All drivers can suffer a breakdown and, repairing it, opens the debate between buying a new part or resorting to scrapping. The latter are much cheaper than the newer ones, but there are still reluctant drivers. If you include yourself among these, you should know that current cars are recyclable, practically, in their entirety and the parts that are in the scrapyard are identical to the originals.
What parts can you buy at a junkyard?
Actually, we can buy any part for the car in a junkyard: from the wheels to the headlights, through the engine parts, the mirrors, the bumpers, the fenders …
They are versatile parts, which adapt to all vehicle models and which still have a long useful life; no matter how much, due to circumstances of all kinds, the vehicle to which they belonged has ceased to circulate and is in scrap.
How much can you save by buying parts at the junkyard?
And we come to the question that every driver asks himself: how much can I save, buying the parts at the junkyard, instead of requesting the original spare part from the factory? We calculate that the savings ranges between 20 and 80%, a percentage more than to take into account when facing the repair of your vehicle.
Remember that you will have to add VAT and labor, so a saving on the pieces is appreciated.
Of course, you should always go to legal scrap yards and avoid clandestine ones, where we will have no guarantee of the origin of the parts they sell to us; although, sometimes, they are cheaper than conventional ones. Only in authorized centers (C.A.T), such as Desguaces El Malagueño, you can purchase these parts.
