What our clients say

Webby, M

Ordered a bulkhead off these guys Wednesday morning arrived Thursday morning absolutely delighted with the price and service.


Fast, friendly and efficient breakers. Even though this was my first visit to a breakers yard, they quickly sorted me out the right part at 80% less than the official dealership, no waiting for parcels, gave great fitting advice and local tips. A top find! Recommended.


The service twonderfully helpful. I needed a differential for my Mercedes Vito van. I posted my query on this site. I got reasonable quotes from different suppliers. I have brought one with a decent price. So I highly recommend this site. I am really satisfied with their quick response
