I normally do not submit ratings for businesses but I just had the most amazing experience and I needed to share! These guys are definitely not the typical car dealers! This was the first dealership I visited because of all of their community efforts and I'm so glad I did. The staff was all so friendly and kind, especially Doug! He made sure to get me the perfect car and at a better than perfect price! The entire experience wasn't at all stressful and they were very conscious of my needs, my time and my budget. I highly, highly recommend this dealership!!

We purchased our 05 used Prius from this dealer several years ago. Just had problems with it (due to no paying attn. to the warning lights) The dealer has been nothing but helpful and have not had any dealer who cares as much and is completely concerned about taking good care of "down time" during our ordeal. I would not purchase a car anywhere else! Take a visit when in the market for a great used car before you buy. You will be "pleasantly surprised". Thanks Jack and Co. at Pleasant Journey
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.
