Rideshare drivers and pickups more than doubled in Brooklyn, Queens and other outer boroughs in 2017, and these drivers are seeking out Arch Auto Parts’ high-quality, high-reliability brand parts to meet the rigorous demands of high-mileage driving. As independent contractors, ride-share and delivery drivers track their business expenses carefully, and find that Arch Auto Parts’ discount pricing saves them more money than national parts stores. At Arch, they get the highest quality, brand name parts at prices typically reserved for commercial fleets. As this industry continues to rapidly expand, Arch Auto Parts meets the demand from rideshare and delivery drivers for car parts that deliver the best performance, fit, safety and reliability.

Like the best of NY’s ride-share and delivery services, Arch Auto Parts works NY-fast. Our counter staff are parts experts and will help drivers get the exact-fit parts they need for their car or truck – almost as quick as they can pick up their next rider. Most Arch customers find the parts they need in-stock at their closest Arch store. Arch Auto Parts also stocks many hard-to-find parts, not found at most stores.

As Uber, Lyft, Juno, and Via have grown rapidly in Queens and Brooklyn, Arch Auto Parts has welcomed this important group of drivers- who count on their car for their business.

Where do Rideshare and Delivery Service Drivers Go for Maintenance & Repairs?

As independent contractors, drivers for Uber, Lyft and most other rides-share and app-based delivery services are responsible for driving and maintaining their own vehicles. While their vehicles are under warranty, many will go to their dealers for routine service and repairs, especially while their cars are under warranty.

The most common new car warranty is a limited warranty for 3 years or 36,000 miles (for components other than normal wear and maintenance items), and 5 years or 60,000 miles for powertrain coverage (engine, transmission/transaxle, front-wheel-drive system and rear-wheel drive).

Since drivers with Uber, Lyft, Via, and Juno are often driving up to five times more miles/year than typical car owners, their vehicle warranty limits are reached quickly. These drivers want the OEM and OE-quality parts that dealers often provide- but with maintenance intervals coming quickly, many rideshare and delivery drivers turn to independent repair shops they trust to save money. They know they can get the same level of quality and reliability without paying the dealer prices.

Arch Auto Parts supplies OEM and OE-quality parts to dealers, DIY mechanics and retail customers, as well as many of the best service and repair shops in Brooklyn, Queens and Nassau County, NY. Parts are not all the same. OEM and high-quality, national brand replacement parts, such as those sold at Arch Auto Parts will last longer and perform better than bargain brand parts.

For most vehicle repairs, the cost of labor to perform the service is more than the cost of the parts. If the part wears out quickly, you will need to pay for parts and labor again much more quickly than if you had a long-lasting part installed the first time.

For example, OE-quality, ceramic brake pads typically last two to three times longer than budget brake pads. If you have to replace the brake pads two or three times as often, you are paying 2-3X more for labor- and often paying more total dollars for the parts too by the time you buy 2-3 sets of brake pads.

High-quality parts generally last longer, fit your car better, and perform better with your vehicle’s systems. By choosing high-quality parts when service is needed, your vehicle will not only run better, but you can also substantially reduce your total maintenance and repairs costs.

If you are driving for Uber, Lyft or another rideshare service, do you need to take your car to the dealer for service or repairs – to avoid violating the warranty?

The answer is No, according to The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency. “In fact, it’s illegal for a dealer to deny your warranty coverage simply because you had routine maintenance or repairs performed by someone else.” Always check your owner’s manual and warranty information for details pertaining to your specific vehicle, and what type maintenance and repairs are covered. Many warranties require that certain maintenance is provided at recommended intervals, and the owner is responsible for keeping records that this maintenance has been performed appropriately.

Where should I get my Uber or Lyft vehicle service and repairs- dealer or independent repair shop?

Many dealers – as well as many independent repair shops- provide very good service. Always check on the quality of parts that are being installed, and check reviews for quality of service provided by the dealer or independent repair shop of your choice. Arch Auto Parts supplies OEM and OE-quality parts to dealers, DIY mechanics and retail customers, as well as many of the best service and repair shops in Brooklyn, Queens and Nassau County, NY.
