The problem with used car parts on Craigslist or ebay
We are not here to tell you that all used auto body parts purchased on Craigslist, or ebay, are a risk. We are simply pointing out a glaring problem with this approach to DIY car repair. That problem is this:
Either there is no guarantee that what you are buying, online, is of good quality, or there is a warranty, of sorts, but you are then stuck with the hassle of returning the defective parts back to the seller, and then waiting for your refund.
Bottom line: you have no idea who you are buying from on those online sites. Yes, they have ratings, but we are talking about mechanical parts which directly effect the performance of your vehicle. Do you really want to trust the future performance of your car, or truck, to some complete stranger online? Do you really want to go through the inconvenience of sending parts back to the seller, and then waiting for a refund, all the while looking at your vehicle, sitting in the driveway, not running at all because that part you need is missing?
Great savings on used car parts can be found elsewhere
The answer to this problem is so simple, provided you live in an urban area, and that answer is your local salvage yards, places like our own All Import Auto Parts. At reputable salvage yards, you will purchase used auto parts which come with a warranty. In our case, that warranty is ninety days, and every used part we sell has been tested for reliability.
And, if a part we sell is defective, you don’t have to wait for the postal service for a refund. We are right down the road, and we are happy to make it right with our valued customers.
Find a salvage yard you trust and build a relationship
Here’s what you should do the next time you need a replacement part. Go to your nearest salvage yard, tell them what you need, and try out their product. If it is a good product, continue shopping there. Get to know the owners and staff. Build a rapport. Tell them you are into DIY car repair, and you want one place to shop at which you can trust, so you know that whatever you need, in the future, can be found and will be sold, to you, at a fair price.
We believe that approach is infinitely better than buying from some stranger over the internet.
