I just had my Ford F150 towed and was very impressed. I have a challenging driveway and they handled it just fine. These guys rock!

I took my car in for a fuel pump problem. The battery was also in need of a charge. They told me the battery was so dead that it could not even be jump started. I have driving for over 50 years, so I knew this was total nonsense. They also quoted me a price to replace the fuel pump that was $200 more than D&L Automotive, so I jump started the car without a problem and rushed off to get it fixed by someone I knew would not rip me off. I had the battery tested and it was OK and just needed a recharge.

DON'T GO TO THIS SHOP!!!!! My 84 year old grandmother needed a tune-up...2 days later she got her car back with a $832.88 bill...I'd love to say they at least found some major problem to explain the cost but they didn't. This is an 84 year old woman who drives to the store and back twice a month in a 2002 Volkswagen with 46026 miles on it.

I just wanted t thank you for your diligence in doing your job so well when you rescued me last week. It is appreciated that you exercised so much care insuring my bike got home unscratched. I know it’s your job but not everyone excels as well as you do. Thank you again and I enhoyed our little conversation on the long ride home.

We were on a trip and had an engine problem with our truck. These guys not only got us in immediately, they gave us a loaner so we could feed the family. They did the work quickly and at a fair price. A local recommended them and I see why. Hard working honest folks, it doesn't get any better. Thanks Guys!
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
  • Screwdrivers
  • Hacksaw
  • Short pry bar
  • Combination wrenches
  • Gloves
  • Safety glasses
  • Inch ratchet set
Keep these tools in the car:
  • Inch-drive socket set
  • Large hammer
  • Long pry bar
  • Cardboard
  • Coveralls
  • Two feet of pipe
