What to Look for When Buying a Used Truck Axle?

Truck axles are an essential part of any vehicle, so if they become damaged it’s vital you replace them as soon as possible. However, replacing a truck axle can be expensive. If you need a fast replacement but you just don’t have the cash available, a used model could be a great alternative.

At M. W. Truck Parts, we have a wide range of used truck axles for sale at just a fraction of the cost. You’ll find both front and rear used axles, along with a variety of different models. Of course, when you’re replacing something as important as a truck axle, it’s important to choose a reliable, genuine seller. Here you’ll discover what to look out for when buying a used truck axle.

Always ask for photos

When buying or looking at used parts online, it’s important to know exactly what you’re getting. This means you should be able to see a photo of the truck axle you’re thinking of buying. Be aware that not all photos are genuine. With a used truck axle, you’d expect it to look used. You need to pay attention to the background too. Are you being shown a generic photo of a new axle with just a white background? If so, it’s more than likely this isn’t the actual part you will be receiving.

M. W. Truck Parts supplies genuine photos of all of our used truck axles, taken at our premises. We’re also happy to supply additional photos if required and encourage you to visit our site to see the parts in person if possible.   

Look out for customer feedback

Another important factor to consider is the reliability of the seller. Look out for any customer feedback and reviews you can find. A good supplier will have numerous positive reviews, helping you to know exactly what to expect in terms of quality, shipping and reliability.

Be sure to choose the right model

There is no universal truck axle available so you need to be sure you’re choosing one that is designed specifically for the make and model of your truck. We have an extensive range of axles available and we’ll be happy to advise you on the right model if needed.  

The above are the most important factors to consider when buying used truck axles. All of the truck axles we sell are tested or checked prior to shipping. If you have any questions or need advice on choosing the right model, contact us today.
