Many consumers dismiss used car parts, because they believe or they are told that the products do not have the same warranties that a new part would have
RICHMOND, Va. (PRWEB) October 7, 2008
Woodfin offers the following tips to consumers buying a used car part:
First, consumers should buy used auto parts that are guaranteed by a warranty. "Many consumers dismiss used car parts, because they believe or they are told that the products do not have the same warranties that a new part would have," said Woodfin. "That is not universally true. At EverDrive, we work with our suppliers to deliver high-quality parts and all our parts include at no extra cost a three-year unlimited mileage warranty that even covers labor." Second, used auto parts are now available online and are accessible to consumers nationwide. Automotive parts recycling is today a $10 billion per year industry, and most recycling businesses use a computerized inventory system that allows them to quickly search for any part a customer needs. Companies such as EverDrive have developed relationships with parts recyclers nationwide, giving their customers access to more than 1 million parts via an easy to use website and the benefit of direct delivery to their doorstep. Third, used auto parts are also available at mainstream national auto parts retailers. Used parts can be ordered at any of the thousands of retail locations operated by Pep Boys, O'Reilly's and AutoZone. Retail locations with service facilities can also install the used parts or the auto enthusiast can purchase the part and take it home to install. Fourth, a used car part makes original equipment parts more affordable and may increase the resale value of the vehicle. These used parts are Original Equipment Manufacturer Parts. "Because of the available inventory, consumers can match parts for cars that have been in the marketplace for some time," said Woodfin. EverDrive's inventory includes used car parts for makes and models as far back as 1980. Finally, purchasing guaranteed used parts helps the environment. By reducing the mining and processing of natural resources and eliminating production of new parts, consumers who request used parts for vehicle repair already help save an estimated 85 million barrels of oil annually.
