ebay has relaunched its Certified Recycled programme, which sells recycled vehicle parts from 81 certified sellers and reports that UK motorists saved £99 million in 2022 by opting for used parts and accessories instead of brand-new replacements.
The online marketplace says Certified Recycled parts can be up to 70% cheaper compared to OEM parts RRP – all parts are checked and certified by the Vehicle Recyclers Association and warrantied – body parts feature a 12-month warranty while mechanical parts come with three months of protection – and are only supplied from end-of-life vehicles from approved sellers.
Additionally, they also come with a reduced environmental footprint. Last year, eBay UK shoppers buying used car parts and accessories saved more than 16,000 tonnes of CO2 and prevented 3,000,000kg of waste from ending up in landfills. This saving resulted from the millions of used parts sold across the eBay site last year, including almost one million exterior parts and accessories (including items such as mirrors, bumpers and door handles), over 400,000 lighting parts, and over 130,000 engine-related parts.
