We all love our cars, and despite the increasingly high cost of owning a car, we reluctantly pay to have the privilege of having your own car. Tax, insurance, fuel and, of course, maintenance are all part and parcel of car ownership, and when a part malfunctions, and they do, you have the high price of a replacement. We all know how much it costs to order a new radiator or alternator, and we aren’t talking about pocket change here, yet the very part you need is probably sitting on a car breaker’s shelf, all ready to be fitted.
When a car has reached the end of its life, through a heavy collision or just old age, the car breaker will strip all the components that are still usable, especially major items, such as:
- Water pumps
If you went to see a rated car breakers in Brighton, for example, all of the above components would be reconditioned, which means they have been cleaned, stripped down and carefully rebuilt. The breakers yard would issue you with a warranty, which might be as long as 6 months, and you would make a huge saving when compared to the cost of a new component.
If you called up your nearest car breaker and asked if they had a gearbox for a 2006 Ford Fiesta, for example, they could give you an answer within seconds, as all their components have been catalogued and are ready to be fitted.
Forget paying the high prices for new car parts and give your local car breaker a call, which will save you a lot of money
