how to sell car parts?
« on: January 12, 2015, 07:42:23 PM »
we decluttered and found some spare parts from our prior car (Buick).
The parts are:
alternator &  ignition coil
Do you know if there is a market for parts?

Thanks

Craigslist/Kijiji/eBay, and/or any car forums that might exist for that make/model.

CL for anything heavy or big, eBay for the rest.

First determine what they cost new (these are unused parts, correct?).  If new and the packaging is intact, I'd ask about 50% of the local auto supply cost on craigslist with a cash and carry listing.  Be ready to negotiate down for anybody standing in front of you with money in hand. 

Since you're talking about GM parts, chances are they fit many different vehicles so the post the general part number from the packaging as well.
