In the cotton industry, knowing that your equipment will work as it should is essential to success. And the machines you rely on should be relying only on tested and trusted parts. It isn’t rocket science. If your cotton picking machine has bottom-shelf, bargain-bin parts, it may run, but it may not run well or for very long. Does this describe your parts? Read on! You’ll find there are several reasons to get essential harvester parts from a reputable source; first and foremost, it’s important for keeping your machines functioning their best.
Without further ado, here’s why you should purchase your cotton harvester and quality-made fabricated replacement cotton picker parts from a Better Business Bureau (BBB) accredited manufacturer:
- Access to assistance: There are a lot of places you could go to get cotton harvester parts, but unfortunately, the quality of those parts isn’t always guaranteed. When something breaks long before it should, wouldn’t you like to know that you have a reputable source from whom to seek a refund or a new component? We certainly think that beats hunting down a number online, filing a complaint with a call center and waiting weeks for a resolution. Your business and crops are too important to risk on junk parts from potentially disreputable sources.
- Quality assurance: One of the main reasons to go with a BBB certified manufacturer is that you know the products you are buying are of good quality. When the BBB rates a business, they take into account all the unsatisfied customers and issues that manufacturer has had. If they are reputable, a good rating means you can expect that same level of quality with the products and services you are seeking. Too often people overlook the BBB rating and go with less reputable ratings—like online comments, which are not carefully scrutinized by anyone. Be sure to do you homework before jumping ahead with a big purchase.
- Price accuracy: The urge to buy an off-brand part can be pretty tempting—especially when there is a price difference involved. But remember that cheap does not mean it’s just as good. Well-manufactured parts will be more expensive. This is a result of the time, labor and skill it takes to make them. The inverse could be said about cheap parts, as they are cheap because corners are cut and the skill levels of workers are not as high. Don’t throw just any old parts into your cotton harvesting machine based on a low price tag!
- Right parts for the job: Too often, off-brand parts end up either not fitting or not functioning correctly. Be sure to buy the brands that match your equipment or a mechanic-recommended third-party part. Anything less could lead to other problems with your machine down the road.
