Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 20, 2012
Used transmissions for cars and trucks are one of the most popular auto parts that are sold online. Dealerships, scrap yards and junkyards have used the Internet to purchase transmissions for years. Average consumers also have the ability to purchase automotive transmissions, but not every driver knows where to find quality transmissions. The used transmissions superstore, http://www.GotTransmissions.com, has now eliminated the cost of shipping transmissions in the U.S. Every transmission that is ordered online is now shipped free of charge and is scheduled for delivery within one to four days. GotTransmissions.com has previously been the secret weapon for mechanics and body shop owners and now average consumers can take part in the reduced savings.
One of the concerns with buying a used transmission for sale is the amount of mileage that has accumulated. With more cars and trucks pushing over the 100,000 mile limit, transmissions are often overworked and not in the best condition when sold used. “We only buy transmissions that come through our network of trusted associates,” said Bill Mann, Purchasing Manager at GotTransmissions.com. “Many of our transmissions are actually pull outs or swaps from leased vehicles or dealer rentals and have lower than average miles on them,” added Mann. Transmissions usually fail from a combination of irregular fluid and filter changes or gear breakage. A big challenge for transmission sellers online is having accurate photographs and descriptions for every transmission that is placed into warehouse inventory.
While sales of new cars and trucks have slowed in 2012, the used car market has remained strong due partly to economic feasibility. “Some of our customers cannot afford to purchase a new vehicle so they are buying a used transmission to get some extra life out of their current vehicle,” said Marsha Brown, Customer Service Manager at GotTransmissions.com. “We take pride in helping our customers save money since every dollar counts these days,” Brown added. Many used cars are inspected by mechanics before they are sold on small dealership lots, but the transmissions are not something that is often changed. Buying a used transmission online is one way that some consumers are stretching their used car dollars to the max.
The variety in the used transmission market is plentiful and the quality can vary sharply. Some sellers choose to offer transmissions exclusively on auction sites like eBay or through websites like Craigslist. GotTransmissions.com recently improved its warehouse storage to be able to handle millions of dollars in transmissions at one time. Several delivery bays for tractor-trailers are now open to receive shipments of used transmissions in bulk. Many top automaker transmissions such as Ford, Chevy, Chrysler, Toyota and GM line the warehouse of this trusted online retailer as it prepares for the influx of requests from its free shipping in the U.S. transmission sales campaign.
Started in the spring of 2007, GotTransmissions.com set out to be the number one transmission dealer on the Internet. The struggles witnessed in the auto industry have not affected GotTransmissions.com and sales have been rising during every quarter since its inception. As an innovative used transmission dealer, this company is poised to remain at the top of search engine listings due strictly to demand and consumer popularity.
