When buying parts it pays to call around and look for the best price in each location. Some stores sell different styles, different strengths and different brands that all have different pricing. If you own a business it may be worth your time to look into opening a business account where you can earn a small discount for you and your employees. Each store is different so call and ask about their prices and policy. This is also a great idea when going in to see a mechanic. Some mechanics charge different hourly labour rates which can save you hundreds depending on the job. 

These simple tips will help you save money on your vehicle and put that hard earned cash into more important places in your budget.
