If you’ve ever been in an accident on the road, needed some work done to your car or woke up in the morning to find that some yobs have damaged it, then you’ll know that it can put a serious dent in your wallet.
Whether you need a new fan belt for your Skoda Fabia or new brake lights for your Land Rover Defender, it can be tough to know how to get the best deal on the part that you require.
Here are a few steps that you can follow which should help you to get the best deal.
If you have been told by a mechanic that you need a replacement part for your vehicle, take it to a few other garages to get second and third opinions. You may have been incorrectly informed, or come to realise that a simple repair would be more cost effective.
An easy way to ensure that you get the cheapest price for the part that you need is to shop online. For example, if you are looking for a new head gasket you can enter your details at a site such as BuyYourCarParts.co.uk and submit a request. Your information is sent to hundreds of brokers who come back with quotes – it’s a simple method for quickly determining where you can get the best deal.
