There are more than 250 million cars and trucks on the road in the United States. The average age of these cars is 11.5 years and, as we all know: the more cars age, the more parts they need. Consumers with vehicles older than 7 years are much more likely to purchase recycled parts but these parts are nearly impossible to purchase online. In 2012 there was $22 billion spent on recycled auto parts, but only 0.5% of those sales were online.
