Purchasing used car parts, instead of brand new pieces, can save you hundreds of dollars. Ace Auto Parts provides a wide selection of used parts for you to pick from. However, stopping into a salvage yard does require you to practice a few safety precautions and procedures. By following these steps, you’ll have a safe and successful visit to the parts shop.
● Wear Proper Shoes
Hunting for parts in the thick of summer may have you feeling tempted to wear a comfortable pair of sandals, but you should opt for a pair of sturdy and closed-toed shoes instead. There are a variety of heavy, metal objects that can fall on your feet, putting you at risk of injury. To prevent any accidents from occurring, protect your feet with some closed-toe boots.
● Have Eye Protection Ready
For shop visitors who prefer to pull parts themselves, be sure to have a form of eye protection. Between loose fluids and falling parts, your eyes are at risk of many forms of damage.
● Hand Protection
Sharp edges are frequent when it comes to car parts, which is why you should arrive at the salvage yards prepared with a durable pair of gloves. A pair of heavy-duty gloves will ensure you stay safe while pulling and handling parts at the salvage yard.
● Ask for Help
Because many car parts are heavy and fragile, you should ask a friend or family member to assist you with your trip to the parts shop. Not only will this make for a smoother search process, but additional help will also lower your chances of experiencing injuries due to bulky and heavy pieces.
● Arrive Prepared
From having the proper tools for pulling the parts you need, to thoroughly researching the exact pieces that will work best with your vehicle, there are a few steps you should complete before arriving at the salvage yard. Take some time to completely prepare for your visit to avoid enduring accidents and mistakes.
