Did you know there is a car re­pair mall in Utah County?

Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY - By Alice Jo­hansen

If your car is in need of re­pairs or parts, now you have the op­tion of on­estop shop­ping for parts re­pairs or even emis­sions and in­spec­tions. Duane’s Auto Wreck­ing has teamed up with Auto Body Smart Parts, Pro Auto and Mas­ter Tech. They are all in one lo­ca­tion at 1190 N. 1600 West (Geneva Road) in Orem.

Duane’s Auto Parts has been sell­ing used auto parts at this lo­ca­tion for over 35 years. They stated out in a small build­ing with just a tele­phone, a few parts and their knowl­edge. They en­joyed the times that friends would stop in just to have cof­fee and shoot the breeze.

Times have changed over the years. Duane’s has moved to a much larger build­ing and the parts are in­ven­to­ried and com­put­er­ized. If they don’t have a part you are look­ing for, they can look on their Hollander na­tion­wide lo­cat­ing ser­vice and have it shipped to the shop or di­rectly to you. Duane’s is proud that they have long-term em­ploy­ees that are ex­pe­ri­enced and help­ful. The cor­rect term for used parts is now “re­cy­cled parts.” In fact, the auto sal­vage in­dus­try is the world’s largest re­placer of nat­u­ral re­source. Call Duane’s Auto at 801-2255586.

Why buy used parts? Price is the main rea­son peo­ple choose to buy used or re­cy­cled parts. Avail­abil­ity is also a good rea­son to check with Duane’s Auto be­fore pay­ing full price at the dealer or hav­ing to wait for the part to be or­dered.

Reusing qual­ity parts helps to pre­vent a moun­tain of waste from end­ing up in the land­fills. This also re­duces the need for pro­duc­tion of new parts, in turn sav­ing en­ergy and re­sources. Re­cy­cled parts are OEM parts that were made for your ve­hi­cle. When you pur­chase a qual­ity pre-owned part, you are sav­ing money and par­tic­i­pat­ing in re­cy­cling at its best.

Auto Body Smart Parts is right next door, Utah’s num­ber one source for af­ter­mar­ket body parts. Kim Jo­hansen is the owner of Auto Body Smart Parts and learned the auto parts busi­ness work­ing along­side Duane. Call 801-802-7278.
