Something a little different from Volvo Group with the operation flicking the switch on a new e-commerce store – VMR Truck Parts.
The online store is geared to sell used and reconditioned parts to suit older Mack, UD and Volvo trucks.
Interestingly, VMR Truck Parts is not a new operation, it has in fact operated since 1995!
It was originally setup to service its own dealer network with recycled parts from used Volvo Trucks, reducing waste and offering an alternative parts option for operators.
Now, over 34,000 parts to suit Mack, UD and Volvo trucks are available through the online portal.
Tony O’Connell, Vice President of Aftersales and Service for Volvo Group Australia, says everything from door handles to transmissions are just a click away.
“Buyers looking at VMR are typically not shopping for brand new parts – they’re not coming through our Dealer network. They may be shopping at wreckers, on Gumtree or eBay and are looking for an alternative option.
“This is a responsible way of providing that option while at the same time ensuring quality and safety.”
All parts are cleaned, inspected, checked and graded before they are dispatched, and Volvo Group assure us that anything that fails to meet their high standards is sorted and recycled.
