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.
You are also more likely to get a genuine part for your vehicle, instead of an inferior product that may suit your car, but not be quite right for it. For the life span of your vehicle, it’s always a better idea to stick to genuine parts as much as you can, and Perth Parts can help save you some of the cost involved. You’re also keeping the vehicles out of the landfill, which is a great thing for the local environment.
So, what are some of the other positive reasons for opting for recycled parts from Perth Parts? Read on, we have it all covered.
So many different natural resources go into making a new car. With an average of 14 million tonnes of scrap metal being recycled each year, we can save in excess of 1100 kilos of iron ore each year, per tonne recycled. Not only this, we reduce the greenhouse gases and carbon footprint of coal plants, one of the largest emissions contributors. Recycling the steel is also easier on manufacturers as it requires much lower levels of energy to melt the steel down and remold it than it does to mine it and transport.
The team at Perth Parts also supports our local and national mechanical partners. If you have a budget-conscious customer and they request a recycled or more cost-effective option for their replacement parts, simply give our team a buzz and we can sort you out with a price you and your customers will be over the moon about.
Buying brand new parts usually puts a dent in the budget, buying cheaper parts that are a generic brand made to suit most vehicles can end up costing you more in the long run. Inferior parts can not only last significantly less time than the original parts, but they can also damage your vehicle in the long run. Whether you’re replacing the part more frequently than you would a genuine part, or it causes other mechanical issues, some you may not see at first.
Having said this, some parts are more important to replace with genuine or new products. The last thing you want is dodgy brakes, but your windshield wipers are a different story, where non-genuine parts are perfectly fine.
No one goes out to purchase inferior parts intentionally, sometimes the parts are really well disguised and an unsuspecting everyday person might not be able to tell the difference. This is why you should purchase your parts from a trusted source, like Perth Parts.
