Aftermarket Motorcycle Parts' Foray

What's in aftermarket parts to argue about?

Different states view aftermarket parts in different perspectives. Some states allow insurance companies to use aftermarket parts without consumers consent. Others require customer notification. Nonetheless, other states banned the use of aftermarket parts to repair their vehicles. From these scenarios, we can say that there is really no consensus as to the beneficially or peril brought about by this kind of parts.

When you take your bike to a repair shop, you are sometimes advised to use aftermarket parts instead of OEM parts. The first thing that comes to our mind is to refuse the offer. This is because we think of aftermarket motorcycle parts a bad choice. However, this may not always be the case. Aftermarket parts used may be equal, better, or worse in quality than the original manufacturer parts.

A greater percentage of repair shops are using aftermarket parts to damaged motorcycles. Those shops that are not using said parts have quality as the main disagreement. However, their greatest advantage is that they are less expensive. This is the reason why insurance companies save money. Consumers in turn save too. So when do you thing is the best time to use aftermarket parts?

Majority of

insurance companies use aftermarket parts for collision repairs. Thus, for consumers to be aware and knowledgeable when to make an affirmative decision, here are some steps to consider:

1. Check with their insurance company to be able to know what policies are in place for the use of aftermarket parts.

2. Check with their state insurance commissioner to know the state policies on the use of aftermarket parts.

3. Finally, decide. If it uses aftermarket parts at the insurance company's discretion and the consumer has concerns then they can try to ask that OEM parts are used. If they don not grant the request, then shop around for an insurance company that has a fair and desirable aftermarket crash parts policy.

From the aforementioned guidelines we can conclude that we have to be secure first whether the insurance company that we are dealing with uses aftermarket motorcycle parts. Then, we must be sure with our choice whether to grab it or not.
