Tyree Inc
Tyree has been a very helpful place, and stocks many odd-ball parts you may not find elsewhere. HVAC motors, ignitors, etc., plumbing parts that the big boys do not carry, yet at a price CHEAPER than what the plumbing distributor a quarter mile down the road asks. Here's a huge difference between Tyree and other stores. If there are calls coming in, they are helping the customer who is there in person. Rena has a vast knowledge about any damn thing in there! The comment suggesting you go to Kansas city is a bit ridiculous, considering that this is a hardware store located in Columbia FOR the Columbia area. Oh, and the price difference you may be experiencing may apply to parts or items made in the USA.

The mower repair man did an outstanding job! Would like to see him get a bonus. Can you help with that?
Tips & Advices
Aftermarket replacement parts can be perfectly safe and reliable, but be sure to do your research. If replacing a more integral piece, such as washing machine’s water pump or a thermostat for a busted water heater, it might be best to purchase new.
Replacement parts generally come with warranties extending anywhere from 30 days to five years, depending on the original price, the nature of the fix and the age of the part itself.
If you’re seeking new parts repair companies will generally mark up their prices slightly--particularly at a major national retailer. However, used parts are typically discounted.
Cheaper used appliance parts can be found online or at many local, independently owned retailers, along with ecommerce sites such as eBay. Major retailers, however, generally limit their selection to unused, full-priced options.
Second-hand appliance parts are generally anywhere between 50-75% cheaper than new ones, but warranties might not extend as long and the parts may be less reliable or come with a shorter lifespan. Be sure to research the source of any second-hand parts to ensure the dealer is reputable and the part itself reliable.
