When Should You Consider Reconditioned Engines and Parts?

Since 1988, we have been supplying reconditioned engines and parts with affordable reconditioned engines prices in mind. At Foxwood Diesel, we want to ensure you and your fleet runs at full capacity, saving your business both time and money.  
Here, we explore what reconditioned engines and parts are, when you should start using them, the benefits of reconditioned engines and what to expect from engine reconditioning costs. 


What are Reconditioned Engines and Parts?

Reconditioned engines and reconditioned parts have been given a new lease of life to be as good as new. Typically, this process involves an engine or engine part being dismantled in our workshop. Our expert mechanics then determine the problem and resolve any faults with a replacement piece or component. The reconditioned diesel engine or engine part will then be reassembled followed by a thorough clean. Reconditioned engines and reconditioned parts ensure that your bus, truck, or commercial diesel vehicle is back to running smoothly in no time.   


When Should You Consider Reconditioned Engines and Parts?

Compared to buying a replacement component brand new, reconditioned engines and engine parts are perfect if:

1. You are sticking to a budget
A brand new engine or part replacement can be very expensive, which may be out of your budget. If you need an expensive repair, and a new engine is too much, it's time to look at affordable engine reconditioning costs. Reconditioned engines and parts are key if you're looking to repair your fleet or car cost-effectively. 


2. You purchased a project
If you have purchased a 'doer-upper', a reconditioned engine or reconditioned engine parts allows you to get the best possible component at a competitive price. This ensures your project can be more budget-friendly, rather than purchasing a brand new engine or part. 


3. You're experiencing chronic engine problems
If you are experiencing chronic engine problems, you should seek to fix these issues as soon as possible; especially if you're having consistent issues with pistons, gaskets, cylinder heads or bearings. A reconditioned engine or reconditioned part will be the most efficient answer to your problem.  


4. Your engine block is damaged, or your parts are worn
Over time, your parts may become worn due to general wear and tear. Or, in the colder months, your engine block may become cracked or damaged from the harsh weather. Our fantastic mechanics work hard to solve any issues you experience. 


5. You need to avoid downtime
A reconditioned engine or engine part allows you to avoid downtime. We understand and keep in mind that minimising downtime is important to ensure you or your fleet stays efficient and runs smoothly. 


6. You value warranty
When an engine or engine parts are reconditioned, time and care have been spent to ensure that these components are now in the best working condition possible. With the majority of reconditioned engines and parts, they come with a warranty to put your mind at ease and save you any further unexpected costs. 


7. You want to improve the resale value of your equipment
If you're in the situation where you want to resell your vehicle, you will be able to charge a higher price if the vehicle has a fully working engine and all engine parts are in a great condition. Purchasing a reconditioned engine or engine parts will give you a return on investment in the long term.
