Doug Buys Junk Cars!
A total no show! How disappointing! After waiting for over an hour we had to call someone else. This will not be one of the places we visit to buy a used car.

Best company they pay the most for junk cars. Gave me 275 for my car. Nobody else came close to the price.

I made an account so I could write him a review!! This guy is bogus, don't do business with him. I called him at 9am he said he was on his way to me, noon comes and no show. Called him numerous times and no show. Finally he answers and says he is on Ireland coming to me. Never shows up. He hung up on me too. Shady dude. Not good business at all!!

A1 Auto Salvage
Do not under any circumstances hire this man, Asher Ray. He has no experience, a terrible work ethic and is dishonest. He kept raising his original estimate. He has 70 percent of his fee paid before and during the job and then walked away from it, leaving his crew unpaid and me without my job done and not even the parts to complete it. This is supposed to be a review for A-1 Home Services, but YP took me to this website for the review, so apparently, A-1 is not the only problem here.
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.
