Re-Conditioned Car Parts

Another type of car part that is available is re-conditioned ones. These are old parts that have been re-conditioned and re-manufactured into a “like-new” condition. Re-conditioned car parts consists of  disassembling, cleaning, inspecting, replacing parts and testing before they are returned to the marketplace for reselling. They can have varying degrees of success and quality depending on how well the re-conditioning of the part has been performed.

This type of car part provides very good environmental benefits as it means the re-use of materials,energy and resources to bring the part back to an acceptable standard. Also, before the re-conditioned car parts are returned to the marketplace, each one has to meet the standards of OEM, which stands for original equipment manufacturer, tolerances.

As mentioned previously, the drawback to selecting re-conditioned car parts is that the quality of the part is dependent on how well the re-conditioning process has been performed. This means if the re-conditioning has not been done to an acceptable standard, the performance and suitability of the re-conditioned part will not be of an acceptable standard, possibly putting your safety at risk.
