Auto Salvage Yards – Money Saving

By: LoydMartin

Auto Salvage yards have been around as long as cars in some form or the other. They have been saving money for motorists for many a years by providing good quality parts for your vehicles.

Whether you drive a four door luxury sedan, a streamlined speed machine or a heavy duty SUV, repairing your vehicle when it is damaged can be expensive. Parts costs are a huge factor in many repairs.

With recessionary times around, your local Auto Wrecking Yard has never been a better place to help you save hundreds of dollars on auto repairs. You can find numerous Auto Salvage yards in your state to help you find the parts you need to fit your vehicle.

Most parts purchased at a Auto Salvage Yard average 50% to 75% less than purchasing directly from a main auto dealer. Used auto parts are also many dollars less than Spurious parts (spurious parts – non original parts).

You can also be confident that the used auto parts you purchase will also fit perfectly on your car first time and every time. Spurious parts are known to have issues with fitment as they are only replicas of the original parts and everybody knows a copy is never as good as the original. So the question is why compromise?

So you have your parts what next? In Short you have two options you can go once you have gone to your local Auto Salvage Yard and have purchased the necessary used auto parts that you require.

The most common for people who buy used auto parts is to fit them themselves. Most auto’s will purchase the parts they need, strip off the old broken parts and fit the used auto parts at home. This is the most cost effective way of repairing or changing your vehicle.

The second option is to bring the used auto parts and your vehicle to a qualified mechanic and get them to fit the parts for you. This has the advantage of significantly reducing your overall cost of repairing your car, as you generally will only be paying for the mechanics labour. Some people will drop their vehicle into a mechanic ask for a quote for work needed, go out and purchase the used auto parts from the quote then give them to the mechanic to fit (this is a great way of doing it and seeing the money saving opportunities)
