What exactly are aftermarket parts? Aftermarket parts are any part for your vehicle that is not sourced from the car’s manufacturer. Often, aftermarket parts cost less than factory parts. At Robert’s Collision and Repair, we use aftermarket parts for repairing the mechanical aspect of your vehicle. Inversely, we use factory parts for auto body repair.
How exactly can this combination of aftermarket and factory parts save you money? Here are a few ways how:
- Overall, aftermarket parts are just typically less expensive. If you use a combination of both aftermarket and factory parts, compared to using all factory parts, you will save money.
- Often, the quality of aftermarket parts can be greater or equal to the quality of factory parts.
- When it comes to aftermarket parts, there is much more variety and availability. This means there are more options and a much wider range of prices.
