They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure and nowhere is this truer than in the case of scrapyards. Full of “scrap” such yards may be, but it’s the kind people queue for. The reason? There are a few, the most important of which is the often-exorbitant prices of new car spares. This has created a huge market for serviceable used spares and the biggest winner is the consumer. They can still get hold of the parts they need, but at much-reduced prices. At the same time, some parts recycling is going on, so fewer of those land in landfills after a single use. Especially the ones that are still perfectly good for another few years’ service in a car.
You Have A Choice
Some scrapyards only sell used parts and that is well and good but we believe you should have a choice. Therefore, we also sell new parts at significantly lower prices than you would pay for them through the franchised agents. Some safety-critical or very affordable parts are best bought new, but who cares if a mirror, seat adjuster, cubbyhole lid, or quarter window is used if it is still in excellent condition? In fact, buying used at greatly discounted prices is one of the only ways to justify keeping some old cars on the road without their owners feeling as if they are spending new-car money trying to keep an old banger going.
Scrapyards Are for Wrecks
Yes, and where do scrapyards like ours get these car wrecks? From people like you. So, it might happen that your car has been irreparably damaged due to a mechanical failure or accident and you cannot claim from your insurance. This might be because the car was simply too old to insure or because it was only insured for fire, theft, and third party. The bottom line is that you end up with a wreck you can do nothing with. We can offer you a fair price on it because we are always looking for wrecks from which we can strip salvageable spares to sell to our customers. In our case, these are only wrecks of our six specialist brands: Opel, Chevrolet, Citroën, Suzuki, Peugeot, and Renault.
Quality and Peace of Mind
Unlike so many spares shops and scrapyards, we are not here today, gone tomorrow. We opened our doors all the back in 2001 and we have been serving the public with top-quality new and used car spares for the best part of two decades. We have enlisted the services of SEESA to ensure that all our dealings with the public conform to the requirements of the CPA, so they can have complete confidence in our honesty and transparency. If you buy a faulty part from us, you can simply exchange it.
There might be quite a few parts shops and scrapyards in Gauteng, but A.S.A.P. Spares in Pretoria West is a cut above the rest in terms of the quality and variety we offer for our six specialist brands. Pay us a visit today and see for yourself.
