I needed a Steering Knuckle for my 1972 Datsun 240Z, they had one, reasonable price, got it the next day (I live in Salem, Oregon), got it to the shop, they should be installing soon... it was a good deal all-round. Helpful on the phone, and email. See pic, and you know why I needed the Knuckle. Thanks Bend Auto Recyclers for having the part!!!

My wife called three times before I went and picked up the part we needed. Each time they were super kind and helpful to her and had lots of information. When I went to get the part they had it waiting for me and was able to talk about a few other things we might need. Very excited to do business with them again. And their website is actually really awesome, organized, and easy to use. My wife commented that it was super neato. You can look for the parts you need and then call so they can prepare it for you. It makes it easier for both parties. Thanks guys.

This is the greatest place to get affordable parts for whatever you need. I have gone to a competitor at Redmond and I couldn't believe the answer I got when I asked them why they charge just to look for a part. The answer was, "Because they do it that way in California!" Central Oregon is NOT California! I will not pay an admission fee to shop for something they would make money on.

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.
