About Us

Flying Spares was formed in 1995 by Ben and Lucy Handford. Since then the business has grown and developed almost beyond recognition and now offers an unrivalled choice of spare parts - New (Genuine & Aftermarket), Reconditioned and Recycled - for every Rolls-Royce and Bentley model built since 1946. We became proudly Employee Owned in February 2020, a momentous development for Flying Spares. More details can be found here.

In 2009 we became members of the prestigious Rolls-Royce & Bentley Specialists Association (www.rrbsa.co.uk). As the first member company concentrating exclusively on the supply of parts (rather than the restoration of cars), we were particularly proud to become accepted. Having sat on the Board of Directors for a number of years, Ben stood as Chairman of the RRBSA between 2018 and 2021.

As well as showcasing our most popular parts, we hope that our website enables you to understand the full range of services that we offer.

Within our Cars pages, you can find all vehicles currently being broken, as well as many that we have dismantled in the past and those that we are offering for sale or have previously sold.

We aim to offer as much technical assistance as possible to help our customers to diagnose faults and to fit the correct parts. Please do not hesitate to contact us for advice.

The parts we supply are easily defined as New, Reconditioned or Recycled and further information about each of these can be found by clicking on the relevant pages.

We are very proud of the levels of service we offer, both in terms of the quality of the parts we sell and the quality of the service that our dedicated team offers. We use the independent review service Trustpilot to encourage our customers to leave a review; all of these can be viewed here. If there are any features that you feel are missing from our website, or any improvements that you feel we could make, please let us know.


We believe that it is the talent and dedication of the people who work for us that makes us stand out from our competitors. Each one of us cares passionately about providing the highest level of customer service to help you to keep your classic car on the road.
