Does your car have a worn-out part that needs to be replaced immediately? Are you a vintage car collector who is searching for a hard-to-find part to upgrade your ride? Are you trying to restore a classic car that your dad or grandfather has just handed down to you? Whatever your reason may be for needing some car parts, in those situations, you have two options: to buy a brand new or used one.
As for the first option – what more is there to ask other than the price? Buyers would assume its quality and durability because well, it’s brand new. But you know technically, even if it’s never been used, that doesn’t guarantee its performance. And if you’ll opt to buy from the dealership to get that assurance of quality, don’t let us say ‘we told you so’ because you’ll most definitely be shocked to know their prices. Don’t get us wrong though. If you have all the means to buy directly from your dealer or brand manufacturer and you really don’t mind spending on it, then by all means – you are indeed lucky because you don’t need to stress out on it that much.
On the other hand, trying out and buying used auto parts might actually surprise you. Little do you know that buying those actually entails more benefits than you think. So before we get ahead of ourselves here, let us provide you with the top reasons to convince you that buying used car parts is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make:
Affordability. This one’s a no-brainer. It won’t make sense if second-hand Aussie auto parts would have higher price tags, right? But apart from them being just easy on our pockets, it is also a smart move (especially for the first-timers). By opting for the cheap auto spares first, you’ll sort of have an allowance for trying out which kinds of car parts are of quality and are best for your car and your situation. If in case the worst happens and you have made a wrong choice, it wouldn’t hurt so bad because you have only purchased it at a fraction of a price. But then, if you try them first, and you are actually impressed with the results? Then you can now look forward to more savings!
Tested and Proven Quality. Again, used doesn’t automatically mean they are of poor quality. When you’re buying used car parts from reputable suppliers, the parts are first refurbished to ‘like new’ condition and then tested (again and again) to make sure that they are of best quality. Especially today, when there are lots of car wreckers like Advance Car Wreckers, the used auto parts usually now meet the OEM or Original Equipment Manufacturer standards. With that, you’ll be more assured that that specific part is simply made to fit your car’s make and model.
Availability. As mentioned earlier, there are now more suppliers of affordable and quality used auto parts because of the growing car wrecking & recycling industry. Because cars are the most recycled products in the whole world, it is now easier to find auto parts online and offline. They are available almost everywhere. Whereas with newly manufactured parts, there are chances that the one you’re looking for is out of stock or worse, discontinued.
Finding discontinued and specialised auto parts. This reason or benefit is one that car collectors and enthusiasts really love about buying from used car parts suppliers. We know how easy it is to go to a nearby auto parts shop and just get a car part directly from their shelves. But what if you’re looking for a car part for your vintage car? What if your car is a limited edition or a specialised model? Well, you need not waste your time on waiting for the manufacturer to make a special one just for you, because that’s not going to happen. You can immediately head to the offline or online auto parts suppliers that sell refurbished used and vintage parts, you’ll have more chances of finding what you need.
Help reduce waste and conserve natural resources. By patronising the purchase and use of used car parts, you are already contributing to helping the environment. If all parts of old and used cars aren’t recycled and reused, all of those will just end up in landfills. In the same way, if there isn’t a demand for used car parts, the manufacturers will have no choice but to make more brand new parts. Meaning, they’ll need to use up more natural resources than ever. You can help reduce pollution and save Mother Earth just by depending on used car parts.
It is really frustrating when you can’t use your vehicle or can’t seem to finish your project just because you haven’t found that part you need. So if after reading the aforementioned benefits, you are finally convinced that buying used auto parts is worth giving a shot, then give us ring now.
