Part Suppliers
« on: April 18, 2020, 10:09:15 pm »
Hi all,

Its been a while since I last posted but looking at my landy today I thought I would treat it!!!

But while making a list I wondered where to look first. Now I have used many suppliers over the years.

Craddocks, Paddocks, jgs4x4, Lune Valley 4x4, ect

But I thought id open a post for peoples good experiences. (and bad for whom to ignore not bitch about)

Now I really don't like Britpart I think I would like a supplier where I don't need to search and make sure it isn't brit, but what's the best alternative? Bearmark?

I thought it may need sectioning;

General Parts
I don't really know who's good or bad I have good experiences with a few to be fair.
JGS4x4?

Richards chassis were brilliant with me. I collected and got a conducted tour and a free bumper from the MD. He was very passionate about making a good product. If I remember rightly he was called Alistair, nice chap!

Automec are good for brake pipe sets
Dunsfold are food for those hard to find series parts.  Mostly genuine.

I'll second that from Blanchards. Good friendly service and they have always had what I wanted in stock.

Steve Parkers have done my rear wheel bearings, then post lock down I had electrical woes and they very kindly put me onto a very patient auto electrician who put to rights my erratic 24v Lights and horn.

Britpart supply a variety of qualities and if you go for their OEM or Genuine options, they are as good as anyone else! I have had Bearmach parts that are no good, and some genuine Land Rover parts too over the years.

Craddocks have come in for some criticism recently regarding quality of service, but I have had no problems even during our current 'situation'.

Paddocks service has been OK too.

If you use 'Britcar', they also give options on a lot of parts between Genuine, OEM and 'pattern' - you only get what you pay for!
