Automotive Parts markup - revisited
I go to an independent mechanic, but lately I'm been wondering about the parts markup %.
As a comparison for parts markup, I compare prices at Amazon.ca and RockAuto.
In fairness, I should likely also call APC, or NAPA to see what they charge for the same item, as that's potentially where he's getting parts from but I can't be sure.
Edit: called a local auto parts store - it's about 20% less than my mechanic's quote, for the exact same part.
So I'm content knowing he's being quite reasonable with the markup. So it's 'locally' very reasonable.
