The cost comparison of used auto parts vs new auto parts
It would be impossible, in a short article like this, to give you cost comparisons for every auto part in every vehicle made, but we can tell you that the industry standard for savings on used car parts for sale is around 40% nationwide. For example, if a new transmission costs $5000 for your car or truck, you would pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $3000 for a used transmission.
Obviously, those kinds of savings are considerable and worth your consideration, especially if you are a hard-working stiff, with very little disposable income, who needs your vehicle to commute to work daily.
Saying goodbye to traditional auto repair
But that is just part of the picture. Traditionally, if you needed a new transmission for your commuting car, you would take it to a mechanic. They would charge you the $5000 for the new transmission, but they would also charge you, on average, $75 per hour to install that new transmission, and those labor costs could easily eat up another couple thousand of your hard-earned dollars.
The best-case scenario: you have the money to pay for the repairs. The worst-case scenario: you don’t have the money, and you have no way to get to work.
Embrace the DIY movement and learn on the fly
We have heard it time and time again: “But I don’t know how to do car repair! I have to pay a mechanic because I just don’t have the knowledge to repair a vehicle.” And to that we say NONSENSE! If you have access to the internet, and you have access to YouTube, then you have access to all of the information you need to complete 75%-90% of all car repairs. Literally anyone with basic tools can change brakes on a car or truck. Literally anyone with basic tools can replace a fuel pump or a fuel tank. All you need is a willingness to learn and a desire to, as Larry the Cable Guy says, “get ‘er done!”
You CAN do this. The values await you at your local salvage yards.
