Brexit and Used Parts

​​How will Brexit Affect the Used Parts Business?

15 months on from the Brexit vote and we look at how the result has affected the construction equipment parts business. The most immediate effect has been the decline in the value of Sterling.  At one stage it dropped to its lowest value in 31 years.

9,000+ Registered Users

Horray for UrParts

We at UrParts.com regularly have nice things to celebrate but this week we hit a particularly momentous occasion when we went over 9,000 users. As we eat, breath and sleep parts, it’s good to know that over 9,000 people out there have come to us for help. Just knowing that we helped all these people save both Time and Money in their quest to find construction parts gives us a particularly warm squishy feeling inside.

On closer inspection it transpires that these people are located in 170 different countries around the world.  This got us thinking… What countries are we missing?

Can anybody guess?
