FAQs

  • How do you sell parts so much cheaper than your competitors?

    Bring Your Own Parts is dedicated to changing the automotive industry. Consumers, empowered by the internet, want to find the best price on anything. Well, we want to get you the best price. So, we charge you the same price you’d pay if you walked in and purchased it yourself. Primarily, we get our parts from Advance Auto Parts, and the price we quote you is the walk-in price. We also use other retail parts vendors though, to ensure we find the best price. When we have to pick up parts from the dealership, they are sold to you at list price.  Basically, it boils down to this, we find the parts you need and have them delivered to the shop at no extra charge. We save you the hassle of driving down there and picking it up. Also, you have our experienced service writers help in choosing the right part. Lastly, you receive added warranty protection because of our business relationship with local parts retailers.

     

    NOTE: Some used parts or sublet parts and/or work will have a surcharge.

  • Do I have to bring my own parts?

    No, absolutely not. Bring Your Own Parts is a concept, not a directive. For some car people who want to install specialty or hard-to-find parts, this works well. For others, it’s much more convenient to have the mechanic diagnose their issue and retrieve the part. The best part is, we do not charge the outrageous markups dealerships and other repair shops charge. The price you pay for parts (whether you bring them in or not) at BYOP is the same price you’ll pay if you find it at an automotive parts store. We’ll save you the trip and the time, but we won’t charge you extra for it.

  • What do you mean by “no markups”?

    Markup is the difference between the cost of the part and the sale price. Dealerships and other automotive repair shops charge a significant markup on the parts they sell you. This is why many car enthusiasts buy their own parts from parts retailers. They know they can save money. At Bring Your Own Parts though, we’re changing the automotive industry by eliminating the outrageous markups and saving you time. If you don’t have the know-how or the time to take a trip to the parts dealer, we’ll make sure you get the parts your vehicle needs at the lowest price.

  • Do you offer same day service?

    Yes, in most cases we can offer same day service. If you desire same day service, please call and set an appointment at least a day in advance. Many times we can fulfill your request, but we are a very busy shop so it is not always available.

  • Do you offer a warranty?

    Yes, we offer a lifetime warranty on most parts. For example, if you buy brake pads from us, they come with a lifetime warranty on the pads. When the pads run out, come back and we’ll trade in your old pads for new ones, just pay labor.

  • If I get my scheduled maintenance done at Bring Your Own Parts, will it void my warranty?

    No, our mechanics are highly trained and they will perform maintenance and repairs to the factory standards. Also, we maintain your record of repairs so if you ever lose your invoices, we have them on file so the dealership cannot void your warranty.

  • Do you perform paint and body work?

    Yes, we do paint and body work. Whether you want a new paint job or need collision repair, we have you covered. Want a custom paint job?  We can make your car your dream car.

  • Can I work on my own car?

    No, you can’t bring your car and work on it yourself. That would be an interesting concept but that’s what we have trained technicians for. Also, there’d be a lot of insurance liabilities and other complications that we wouldn’t want to deal with.

  • Do you work on imports?

    Yes, we work on all makes and models, foreign and domestic. Our trained technicians have experience maintaining and repairing import vehicles from all manufacturers such as Mercedes Benz, BMW, Lexus, Porsche, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mini, Mitsubishi, Honda, Audi, Toyota, Subaru, Volvo, Inifiniti, Nissan, Acura, Hyundai, Volkswagen, Scion, Mazda, Kia, Isuzu, Saab and more.
