Shipping Vehicle Parts from outside the UK
We see all kinds of products pass through our distribution centre here at forward2me, from tech to trainers and fashion to furniture, but one of the things we see is all kinds of vehicle parts. Cars tend to get a lot of attention, but the UK is a great hub for all vehicle work, from major car and motorbike brands to large parts for commercial vehicles such as tractors and lorries.
With parts no longer produced or just hard to find across the rest of the world, the market of online parts websites has grown over recent years. Often, the best deal might not be through a local garage or manufacturer. If you know exactly what you need, buying your vehicle parts from the UK, may be the best option for you.
Why Ship Vehicle Parts?
Whether you’ve moved away from the UK and need a part from back home, or require a specialised part that might only be available in the UK, we can transport all kinds of vehicle parts all around the world.
The majority of parts that we ship are for expats who are restoring vintage cars, where the parts often simply aren’t made anymore, or for those who have taken a vehicle overseas and require parts that are only made in the UK.
However, this is by no means the only type of part that people use our service for. For example, parts for caravans and mobile homes can often be quite hard to come by, so you may need them shipping over from the UK.
This is also the case for larger commercial vehicles such as tractors and lorries, where the parts are only sold by very specialist retailers, making them much harder to find overseas.
No matter what your reasoning for purchasing vehicle parts online, it may simply be that you can get what you need a lot cheaper from the UK, with a great range of aftermarket and OEM parts available online at discount prices.
Recommended Vehicle Part Retailers
While we ship vehicle parts from all manner of retailers to our customers around the world (many come from marketplaces such as eBay), there are a couple of online parts retailers that we have close relationships with.
Caravan/Motor Home Parts
The perfect solution if you need to repair your caravan without a long wait for parts is to order from the UK. Often parts for specific models will be hard to come by with mechanical elements just the start.
The range over at Caravan Parts UK is monumental with a large selection of brands and parts for all purposes. Caravan Breakers also have a selection of equally broad new and used parts, ideal for most motorhomes.
Classic Car Parts
Bearingkits.co.uk are a supplier of classic car parts, with a lot of stock on hand for primarily for Fords, but also for many other vehicle brands too such as BMW and Nissan.
Many of the parts that they offer are now no longer produced even here in the UK, so they’re a good place to check for those parts which you’re really struggling to find.
Lorries & Large Commercial Vehicle Parts
For a larger vehicle that often needs to rack up the miles, the need for a part replacement can be even more urgent than most. It doesn’t help that choice can be limited and prices, highly variable depending on brand and scarcity of parts. Both AutoDoc and HGVDirect are here to meet your online lorry part needs, with everything you could possibly need, all on one site.
