    Hello All,

    FYI, i would not be buying 'whole' cars and dismantling them, but i would be sourcing individual used parts from merchants, with the intention of reselling them myself for profit.

    Is there any specific legislation that would prevent or restrict me from doing the above?

    As mentioned, NO cars will be bought and dismantled - my intention is not to be a 'breaker' but simply, a seller of used car parts.

    I would be storing the parts on my private premises. Is there any other legislation i should be aware when doing this?

    Many thanks in advance for all advice given in regard to this matter.

    As a layman, I don't see any problem with this. Car parts can be a nice little earner, I understand. Just don't advertise them as new.

    'Refurbished', 'Near-new',' Second hand' goods make a lot of money for a lot of people.
