This shops right around the corner from my house. They've been there for years and always help out the neighborhood since the city doesnt. I see this man out there mowing the easement in the summer and plowing the streels in the winter time. When the motor blew in my Charger I knew just where to go. Jeff personally delivered the motor to my mechanic within an hour after I bought it and I couldn't be happier. Gotta give credit where credits due.

My cousin and I drove 3 hours for a transmission because they had it for half the price of any other yard. I drive 40k miles a year and this trans still hasn't let me down. Highly recommended!!!! Thank you!

This will be the fifth engine I've bought from GMB and he even gave me a discount for being a return customer! I send customers from all over Chicagoland to him. Always worth the drive.

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.

  • Pliers
