If you need a car part for your used vehicle, consider buying a used car part, like the ones sold at Essington Avenue Used Auto Parts. Buying a new part can be very expensive. If you’re willing to take the time to inquire about used car parts at our salvage yard, it could mean saving quite a bit of money. If you’re unsure whether or not you can trust a salvage yard for used auto parts, keep reading as we dispel three myths surrounding the used auto part world.

3 Myths About Buying Used Car Parts From a Salvage Yard

Myth #1: Used Car Parts Are Too Expensive

Some people think that salvage yard owners are simply trying to scam their customers by selling used car parts. They believe they’re trying to make as much money as possible from gullible people looking to save a buck or two. This is far from the truth. Offering used auto parts is typically only one part of their business. They may also sell quality used cars that are in good condition. Some of them buy whole vehicles for the used parts or to add to their used vehicle inventory. 

Myth #2: There Are No Guarantees

While used auto parts do not have warranties like new cars, they do come with guarantees. Each salvage yard may be different so be sure to check what their guarantees are before you make a purchase. At Essington Avenue, we guarantee all of our mechanical and electrical parts for 30 days. If the auto part fails within that 30 days, we’ll give you a full refund or exchange it for a different part if we have that part in stock.

Myth #3: Used Auto Parts Are No Good

This myth is not true across the board. While some salvage yards may not sell quality used parts, a reputable salvage yard will only stock used auto parts that are still in working condition. Yes, they are used but it doesn’t mean they have no life left. If you find a part from us that you would like to purchase, you can thoroughly inspect it before any money is exchanged. If you decide you don’t want it, no problem!
