A vehicle of any kind can be a large and expensive purchase and ongoing expense. However, there are a heap of ways to reduce vehicle maintenance costs. We take a look at the top three ways to reduce the cost of maintaining your car. Our reputation for sourcing the perfect spare parts precedes us, and the team at Perth Parts also provide warranties and guarantees on the parts we sell; giving our clients extra peace of mind. We are open not just to the general public but to professionals as well. One way to reduce the ongoing costs of maintaining your vehicle is to use spare or refurbished parts instead of brand new.
Servicing your vehicle is a small short term cost when compared to the cost of repairing a vehicle that was not regularly serviced and maintained. Prevention, in the long run, is more cost effective than curing ails of an engine that has not been cared for. Not only does regular maintenance ensures your vehicle’s major components like the brakes and steering are operating safely it can extend the lifespan of your vehicle. Regular servicing of your vehicle also helps retain the value of the vehicle. So not only does it save you money in the short term, but it could also mean more cash in your pocket come time to sell.
Use Recycled or Refurbished Parts
When your mechanic lets you know you need replacement parts or that some components of your vehicle need replacing in the future, use the Perth Parts online parts search to find a refurbished or recycled part to suit your needs at a fraction of the cost.
We cater to both general public searching for parts, but also mechanics and other professionals across the industry. Using refurbished parts is a benefit for the environment as well as your hip pocket in both the long and short term. Refurbished or recycled parts will do the same task and are often almost brand new but because they are taken from another salvaged vehicle they will be a fraction of the cost of a brand new part.
Fuel only ever seems to be getting more and more expensive and is one of the biggest ongoing costs for motorists across the country. There are a bunch of apps available now that let you check or lock in fuel prices at a cheaper rate to help save you money, so it pays to at least check out apps like GasBuddy or the BP or 7/11 Apps in case you can save a few dollars.
The way you drive has an impact not only on the different components on your vehicle but also its fuel economy. Whilst the vehicle make and model does strongly impact the fuel efficiency, driving smoothly and without placing too much stress on the engine (revving) will increase your efficiency and cut down the cost of maintenance in the long run. Also make sure you are not carrying any unnecessary loads and your tyres have the correct pressure as all of these can add up for your fuel efficiency.
We all rely on vehicles of various types to get through our days, which makes maintenance of our main vehicle really important. Making the smart decision to replace parts or panels on your vehicle with second hand, refurbished or recycled parts is a great way to make sure your vehicle doesn’t leave a giant hole in your budget.
