A lot cheaper than buying new (obviously) but one or two of the items look as if they've been rolling around in the mud for a while before sending them to me. Generally, a very good experience. I've used these companies on quite a few occasions and saved a fortune.
I was in need of two new wheels for my BMW and was recommended to use Parts Gateway. Complete a simple enquiry form and emailed to me were over 10 possible suppliers. Will definitely use this service again.
Parts Gateway were able to locate a clip for a Clio headlight for £18 within a few minutes of my request. These are not available to purchase as a spare part from a dealer. The alternative would have been to have a new headlight fitted at over £200.
A problem occurred with the ability to open the boot on my wife's Ford KA. On the web I found Parts Gateway and its guarantee of rapid location of any needed part. The firm found several relevant companies selling quality second hand parts, and one of these was able to locate and send me exactly the part I needed, next day and at a reasonable price.
Parts gateway makes life easy when searching for second hand (green) parts. Quotes come back almost immediately sometimes although it is always worth while waiting for all suppliers to respond as the last one can be the best. I always phone and ask for an image of the part to be sent to me so that I can get some idea of the condition. I work for a bodyshop and I have been supplied panels that are unusable, (minor repairs are expected). If I am not satisfied with the part it can be a lot of hard work getting your money back and on several occasions I have lost out. This also gives me an idea of the quality of service of the supplier as some respond quickly and some do not respond at all. To sum up, the parts gateway is a very useful tool but once used for part searches communication with suppliers I feel is very important to ensure you receive a good level of service.
Very simple easy to use site clearly setting out suppliers/costs. Supplier responded quickly with next day delivery package was wrapped well and fitted easily. ver y happy with service and will use again.
After ordering, i recieved the exact part i requested, even down to the exact colour. It was a rare, hard to find piece of internal trim. it arrived in perfect condition. On the phone they also gave good advice, service & advice.
