Remanufactured Transmissions For Sale

I think it is important to be able to distinguish the differences between remanufactured transmissions and transmissions when you have a serious need for one. There are plenty of other terms being used that essentially mean the same thing. What I can see is that some transmission supply companies are not straight shooters and use words like remanufactured instead of rebuilt or reconditioned or refurbished, hoping people will think the term remanufactured is a better product.

Hopefully this statement by the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) will clear this up. Here is the URL if you want to read more. (http://www.apra.org/About/Reman.asp)….

Within the automotive industry itself there is considerable debate about the differences between the terms “rebuilt” and “remanufactured.” Some feel that while there may be no difference, “remanufactured” is a more appropriate term because it portrays the sophistication to which the industry has grown. Others prefer the term “rebuilt” because it more accurately describes the process of restoration of a used part. The bottom line is, the terms can be used interchangeably and mean the same thing.

Remanufacturers come in all sizes. There are many small, custom rebuilders who perform on-vehicle work and operate with a half dozen employees. There are also large rebuilders with more than one plant working on a production-line basis. They employee hundreds of people and restore thousands of parts to their former condition. Regardless of size or if they are called rebuilders or remanufcturers the final result is essentially the same: a quality job results in a quality product.

Now it is clear to you that some people simply use the term remanufactured in order to fool you into thinking they sell more ‘’sophisticated” products. APRA addresses this issue because so many people are confused about what is better and ask them.

The big thing I’m want to convey to you is that if the company is reputable, than they can call the component rebuilt or remanufactured, but the reality is that there should be no differences in how the product is re-done. We can’t control what companies designate their products as, we just don’t want confused consumers buy products that are misleading.

We don’t get involved in the type of advertising that might confuse our customers into buying our products. We simply call the transmissions we sell, rebuilt. Now that you know that the terms legally mean the same thing, dealing with a quality company should be easier.
