Spare parts are not a thing of the past, more and more customers, including mechanics and servicing workshops are sourcing original parts for their vehicles over cheap and often universal parts. Why? There are many reasons, however the key reason is viability. A genuine part for your vehicle will perform better than an aftermarket or cheap version as it was made specifically for your vehicle, not just to fit your vehicle along with 100 other makes and models.
Whether you are a consummate professional or a hands-on car enthusiast, Perth Parts is your one stop shop for all types of reconditioned and recyclable parts across a range of makes and models.

Whether its school holidays or the weekend, one thing is for sure, the kids need entertaining. Why not give them skills that will help them in later life by showing them the basics of vehicle maintenance whilst they are still fascinated by everything. It doesn’t matter if you’re restoring an old classic or just changing the oil on the daily driver, they will love to lend a hand and you will need spare parts. Those two simple things are just facts of life. While you’re getting help with your chores, the kids will learn valuable skills for when they are older and will remember that valuable time they spent. Teach them how to care for their future vehicles, and help them learn the basics.
Maintaining your vehicle is essential in keeping it and you on the road; making knowing exactly what is being installed on your car vital. Having a mechanic provide a service for your vehicle and upgrade or update parts as part of that service may be the convenient option for most, how do you know you’re really getting what you’ve paid for? With some of the tasks able to be completed by yourself, why not do your own maintenance, so you know what kind of parts are in your car. The choice isn’t always ours to make though, sometimes the works are too laborious for our skills and at that point, a professional is best. However, when the maintenance can be done at home, the choice becomes a choice between brand new and refurbished parts.
