SUPPORT CLIFFORD’S ARMY RESCUE EXTRAVAGANZA

Rainbow BridgeOn September 2nd of this year, sweet Molli crossed Rainbow Bridge.  We still miss her very much.

In the weeks following Molli’s passing, her best buddy in the whole wide world, our owner Jerry Allen, realized that he needed to find a way to turn this heart-breaking loss into a positive —  to whatever degree possible.  After much consideration, Jerry decided to assist a local organization that does a wonderful job of saving abandoned, homeless animals in Cleveland County andMiss Molli surrounding areas.  That organization is Clifford’s Army Rescue Extravaganza, also known as C.A.R.E., for short.

We are placing banks in trustworthy local businesses where caring people can donate their change to this admirable cause and help save these poor defenseless animals from an early and unnecessary death.  If you own or know of a local business that you believe would be a great location for one of these banks, please let us know.

And if you are willing to donate time, money, or pet supplies to C.A.R.E., know that you couldn’t help a better Bank for Clifford's Army Rescue Extravaganzaorganization and that anything you donate will be much appreciated.  No donation is too small.

Thank you in advance for anything that you can do to help save these animals and to support Clifford’s Army Rescue Extravaganza.

Molli - Queen of Parts

Miss Molli loved to ride — cars, boats, whatever. As long as she was with her Jerry, life was good.

HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS

Free Candy to Children in Costume on Halloween DayHalloween should be a fun day for our children. Let’s all do our parts to make sure they stay safe while they are out trick-or-treating and afterwards as they devour their bounty.

Here are a few safety tips from the CDC that we would all be wise to follow:

Going trick-or-treating?

Swords, knives, and other costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible.

Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.

Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.

Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats you eat.

 

Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. Always WALK and don’t run from house to house.

Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation.

Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks wherever possible.

Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearingdecorative contact lenses.

Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe.

Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.

Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.

Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Never accept rides from strangers.

Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes.

You will find more great Halloween Safety Tips at the CDC’s website and at Safe Kids Worldwide. You may also want to check the National Sex Offenders Registry by Family Watchdog for any area where you plan to allow your children to trick-or-treat.

Remember, Auto Parts of Shelby will be giving away candy to children in costume today from 8:00am to 5:00pm. If you’re in our area, we would love for you to drop by our office at 1021 County Home Road in Shelby, NC.

Stay safe out there this evening. Please do your part to help protect all children and animals by simply following a few Halloween Safety Tips.

WHAT IS TEAM PRP?

What is Team PRP and How Does It Benefit Me?

Team PRP LogoGood questions. Let’s start by defining the name. First, “PRP” is an acronym for Premium Recycled Parts. And “Team PRP” is a nationwide network of independently owned automotive recyclers with millions of quality used and remanufactured auto parts in stock – ready for delivery to discerning customers who value a dollar.

Every Team PRP member is required to uphold specific standards and practices. Here are some of the benefits you gain by dealing with Auto Parts of Shelby, a proud Team PRP member:

WARRANTIES

Our warranties are some of the strongest in the business.

Buy With Confidence red and gold medallionEvery part we sell is covered by our standard 90-Day Warranty* at no extra cost to our customers. If you purchase a part from us and your part fails within 90 days of purchase, return it to us and receive an exchange part or full credit toward your next purchase at Auto Parts of Shelby. What’s more, for our customers who want even better coverage, we offer the opportunity to purchase Silver (6-month), Gold (1-year), or Platinum (5-year) Extended Warranties*. And as you may have already heard, our awesome Remanufactured Engines & Transmissions come with a fabulous 3-Year/100,000-Mile Parts and Labor Warranty* included.

*Some conditions and limitations may apply. Ask your salesperson for details.

NATIONWIDE STANDARDS

Each Team PRP member uses an identical quality assurance program based on ISO 9000 standards. The result is a nationwide label that delivers consistently high quality parts and maximizes consumer, mechanical repairer, collision center, and estimator confidence. If we don’t stock the part you need on site at Auto Parts of Shelby, rest assured that any parts we get from our Team PRP partners will also be excellent quality and carry the same superb warranties.

REDUCED CYCLE TIME

Team PRP members ship and deliver parts faster than our competitors. All Team PRP members share inventories regionally and nationally, with a nationwide delivery system that is both fast and dependable. Immediate parts availability throughout our extensive network and a 24-Hour In-Stock Shipping Policy ensure our customers get what they need quickly.

NO SUPPLEMENTS AND NO SURPRISES

We pay any supplements on our parts and communicate with the estimator and repairer so there won’t be any surprises.

CONVENIENCE

Your call, fax, or e-mail will guarantee a quick response from one of our expert sales staff.

QUOTE GUARANTEE

Our quotes are guaranteed a minimum of 7 days. If the part we quoted has been sold to another customer, we will do our best to find you another part at the same price. Finding that replacement part is based on availability, of course.

NO-HASSLE RETURN POLICY

We have a 30-Day, No-Hassle Return Policy.

REMANUFACTURED ENGINES AND TRANSMISSIONS

Remanufactured Engine We offer Team PRP branded remanufactured engines and transmissions. These products are manufactured under the strictest of standards. Our 3-Year/100,00-Mile Parts and Labor Warranty* attests to the superior quality of these remanufactured engines and transmissions.

*Some conditions and limitations may apply. Ask your salesperson for details.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

Re-using auto parts and recycling those parts that can’t be re-used are great for our environment. Even most automotive fluids can be re-used or recycled.  For example, at Auto Parts of Shelby, we recycle certain automotive fluids by using them to heat our warehouse each winter.  In fact, as it turns out, about 95% of an end-of-life vehicle can be used or recycled!  Pretty awesome, huh?  And of course, that benefits us all.

Here’s more about Team PRP, what it means to you, the customer, and what it means to our environment:
