Store Review
Review: 5 out of 5
Comment: Fantastic service. I stupidly ordered the wrong parts. I guess this company has seen this many times before. So before dispatch they contacted me to check the serial number of my machine and they discovered I had ordered the wrong model. Not only did they save me the time without the machine on hire And would have lost hire fees and upset customers. They also saved the money of an expensive return postage cost that i would quite rightly have to pay to return tbe items Fantastic service fast delivery. They worked with Mr while I was overseas sorting this out for me I cant recommend this company enough the service is exceptional and not once was I left on hold during the communication Thank you so much for saving my embarrassing moment and the saving of my postage costs and delays.

When should I replace my alternator ?

Signs your alternator may be failing:

1. Dimming or flickering lights

An alternator provides power to the headlights and interior lights of your equipment. When your alternator’s life is beginning to diminish, it will send less power to your equipment’s lights. As it sends less power, your lights will start to dim and/or flicker.

2. Burning smells

As the alternator’s life declines, the drive belt may be overworked and be under constant strain and friction. This friction will create heat and produce the smell of burning rubber.

Not only is the belt under extra friction, but so are the wires. This friction will cause damage to your wires and you may start to smell an odor similar to an electrical fire. If this happens, check your alternator right away!

3. Grinding or whining noises

When your alternator is failing, the belt is being overworked causing it to become misaligned or damaged. As this happens, it is common to hear grinding or whining noises coming from under the hood of your equipment.

4. Trouble starting

Your equipment relies on the alternator to charge the battery by providing power to the spark plugs. If the alternator is having a difficult time sending power to the spark plugs, your equipment may stall, have trouble starting, or have a dead battery.

5. Other electrical defects

Additional warning signs of a malfunctioning alternator include warning or indicator lights and electrical problems. Some common electrical issues consist of failing battery powered windows, locks and radio. Moreover, the displays on your dashboard will often indicate an issue with your alternator. Look out for the battery light or the lights titled “ALT” or “GEN”. If one of these lights shows up, immediately check your alternator.

Delivery Fraud

Scam warning!!!

With covid 19 happening we have found more of an increase in online ordering for delivery. Scammers have now court onto this new trend and now aiming their scams in this direction.

One of the more prominent #phishing scams involves fake email messages or text messages pretending to be from the Royal Mail, DPD or other delivery providers. The message may indicate that a courier has tried to deliver a parcel. It then asks you to reschedule the delivery by clicking a link to a fake website, and to settle an outstanding delivery fee. This is a smart scam, as the email uses various techniques to try and obtain your personal information.

Please be very vigilant against scams, Somethings to consider is:

  • Are you expecting a delivery? If not, then question why you would receive this email/ Text.
  • Would you expect the delivery company to know and contact you via your email address or phone number?

If you are expecting a delivery, Contact the sender to check first before clicking any link or providing any personal information.

Here at UK Construction Parts deliveries to the UK do not incur extra charges for re-delivery from the delivery company.

Supply Chain

Supply delays ,  is this too much demand, Brexit or Covid 19 ?

The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) has said that high demand for construction products is likely to continue for at least the rest of this year, and that construction sector companies “should not expect any improvement” when it comes to supply chain issues over the coming months.

A statement from the co-chairs of CLC’s Product Availability working group, said that even though demand for construction products is not as high as was in the summer – mostly due to “softening in residential DIY and repair, maintenance and improvement projects” – the market is still extremely strong and is expected to remain so for the rest of 2021.

“While product supply has improved in some areas, several critical challenges remain, particularly around logistics and related labour shortages, and rising product and input costs,” the CLC said.

“The shortage of HGV drivers remains the most critical issue across the board, cited by many as a key risk involving not only late deliveries but hiring, retention and wage inflation.”

In addition to the HGV driver situation, for which no improvement is expected until at least the first quarter of next year, the delivery of raw materials, products and components are also continuing to be affected by global shipping issues.

“Some UK ports also continue to struggle, with their problems exacerbated by the shortage of HGV drivers causing further delays in moving products from the ships onto the road network. These issues, both global and domestic, are expected to continue well into 2022,” said the CLC.

There are also warnings that high gas and electricity costs and associated carbon costs, which are impacting both UK and overseas ‘heavy-side’ manufacturers, will soon lead to significant price increases across the board

The CLC, which works with the construction firms and the government to identify and deliver actions to support the UK construction industry, is also expecting the price of cement – and consequently concrete products – to rise as a result of the increased energy costs.

The supply chain issues and raw material shortages are also anticipated to impact the supply of paint and coatings products, increasing both lead times and prices.

Potential Disruption at French Ports ( IMPORT AND EXPORT 

Over the last few days, the news headlines have been focusing on the UK / French political relationship and the threat of possible disruption this may cause. 

It is possible that your shipments to or from France may be affected by French action at short notice. Any action would also have an affect on goods transiting France to or from Europe.


We are monitoring the situation closely and will issue updates as and when we have positive information of any action being taken. We do ask however, that you bear in mind the possible French action locking ports to UK ships, possible disruption via the channel tunnel and increasing checks by French Customs on shipments travelling inbetween the UK and France for exports and imports.


We intend to continue with our normal departure schedule. However, transit times and vehicle availability may be elongated if French action is implemented.

Sorry we hope to have better news soon
