So you found a great deal on the perfect used auto part from your local salvage yard, you need to also consider and arrange installation. Here are a few tips for helping to make sure that process goes smoothly.
The most important tip about installing any used auto parts and especially used mechanical parts that you have invested a lot of money in, hire an experienced repair shop to handle the installation for you! Today’s automobiles are sometimes very complex and complicated to repair, if you are not an experienced mechanic you can do more harm than good. Hopefully, unless you are a top rated mechanic, you took your car or truck to a trusted repair shop to verify the problems that you are having with your vehicle. The last thing that you want to do is buy a used engine or transmission that you do not need. If you do not have a personal mechanic or auto repair shop that you prefer, browse through the links on this page to find a reputable repair shop near you. Also, most local salvage yards have a list of auto repair shops that they trust to install their products. Some salvage yards even have an “in house” installation program with expert mechanics on site.
The old saying that “you get what you pay for” is sometimes true when getting used auto parts installed. While an installation quote may “sound” like a great deal, it may turn out to cost you more money in the long run because of mistakes or inexperience. Most repair shops use industry standards for hours required to install a part as well as the hourly rate charged so they will all be in the same ball park with their quotes. It’s fine to shop around for the best pricing but make sure that you are only getting quotes from established and experienced auto repair shops. Also, ask if the price includes the supplies, fluids, gaskets etc. required to complete the job.
Make sure that you read the instructions or fine print on your used auto parts warranty and follow any required procedures or guidelines during installations. Replacing today’s used auto parts sometimes requires that certain procedures and steps be followed to function properly. Again, protect your investment by using an experienced mechanic.
