Porter's Auto Wrecking
I called porters auto wrecking in September of 2015 when a woman hit my truck with no insurance, since I have no collision on my truck I thought this man could help me out,I was very wrong to trust Joe Porter . I paid him for 3 parts totaling 170. Plus tax. I did not get my parts that I paid for and then to add insult to injury he said I didn't put a deposit on the part I paid for. I called numerous consumer agency's and was told that he should have given me a receipt for the 3 parts but he just gave me a visa receipt totaling 176.15 no itemized list. Please be careful dealing with this man, he is dishonest and rude

theyre good with parts, theres no doubt about that, but when it comes to selling cars they are very shady. It's up to you to find out waht's wrong with it. In our case it as a bad rear end that we found out when we opened the trunk. The whole trunk was eaten away with rust, you could literally look through the trunk and see the ground outside. They refused to make it right with us and we hand to sell the car for 1/3 of what we paid for it.

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
