Miller Auto Plaza parts departmentWhen your car, truck, van, or SUV is in need of service and you’re on the lookout for where to schedule that service, we’re here to help. It’s been my experience that the difference between a smooth, easy repair process, and a slow, expensive repair process has less to do with what your vehicle needs and more to do with other factors.

At Miller Auto & Marine, we take extra care to ensure you can have your vehicle serviced and repaired at a fair, honest price and in a timely manner. One of the steps we’ve taken to bring a better service experience to our customers is having an on-site parts department. I know it might not sound like much, but small differences have the ability to make large impacts. 

Our On-Site Parts Department Saves You Time and Money

While some repairs can be done yourself, there are others that require an auto technician. And, taking your vehicle to a service shop with an on-site parts departments has several benefits.

1. Your Part is Already in Stock

If you’ve ever had to go without a vehicle while your mechanic waits for a certain part, you already understand how valuable this benefit is. Our parts department has an extensive inventory, and odds are, if your vehicle needs it, we already carry it. The faster we can access the right parts, the faster we can get you back on the road, safely.

2. Less Expensive Parts

To maintain an extensive inventory, the majority of our parts are ordered in bulk, directly from the manufacturers. We pass those savings onto our customers.

3. Forget about Shipping and Handling

Another benefit of our bulk ordering process is that our customers are not charged individual shipping and handling costs. 

4. High Quality Parts

When your vehicle is serviced at Miller Auto & Marine, we use the replacement parts that are designed for your vehicle. Whenever possible, we carry factory-certified parts.

Convenient Access to Parts Benefits Our Customers

Nowadays, vehicle ownership is less of a luxury and more of a necessity. Being able to run errands, get to and from work, and transport your loved ones all depends on having vehicle access. And, by having an on-site parts department, Miller Auto & Marine is able to meet your service needs more effectively. We’re focused on getting you back on the road, quickly and safely – meaning you spend less time without reliable transportation.
