Is your car or truck starting to show signs of parts failing? Need to find a cost-effective solution to your spare parts needs? Look no further than the extensive range of parts and panels at Perth Parts.


As a late model parts specialists we wholeheartedly believe that salvaged does not mean junk, and our parts show how much we care about providing superior parts to you at a fraction of the cost of new.

Wrecks of both cars and trucks are a gold mine for recyclable parts. Often a vehicle will come to us with parts that are almost new, untouched and certainly not worn, but because they are on a vehicle otherwise unable to be driven again, they are often discarded. Not here at Perth Parts. We take a wreck, be it a Mitsubishi, Volkswagen or Jeep, and we take special care to remove as many salvageable parts as possible. We restore parts that require a little work, and make sure everything else is recycled as much as possible. Environmentally conscious is the team at Perth Parts, and we believe the more we can salvage from a wreck the less impact we are having on the environment. We don’t like seeing quality engine or vehicle components ending up on the junk heap.

Recycled, reconditioned, salvaged, no matter what you call it, spare parts are a growing trend across the automotive industry, especially in makes and models that aren’t as popular anymore or may not even be produced as frequently as they once were. Salvaged parts offer competition to the brand new parts which can blow out the budget for your next service. We don’t just recycle engine parts though, we look to recycle, recondition and reuse as much of a wrecked vehicle as possible; this includes panels, glass and doors. We also take whole engines and transmissions out of vehicles with severe damage and recondition them as a cheaper alternative for our clients.

Our experienced team, takes each part, reconditions it where required and keeps the part in tip top shape until sale.

When we say “A-Grade” or “insurance quality” we refer to the panel or part being above average condition or like new. When we buy a written-off vehicle we don’t just pay for anything. As it is an investment and a source of income we must ensure that the vehicle that we are buying has been well maintained in the past, the parts are fit for purpose and the price is right so that we can keep our prices competitive. At Perth Parts the engines and transmissions that we sell are low kilometres, been ran and tested and we generally know the full service history.

We provide warranties on our parts as well, for your peace of mind. We are also an online business, so if you aren’t in the Perth metro area, but we have a part you need, we can ship it to you. We are opening channels to both consumers and mechanical professionals alike. What we don’t have, we are happy to source from our trusted partner network of wreckers who have the same commitment to quality control as our team at Perth Parts does.

So next time you put your car in for a service, or repair, talk to your mechanic about their access to salvaged parts over brand new, where practical. For example, we don’t salvage spark plugs, these types of parts have a shelf life, and you cannot restore or refresh them. A 2006 Nissan Patrol wiper motor however, we have you covered for that and so much more. See, you can find all sorts of parts at Perth Parts, and salvaged doesn’t mean junk, it just means you’re reducing your impact on the environment whilst helping your hip pocket.
