When it comes to car maintenance, being mechanically inclined is a big bonus. If you can do basic car care tasks without taking your vehicle into the auto shop, you’ll save a good deal of money in the short and long term.
If you want to increase your money-saving prowess even more, get the used auto parts you’ll need from a reputable salvage yard like Orthodox Auto Company. When you buy used car parts, you save money and spend it at a local business instead of overpaying a major car company for the same piece.
Simple repairs (like changing out a defunct alternator or fixing a busted taillight) on your car are a snap when you hit up your local salvage yard for supplies. Our vast selection of new and used auto parts is bound to have the piece you need to get your car back in shape.
There are some repairs, however, that call for new parts instead of old ones. Some car parts (brake pads, rotors, etc.) are meant to wear out and should be replaced with brand new pieces to ensure the safety of your car. If you change out a rotor with another worn-down part, you’ll be right back at the salvage yard in no time.
Of course, for large scale projects that require specialized tools, it’s best to leave the heavy lifting to the professionals. Don’t attempt any repairs or replacements you don’t feel comfortable with, or you may end up spending a lot more money than if you had taken your car into the shop in the first place.
For your next car project, come out to the salvage yard at Orthodox Auto Company. Call us today at (215) 332-3520 – our enormous collection of salvaged vehicles and used car parts are waiting for you to give them a new home.
