Recycled Parts are perfectly safe
Recycled Parts are perfectly safe BLOG07/05/2020

Have you been searching for parts for your vehicle to no avail? Or the parts you do find are cost prohibitive or are low quality knock offs? Maybe it’s time to reconsider the high-quality recycled parts on offer at Perth Parts. Recycled Parts sound like they might be lacking in the safety department, or may malfunction, costing you more in the long run. This is a common myth we are here to debunk. Recycled parts are as safe as brand new, they just came from a vehicle that could no longer use them.


The Perth Parts team only recover working, safe and reliable parts from wrecks and this is what we offer our clients. Our team would never put unsafe parts on our shelves, and we pride ourselves on the outstanding records for customer satisfaction our dedicated team have achieved. So why should you consider using recycled parts in your vehicle? Read on, and we will fill you in on all the important facts.


First and foremost is the cost. The cost of brand-new parts is often economically unviable and its then we switch to inferior parts or cheap knockoffs. Recycled parts allow you to repair your vehicle with the right replacement parts made specifically for your vehicle, instead of cheaper parts that are made to fit most models; and your hip pocket wont suffer as harsher shock.


The parts salvaged in the Perth Parts yard are still in perfect working order, but were attached to an otherwise written off vehicle. This doesn’t just concern parts, we also take panels as well, so whilst all the damage may be the right side of the vehicle, there’s nothing wring with the left and we will salvage everything we can from each vehicle.


Once your vehicle gets to a certain age, the manufacturer may no longer make the parts that fit your vehicle, instead catering to the younger and more popular models. Newer model parts may not fit your vehicle properly and this is where recycled parts are real winners. Not only are you replacing a part like for like, you are also keeping that part from ending up in landfill and by creating a demand for recycled parts, you are reducing the need to manufacture new products, both of which have a positive impact on the environment.


If you have a significantly older vehicle, or are restoring a vintage car, recycled parts are a fantastic option as often the part you are looking for is exorbitantly priced or no longer manufactured and you need a second hand part. At Perth Parts we have an online inventory to browse and we offer country wide shipping.


Perth Parts have a massive selection of items to restore the reliability and performance of your vehicle in almost all aspects and as the leading spare parts retailer in Perth and surrounding areas, we can help you find what you need; we can even ship it across Australia. If you cannot find your replacement part, contact our team today on (08) 9209 3900 and let us help you find the part you need. We stock an extensive collection of parts across a range of makes from Dodge to Ford, Jeep to Nissan and numerous models from each range and we are constantly updating our collections.

Cars are not built to sit around and gather dust. If you go away for holidays, you ask someone to look after your car for you or you at least ask someone to start it every few days. This keeps the fluids running through the engine and stops them from settling and causing your engine to seize.

Spare parts are not a thing of the past, more and more customers, including mechanics and servicing workshops are sourcing original parts for their vehicles over cheap and often universal parts. Why? There are many reasons, however the key reason is viability.

Fun Fact: a large portion, around 90%, of every vehicle on Australian Roads is able to be recycled. Most of the individual components of a vehicle are able to be recycled, usually, if the part is in good working order. You might be able to scoop up a bargain at your local spare parts specialists and auto wreckers, Perth Parts, servicing the whole country from a warehouse in Perth. Reusing spare parts, whether you are picking up a new transmission, or a body panel has a secondary benefit. Not only are you saving money, you are also helping the environment by reducing demand on manufacturers for the brand-new part. READ MORE
