They treat their customers like garbage if the are not happy with they parts they are being sold. They tried to sell me an engine that looked like it was on the Titanic, and got NASTY when I told them I didn't want it. Started cussing and said I had a bad attitude and needed to start driving better vehicles instead of the junk I was driving! Bad, bad, bad. Go elsewhere.

Terrible place to conduct business. All the vehicles have been thoroughly picked through and have been filled with trash, shredded parts, etc. Don't waste your time coming to this junk yard. The yard is barely trek-able. The roads are very rutted out with immense amounts of rusty sharp metal, broken glass, snakes, bees and thick nasty oil and antifreeze soaked mud. the employees do not know how to treat their customers and they do not seem that interested in conducting any amount of real business.
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.
