New Model Wreckers Closes Down Due to the COVID-19 Crisis

If you’re a car business or car owner in Australia, chances are you’re familiar with New Model Wreckers, one of the trusted suppliers of car parts in Sydney and most regions of the country. Perhaps, big writings in yellow between two black and white karting flags ring a bell here.

This Sydney-based car wrecker has been around for a while, operating for almost three decades now. Sadly, the business has been affected by the pandemic that has almost brought the world to a stand.

Sydney's Decades-Old Wreckers Closes Down Due to COVID-19 

With the current crisis brought about by the novel coronavirus, New Model Wreckers recently announced that the business was closing down. We understand that the company won't resume services until after the pandemic. Their closing-down message eloquently states the situation, and so we quote them verbatim, thus:

“It is with extremely heavy hearts that we have made the decision to close our doors effective immediately until further notice. We have not taken this decision lightly, but in light of the current circumstances, with the pandemic of Covid-19, the safety of our staff and our customers is far too important to place at risk.

In almost 30 years of operation we have gone through many trials however nothing could have ever prepared us for the unprecedented effects of the Corona Virus. New Model Wreckers has gone through 2 generations and in that time has never closed their doors, not even for a day. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their continued support over the past 3 decades and after all this blows over we WILL be back! Stronger than ever with all our amazing staff you have gotten to know and work with.

From our staff and management we would just like to say, stay safe in this turbulent time. Reach out to the vulnerable and lets all band together. Let’s remember the good old Aussie way of helping one another, as we have always done in the face of many a tragedy. Let’s all be responsible in the way we conduct ourselves through these tough times and let’s get through this like we do everything else!”

For most car owners who had been loyal customers of New Model Wreckers, this is sad news. We understand that, though many customers have been affected and others inconvenienced, it was a necessary action for the greater good. All we can do now is stay safe and work towards containing the pandemic.

How the New Model Wreckers Has Become a Pillar in the Industry

Due to its wide reach, the New Model Wreckers has grown to become a well-followed business in the Australian automotive industry. It boasts of a long-standing experience since it started operating in 1992. Worth noting is that the New Model Wreckers is a family-run business, and we’re optimistic that it will carry on with that tradition after this temporary interruption.

Car owners looking for spare parts to keep their car running always knew where to head. The company had always been there to supply what customers needed. After wrecking, functional parts are stored on shelves, waiting for buyers and ready to be shipped. It was like your car had a lifeline ready to support it when it needed parts. 

The wrecker has undoubtedly been instrumental to many Aussie car businesses and individual car owners in various states. As it emerged as one of the leading car wreckers locally, it also served many customers internationally. 

Its performance never went unrecognised. In 2010, the company won the Business Achiever Awards for Fairfield Advance- Motor Vehicle Sales and Service. In 2014 yet again, it won the Local Business Awards in Fairfield City.

Looking Forward to New Model Wreckers’ Resumption of Business

Hopefully, as soon this pandemic levels off and the business is back on track (and we in the car part industry are one in cheering them on!), you may then visit any of their locations closest to you. 

To all of us, carry on! We may be down, but we’re not out. We’re stronger than this virus, and together, we’ll see this through!
