Used Auto Parts
by Wendy Lloyd
Gone are the days of used auto parts residing in "junk yards". Today, your quality used auto and truck parts are dismantled in automotive recycling facilities. The best yards sell warranted parts, ship globally, have access to computerized parts inventory systems, store all hard parts in warehouses to prevent rusting, rack body panels individually to prevent damage, clean and test parts for quality control, and recycle oil, freon, gas, anti-freeze and other hazardous fluids.
What Do You
Have To Lose?
Money - If You Buy New
Consumers save at least 50 % off the price of new parts when they buy used.
We know that one customers purchase will not save the environment. But consider this: where will landfills be if autos and trucks are not reused? Dismantlers recycle over 8 million cars a year,which equates to 2 million tons of cast iron, 7 million tons of steel and 500,000 tons of aluminum. But there is more. This industry's primary business is to sell used parts; thus saving the energy and resources necessary to make new parts or to melt the metal for re-use.
In years past, the used part you bought may have been on its last legs, marked down and available for 10-year-old cars. Not anymore. For example, top of the line, late model vehicles damaged in the rear have terrific, like- new hard parts and sheet metal available. And that is what you can expect when you contact Bodyline Auto Recyclers.
