About Us

We’ve been in business since 1985 and have grown into one of the internet’s leading used parts sellers. We’re a privately owned brick and mortar business that strives to make our loyal local and internet customers happy at every step of the transaction. At Tom’s Foreign Auto Parts, it’s not just about selling parts. It’s about creating a relationship with you, our customer and making sure we serve you the best we can. With over 26 years of experience selling auto parts we’ve come to know what it takes to stock the right inventory and to deliver on our promises. This isn’t a junk yard anymore; Tom’s is a state of the art auto recycling facility located in Waterbury CT. Every part of each car we dismantle is recycled or re used in an eco-friendly manner.

Our process starts with buying inventory from salvage auto auctions, local shops, and street customers. Buying quality cars to dismantle is key to making sure our used part inventory is nothing but quality. A dedicated inventory specialist looks over each car that gets here to judge what parts are re usable and what part are not. At that point we take 80+ photos of the car along with short narrated video of the vehicle. This step helps provide the buyer with as much information as possible when buying a part from us. The #1 goal is to build confidence in each used auto part purchase you make with us so you’ll be re assured that you’re getting a quality part.

When we dismantle a car, our skilled staff of auto dismantlers removes each part and carefully checks to make sure it’s in good condition. From there it either gets moved over to the shipping area to get shipped or it’ll get moved to a shelf location inside one of our buildings. All parts are stored inside to keep them safe from the elements. We take a minimum of three pictures per part when we pull it so that you can see exactly what part you’re buying before it arrives at your house. With over 300,000 pictures on our servers and 2,500+ videos, you’ll know exactly what you’re buying when you shop with Tom’s Foreign Auto Parts.

The final step is in our shipping department where our shipping staff carefully packs your used auto part and gives it one last quality check. We ship primarily with FedEx to make sure you get your part ASAP. If at any point you have a question about a part you bought or a car part you’re trying to locate just give us a call. Our sales guys are here waiting to help whether its via live chat, email, IM or phone. We offer an industry leading 6 month money back guarantee standard and even offer optional lifetime guarantees. The Tom’s Foreign Auto Parts staff is here to get you a quality OEM part at a price you can afford. Start shopping for used auto parts today by selecting the make of your car above.
