TruckPartsInventory.com's Used Truck Parts - Recycling A New Green Initiative?

Share Article

The last few years have seen an explosion in the popularity of environmental concern. Prior to the year 2000, concern for the environment was not on the radar for most people. Eyebrows were raised when a person would go into a grocery store with their own reusable bags and opt not to receive traditional plastic or paper bags that typically end up in the garbage. How does this apply to heavy duty truck parts?

Salvage yards have been dismantling wrecked trucks and reusing the used truck parts that are good. Even if the part was a little damaged, the heavy duty truck parts can be rebuilt and re-used in another truck.

    It is now trendy to recycle.

But is recycling really such a new practice? Not so says owner of TruckPartsInventory.com a locator of used truck parts, Scott Tetz, "The people in the trucking industry have been recycling heavy duty truck parts for decades." It is the trucking industry, Tetz argues, that pioneered the practice.

When asked how, Tetz explained, "Salvage yards have been dismantling wrecked trucks and reusing the used truck parts that are good. Even if the part was a little damaged, the heavy duty truck parts can be rebuilt and re-used in another truck."

Tetz goes on to say, "For the longest time there has been a negative stigma attached to used truck parts. People have the idea that these parts are inferior to new ones. Not only does it help the environment, it helps the pocketbook of the consumer."

It is cheaper to purchase a used part than it is to buy new. One consumer went to his local dealership and found the part he needed for his truck. He then went to a salvage yard and found the same part for 60% less than the cost of a new one!

"We've seen a significant number of people requesting used parts just because they can't swallow the cost of new. TruckPartsInventory.com has tools for those who want and need to find used parts."

But as the cost of new parts keep rising, more and more people are turning to used parts. "It is the new black to be green," says Tetz, "by purchasing salvage parts, not only are you saving money, you are helping the environment as well."
