How It Works

What's all this then?

CarSpareFinder is a spare vehicle part location service that puts you in control. Unlike many other similar services CarSpareFinder acts as a medium between you and the part suppliers. The part suppliers make quotes for the parts you require and we update these live on screen for you, this allows you to choose which suppliers you wish to deal with.

How do I get the Quotes Without Becoming A Member?

You action a quick quote that asks for the minimum amount of information to give you a quote. You will be then directed to your quote screen, where responses to your quote will be shown. However as you have opted not to become a member, we have no information about you, so you will need to revisit you part request screen for all updates, either by saving the URL as a favorite in your browser or recovering the url from the initial email we sent you

How do I get the Quotes As A Member?

Becoming a member gives lots of benefits such as being able to retreav new and quotes easier. There is no need to re- enter address details into every quote. There is a communication system that allows you to communicate with the breakers. We never give or sell any of of your personal information to anyone, without exception!

Am I obliged to purchase if I make a request?

No, absolutely not. When you receive quotes its completely up to you to contact any supplier you wish to make a purchase, or not.

How much does it cost?

It is totally free to action online parts requests. If you choose to contact us via phone, there is a charge associated with this service which is clearly marked on our home page

Will other companies use my telephone number?

No. If you enter a home telephone number we do pass that information to our suppliers so they may contact you should they quote on your part request but no other company will receive your mobile phone number of email address.

How do I stop receiving Quotes via SMS?

We no longer use SMS

How do I make a Part Request?

As many as you like. When you make a request you can choose up to 5 different parts, each part selected will generate a separate part request.
