About Us

We are a leading UK retailer of Starter Motors and Alternators with an excellent range and availability far exceeding our nearest competitor.

We stock parts for cars, vans, marine, plant, industrial and off-highway, including rare and hard to source-for makes and models. All our stock is physical and located in our UK warehouse. We only sell premium-quality new or remanufactured parts which are never reconditioned or low-quality imports.

Everything we sell is fully tested with end-of-line OE test equipment ensuring the part you buy from us is reliable and free from problems. Our stock is always being updated but if we do not currently have the part you need we will be able to get it as a special order with a fast turnaround. We also sell Starter Motors / Alternators for luxury and super-cars such as Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche and Rolls-Royce. Our catalogue is truly industry leading.

We offer free next working-day shipping on all order to UK, plus rates for the rest of the world. All our prices are inclusive of VAT.

Please contact us with your order enquiry and we will be able to help. You can also use the cross reference search at the top of this page. It will open up our catalogue site if you wish to find the part number you need before calling.

Alternatively you can visit our new online store where you are free to browse our extensive catalogue and use our industry leading cross reference search at your leisure.


Price includes UK shipping (excluding remote and offshore locations) and VAT and we do not require your old part in exchange like some other sellers with cheaper units. Our price is all inclusive. This part is fully tested with end-of-line OE test equipment. It matches or exceeds original-equipment manufacturer specifications and is a premium quality UK made part.


This part may be listed for your vehicle but may not be the part you require due to vehicle variations.

Please ensure you check our part finder on our website or email us at sales@startermotoralternator.com before purchasing. If after checking there is only one part listed then it will be correct. If there is more than one choice then you will need to provide additional information from your old part or vehicle to ensure you purchase the correct item.

We cannot guarantee the accuracy of eBay's vehicle search, so please check on our website link or contact us.
