LKQ Euro Car Parts urges garages and bodyshops to seize LCV opportunity

Date: Friday 02 July 2021

As part of its ongoing commitment to the independent aftermarket and as a specialist in Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs), LKQ Euro Car Parts is highlighting the opportunity for garages and bodyshops to offer van servicing, maintenance and repairs.

Despite the headwinds of Brexit and Covid-19, the home delivery sector grew exponentially in 2020, and recent SMMT figures show a 9.5% year-on-year growth in registrations of new LCVs, as fleets of all sizes keep up with demand.

Colin Cottrell, marketing director at LKQ Euro Car Parts, said:

“LCVs are the lifeblood of our country, and our national van fleet is growing. From tradespeople to delivery services, businesses rely on the performance of their vehicles. Time spent off the road is simply not an option, which is where independent garages and bodyshops come in.
“Our unrivalled range of LCV parts and services, along with specialist support from our expert teams, can help workshops to keep van drivers on the road, enabling them to drive loyalty and trust from an expanding customer base.”

LKQ Euro Car Parts offers the UK’s largest range of specialist mechanical and collision parts for LCVs, from headlights and bumpers to shock absorbers, stabiliser links and more.

Garages and bodyshops that order via the Omnipart online platform can also enjoy priority service, ensuring their parts go on the next van to leave their local LKQ Euro Car Parts branch – and with the option to track their delivery until the moment it arrives, to help with effective scheduling in the workshop.

Colin Cottrell added:

“Online orders can be faster than buying parts over the phone, and their digital footprint is an added benefit. Returns and warranties are also easier to manage – not to mention the phone lines being freed up for customers to use.”
