What Role Does The Part Exchange System Play In Volvo Penta Repair?



When you purchased a new engine for your industrial machinery, you may have noticed that your dealer offers a ‘Part Exchange System’ that guarantees to get you back up and running faster than a standard Volvo Penta repair. This may have left you with a number of questions – after all, if something is wrong with your engine, don’t you need a repair?

·         Less Waiting Time
The whole point of this system is to get you a part as soon as possible; at the first sign of a problem, you simply order the required component from your dealer. If they don’t have it already in stock, Volvo’s efficient shipping network will ensure that it’s onsite quickly. This means that you don’t have to wait like you do when booking in repairs.

·         Recycling Good Parts
Sometimes, when an engine is so far gone that it needs to be replaced, it still contains a number of usable parts. These components are placed into the Exchange System, where they are cleaned up into ‘like new’ condition and shipped out to customers when needed. If you are conscious of your effect on the environment, this program is for you.

·         Affordable Price
The good news is that replacing a damaged part through the exchange system doesn’t cost any more then a repair would. In fact, it could actually cost you less when you take into account the labor costs of having your dealer take a look at the engine (please keep in mind that some parts will need to be replaced by your dealer anyway).

·         Disposal of Parts
Once you have swapped the damaged part over for one that is working, all you need to do is send the defective one back to Volvo Penta where they will handle the disposal for you. They will also take the opportunity to inspect the component and determine why it may have failed to prevent it from happening again in the future.

So, if you are wondering what role the Part Exchange System plays in Volvo Penta repair, it is actually replacing it in many cases! If you simply don’t have the time to wait for a repair slot to become free, if you have an urgent job that you need to finish or if you have a little mechanical know-how, ordering components via this system is perfect for you!
