Trusted Saskatoon Auto Repair Pro's at Phobia Auto Explain Why They Don't Allow Customers to Supply Parts

Trusted Saskatoon Auto Repair & Service Experts at Phobia Auto are based in Martensville and they are a trusted source for honest advice and qualified auto service and repairs. People ask all the time why you can't supply your own parts when they come into Phobia Auto. If you are wondering why Phobia Auto answer the question in the tip below. Phobia Auto Are Trusted Saskatoon & area Auto Repair & Service Specialists. 


Phobia Auto Will Not Allow Customers to Supply Parts


Reason # 1: Warranty

The main reason is the warranty. Phobia Auto offers at the 1-year part and labour warranty on almost everything they install (depending on the manufacturer or if it says a used major component.) 




Reason # 2: Who Takes the Blame



Warranty can be a sticky situation. Let’s say a customer supplies a power steering pump they bought online. They install it and it’s a faulty pump (this is a real word thing). The customer is now on the hook for taking the part off and putting another on. Paying the labour twice. Phobia pays insurance on every part that comes through the door to allow them to eat these labour costs in a situation like this. 


Reason # 3: Auto Repair Shops Get Discounted Parts


Also, don’t forget that they get thousands of dollars worth of parts from the local jobbers. They should be entitled to get the parts a few dollars cheaper than the customer that buys a set of pads and a water pump every two years. So yes, they make money on parts. They must! Shop owners have a responsibility to pay their techs on time so that they can put food on the table while setting aside money for themselves as independent owners. Running a successful shop is very…..very expensive!




Reason # 4: Liability


The shop could be legally liable for failed parts. If they had installed a part that you had bought, and that part failed and caused an accident, Phobia Auto could be held legally liable. Why does that matter? Like many shop owners, Phobia Auto owners have poured their life savings into their businesses. The liability for installing a part you had purchased, in order to save a few bucks, isn’t worth that risk to a business owner’s personal and professional livelihoods. 



Reason # 5: Wrong Parts


Another issue we used to run into was wrong parts. Customers would be confident they had the right part they bought online. But they forgot to pay attention to if they had a 4x4 or a certain option that changed the part. Phobia Auto would have a dismantled vehicle on the hoist. Some customers would offer to get a new part from online but leaving them with a hoist tied up for days.

Ally one of the Trusted Saskatoon team members is a loyal client of Phobia and she shares her experience. 

 "I have used Phobia Auto for basic care of my SUV as well as maintenance and tune up on my Vintage 1985 Vette. She originally belonged to my father who passed away. The Vette is more than just a car, and Steve at Phobia Auto understands this. From my personal experience the Phobia team treat all vehicles with respect, care, and understanding that outside of a home,  this is often the largest purchase a person will make. The Phobia Auto shop runs very cleanly and the work done has always been top notch. "   Ally O, Martensville


Ally is not the only person who feels this way. As part of the in depth checking and  Trusted Saskatoon verification process we contacted many of Phobia Auto’s customers,  they all came back with glowing reviews of service and highlighted the quality of work. Steve, the owner of Phobia Auto, and his team have a passion and love for vehicles that is clear to see. They also have a knowledge of special and high-performance tuning that is incredible. Steve tests out many performance upgrades on his own vehicles to ensure the clients requesting these kinds of upgrades get the feel, look, and power they are craving.

 I started using Phobia Auto this summer, it’s very difficult to find an auto repair shop that will meet your needs, communicate with you and stay on target for what you are prepared to pay. No secrets no surprises. Phobia Auto has been a grand slam for my company keeping me and my corporation and families vehicles on the road. Quick turn around and amazing service. 
I give my complete blessing to these people. They work hard and deserve your business. 
Cheers Phobia Auto. Steve, you and your team are amazing. Keep up the great work. "Adam Hartle, Core Rock Consulting Services in Martensville Sk
