M & J Truck & Auto Recycling
M & J Truck & Auto Recycling not only repaired but brought my otherwise salvaged Chevy Silverado Z71 back to life! It now looks better than before the accident! After a horrible accident, the collision center told me my truck was worth $300 to scrap it. I needed my truck and could not afford a used one. I called M & J asking if they could assess my truck for any possibility of repair. We worked out a deal and my truck has never looked so good! The resale value of my truck is greater than what I paid for repairs.- Complete front end repaired (frame, fenders, hood, radiator etc, etc.- Complete removal of old cab replaced with like new (same color!).Prior to meeting the guys at M & J Recycling they were ordinary people I did not trust. Now I recommend them.

Cash For Cars
Cash for cars actually works. I was going to try and sell it online but I wok everyday and the car was just collecting dust. 1988 Dodge Shadow noone wants it overheating! They came over and cleaned up the street! Thanks guys. That car was pure garbage. Not worth donating not worth selling just gave it away and am actually happy :)

I felt good about the services. I removed my name from the title and she was gone. Pretty much the best way to sell a car in San Diego. I was told to donate it to the scrap yards. But if you ask them you can get a few bucks.

California Auto Wreck
I have been coming to California Auto to buy parts for my own car and also for my girlfriend car and I always get awesome deals. They have good warranties and even one time they delivered the part for me for free.

After I called a bunch of haulers, these people treated me really professionally. They didn't low ball me on the price and were fair when they came out. Well worth your time.

You can sell your car for cash to the San Diego junk yards. They pick up and tow the car all you do is make an appt. You get cash on the spot.
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.
