Went here yesterday and bought a throttle body from here and they marked it on the bottom. When you buy a part you obviously need to clean it with throttle body cleaner so it cleans it up. Well I didnt need the part so I came to bring it back to get instore credit and I got cussed at and disrespected by the people working here. They flat out called me a liar and started cussing. The lady that helped me yesterday was here today and she remembers me because I talked to her on the phone. The people are rude, disrespectful, uncanny and unprofessional in all way possible! I will NEVER come here again.

The girl that helped me with my car surrender paperwork was awesome. She handled my paperwork as well as 2 others at the same time and she did a great job. I would definitely recommend the Fairfield location.

Not good to sell your car to usually very low. However for parts they usually have what you need and for a good price. Negative is they usually can't guarantee what's on the yard but will give a best estimate of availability.
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.
