The Benefits Of Supporting Auto-Recycling Instead Of Buying New Parts

When you are rebuilding a vehicle or have to replace a part, you basically have two options available: Buying the parts new or supporting auto-recycling and purchasing the parts secondhand. 

Here at Belair Mitsubishi Wreckers, we specialise in Mitsubishi wrecking, salvaging high-quality Mitsubishi parts in NZ, and providing these parts to the public. In this article, we’ll have a look at some of the benefits you can expect to experience when supporting auto-recycling companies instead of buying new parts. 


It only makes sense that buying secondhand is a lot cheaper than buying new. Maintaining a vehicle is very expensive, and it definitely helps to save money where you can.

Less Waiting Time

When you order new parts from the manufacturer, you could end up waiting a long time. Months even! This can be very inconvenient if you need to get your vehicle back up and running. In comparison, secondhand parts are usually readily available and easy to come by, making them the better choice for many vehicle owners.

Less Energy Use

Producing any type of vehicle part requires quite a significant amount of energy. We live in an age where every person has a responsibility to conserve their energy usage where they can, and purchasing secondhand goods is definitely one way to reduce your eco-footprint.


What many people worry about when buying secondhand is the quality. But in fact, salvaged parts are usually of very high quality, and reputable auto-recyclers would not sell you anything that is bound to break in the near future. If you do your research, quality should not be a problem.

Support Independent Business

When you buy new parts, you are ultimately supporting the manufacturer, who certainly does not need any more money in their pocket. When you buy secondhand, you are more often than not supporting an independent person that appreciates and needs your business.

Reduce Landfill Waste

Landfills are getting fuller and fuller by the day. By purchasing secondhand parts, you save them from ending up in a landfill.
