Used Auto Parts vs. New Auto Parts

October 22, 2015

In today’s economy, it can be tempting to ignore the noises your car is making. That noise could end up costing you a pretty penny if you take your car into an auto body shop. But, with a little research and know-how, you can find new and used auto parts to fix the problem yourself.

So, which is better, a new or used part to repair your vehicle?

There are many times when you will want to use a new part on your vehicle. Parts like brake pads and shoes, windshield wipers and airbags are always something you will want to buy new. Other parts like alternators, transmissions, carburetors, motors and body parts like doors, quarter panels and hoods can be costly when purchased new or when you take your car into a body shop, so buying quality used parts can save you a ton of money.

Salvage yards are a great place to look for deals on used auto parts.

Many reputable salvage yards have clean yards and easy-to-find parts. Not finding the part you are looking for? Many salvage yards can tell you about interchanges or comparable part options for almost any car on the road, helping you find less costly alternatives. Many salvage yards also have good return policies on parts, whether it be to exchange one part for another or refund the price of your purchase. So, if it does not work or fit, you can bring it back as long as you have your receipt.

Another great reason to pull used parts to repair your vehicle is used auto parts are more environmentally friendly.

When you buy new parts and as more new parts are needed, the process to make the parts uses more valuable resources and creates more greenhouse gas emissions. When you pick a used auto part, you are eliminating the process of making a new part and are recycling an old part that will make your car run better for less than half the cost of a new part.

At GO Pull-It, we care about the quality of the used parts you are pulling and offer a 30-day exchange/return policy and limited warranty program. If you are not 100 percent satisfied with the part you purchased, you can bring it back with your original receipt and exchange the part or have your money refunded, no questions asked.
