Al & Buzz Rose Auto Wrecking Yard & Repair
DO NOT USE THESE GUYS! Worst cuatomer service and way over priced! Al used to be a good guy amd work with people on average 50 - 100 dollar tows within city. After a small accident, rather than driving it to the repair shop as they and officers said, he took my car to HIS salvage yard and held it hostage for the payment of tow before they would drop off. More crazy still was when I called to learn that my car wasn't at Eagle Tire, they told me that I also owed them for the TWO days it was in their "storage". Once it was delivered and I complained about the fact no one contacted me to tell me it was in fact "impounded" without court order and I was going to pass on to our local authorities he replied: "I didn't charge you for storage!" the tow was $250.00 - For a tow, that if they took it to the place we said, the hookup time and drive took a total of 23 minutes. Attorney's and Drs. Don't make that kind of money!

Synness Auto Wrecking
Syness has always been helpful to our family. They've helped us find replacements for broken parts on about 6 different vehicles. Prices haven't been bad when I compared them to brand new costs and most of what I've gotten looked as nice as or better than what was on the car originally. I kept a 1996 >300K mile mini-van going with parts and pieces from them for 16 of its 18 years.

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.
Typical gear includes:
  • Pliers
  • Hammer
  • Screwdrivers
  • Hacksaw
  • Short pry bar
  • Combination wrenches
  • Gloves
  • Safety glasses
  • Inch ratchet set
Keep these tools in the car:
  • Inch-drive socket set
  • Large hammer
  • Long pry bar
  • Cardboard
  • Coveralls
  • Two feet of pipe
