Which of the following scenarios can you relate to: your car is making some really strange noises which you can no longer ignore; you are not sure how much longer you can keep your broken bumper tied to the front of the vehicle; your vehicle keeps breaking down or was damaged in an accident? Depending on the age of your vehicle, you could encounter one or more of these realities and you may then be faced with the dilemma – “Should I invest in brand new or used car parts?”
The term, “used car parts,” may well have you breaking out in a cold sweat thanks to the number of charlatans and scammers out there. But don’t believe every scaremongering tale you hear. Here at EeziParts, we only source quality inspected and genuine second-hand auto parts and accessories from our vetted panel of suppliers that also tick the affordability box.
Everyone knows that genuine brand new car parts tend to be very pricey, plus there may be a long waiting period if they are on backorder from an overseas manufacturer. But once you are familiar with the industry lingo and tips for choosing second-hand parts, you are ready to embrace genuine or OEM((Original Equipment Manufacturer) used car parts as a savvy and affordable solution.
Let’s explore 4 ‘Eezi’ reasons why you should consider buying used car parts when your vehicle can no longer get past ‘GO:’
#1 They are readily available
The used car parts market in South Africa is huge – making the second hand route a viable and legitimate option. Most of us don’t have another alternative if a part is not available and it will take a few weeks to arrive. That is why EeziParts exists; we saw a need in the auto industry for competitive pricing and accurate sourcing of accessible genuine second-hand car parts that are vehicle specific – nationwide. We also guarantee that once we have sourced the part, it will be delivered to you within 72 hours!
#2 They are much more affordable
It is worth belabouring this point. Fuel price hikes aside, keeping your vehicle running is an expensive exercise. Depending on the car part required, you could potentially save between 20% and 80% when buying used car parts. That is a huge advantage. But you don’t want to trust just any ‘Tom, Dick or Harry.’ You need a trusted service provider that not only validates the parts – confirming the quality, model and VIN number – but also ensures that the relevant police clearance is provided and regularly performs site inspections on its selected suppliers. (You deserve this peace of mind and guarantee).
#3 They are as good as new
Refurbished OEM parts are the real deal – still carrying the vehicle manufacturer’s logo. They are just as reliable as their brand new counterparts but are a better-value alternative. And they generally come with a warranty. This is a great selling point for genuine used car parts compared to ‘generic’ aftermarket parts.
#4 They are a sustainable solution
By investing in premium-quality genuine second-hand car parts, you are recycling car parts and diminishing the demand for excess production of new parts – making them a sustainable and more environmentally-friendly option. (Elon Musk will be so proud!). 😉
