Recycling Lives

About Us

We are part of the Recycling Lives group, and started to trade in 1961. The group has grown to become one of the largest and most reputable recycling companies in the North West and our expansion across the rest of the UK is planned over the next 24 months. Recycling Lives offer employment opportunities to people from marginalised communities and through our charity we provide accommodation and training in our purpose built centres.

Currently employing over 150 people, Recycling Lives employ more staff than any other UK car parts dealer, and they're ready to take your order for used car parts and despatch them to you next day!

How Does It Work?

We endeavour to hold most car parts on shelves ready for immediate despatch, our stripping bays run full-time ensuring that thousands more car parts are added to our website every month.

Car parts that are purchase online or through our sales lines can be despatched by courier for next day delivery to your address.

We also have a large stock of vehicles which are waiting to be dismantled, which means if you can't find the part you are after online, you can telephone us to check if we have it on an 'un-stripped' car. We will immediately check the cars we have in stock for the part(s) you require and call you back promptly to complete your order, or to advise you accordingly. If you are local to one of our depots you can call in to collect any new or used car part in person.

Number Plates - DVLA Registrations

All personalised number plates issued on DVLA certificate, over 60 million DVLA personalised registrations and 5 million car registrations available. Number plates for all cars supplied in only 4 days.

AutoBreakers carry out good Corporate Social Responsibility by employing Residents from Recycling Lives to carry out a range of Recycling activities.

Contract Hire is rapidly becoming a great way of getting a great commercial deal, but don't send it back with new tyres, just buy part worn from Autobreakers and change them before it goes back!
