Auto Repair And Maintenance
Auto parts sales is one of the largest industries in the world. Makes sense since almost everyone in the world has an automobile except maybe in underdeveloped countries. Some auto parts wear out rather quickly such as oil filters. Some last a little longer like brake shoes and pads. And then you have parts that thank goodness don’t wear out very often at all like transmissions or cars would be impossible to maintain cost wise.
Automotive recyclers offer great deals on used car parts. There are more recyclers out there than you might think. And their prices are hard to beat. One reason is that insurance companies can save money themselves by dropping off wrecked vehicles at a recycling yard. There are many other incentives, though, to shop from these guys.

Junk yard jewels. I have a buddy who likes to go to the junk yard to find replacement parts for his vehicles. He doesn’t always find what he wants, but he has been able to pull several starters off from some of the junkers. Some work, some don’t while others may work for awhile and then crap out a few months later. If you have plenty of time and luck is on your side then this can be an option for you.
You’ll find that some new parts need to be ordered. This may be due to a number of reasons, including assembly time or difficulty locating the part. This is often the case when it is built by a small-sized O.E.M. (Original Product Manufacturer). By contrast, you can buy used car parts from a variety of sources and often have the part ready for installation immediately.

It’s cheaper. This, should really go without saying. Buying new parts for a restoration project can be very expensive. Many older cars require spare parts that are no longer made by the manufacturer and so they have to be sourced from specialist suppliers. This can mean that they are much more expensive than the original parts and they can often be very hard to get a hold of. If the parts are too expensive it may mean that the car itself has become uneconomic to repair or restore.
