Twelve Month Guarantee launched

We all understand the potential of trade markets to this industry and none of us doubt that confidence in our products often holds body shops and garages back. To help allay these fears and to demonstrate confidence in the parts they supply, Reco have taken the bold move of offering a twelve month guarantee on green recycled parts.


RecoAuto believe they are the first in the UK to offer a twelve month guarantee on all green recycled parts sold by the company. We haven’t heard of any other company offering this length of guarantee; if you know differently, please let us know.

RecoAuto, who many of you will have seen recently at CARS in July, are part of the Autofinity Group, and have announced that all green recycled parts sold through their on-line platform are now covered by a twelve month guarantee. Having built up an impressive market reputation for their parts sales over the last three years, this latest announcement extends their current 30-day guarantee.

Geoff Wheeler, CEO of Autofinity, said “as a company we are always trying to bring additional benefit to our customers, and this was one way that we could give them peace of mind that they are purchasing a quality part from a proven supplier”.

Commenting on the initiative, Andy Latham, Head of RecoAuto said “RecoAuto are possibly the first in the UK to give a twelve month warranty as standard on all green recycled parts we sell, this shows the confidence we have in our parts and enhances the professional reputation of the company”.

You can find out more about RecoAuto, order parts, or ask for advice from their staff on 0844 851 0576 or search for available parts on their web site.
