Terms and Conditions
Compare.Parts is a website which, amongst other things, compares the prices of aftermarket and performance car parts.
Compare.Parts allows you to find the best price for parts at the click of a button. You no longer have to spend ages searching countless websites for the best deal. Compare.Parts does the hard work for you! We frequently scan supplier websites showing you up-to-date parts prices so you can make the best decision.
We do not provide financial or other advice in relation to the products or services compared, nor do we provide a recommendation or endorsement.
When it comes to our providers, we don’t choose favourites. We offer impartial and independent comparison and our results are ranked by price.
