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.
GREAT FALLS, Mont. (PRWEB) January 28, 2008
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."
