About Patrolapart

Established in 2007, Patrolapart was created in response to customers' feedback and concerns of the dismantling industries' performance in customer service. Ethics form the cornerstone of our operation.

The business began primarily as a specialist Nissan Patrol dismantler. Customers began requesting products outside of the dismantling stock, we listened and we now offer new, genuine Nissan parts, aftermarket parts and 4x4 accessories.

Patrolapart offers fitment of parts, free advice and a cost effective delivery service, both nationally and internationally.

Patrolapart has grown to become the leading Australian supplier of Patrol related parts, we live and breathe Patrols.
