Aussem's Auto Salvage
Looking for steering column to replace once damaged when vehicle stolen. Aussem's counter person took message and promptly called back with availability. On arriving to buy column asked about a OEM jack and clips for mounting interior trim. $10 for jack and they checked for clips. Returned with clips ... no charge. Very friendly, businesslike and prompt.

I had a broken window. I got a few estimates. What made me to decide with Miki's Auto they were the only place that stuck with their original estimate. This was my first time at their establishment and I would highly recommend them. If I ever need car repairs I will be back at Miki's Auto!!

This company was great to work with! I called and he had the car towed within the hour. Very fast service which was hassle-free. I have used other auto salvage companies in the Milwaukee area, with much more difficulty. I will only use AJ Auto Salvage from now on.

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.
