Bearings can vary in how long they last. When it comes to automotive applications like cars, trailers, and caravans, the left-hand bearings often endure the brunt of road conditions such as potholes, gutters, and rough edges and therefore are quicker at wearing out. Bearings play a critical role in these situations, enduring millions of revolutions and supporting immense weight throughout their lifespan. Despite their seemingly simple construction, bearings perform a remarkable task considering their value and significance.
Yes, the bearings we sell are just as good as genuine parts, if not better, and they come at a significantly lower cost. Genuine automotive manufacturers such as Toyota, Ford, and others do not manufacture their own bearings; instead, they source them from established bearing manufacturers like NTN and Koyo, which are the same suppliers we work with. Despite being sourced from the same manufacturers, our bearings are typically much more affordable than those offered by larger businesses. This makes them a cost-effective option without compromising on quality.
Yes, in fact we sell oil seals, O-rings, belts, steel balls, and automotive bearings too. Just because our name includes bearings it isn’t all we sell.
No, but we have numerous workshops locally that can do that for you.
