About us

Youngs Automotive has been a vital part of the automotive parts supply chain in the top of the south and West Coast for over 35 years.

We took over this great company in February 2008.
We have four dedicated specialist salesmen with many years of experience in the automotive parts supply business.

We are a superior wholesaler/retailer supplying automotive, commercial and marine parts specializing in electrical components and accessories.
A lot of pride is taken in the expert advice we are able to offer putting us strides above our competitors and we can provide this as we have one qualified auto electrician and two ex-mechanics in our sales team.

We focus on Nelson, Marlborough, Golden Bay and the West Coast but this does not stop us servicing the whole of NZ as we can and will send our products Nationwide with very competitive freighting options available.

Youngs Automotive is an authorized dealer for leading and top quality brands such as Hella, Narva, VDO, Ryco and Fram. We are also a preferred supplier for Capricorn and Farmlands.

We strive to give every customer the service and advice they deserve and require, we are proud of our team for doing this day in and day out.
