Why You Should Invest in Quality, Affordable Used OEM Car Parts

Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or brand-approved aftermarket car parts are always the best options to choose when maintaining your vehicle. Auto body and mechanical workshop owners and even home-service motor mechanics are fully aware of this. However, there may be instances when they need to avoid the new, original versions commonly used to keep your vehicle in tip-top condition. This is when affordable, used OEM car parts through A.S.A.P. Spares provide the perfect solution.


New Equipment Manufacturer Auto Spares are the Best Solution

Any respected professional in the auto trade industry will inform you that the best solution for any vehicle maintenance or repair project is to utilise new OEM car parts. They are designed, tested and approved by the manufacturer and boast the same quality. However, in certain cases, it is simply not possible. Let’s take a look at three of these:

  • Cost Factors – Unless authorised by a reputable insurance company or covered by the vehicle’s warranty, budget is always a concern for any project, both for the workshop and the owner of the vehicle. Many of these spares are imported directly from the manufacturer and are subject to import duties and taxes which affect the cost significantly.
  • Availability – Since many of these spares are imported, they are not always available. Waiting lists for these parts may put a project on hold for weeks, if not months. Should an error occur, and the incorrect part arrives, the process might have to be repeated. These delays affect time-sensitive projects and vehicle owners could be left stranded for the duration of the repair.
  • Performance – Modern vehicle engines are high-performance power plants, regardless of CC or horse-power output, and they are susceptible to pressure changes in the motor. Connecting brand-new OEM spares to already worn, “run-in” parts could introduce pressure or performance changes within the engine resulting in older parts getting damaged. For example, the pressure from a new water pump may result in damage to an older radiator or pipes leading to and from it.

There is Always a Time and a Place for Quality Original, Used OEM Auto Spares

There are industry professionals that may advise that used car parts should be avoided since, well, they’re used. There may be various reasons for this opinion, usually because they might be encouraging alternative solutions. However, we at A.S.A.P. Spares can proudly declare that there is not only a place in the market for quality, affordable used car parts, but they are a vital link in the supply chain, keeping your vehicle spec standard.

Let’s compare the same three instances:

  • Cost Factors – When time and budget are deciding factors on a project, previously owned auto spares are the logical solution. They too have been designed, tested and approved by the manufacturer but are not subject to duties or taxes. So, you can expect to pay a fraction of the cost in comparison to new alternatives. We offer a selection of the best pre-owned Opel, Suzuki, Peugeot, Renault, Chevrolet and Citroën auto spares at unbelievably affordable prices.
  • Availability – Come along and visit us at our neatly arranged, organised scrapyard and parts allocation department in Pretoria. We carefully select our spares and only purchase and sell used parts that are from top-quality, selected suppliers or approved private sellers. However, we do not sacrifice quality for quantity. There is more than enough stock of quality parts available to satisfy even our most select customers and if we don’t have it, we will source it for you.
  • Performance – You and your vehicle’s safety are paramount, and you deserve the correct, original equipment the manufacturer intended you to have, both in and around your car. We offer quality used spares that are in line with your vehicle’s specifications and are run-in, meeting with pressure and performance ratios equivalent to the age of your vehicle, limiting undue stress on existing parts. You may even find later-model parts for your vehicle that offer additional benefits.

While there are alternatives, original new and pre-owned, or manufacturer-approved aftermarket auto spares should always be your first choice. To ensure that your vehicle remains safe for you and your loved ones as well as roadworthy, associate yourself with A.S.A.P Spares for affordable new and used, quality auto parts.
