Canadians are keeping their cars longer than ever, meaning tuneups, fix-ups and enhancements are in demand. But, with ongoing supply chain issues and inflation, getting the right parts at the right time, and at the right price, is more challenging than ever.
Long-time automotive service professionals often experience moments of concern when trying to make sure their customers’ vehicles are road-ready on time and on budget. Especially for the customers that bring in the most rare and unique cars to the shop for maintenance, the parts aren’t always easy to find, or at prices the shop would feel comfortable charging.
eBay Motors is the perfect solution to meet the needs of automotive service professionals. The eBay Motors’ My Garage feature is a helpful tool in their tool kit, allowing them to tailor their search results to a specific make or model, making it even easier to find the right parts and accessories for their specific car project, at the best deal. Take an oxygen sensor for a 1999 Saab as an example – using eBay My Garage turns up more than 450 listings from the OE supplier and some of the best aftermarket brands.
With My Garage, all you have to do is:
- Choose the year, make, model, trim, and engine of the car or truck.
- Hone your search by product, brand, or keyword, such as anti-lock braking systems, pads, struts, wiper blades, or any auto parts category.
Ryan Baltjes, Head of Motors at eBay Canada, says that the easy lookup is only part of the story. “Auto service providers are familiar with entering the year, make and model to search for parts. The nice feature with My Garage is if you’re logged in as an eBay user, it will retain that information, to tailor your future shopping experience to what’s in your garage,” adds Baltjes.
Building out its extensive inventory offerings to the marketplace, eBay Motors gives Canadian automotive service professionals access to trustworthy brands and hard-to-find parts and accessories for every need and every vehicle, including motorcycles, ATVs, boats, commercial trucks, and more. And eBay’s Money Back Guarantee on new and used parts means purchases are worry-free.
With more than 30 key categories of parts listed, eBay.ca/motors has a range of inventory for every car: Engine Cooling Components; Advanced Driver Assistance Systems; Electric, Hybrid & PHEV Specific Parts; Air & Fuel Delivery; Transmission & Drivetrain, and more.
“There’s been a lot of scarcity around parts and accessories in the past two years, and for professionals looking to get a vehicle repaired and back on the road quickly, they’ve had to be more creative as to where they find key components, with many turning to online shopping for the first time as a result,” says Baltjes. “But trust still remains paramount for them, along with quality, value and depth of inventory. So many are finding eBay’s global marketplace of trusted automotive sellers and unparalleled inventory as their new go-to destination for those hard-to-find parts that will complete their project.”
eBay Motors continues to expand to meet the growing needs of the industry. In fact, nearly 30 parts and accessories are being added every minute in Canada, and across North America, three automotive parts are sold every second!
