I have been a customer for over 25 years and to this day I have not been disappointed or unsatisfied I had bought a engine from them and it did not work out for me after two weeks of driving I took it back to them and they ordered another one and runs great! You have to realize that these parts are used so all are not perfect but when I did have problem with one of their used parts they rectified the problem in a timely manner, I can say I've always have and will be a loyal customer!

They were very helpful. Fast and polite, especially compared to other companies that I tried. Most important for me, they had proof that they are properly licensed/insured, which 2 others companies I tried could not provide. I didn't want to deal with any possible accidents or anything I would be liable for if the sale was not properly handled(which is why I avoided Craigslist too, after a bad experience)Would use this company again in the future.

I didn't get as much as I was hoping for my car, but they offered the highest and were fast. I'd sell to them again over dealing with Craigslist
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.
