Why buy used parts?

     People are often surprised to learn that the automobile is the most recycled consumer product in the world.  Each year millions of tires, tons of valuable metals, and  millions of gallons of anti-freeze, oil, and gasoline are recycled and reused.  The efforts of automotive recyclers not only preserve natural resources and conserve landfill space but they also reduce air and water pollution that occur during the manufacture of new automotive parts.  An estimated 85 million barrels of oil a year that would have been used in the manufacturing of new or replacement parts is saved each year.   Recycling vehicles provides enough steel to produce almost 13 million new vehicles annually.   Automotive recyclers provide wholesale and retail customers quality parts that sell for up to 50% less than the comparable new parts.  Automotive recycling decreases insurance rates by purchasing inoperative vehicles from insurance companies, thus allowing for recovery of financial losses.   Automotive recyclers must abide by stringent local and national regulations on dealing with waste generated by salvaged automobiles.  Most of our parts come with a standard ninety day warranty, and extended warranties are available.   Next time you need a part for your vehicle consider purchasing a recycled part.  They are good for the environment, your car, and your wallet.
