We are pleased to announce the launch of Part Hunter! After working tirelessly for the last three months, we are now opening our site to the public. Part Hunter is Australia’s used automotive part market place and community. We offer a platform to buy, sell, request auto parts, search for a service or participate in our automotive community.
Part Hunter started as an idea for a solution to a need. Drawn up by two university friends, the idea came as a need to provide an easy dedicated platform for used automotive part trading. The main aim for Part Hunter was not a market place, but also a community where motor heads can come to an online location to share everything from stories to repair advice. Part Hunter’s goal is to become the number one location for buying and selling used automotive parts in Australia.
Part Hunter Features:
Types of Listings: With Part Hunter you have a number of options when it comes to listings. Above all we have made a number of categories to benefit our users. First of all, you can buy or sell auto parts. Furthermore we recognized that sometimes what you might might not be available. Hence, we also have the listing option to request a part or project. Finally, you can also search for services on Part Hunter. Need a mechanic, or want to advertise your car detailing business? Part Hunter is the perfect destination.

Talk Hubs: With our focus on community, there is not better place to discuss automotive topics and issues. Our site is not just for classified ads, but also a social automotive hub. Due to this vision of the platform, Part Hunter has three dedicated community areas for our users. Most noteworthy is the Forum, we have created this board to provide an appropriate area for all types of discussion. Secondly is the Part Hunter Blog, this page on the our site allows users to post and share their automotive stories, news, tips and tricks to other. Finally, the monthly Newsletter summarizes major events in the Australian motoring industry. Special features will be included involving members from the community explaining their stories and giving Q&As.
