about parthunter

Part Hunter was born of an idea; an idea that started as a solution to a need. Part Hunter is a platform dedicated to the notion that automotive part-trading should be as simple as it is fun; a marketplace that moves beyond the exchange of automotive goods and services to create a vibrant community where motor-heads can share everything from stories to restoration and repair expertise. Part Hunter’s objective is to become the leading destination for the trade in used automotive parts across Australia.


Buy, Sell & Request

Buying and selling are the core focus of Part Hunter. Part Hunter provides a platform that will allow users to find the right automotive part for their needs. In addition Part Hunter also allows users to make requests for a part they are searching for. You never know what is sitting neglected in someone’s shed.


Other then just offering automotive parts, Part Hunter gives users the opportunity to list automotive services.  Whether you run a car detailing business, a body shop or even host a car club. Part Hunter provides the perfect platform to give your service valuable exposure to like minded people.


Unfortunately we have all been here. We had a dream of doing up our favorite childhood car, but for reasons ranging from time, money or an impatient partner we have had to give up the build and now sits untouched.  Part Hunter give this project a chance of a second life, by having it listed on the platform.
