When it comes to car repairs, one of the most important things to consider is the quality of the parts that are being used. While it may be tempting to opt for the cheapest option when it comes to parts, it’s important to keep in mind that inferior parts can lead to a host of problems down the line.

The Wreck Check Atlanta Car Scan Center can assist based on your unique circumstances. Here are some recommendations to help you avoid inferior parts when your vehicle needs repairs.

Do Your Research

It is important to shop around for the best insurance policy, always ensuring that you read and understand each one before purchasing coverage. You may encounter language that suggests using inferior components; avoid this at all costs. Choose a company and policy that allows for using OEM parts in all repairs.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions when reviewing insurance policies or even later when having your car repaired. Reputable insurance agents will be happy to answer any questions you have about the parts used in your repairs and will be transparent about the repair process. If you’re not comfortable with the answers you’re getting, it may be time to find a new insurance company that is more transparent and trustworthy.

Choose a Reputable Mechanic or Repair Shop

Another way to ensure that you’re getting high-quality parts for your car repairs is to work with a reputable mechanic or repair shop. Look for a mechanic who has experience working with your make and model of car, and who has a track record of providing quality work. Ask for referrals from friends and family, and read online reviews to get an idea of what other customers have experienced.

Ask for OEM (original equipment manufacturer) when having your car, truck or SUV repaired. OEM parts are made by the same manufacturer as the parts that were originally installed in your car, so they’re guaranteed to fit and function properly. Aftermarket parts are made by third-party manufacturers and are often of inferior quality compared to OEM parts. They may not fit or work properly and cause more problems later. They may also not be guaranteed for quality or workmanship like OEM parts.

Trust But Verify

Former President Ronald Reagan was famous for this statement when dealing with the Soviets. “Trust, but verify” is a good policy to follow if you suspect anything is amiss with your car repairs. Wreck Check Atlanta can provide Post-Repair Inspections to help ensure your vehicle is repaired correctly with OEM parts.

Avoiding inferior parts in your car repairs is essential to keeping your car running smoothly, avoiding costly repairs down the line and ensuring your family’s safety.

  • Amazing! He told me early on how much money he was going to be able to get me and he was spot on. I paid a small fee to get thousands more in my diminished value claim than the insurance company was offering. Further, RJ was very easy to get in contact with. He responded to my emails almost instantly. The whole process went by so quickly once he was involved. I would recommend him to anyone.

  • My insurance company offered me 37 bucks in diminished value. My case was slightly complex due to the insurance companies appraiser being stubborn and difficult. It had to be escalated to an unbiased umpire for a final binding decision. I wasn't expecting for it to go this far however it did. I ended up getting close to 3K back. RJ is extremely professional and he fights for you. The only issue to me is his preferred method of communication which is by email. Which i became accustomed to because he responds more prompt that way. He generated a 30 to 40 page report. He works extremely hard and for that I'm appreciative.

  • RJ is Awesome! He got me 10x what the insurance company offered on a 2 year old accident. Also, I traded the car in 7 months ago so I no longer had it. If I could share this experience with every person I see I would. I’ve already told several family and friends, it’s really just unbelievable to me! If you have any question what so ever, I promise his fee will be the best $275 you’ll ever spend!!
