About us

Autoparts is a family business and started as a car dismantling company in Christchurch in 1924.

In the past the company had four branches in NZ and also Sydney, Australia and California, USA. In 1985 Autoparts started buying used engines and spares from Japan and we have concentrated on that product since then. Cars are today purchased from auctions and dismantled in Japan. The engines and associated parts are sold from our warehouse in Tuam st and the body panels are sold in bulk to specialist insurance repair companies.

In 2015 Autoparts became NZ agents for Centara tyres that are manufactured in China to European specifications. The direct link between the factory and Autoparts has put these quality tyres in the market at very low prices. In 2016 Autoparts became the NZ agents for DMACK rally tyres. Autoparts has had a long history of supporting motorsport and are very proud to be associated with this world-class brand.
