The gentleman that assisted me was very helpful, knowledgeable and fair with pricing. They had the exact part I needed that I was struggling to find. He was fair with pricing and helpful with getting my car fixed. I would recommend this shop to anyone. All Nissan is the way to go. Ask for Sasha, he was very helpful and professional.

I went to this location as a referral from a friend and I can't thank him enough. I dealt with a guy named Tom and he treated me like I was a member of his family. He not only found the parts I needed but helped with repairs and gave me a great warranty. If you have any needs with your vehicle this is the place to go. I was a little worried when I first drove up because it wasn't pretty but when I left with money still in my pocket I realized how good the place looked..

I purchased the fan assembly (whole thing) with the warranty part would work or they would replace it...that over 2 weeks ago! Of course the part did not work, I have called this place several times being reassured that my part would be in STILL NO PART! Today I called again, 1st the guy said he tried to call me...BS and then he says he got the wrong part in, now he doesn't know when he will have my part! BUYER BEWARE! They WON"T REFUND MY $ AND STILL DON'T HAVE MY DAMN PART!
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.
