Car parts - the smart way to shop
Save time and money by using 1st Choice Spares to locate the car parts you need. Our specialist FREE service has been developed over 25 years in the industry and we work with over 200 car breakers to offer what we consider to be the best service in the UK.
Car parts for every car
We don’t specialise in car parts for a particular brand of car. Instead, we can offer car parts for any type of car, including 4x4 and van spares. That’s because we’re in contact with such a large number of car breakers. Whilst we can’t guarantee that we can find the car parts you’re looking for, we know that you have a better chance on our website than just about anywhere else. We’re confident that not only will you find the car parts you need, but that you’ll find them from more than one breaker, giving you real choice and value for money.
Car parts without the hassle
Remember the days of searching scrap yards and poring over the pages of auto magazines in order to find the car parts you wanted? Your car could be sitting outside your home for days whilst you tried to locate the right part at the right price. The internet has changed how we shop, and the car parts industry is no exception. We started our business matching vehicle owners and car parts by phone, and we were one of the first to develop the online model that many use today. Finding car parts through 1st Choice Spares couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is:
- Type in your registration number
- Type in the car parts you’re looking for
- Give us the contact details you’re happy for us to pass on to dealers
Click on the make of your car
Click on the part you require
Refine your search

Your Parts Search is checked with over 200 "Star Rated" depots across the UK. Those with your parts in stock offer quotes within minutes, which you can view online. We’ll also Email them to you to you, as and when they arrive. Plus some suppliers may phone you direct for larger items.
If no quotes are received within a few minutes, we'll send you a free text to let you know as soon as quotes do start to arrive, so you don't have to sit and wait by you PC and once you’ve received quotes from a number of dealers, you can choose the car parts and prices that suit you best. In many cases, your car parts can be sent by next-day delivery, so you can get on with repairing your car as soon as possible.
Car parts – up to 90 day guarantee
All the car breakers we deal with offer a 30-day guarantee as a minimum. All car parts you purchase from a dealer through 1st Choice Spares should carry this guarantee. Some dealers offer longer guarantees – 60 or 90 days – allowing you plenty of time to receive and fit your car parts and discover any problems with them. We’re sure that the car parts you receive will be reliable and in good condition, because we only work with reputable, established car breakers. The standard guarantee gives you the peace of mind you would expect if you were buying car parts brand new.
