Common Parts to Stock

(1/2) > >>

Hey All

I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice on which parts are used most often for repairs. I plan to keep some in stock in my truck and in my parts area (cabinet in my garage). I'm starting out on a bit of a shoestring budget, so I would like to keep the dollar amount of inventory to about $1000. Also, do any of the parts websites offer contractor pricing?

Thanks in advance for any advice

What part of the country do you live in?

With a sales tax number you should be able to get set up with a local parts distributor so you can buy at whole sale prices.

Hey thanks for the link, WPT.  I live in Washington state and in my particular area there are very few service techs. It's a rural are, so I know that I'm gonna be doing some windshield time, but I really believe that I can make a go of this.

Another question: What percentage of your repairs are laundry vs refrigeration vs cooking? I'm guessing that laundry is most common due to the amount of moving parts.
