Have you recently experienced a car breakdown or got car parts that are hanging on by a thread? Visiting your local wreckers in Perth could help you get spare parts quicker and cheaper than ordering in from overseas.
If you’ve never considered buying from an auto wreckers, here’s when buying local can work out to be much cheaper and convenient for you.
A part you want is difficult to get and has a long wait
While shopping online for spare parts seems like the easy option, the part you want may be sourced from the other side of the world and could be more costly and time-consuming to deliver than you might think.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has shown, last-minute lockdowns and the continued uncertainty of when borders will open or shut again has led to longer than expected wait times for delivery; and if you desperately need parts for your car, you might not be back on the road for a while.
Before you look online, try paying a visit to your local wreckers; you may be surprised by how many rare, quality parts at much more reasonable prices are waiting to be found just around the corner.
You’re away from home and can’t get to a car centre
It’s every traveller’s worst nightmare to break down while on the road, and if it turns out that your car is in desperate need of replacement parts, your best option is likely to be finding the nearby wreckers.
While you may be used to getting all your car parts from the car dealership who sold you your vehicle, auto wreckers take in all sorts of cars and therefore have a much wider range of parts available – so if the dealers don’t have something in stock or need to order things in with a long wait time, the wreckers can quickly find and install replacement parts for you to get you up and running as soon as possible.
You’re not just helping yourself – you’re also helping the environment
One of the best reasons to buy from a wrecker is that you’re reusing parts instead of driving even more demand for new parts that require a lot of energy and resources to produce.
Every car that comes through a wreckers is carefully inspected for parts that can be salvaged, while the remaining scrap metal is melted down and reused again.
So, in addition to saving more money and time, you’ll also be doing your bit to reduce our overall impact on the environment.
