If some part of your car has been damaged, for whatever reason, you might be torn between repair and replacement. Many times, the situation is too bad to get it repaired at an affordable cost. In this case, replacing the damaged parts will be more cost-effective.

And many people might have advised you to buy spare parts from car wreckers rather than anywhere else. In this article, we will tell you five reasons why that’s good advice.

One of the obvious reasons why buying spare parts from automotive dismantlers is encouraged is that they’re significantly cheaper than auto parts shops. This is because car dismantlers sell used parts from old cars they’ve bought.

Usually, they will price it depending on the condition and value of the metal. And most of the time, the parts in the best condition will still be cheaper than the average auto parts store.


You can only imagine how much auto production harms the environment. The production of glass, steel, iron, plastic and other materials necessary for cars uses a lot of resources. Moreover, a lot of waste is generated as a by-product.

Not buying from auto parts stores means you’re not contributing to the increase in production. And hence, you’re contributing to the conservation of resources. This is also the reason why it’s encouraged to sell your old cars to car wreckers. Because we will recycle it and, thus, be able to reduce auto production.
