Car parts are expensive. And don’t think for a moment that all parts of a similar type cost more or less the same. Oh no, the agents’ prices can vary wildly from brand to brand. The 2019 Kinsey Report again shed some light on new cars’ parts prices in South Africa and it makes for some interesting reading. For example, a pollen filter can be as cheap as just over R30 for an entry-level city hatchback but over R3000 on an expensive vehicle from a premium brand. That is 100 times more expensive! Similarly, a front brake disc can vary in price from around R700 for an entry-level car to over R6000 for a premium brand – almost tenfold. Clearly, all car parts are not made equal and it can be very difficult to know how much something is supposed to cost, so always do your homework.
One thing that is certain is that a used part is cheaper than a new part and sometimes you simply don’t need a new one. If a door mirror, wiper arm, or quarter-light window is still perfectly serviceable once it has been stripped from an accident-damaged vehicle, why buy a brand-new one at many times the price? And if you can find some of these car parts brand-new at other suppliers and their quality is still excellent, that would give you even more options. That is exactly what you can do at A.S.A.P. Spares if you drive a Chevrolet, Citroën, Opel, Peugeot, Renault, or Suzuki. We sell both new and used spars for all six these brands.
For some people, half the fun is browsing through our well-organised scrapyard looking for the car parts they need from amongst the wrecks. Once you have found what you are looking for, our friendly staff will help you strip the spare from the wreck. We buy fresh stock frequently and if you have a wreck that you can do nothing with and you cannot claim for from your insurance for some reason (or it is uninsured), we can take it off your hands for a fair price.
Our establishment has been in Pretoria West since 2001 and we have built up an excellent reputation thanks to our wide variety of new and used car parts and our excellent customer service. We will happily exchange a faulty part and we pride ourselves on our ethical and transparent dealings with our customers. Pay us a visit today or request a part online.
