One of the absolute best uses of a salvage auction is as a source for parts. Aftermarket or OEM parts are cost-prohibitive; sometimes using them to make significant repairs on a motorcycle or scooter can cost more than replacing it with a running vehicle of the same model and year. To save customers and garages money, many people look to salvage parts for repairing needs. Bikes that are largely intact can be located fairly easily and used to make major repairs or replacements.
However, once the repairs are made there are still many usable parts left on the donor vehicle. Selling these parts online or to local shops can be an efficient and nearly effortless way to generate extra income.
