getting camera parts

As my Nikon D810 is going back for a small repair job I decided to have a look for new/ refurbished parts in the UK out of interest and cost of parts.

Could I find them? No


Thought about doing the repair myself if the insurance company said no. Spoke to the accesssors this afternoon and they are arranging pickup and delivery. Next will be the repair company getting hold of the parts which should not be hard for a newish camera


Even getting tools like micro magnatic screwdriver bits in a kit I had to really search hard for, that would do the job for repairing a camera.
Eventually found almost what I was after but even then go to another company for specialist tweezers for camera repairs

On the internet auction site I can get the parts I need from the USA-China- Japan- Taiwan -Hong Kong to name but a few countries.

This is just for one make of camera. What on earth is wrong with the UK doing the same? must be a thriving business if all these other countries are doing it
