Many people motor around in blissful ignorance and something must first go wrong with their cars before they ask the question, “Where can I find car parts close to me?”. Well, if you live in Gauteng, “close to me” can mean Johannesburg or Pretoria, so you’ll be pleased to hear that A.S.A.P. Spares is located in Pretoria West. If you are looking for a part for a Suzuki, Peugeot, Citroën, Renault, Opel, or Chevrolet, you will most likely be able to find it in our shop or scrapyard.
We specialised in the above-mentioned six brands and we offer the motorist an alternative to expensive parts that they have no choice but to buy brand-new though the official dealerships. Yes, some of us drive new models that are covered by warranties and motor plans but the rest of us have to pay cash for spares and these can be very expensive. And sometimes, you don’t need a new part and you would be perfectly willing to buy a second-hand one at a much-reduced price – if you could just find it! Well, if you drive one of these brands, you will more than likely find that part at A.S.A.P. Spares.
“What If I Cannot Find the Parts I am Looking for Close to Me?”
It may happen that we do not have the part you have been looking for in stock. It’s worth a look because we have thousands of parts that can be salvaged from the wrecks in our scrapyard. However, even that could fail and it could turn out that we simply don’t have it on the day that you pay us a visit. That’s what our request-a-part service is for. We have an extensive supplier network that we have carefully curated since we opened our doors in 2001 and they will often be able to supply a part that we don’t have in stock. Therefore, you have an excellent chance to come away with what you need when you deal with us.
Chevrolet and Citroën – the Elephants in the Room
Yes, we don’t want to talk about it. You love your car, but you drive a Chevy or a Citroën and you are disappointed that these brands have been withdrawn from the South African market. The good news is that Chevrolet is now under Isuzu’s auspices locally, with Isuzu dealerships servicing these cars. Citroën falls under the PSA Group, so Peugeot South Africa is looking after Citroën cars. This means that both brands still have local support from their parent companies in some way and as long as there are sufficient numbers of them on the roads, we will have access to their parts and to written-off wrecks from which we can salvage parts for you to buy. Therefore, you might be able to hold onto your car for a little while longer, knowing that we will most probably be able to supply parts for it.
If you are a Gauteng resident and you drive one of our six specialist brands, you now have the answer to “Where can I find car parts close to me at affordable prices?”. Your “close to me” is A.S.A.P. Spares in Pretoria West.
