How to Sell Auto Parts and Accessories from Home In Australia

There are 19.8 million registered vehicles in Australia, according to a report from the Australian Bureau of Statistics in January 2020. These cars need maintenance, which often involves auto part replacement. 

What does this tell you? 

It's clear as day! It tells you that there’s a huge market for car parts out there! 

So if you choose to sell auto parts and play your cards right, you’re guaranteed to never run out of business. 

Plus, if you love automobiles and feel the rush whenever you hear the latest car trends, then that’s another big motivation. You get to do what you’re passionate about, make money out of it, and accomplish both by selling auto parts from home! 

Yes, it’s for real, and this post will answer many of your questions to help you get a good start. Let’s dive in!

What Auto Parts and Accessories Are in High Demand in Australia?

The first thing to do before you start selling auto parts and accessories is to determine which parts are in high demand. That way you avoid getting stuck with a product that's difficult to sell. It’s actually common sense.

Among the bestsellers are engines, turbochargers, head and taillights, car chargers, tyres, and GPS trackers, to name a few. Please refer to our posting on used auto parts and accessories that sell the most online in Australia and the most popular auto parts online to get an idea about these fast-selling items.

Which Car Parts Are Easiest to Sell from Home?

But hold on there for a minute. Sometimes, high-demand car parts and accessories may not be easy to sell from home. This could be due to constraints such as weight, size, and other factors. Below is a brief overview of auto parts that are easiest to sell and why. 

Let me segregate the parts under two categories, i.e. car parts and car accessories. 

Car Parts

1. Head and Tail Lights

These are possibly the most popular parts sought by car owners, and I see two reasons for that. One, replacing lights can pass for an exciting and easy DIY project. Two, most car owners can easily get them from smaller vendors online. As a home vendor, it’s in your best interest to stock up on head and tail lights. 

2. Wheels

Wheels don't take up much space, are easy to move around, and are always in demand; hence you might want to consider including this in your goods for sale.

3. Tyres

Rubber materials are relatively easy to maintain. That's why you may want to add tyres to that home shop you intend to set up. And since these are some of the most frequently replaced car parts, you can expect to rack up sales on this fast-turnover item.

4. Side View Mirrors

Side mirrors could last many decades under ideal circumstances. However, these are also among the most frequently damaged car parts in accidents and collisions, thus their quick turnover. What’s more, side mirrors are easy to store and don’t occupy a lot of space, so you’d be wise to have these in your shop.

5. Spark Plugs

Spark plugs are parts of a car that an owner will never want to see damaged and left unattended. A bad spark plug can easily turn a small problem into a major headache, that’s why responsible car owners will never think twice about buying a new one to replace the damaged part.

Car Accessories

1. Car Dash Cam

A dash cam is a digital dashboard-mounted camera, which is used to record the driver's view (and the car’s rearview in some models) when the car is started and in motion. The footage might prove useful from time to time, especially for insurance claims and investigations. This makes dash cams a helpful accessory in ensuring your road safety. Some models may also include parking and motion detectors, which provide another layer of safety.

2. Magnetic Phone Car Mount Holder

This accessory helps users keep their phone in place, enabling them to receive calls while driving. 

3. GPS Tracker

Of course, you know what a GPS tracker is. For the sake of those who don’t, a GPS tracker is a device installed in a vehicle to help pinpoint its location at any time. For obvious reasons, you'll not want to miss this item in your must-stock list. 

4. Smart Car Charger

This gadget is an excellent addition to any car. It offers a host of useful features as a bonus to its primary function, which is to charge devices. 

What Is the Easiest and Cheapest Way to Sell Car Parts in Australia?

Like any other venture, selling car parts and accessories from home means hard work and business acumen. You need to make sure that you operate profitably. That’s a tall order, I know, especially for a beginner. 

Fortunately, you do have an advantage. 

You will have a lower overhead cost (like rent, repairs, and utilities) and may have fewer people to pay salaries for. Lower costs directly translates to bigger profit.

And you know what?

There are useful tools to help you reach customers at the least cost.
