Trusted Auto Parts
They double charged me for a transmission and never delivered it. I can't get ahold of them and after 6 weeks they have not returned my money. I am sending a letter to SEN. Ted Cruz, maybe that will put some heat on these scammers, they are low life and need to be in jail.

Austin Junk Car Buyers
I had an old Junk car that I was trying to get rid of. I tried selling it on Craigs with no luck. I called this company and they treated me very well. They paid what they said they would and I can now carry on with my life. Recommend!

Austin Cash For Junk Cars
My landlord said I needed to get my dead van out of the lot or he would have it towed and I'd get a bill. Well that wasn't gonna fly, so instead I called Austin Cash For Junk Cars and I got enough money for my old wreck to put down on my next ride.

Tips & Advices
Salvage yards will have different policies regarding warranties, but, in most instances, the parts you find will be covered. Some salvage yards will offer warranties of anywhere from 90 days to six months, and may even offer the option for extended coverage.
After you've successfully found a part or multiple components, take everything up to the clerk. Inform them of what you have and pay. Avoid lying about what you have as a way to pay less. You will potentially be banned if you're found lying. You-pick salvage yards will display the prices for categories of parts. Prices may fluctuate depending on the demand. Harder-to-find items could carry a higher price tag than a brand-new one. If you are salvaging for auto parts, you might see items that are difficult to find and be able to sell them for a profit. Doing so can offset the cost of the price you're paying for the parts you personally need.
It is in your interest to call the salvage yard before arriving to see if they sell smaller components individually, because some yards do not. Some owners choose to not sell small components for financial reasons.  If salvage lots come across a door without the handle, they will have to pay extra to get the handle and attach it to the entire assembly. It is therefore cost-effective for salvage lots to sell entire assemblies.
When rummaging through a car or walking around the lot, stay aware of your surroundings. Remember, you aren't the only visitor looking to salvage parts. Other individuals are also looking for components, and not everyone works as safely as possible. If you find a car you'd like to inspect, make sure working conditions are suitable, and if anything looks suspicious or dangerous, find a safer vehicle to tear apart.
