So much better than Nevada Pic-A-Part. I had an old 2002 Lincoln LS that wasn't running anymore which was stuck in a parking lot. I decided to get rid of it and get a little money out of it. Tried Nevada Pic-A-Part but let's just say it was a huge mistake. I filled out the form in the B&R Auto Wrecking website at http://www.autowrecking.com/ and Krista sent me an email the next morning and had offered me $300. I accepted the offer and Krista told me that Shari will give me call to schedule a pick up appointment. Received the call from Shari less than couple of hours later and they were able to tow my old car on the same day just about 3 hours from the time I made an appointment with Shari. Between Krista, Shari, and Rafael who towed my car, they were all pleasant to talk to, very polite and professional.

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
