Buying discount transmission parts is easy. However, you may want to reconsider buying separate parts. Buying transmission kits is always a better value. Here are three reasons why you should buy a transmission kit instead of buying individual parts.
You Will Always Need More Than the One or Two Parts You Think You Need
When you take apart the transmission believing that you will only need to replace this or that part, it is Murphy's Law that you will need more than just the part you thought you needed. If you buy only the one part, you have to return to the store to buy other parts, or purchase parts online and have to wait for them. Buying a kit means that you have all the parts you could need, regardless of the type of transmission you are attempting to repair.
Buying a Transmission Kit at Discount Cost Costs Less Than Buying Discounted Parts Separately
Kits that contain everything you need and then some at a discount price almost always cost less than buying multiple discounted parts separately. Sure, you may have some extra parts, but consider this: you will not have to buy any other parts again should you need them in the future. You can save yourself a lot of time and money now and in the future by buying a transmission kit.
You Can Always Sell Any Extra Parts You Do Not Need
If you fix your transmission, and then have lots of leftover parts in the kit, you can always sell the extras. What is more, if your car or truck ends up being salvage in the next couple of years, you can definitely sell off the extra parts because you will not need to hold onto them anymore. You can sell the parts to a salvage yard, or even to an auto repair shop, both of which can use the parts to repair similar vehicles.
Buying Transmission Kits in Bulk
For an even greater discount on transmission parts, buy kits in bulk. (If you get a job working for an auto body shop, your boss may appreciate the fact that you have boxes and boxes of kits to fix customers' vehicles.) Anything bought in bulk is usually cheaper than individual items, and kits bought in bulk are even less costly than single kits. Standard and automatic kits can both be purchased this way if you know where to look.
