Westside Auto Recycling
Best customer service ever!! I called several places to aid me in getting rid of my junk car and after getting several rude people I got in contact with Westside Auto Recycling. Its nice to know that there is still at least one company that treats their customers with respect. This company went above and beyond to make sure that we were satisfied!!

Family Car Buyers
Never thought that junk will come to my rescue when I needed cash urgently. I called up few dealers but the quote from Family car buyers was good, so I invited them to check my car. Since it was no less than a junk, I expected them to bargain...but to my wonder, they paid the promised amount and towed it away....thanks a ton guys.

SoCal Cash For Junk Cars
I live in the Los Angeles so I wasn't sure who to call, but when they quoted me more than I ever expected I knew I called the right place. I booked the appointment and they removed my Toyota Camry the next day! I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.

Did a quick internet search and found this company. They are professional, and gave me a us bank check, not cash for my car. Which I loved. They hook you up with a local tow company and its done. No hassles or bs. Got the expected amount for my lemon of a car. Yay!

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
