There was a time when Sears lawn mower parts could only be found at Sears. Young folks today would laugh at such a notion. These whipper snappers have no idea how limited the market place used to be before the internet blew up. There were so many limitations on all products that it would seem crazy to this new generation of consumers. Mower parts were no different.
In the Old Days….
Back in my day, we had three channels that were picked up with an antenna that you had to turn by hand outside! Lunacy, I know. Now we have over a hundred channels in crystal clear HD. There’s nothing on worth watching much, but we have the channels. When you wanted fast food back in the day, there were about three options as well. Now we have a dozen places to eat even in a small town. When you needed a lawn mower part, you best get ready to pay whatever cost you saw first. Why? Because there was likely just one dealer withing driving distance. My how things have changed…..
Then the Internet Came
The internet made getting Sears lawn mower parts easier, not to mention parts got cheaper as well. There is more than one game in town now that the town is the whole world. From eBay to Craigslist to Amazon, there are parts galore at bargain prices. The marketplace expansion to the global community has made things better for consumers with mowers as well as the sellers taking advantage of these new opportunities. No longer does a guy need a brick and mortar building to sell mower parts to those in need of repairs.
This new marketplace has made for a better environment on some level as well. Mower junk yards are getting cleared out a bit with the “recycling” of lawn mowers. Whole machines can get parted out and shipped to those guys who need a new idler pulley or front wheel for that Sears mower. All these used up mowers don’t have to be crushed and melted down to base metal again. Their life cycle is increased with a bigger marketplace.
Save Money Online
I can’t tell you how much money I have saved by buying many mower parts online. The shopping is much easier as well. I am a home body so any amount of time I can keep from driving all over town, I will take it. I have bought oil filters, fuel filters, spindles, and even tires online. In the past I would have drove 100 miles to get all these items at the best deal. 100 miles of driving is not for this ole boy. I would rather let my fingers do some walking on the keyboard.
