I-55 Auto Salvage,
I always get the best price on all used parts for my old truck. I-55 Auto Salvage has been keeping my 1999 truck running with over 300,000 miles. I have had to replace every part under the hood to keep it going, but it's worth it and all the parts I buy from them works for a very long time. Thank You

I-55 Auto Salvage,
One star because you don't offer negative star options. I called on a Friday to verify if they had a spare tire lift. I was very specific about my vehicle. I was told "we have one on the shelf." So I paid for it up front. Come Saturday morning I drive out to pick up my part. Which according to them the cannot find on the shelf. The counterperson disappeared for 20 minutes. When he returned he said he couldn't find it and would send someone to the yard to locate another. Well, an hour later the yard guy returns with my old part and one that was in their opinion CLOSE. It wasn't even close, especially when I gave you a duplicate. I wouldn't patronize this place again if they gave parts away. Worst customer service ever .

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.
