If the insurance company decides not to total your older model car then you need to look for repair shops to have your car fixed. Your insurance company will typically make an assessment as to which car parts you will need to repair your car, and in some cases, they will even recommend or demand you use a particular repair shop.
Online motor spares dealers, especially those offering secondhand car parts therefore can save you a fortune. And it's not just for car repairs either. If you have minor problems with your car such as faulty windscreen wipers or lights not working, by buying the parts online and fitting these yourself, again, you can save yourself and awful lot of money. If you don't know how to fit a particular part, a quick Google or a search on YouTube will almost certainly take you towards a host of resources which will tell you what to do with them. Car enthusiasts take great pride in undertaking their own repairs and generally tend to be very keen to help other people to fix theirs. As long as you are polite and reasonable (and as specific as possible with your request) you may be surprised at how easy some car maintenance and repair jobs actually are, even if you've never considered yourself to be a car "person".
Work with reliable exporters - This option is very essential since you do not want to waste finances on exporters who cannot provide you with the parts you need. Moreover, to help you find reliable exporters, make sure that they have the license of dismantling and exporting items. Other than that, you need to be sure that they have skilled employees who can efficiently do their work to avoid certain damages to the parts.
When classic cars are the issue, it really takes all kinds. So whether you are a purist that demands original parts for you classic restoration, or you want the look of a fully restored classic car and you have no issue with using replica after market parts, everyone can be happy. With options for both, your classic car restoration can be exactly what you wanted it to be.
One of the markets that you are opened up to online, is that of the car breakers. These are people who buy a car that is no longer fit for the road, and they literally take it apart piece by piece and sell it. For those who sell these parts online, this is like having access to a car scrap yard without having to go and negotiate with a gruff car scrapyard owner. For those of us who know relatively little about cars and prefer not to have to face the prospect of pointing out to an expert which car parts we need, this can be a big relief!
