Aftermarket parts are created and distributed by a third-party. Unfortunately, many fleet owners are under the mistaken impression that this means corners have been cut or quality sacrificed. This is not the case. And it is never the case with our aftermarket parts supplier, ACE Supply. ACE offers the highest grade, quality parts that provide premium performance from the most trusted brands (International, Volvo, Peterbilt, Sterling Trucks, Freightliner, Kenworth, Mack, etc.) in the industry.
In light of these facts, ACE Supply compiled five reasons why you should consider aftermarket parts:
A larger range of options. Aftermarket parts offer significantly more options than standard stock alternatives. Regardless of whether you want to repair or upgrade your truck, with stock parts you are limited to what your brand has on the market right now.
Cost savings. More variety means a broader range of choices and the ability to find the product you want at a particular price point.
Performance enhancement. Aftermarket resources allow you to improve or adjust the performance of your truck in ways that stock parts simply cannot. Stainless steel finishes to combat rust resistance or wider exhaust pipes for better airflow are just some examples.
Higher quality. Since many aftermarket parts are reverse engineered, problems with a part that the brand maker was not aware of when it was first produced can be corrected. This allows for a higher quality part that performs better than the original.
Availability. If your truck breaks down, manufacturer’s parts can be difficult to locate and may take days to order. Aftermarket parts, on the other hand, are readily available, keeping your truck on the road, not parked waiting for a part to be delivered.
