Finding used car parts for sale is as easy as doing a Google search for used car parts. You can order online, the part will be delivered to you, just as easy as ordering your favorite dish soap from Amazon.
But are you finding the best deals on used auto parts by doing it that way?
We say no! We are All Import Auto Parts, a family-owned salvage yard in Fort Worth, serving Fort Worth residents with distinction for over thirty years. In other words, we know a thing or two about purchasing used car parts. Call us if you are looking to save money on your next DIY car repair. In the meantime, we offer you this article, with information which will save you money.
You have options for used car parts
The good news for consumers is that there are options for those who are looking for used car parts. You can do the aforementioned online search, which will give you plenty of options to choose from.
In some cities, there are actually used car parts retail stores where you can shop.
And your third option, and the one we believe is your best for price, are local salvage yards, also known as wrecking yards.
Salvage yards are consistently the best deal
The industry standard, which covers approximately sixty-thousand salvage yards across the United States, is a 40% discount, on average, for used auto parts purchased from salvage yards. A 40% discount is nothing to sneeze at when it comes to car parts. It can mean savings of hundreds of dollars on big-ticket items like engines or transmissions, and even smaller items, over the course of a year or two, will offer up savings in the hundreds of dollars.
Add to that the special savings offerings which are a staple of reputable salvage yards, special deals like an additional 20% off all engine in February, or an additional 30% off all brakes in March. For a do-it-yourselfer car repair person, salvage yards are like Home Depot is to a home-repair DIYer.
Online or in-person service?
Setting the savings of hundreds of dollars aside for a moment, consider this question: do you prefer to shop online, or do you prefer to shop from someone you trust, in person? Yes, this is a convenience world and yes, online shopping is the rage. But there is still something to be said for dealing face-to-face with a business owner, and when you establish a rapport with that business owner, and when trust is established, there is no comparison to the impersonal shopping done online.
When talking about purchasing car brakes, brakes which mean the safety of yourself and your family members, wouldn’t you rather purchase those brakes from a local business owner you know and trust?
