A&P Auto Parts Used Auto Parts Guide

Are you in need of auto parts for your car but fearful of how much it’s going to hurt your wallet? Throughout the lifespan of a car, there will be necessary maintenance and repairs to ensure its performance. These include regular oil changes, brake replacement, and even rebuilding the engine. Unfortunately, some of these repairs may require expensive parts, which could seriously impact your wallet. Even if you don’t require a complete overhaul of your engine, the costs of these minor repairs add up.

Seeing a need to provide customers with an affordable solution to find quality auto parts, A&P Auto Parts was created. We have helped our loyal customer base find the used auto parts they need for more than 35 years. We have created this guide to educate our customers on our process as well as provide information on used parts as a whole. Look no further if you need to buy and sell used auto parts online.

Why Buy Used Auto Parts?

When you buy used auto parts from A&P Auto Parts, you are not buying parts that just came from a landfill. Used vehicle owners sell their cars to us for cash, and then our dismantling team gets to work, using green best practices to recycle the car and restore its various auto parts.

For those who don’t know, our remanufactured parts are the product of an extensive process. Parts recovered from a recycled automobile are first disassembled and then they are cleaned and examined for wear or breakage. Any components that are deemed unfit are replaced with new or rebuilt parts. The remanufactured part is then reassembled and tested. The end result is used auto parts that meet or exceed the original capabilities of the part.

Each part is covered by our very customer-friendly warranty, which guarantees that any part you buy at A&P Auto Parts will work as promised. If you are thinking about purchasing used auto parts but still haven’t made a decision, here are a few reasons why you might want to consider going used:

Affordability: The main draw of used parts for many of our customers is affordability. Remanufactured parts are much cheaper than new parts and perform just as well.

Availability: If you have an older car, finding parts for it might be difficult as well as costly. By buying used parts from a qualified supplier like A&P Auto Parts, a motorist can find the parts he or she needs more quickly and at a reduced rate.

Environmentally Friendly: In most cases, we can salvage auto parts from a used car, so the entire car doesn’t end up landfilled. This limits the amount of waste put into the environment.

Convenience: It might take time to find a used part for your motor. Not only is time wasted, but this could make the repair cost more in the end as well. A&P Auto Parts streamlines the search process, so motorists can find the parts they need to get their cars back on the road.

How Does Our Online Search Process Work?

If you know the specific part you’re looking for, finding it at A&P Auto Parts is very simple through our used cars search tool. You will be asked to fill out a form with a few fields about your car and the part type you’re looking for. Therefore, it’s important to know the year, manufacturer, and model of your vehicle as well as the specific part type before you begin your search.

Once you answer all of the fields and click search, the search engine will look for your car in our expansive inventory of parts. If the part is found, you can select which part you want as well as choose the warranty you’re most comfortable with.

You will notice that one of the columns towards the right is “Part Grade.” All of our mechanical parts receive a letter grade. A letter grade of ‘A’ means one of two things: 1) The part has less than 60,000 total miles of usage; 2) The mileage does not exceed 15,000 miles per model year of age. Now if it the part has a letter grade of ‘B’, the part has over 60,000 miles and has exceeded 15,000 miles per model year of age. Please note that no part we carry has over 200,000 miles of usage.

Our customers have benefited greatly from the online shopping process as less time is wasted trying to find the right part at the right price. Everything is streamlined into one place, so shoppers can make a decision instantly rather than calling and traveling from store to store trying to find what they’re looking for.

Although, you can find almost anything here at A&P Auto Parts, we do recommend that you buy your tires in-person, so you can feel and touch the tread of the tires. This is especially important for used tires as there can be a major difference in tread from tire to tire.
