Why Remanufacture?

Savings

Save 30-50% with remanufacturing compared to buying a new replacement vehicle

WARRANTY

Every reman vehicle comes with a 3 year – 100,000 mile powertrain warranty

Value

Remanufacturing can double the life and mileage of your vehicle

Environment

A remanufactured vehicle is 550% better for the environment than a new vehicle.

How much does it cost?

On average, it costs about half of what you would pay for a new truck.

So if a new truck costs $50k, you save $25k. But that doesn’t include possible additional savings on upfits or modifications you have made to your vehicle. When you reman, all those stay in place. When you buy new, you are starting from scratch. But ultimately, you are in control of the cost. Every reman bid is comprised of 5 sections: powertrain, mechanical, suspension, exterior, and interior. The first three (powertrain, suspension and mechanical) are driven more by necessity, but the last two (exterior and interior) are completely up to you. Some customers see the aesthetics as a place they can save, while others want the vehicle to look brand new. We can handle both scenarios and everything in between.

How does it work?

We replace all the parts of your vehicle that
breakdown or wear out.

It can vary (by vehicle and by customer), but this is typically the engine, transmission, shocks, brakes, drive axle, suspension, paint, AC, etc. And we leave all the parts that don’t wear out, like the frame and the body.

The result: less waste; new vehicle with a warranty; ½ the price of new.

Why haven’t I heard of this before?

In short, because vehicle manufacturers need you to keep buying new vehicles to support their financial models.

But this is not a new idea. The Federal Vehicle Repair Cost Savings Act of 2015 encourages all federal agencies to use remanufactured vehicle parts for their fleets. Private aircraft (yes, airplanes!) and boats are regularly remanufactured. The military has a long history of what it calls “rebuild” programs for just about every vehicle in its inventory (we know because we helped them do it).

Remanufacturing is not new, and remanufacturing vehicles is not new. It’s just new to the private sector.

Remanufacturing is essentially bringing certain vehicle components back up to to the manufacturer’s original specs. A remanufactured part will withstand all the same stress and quality tests of a new part. This technique significantly extends the life of a vehicle in a very affordable way, which reduces the need to replace fleet vehicles as often.

Huge. Remanufacturing is the path to becoming more environmentally friendly as it substantially prolongs the need to dispose of vehicles.  CLICK HERE for a closer look at the environmental impacts of remanufacturing.

Yes! Instead of depreciating a vehicle once, remanufacturing creates multiple depreciation events. We would love to give your accountant a breakdown of how it works (this whitepaper describes the process).

Whether you own 1 or 100,000 vehicles, we are your one-stop shop for fleet remanufacturing.
