In recent years, Australian consumers have shown a tendency to purchase new cars, which means that the average age of cars on the road is getting younger. This is not good news for the dismantling and used parts wholesale industry as they rely on used cars to provide replacement parts and repairs. Also, newer cars are likely to come with crash-avoidance technology which lessens the need for smash repairs and replacement parts.
