Find inexpensive used car parts for sale online by visiting auction sites such as eBay.com or classifieds sites such as Craigslist.org. Buyers can also use services such as UNeedAPart to buy from a auto salvage yard, or use sites such as JunkYardDog.com to buy directly.
Automotive salvage and recycling yards are good resources for cheap used parts because the parts need to be removed from a vehicle rather than being maintained in a typical inventory system. A buyer using the UNeedAPart.com site can submit a request for a specific part and have a member of the company search for the part among its partnered auto yards.
Another way to find the cheapest used parts is to use the price filtering tools on online classifieds and auction sites. Both eBay and Craigslist allow users to communicate with private sellers and small businesses selling various types of used auto parts. Craigslist allows sellers to create free ads that can contain pictures and text and provides a message relay system for connecting buyers and sellers, while eBay offers a fully functional online marketplace. For example, a buyer on eBay can contact the seller and make a payment for a used part directly through the site.
