You might be surprised to know that some used auto parts bought in NC have better warranties than those of new parts! Local auto salvage yards usually offer a free standard used auto parts warranty with some salvage yards offering an extended parts warranty with a minimal additional charge. Those extended used auto parts warranties may even include a labor guarantee. As with any purchase, especially new or used mechanical parts, we suggest that you read the warranty fine print! Local salvage yards are very good about displaying and disclosing their warranty information, just ask for a copy and take a couple minutes to glance it over. Below are a few tips to understanding standard and extended warranties on used auto parts in NC.
Though most auto salvage yards have great standard used auto parts warranties, the length or duration of those warranties may vary slightly between salvage yards. They will usually fall somewhere between 30 days and 90 days with some being longer and usually do not cover any labor cost assoctiated with replacing the part. There may also be slight variations between local salvage yard’s warranties that have the same length. Meaning all 90 day warranties may not be the same! For example some salvage yard warranties may require that you follow certain steps or procedures when installing a used engine or transmission and if those steps are not followed it may void your warranty. These required procedures are not meant to “trap” or trick you into invalidating a warranty, they are in place because some mechanical parts “require” them to operate properly. Always ask the used auto parts salesperson if or what requirements may be associated with your specific used parts purchase. Then compare and choose the local salvage yard or used auto part that best fits your needs.
Many NC salvage yards now offer an extended used auto parts warranty on engines, transmissions, rear ends and other mechanical parts and in most cases, they require an additional fee. Even more so than with the standard parts warranties, extended warranties may vary in length, scope and also in the fee charged. In general, these extended benefits are well worth the money when offered by and purchased from an established and trusted local salvage yard. As always, read the fine print to make sure that you follow any requirements of the warranty, know exactly what steps to take and what to expect in case you need to execute the warranty.
Ok, so let’s summarize a few things about used auto parts warranties. We know that for most mechanical used parts purchases you should receive a “standard warranty” at no additional charge and in most cases does NOT include any reimbursement for labor cost. We know that some salvage yards offer “extended warranties”, that in most cases requires an additional fee and sometimes will include at least a partial labor guarantee. You know that you should always read the fine print because all warranties that state the same duration may not always be the same. Always check for any installation requirements that need to be followed before, during or after installation. As with any purchase, make sure that you keep all of your receipts including your labor cost and supplies in case you need to verify those later. Any exceptions to warranties that are verbally communicated to you by a used auto parts salesperson or salvage yard, should be documented or written on the used auto parts bill of sale or sales receipt. This will help clarify any possible misunderstandings down the road. Remember that most NC salvage yards that are mentioned or advertise on these pages are well established companies and have been in business for generations in some cases. They have successful businesses because they take pride in delivering quality products and services to you the customer.
