can't find what you're looking for in a junkyard in your area. On the other hand, the store usually offers great discounts in a great variety of manufacturers and models, so the prices will not be so different from what we can obtain for an used spare from a junk yard.
