Need to replace a car part? Sure, you could have the mechanic replace it with a brand new part, costing you hundreds, potentially thousands, of dollars. Used auto parts hold many advantages over new parts; we list them for you here:
- QUALITY. Used auto parts come from vehicles that are damaged. Often when the body of a car is beyond repair, the parts inside are still fully-functioning. Some parts may have even been repaired to a “good as new” condition.
- PRICE. The number one reason people choose used auto parts rather than new is because they are significantly cheaper. You will find quality parts for a fraction of the price, sometimes saving up to 50% of what you would pay for a new part.
- ENVIRONMENT. While damaged vehicles can be compacted and recycled, many parts will end up in trash dumps. When you purchase a used part, that means one less part sitting in a landfill. It will also reduce the need to manufacture new parts, lowering the amount of fuel used in production.
