Buying car part spares and motorcycle parts from the UK


If you’re from the UK and have moved abroad, taking your car with you, you might find it difficult to get hold of certain car parts in your new home country. Even if you have never lived in the UK, it may be that you want to purchase parts from UK retailers – perhaps because they can offer a more specialist selection - and have them shipped to your address.

forward2me regularly receive car parts of all shapes and sizes into our distribution centre for sending on around the world. The most popular car brands we see customers purchase include BMW, MINI, Ford and Mercedes and we’ve shipped everything from filters right through to large items such as wagon axles! 

Although auction sites such as eBay are a good place to start, there are also some more specialist retailers out there. Here we look at some of the best the UK has to offer…
