  • Yellow was the perfect avenue for us to expose ourselves to everyone.

Zebra U Pick Self Service Car Parts is a business built with the customer in mind. The business built with the customer in mind. The business began with a hobby and affinity for building cars, which led inevitably to sourcing car parts - then sometimes time consuming and scary mission. Warren strong and his brother decided to build a different kind of business in the second-hand parts industry - one that looked after the customer and made car parts accessible in an inviting indoor enviroment.

With its distinctive zebra stripe branding, the business has grown from its original warehouse, three locations in Onehunga, Manukau and Kamo in Whangarei. Warren has spent his entire life living and working around Onehunga area and his business advice is simple, "Find your niche and do it well".

Building a successful business takes time and dedication, Warren says that without the customer you haven't got a business. His recipe for success has been to advertise boldly and widely. But he cautions, "You can spend all the money in the world on advertising, but if it's not what people want, then it won't be successful".

With Yellow, Warren has been able to achieve his goal of advertising widely through marketing channels that reach his customers. With a combination of solutions, including the Yellow books, an online Yellow Profile, a video and Google Ads, he's got a spectrum of marketing covered off, "Yellow was the perfect avenue for us to expose ourselves to everyone", says Warren.

Warren has built a business that is unmistakably different and his partnership with Yellow helps him to makes sure he's found by his customers both in print and online.
