Calling or emailing your local wrecker or parts supplier only does one thing - get you 1 price from 1 location or you get a sorry we have no parts available for your car at the moment. Then you have to repeat the process again and again and again, until you find what you are after.

You also risk purchasing from unknown, not rated or unregistered businesses.

Wreckers and parts suppliers are interested in one thing only, that’s getting you to purchase their parts. They are not interested in helping you find or purchase from their competitors why would they? This is business no one gives away money. 

If they don’t have the parts available they may try to purchase the part for you using their contacts put a big mark up on top of the price and you are now left with a huge price In front of you. 

Connect Auto Parts takes away this whole process, takes on all the effort for you with a goal of making these transactions simple and fair. That's it!

You join the Connect Auto Parts marketplace as a Seller or a Trader and nominate what makes of car you stock parts for e.g. Mazda, Toyota and Holden. 

You will now only receive requests for quote from buyers who are seeking parts in the makes you have nominated. You will have a chance to win every single quote that hits your screen.

We accept all registered part suppliers with an ABN which includes retail suppliers, wreckers and workshops selling new, used and rebuilt parts.

Please note - Your location and what time of day it is when you make your request for delivery will effect the delivery turnaround for your parts.  

No, sorry Connect Auto Parts does not fit the parts you have purchased for your car... But we hope in the future we can have a system in place.

This would mean that you can have all your questions answered and a total price In front of you start to finish.
