Spare Parts

The use of second hand vehicle parts is as old as the motor car itself, and is probably the single greatest success story in the reuse/ recycling of any consumer product. Apart from saving you money & creating employment in the UK, it has enormous environmental benefits.

Sell or Scrap a Vehicle

Selling your vehicle to someone advertising in a local newspaper or on the Internet, especially if they have no premises & operate with just a mobile number, is fraught with risk. Chances are they are illegal. To avoid fines for speeding, parking or tax offences, only use MVDA members.

Buy a Damaged Vehicle

Buying salvage can be a great way to save money, & get the vehicle you want for a fraction of forecourt prices. But to make the most of it you need to understand exactly what you’re doing; in particular, what to avoid.
