It is extremely common for a car to break down and need a part replaced. Most car owners have already experienced this, and those who haven't, will do so at some point in the future. Many car owners are also aware that cheap auto parts are available if one knows where to look for them. However, this is where most people's understanding of cheap auto parts available at discount prices ends. Either most people end up paying premium prices for the parts, or trust that the cheap used car part being installed by the mechanic is indeed the best deal available. But is this true?
Garages set out your bill for repairs by stating the cost of the parts, and the cost of the labour to fit them. As we all know, garages make most of their money with the labour, and even car parts costing just a few pounds can end up costing you several hundred pounds once you have added on the labour costs.
Of course we are not talking everything on the car, but selected car parts that have been upgraded or sourced from a cheaper supplier on a continuous basis to either improve the car or build it cheaper. The results are that every part now needs a serial number or unique reference part number, which sometimes is very hard to locate. Often the best way to match up your car part id to take the part off and take it to the dealership and so match it with a new one. Unfortunately you cannot do that if you choose to buy your car part online.
When shopping for the part, check your local mechanic or car supply store. Many parts are relatively inexpensive. The true cost comes in when you need to pay for the labor to have the part installed. Used car parts are often available at a low price at these locations.
