Tips On Buying Used Car Parts

Posted By Birmingham Auto Break on 20/02/2019

Buying used car parts is a cheap alternative to buying parts from a dealer. However, when buying used car parts that you’re going to reuse for another car, there are some things you should consider before doing so. Read on to find out more.

Make Sure You Know What You’re Looking For

The last thing you want when visiting a scrap yard is to not be 100% sure what you need. You could end up spending hours and hours sifting through the inventory and end up with something not quite right. With that in mind, it’s always worth knowing exactly what you need, right down to the registration number of the car you’re using the part for. It’s a good idea to bring the old part with you so you can match it exactly.

Find Out The What The History of The Part In Question Is

Before buying used car parts, it’s imperative to know exactly where it’s been. If a part has been in a major accident, then it might not be worth the purchase and might only be in working order for a few further miles. It’s important to find out the age of the part, the mileage and if it’s being sold as used or repaired. If it’s been repaired, double check how damaged it was before the repair.

Look For Matches

If the part you’re looking for is an external piece, then it’s especially important to look for an accurate match. Otherwise, you might end up spending more money on painting the used part. If there is no way of finding a matching colour, then you might have to settle for something different, but it’s definitely worth spending a bit more time when buying used car parts.
