Q: Can I supply the part for the service that I need done?

asked by on July 14, 2017

I need to get my starter replaced and wanted to know if I could supply the new starter and then have you install it or do I need to get the starter from you?

My car has 89000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You can supply your own parts but will not get any warranty for the install if the part is defective or has a problem down the road. If we supply the part then we can warranty it.
