1st Choice – Finding used spares since 1991
Formed in 1991, 1st Choice is one of the original car parts location services and in all this time has been a leading force in the modern vehicle dismantling industry and used car parts location.
Always an innovator, from originally providing a telephone service to persons looking for car parts and spares and faxing them at intervals throughout the day to car breakers across the county, 1st Choice has always been the 1st to take advantage of new technology to help motorists save money on car parts.
We were the 1st to see and send car parts requests by fax machines, way back in 1991. We then invested in Data Broadcast Decoders and broadcast car parts requests via the TV television network, which were printed “Live” at the breakers yards on small tele-printers all over the country. With the advent of the internet, we were the 1st car parts location service to introduce a car part finder web site. In fact we have one of the oldest registered car parts web sites in the UK, way back in the mid 90’s! More importantly, we saw the advantage of Two Way communication offered by the internet and were again 1st to provide an interface for Dismantlers, allowing them to not only read details of car parts wanted but also respond and send personal quotes for car parts directly back to you via email and sms.
We’re now offering instant quotes, from breakers live stock systems and you can order by phone or online. You can still call our depots to check details but always order via our site but we would always advise NEVER paying for goods by bank transfer.
There are now many similar copycat car parts services on the web, some old and many new, however even though this may be considered a compliment, none offer the experience or the expertise we have gathered over the past 25+ years, which now sees regularly over 4000 people every day using 1st Choice Spares to locate quality car parts.
