About us

At LKQ Euro Car Parts we have more than 280 branches across the UK, and we go above and beyond every day to give independent garages a competitive edge.

We’ve got more than 160,000 parts which are always in stock – and while we’re committed to delivering on time, every time, our role’s about so much more than that.

We host hundreds of training courses every year – online and in person – giving garages the skills both to work on modern vehicles, and to meet the needs of modern drivers.

We also supply the latest equipment and digital workshop solutions, and we’re always on hand to share insights and advice.

Ultimately, we’re here to help independent garages maximise efficiency and productivity in the workshop, while delivering a top quality service to their customers – today, tomorrow and in the future.
