How & Where Should You Sell Auto Parts?

Mechanics often need to rely on used auto parts for repair projects. Aside from the potential savings a mechanic can get from buying used parts, in many cases, used auto parts are one of the only ways to get your hands on a specific part. Older makes and models and especially foreign vehicles can be difficult to source parts for. If parts are only manufactured overseas and are rarer or not actively used in new vehicles, finding a new version of the part can be difficult. But where do used auto parts dealers get their parts? In this article, we will discuss how mechanics and used auto parts businesses source their parts. 

Recycling Vehicles For Parts

Eventually the cost and return on investment for fixing a car or truck is not as high as buying a new vehicle. When this happens it is very common that a vehicle is sold for scrap. Vehicles are often scrapped either due to age or damage. When a vehicle is sent to be scrapped, it might be taken apart for parts. Only the parts that are in great condition will be removed and used as used auto parts. The rest of the vehicle is often sold and recycled for scrap metal so that it can be recycled. If you have a vehicle that you are interested in recycling, you can use our online calculator to get a rough estimate of what it would be worth. 

Used Parts Sellers

Another way used parts are often sold is by vehicle owners themselves. Some at-home mechanics will remove parts from a vehicle in the garage and sell them or use them for other repair projects. While it is more common to sell an entire vehicle all at once for recycling and scrapping purposes, there are some instances where people will take a part a vehicle themselves, especially if they are aware of a specific part that might be needed for a repair project.
