We are All Import Auto Parts, serving the Greater Fort Worth area. Call us for information about all used car parts and all used truck parts.
Buy online from stranger
If you have access to the internet, and access to a site like Craigslist, you can go this route. Somewhere in the vicinity you live in, someone is parting out a car like yours. It may not be local. You may have to drive fifty or one-hundred miles to get the part, but it is possible to find the used auto parts or used truck parts you need at a decent price.
Warning: you have no idea about the quality of the part you are purchasing. You have no idea if this guy selling the parts is legit or not. You have no idea if the part even works, or if it was stolen.
You have no idea!
Do you really want to take the chance?
Buy online from national car parts company
Companies like Auto Zone or CarParts or PartsGeek will have the part you need. Simply go online, visit their website, type in the part you need, and they will give you a price for that part. You then pay for the part, pay for shipping, and it is delivered to your home.
The problem? You are not buying used, and you are paying a premium price for the part!
The main reason why people purchase used truck parts is because they need to save money. You will not save money purchasing from sites like Auto Zone or CarParts. You are going to pay premium price, no discounts, no deals, period. Yes, the part will be high quality, so you don’t need to worry about buying a bad product, but you will also be paying forty or fifty percent more than you need to pay.
Buy from salvage yards
There are literally thousands of salvage yards across the United States. Each one is online, and each one can tap into an application which gives them access to the inventories of wrecking yards across the country.
Here’s how it works. You go to a local salvage yard like All Import Auto Parts, or you pull up their website. You tell them you want a fuel pump for a 2010 Toyota Camry, or a 2010 Toyota Tacoma. They do a search of their inventory, and if they don’t have it on their lot they search other inventories. They find the fuel pump you need, they have it delivered, and everyone is happy, money saved, a simple transaction.
Are you buying a quality used part? Places like All Import Auto Parts offers a 90-day warranty with every used part sold. You save, on average, 40%. What’s not to like about this option?
