Keeping your car maintained is no easy task, especially with the hazardous driving conditions of a New England winter. The biggest reason people struggle to keep up with their vehicles is the cost of new parts & repairs. The easiest way to find everything you need for your car at an affordable price is to shop used, not new! If your car needs any of the following parts, it’s time to schedule a trip to Robertson’s Auto Salvage in Wareham, MA.
If you have an old car that may not survive a whole other year, there’s no need to buy brand new tires. New tires are very expensive, and an old car that you may not have much longer won’t let you get the full value out of them. Instead of wasting your money, look for used tires in good condition. Used tires are often sold with only slight wear to the tread and plenty of miles left to drive!
Dents, scrapes, and other damages to your bumper are most common in New England after the winter storms. A damaged bumper doesn’t keep your car from running, but it does keep it from looking good! Cars that have broken down due to mechanical issues and ended up at a salvage yard often have bumpers that are in perfect, or near-perfect, condition. Even if you can’t find a bumper in the exact color as your car, you can always repaint it to match.
Transmissions are one of the most expensive parts to replace. Instead of trying to save for a new transmission, you should shop around for a rebuilt transmission that is in good condition.
Rebuilt alternators are a great option when you have a car that you are trying to get a little more life out of, without spending too much money. In a rebuilt alternator, the old wires are replaced with new ones and voltage regulators are tested to ensure it’s in good working condition.
Interior parts like door panels, rearview mirrors, and even console covers can all be found at salvage yards! Even if a car is broken down or has exterior damage, much of the inside is likely still in good condition. Look for a car that’s the same year, make, and model of yours to find the interior parts that your car is missing.
