Welcome to the Allyz Auto Certified Collision Center blog, where we provide valuable consumer information, education, and empowerment for the Orlando community. Our focus is on OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) safe and proper repairs, and we only recommend new OEM replacement parts for your vehicle.
If you've ever been in an automotive collision, you understand that dealing with insurance, local authorities, and other parties is just the beginning of your journey to getting your vehicle back to its pre-accident condition.
When it comes to choosing the right auto body shop, you've already done your homework. Now, as you review your repair estimates, you may come across part numbers and names that seem confusing. Understanding the different types of parts and their pros and cons can help you make informed decisions about your vehicle repairs.
OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. These parts are made by the same company that manufactured your vehicle, ensuring a proper fit and high-quality. Ordering OEM parts can be done through third-party retailers or directly from the manufacturer. Most reputable repair shops have access to OEM parts and can select the correct part using well-labeled diagrams provided by the manufacturer.
Aftermarket parts are not made by the original manufacturer and can offer more customization options for your vehicle. However, it's crucial to ensure that aftermarket parts meet OEM standards and have manufacturer approval. While they may be cost-effective, the quality and fitment may not always be guaranteed.
Used or recycled parts have been previously used on other vehicles and can be a cost-effective option, especially for older vehicles. Reputable auto body shops thoroughly inspect and test these parts before installation. However, they may not come with warranties and may not offer the same quality or longevity as OEM or aftermarket parts.
Choosing the right parts for your repair depends on factors such as the age and popularity of your vehicle, your budget, and your personal preferences. At Allyz Auto Certified Collision Center, we prioritize the use of OEM parts for proper and safe repairs.
