If you want the full measure and availability when it comes to auto parts, Lithgow could be the very place to make a pit stop. Auto Parts Central are not just a retail automotive parts one-stop shop but are specialists in supplying parts for commercial and agricultural use too.
The Lithgow store was started up by the late Peter Falcke in 1985 – and the business remains in the Falcke name today. It initially traded as a vehicle repairer and a spare parts outlet, specialising in brake, clutch, suspension repair and automobile components.
After trading like this for more than ten years, the spare parts side of the business grew to a point where they needed more warehouse space for the increasing range of stock and supply. And this, coupled with industry demand for a trade-qualified specialist and a locally owned automotive spare parts reseller, led to the closure of the vehicle repair side of the business back in 2007.
So, now it’s all about spare parts.
“We stock quite literally just about anything you need for your car, including brake components, suspension components, wheel bearing kits, oil and oil filters, the list goes on really,” they said. “Most of them are made in Australia, however some are made in Europe or by reputable companies in Asia.”
And they also have stock for the less customary clients, like those with racing cars. There is a wide range of high-end Raceworks parts, usually exclusively used for track and high-performance cars that many other spare parts shops simply don’t stock.
Customers with big trucks and commercial vehicles are not neglected either as Auto Parts Central are specialists in applications like oils, underbody and trailer parts for commercial and agricultural vehicles.
“We are able to source industrial supplies – such as bulk packs of large ratchet straps for logging trucks for large companies – at a very competitive price.”
And do they all like working together? You bet.
“We have a really great team, everyone is friendly and there is always a bit of banter,” they said. “But we all know that we’re here to work and service the local community, so we all support each other to get the job done as best as we can, which creates a really positive work environment.”
So, if you want a good deal on spare parts, drop in and see the friendly team at Auto Parts Central, and you may be surprised about how much you can save.
