LKQ distributes a variety of products to collision and mechanical repair shops, including aftermarket collision and mechanical products, recycled collision and mechanical products, refurbished collision products such as wheels, bumper covers and lights, and remanufactured engines. LKQ refers to these products as alternative parts because they are not new OEM products. 

LKQ is the nation’s largest provider of alternative vehicle collision replacement products and a leading provider of alternative vehicle mechanical replacement products, with sales, processing, and distribution facilities reaching most major markets in the United States. LKQ’s wholesale operations also reach most major markets in Canada. The majority of its products and services are sold to collision repair shops, also known as body shops, and mechanical repair shops. LKQ also generates a portion of its revenue from scrap sales to metal recyclers.
