You’re a DIYer and you’re having car troubles. You trace the issue back to a bad alternator. An easy fix as far as you’re concerned, so you head to your local parts store, get the part home, install it and find out the part is faulty. Then you repeat the process only to find you’ve gotten another bad alternator straight from the factory floor. And then it happens a third time!
If you work on your own car, you’ve probably lived that story more than once. It’s a shame, but these days, the hardest part about fixing your car can actually be getting replacement parts that actually work! At U Wrench It in Atlanta, Georgia, we have a time-tested alternative to the cheaply made new parts from big box auto parts stores.
Buying used car parts can benefit you in a multitude of ways. Here are just a few…
Right off the bat, your wallet is the first beneficiary of buying used car parts. Depending on the part you need, you could save up to 50% by buying used. Used parts are also thoroughly checked and warrantied just like new parts.
Used parts come straight from cars that have been on the road. Whether the car or truck was wrecked or had a fatal mechanical issue, there are almost always salvageable parts that are in perfect shape. That means that when you recycle a part from another car, there’s no need to manufacture that part in a factory. This decreases the carbon footprint and pollution associated with making new car parts.
Not All Parts Are Created Equal
There are some parts you’ll probably want to buy new. Breaks and rotors are a good example. However, things like transmissions, mirrors, tires and interior parts are perfectly good used. It all comes down to finding a reputable salvage yard or used parts dealer. In the Atlanta area, U-Wrench-It can guarantee you’ll be happy with your choice to go used.
