    Seems like a good idea if you live in the UK and have a truck..Preferably one that gets decent MPG or else that extra earnings are going to waste lol :p

    I sell car parts. I can list 100 reasons why its not as profitable as it sounds in the coffee shop but the obvious ones are transport , storage, faulty parts and returns and most importantly compatability. One make/model of car that has a five year production run can have multiple clutch/transmission/running gear configurations. Oh and companies like eurocarparts will post stuff to Romania/Switzerland pretty cheap anyway.

    Is there anything you don't do? :)

    On topic, you should also consider the labor and cost involved in this type of venture. It's not exactly free or instant. However, it could inspire someone to consider their local markets and think bigger than car parts so for that I say well done.
