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.

Trusted Brags about Wood FX Contracting a Trusted Saskatoon Carpenter and Renovation Pro

The Trusted Saskatoon Team are delighted to welcome Wood FX Contracting to our Saskatoon directory of excellence in the Saskatoon Renovations Category

Wood FX Contracting

Wood FX Contracting is a family run Saskatoon renovation business with over 18 years of experience. It was founded by Orville Friesen, who initially started the company doing exterior renovations and then he switched to interior renovations. The company specializes in hardwood flooring and carpentry but can tackle any interior residential renovation you might need! In 2013 Wood FX Contracting became the registered business name and it is now primarily run by Orville's son Justin Friesen,  although Orville is still on site daily. The Father & son team have worked together for years providing quality workmanship to many clients and home builders!


Trusted Saskatoon Home Builders, Decora Homes Ltd. nominated Wood FX shared their experience with Wood FX Contracting:

"When it comes to hardwood, laminate, LVP or WCP install, Wood FX is a company we would recommend to anyone. We have been using their services for over 4 years now and have had nothing but great experiences with their quality of workmanship." -Rhonda Iula (Owner - Decora Homes Ltd.)


Every client that we talked throughout the Trusted verification process and survey that has worked with Wood FX Contracting had nothing but great things to say and the were given a 10/10 every time! 

One thing that we loved was that they knew Justin and the family by name but not always the company name, which just shows how they are truly the faces of their business!

Another happy client from Saskatoon had this to say about their experience with Wood FX Contracting!

"I have known Justin and his family for over 10 years and they are the best installers in Saskatoon. Their family was born and raised with woodwork. They are great with their clients and ensure quality work. Any issues that arise in regards to humidity etc that might affect install they are upfront and honest about! They definitely have my trust! - Corey G. (Saskatoon)

Wood FX Contracting does all type of interior renovations from bathrooms, kitchens, flooring installation and much more... When we visited their work site we saw for ourselves the quality of workmanship they stand by! 

Trusted Saskatoon welcomes the Friesen Family and Wood FX Contracting to our directory of excellence and we give them the Thumbs Up!

Kari Calder donated to the Saskatoon YWCA’s adopt-a room program!

This wonderful program is being supported by 98 Cool and Christmas 365. As a result of her generous donation and thanks to the kind folks at Pizza Hut, we were going to throw a pizza party for Kari’s office. Kari decided to use the pizza to give back to a local charity that is close to her heart! Kari is a mentor/ fairy godmother with the Saskatoon Princess Shop, and they held a Christmas party for the participants in the Fairy Godmother’s Program. Kari thought the kids in the program would appreciate a Christmas treat. Pizza Hut delivered 10 extra large, and delicious, pizzas for the party and a great time was had by all!

Thanks to Kari for her generous donation to the YWCA, and also for paying it forward. Pizza Hut came through BIG TIME and in the giving spirit have said that if another individual or group adopts a room at the YWCA they would be thrilled to provide another pizza party to celebrate and say “THANKS”. All donations can be made though Joy-Ann at the YWCA. 

























The Trusted Saskatoon directory team and the Trusted Saskatoon community of local businesses run with integrity also send our thank you's to Kari Calder- a Trusted Saskatoon Realtor!
