Al's Auto Salvage
They sold me an old rusty wheel hub (guess thats my fault because i bought it) but they guaranteed my money back.. Well sure enough it was a bad bearing and they pretty much called me a lie when i tried to bring it back and said i replaced their part with a bad one but who tf does that when in reality when i bought the part it came directly off a car they didnt even check it.. Welp my loss i told them to keep their raggedly bearing and they lil money they need so bad to get the extra raggedly cars they get their parts from...

Taylor's Auto Salvage
John Taylor quoted me a price for wheels with tires on them that were on 2 separate cars (3 on one car and 1 on another) after quoting me a price I went back into the yard to remove them from the cars. After I did the work of locating a set of tires and wheels and removing them from the vehicles and bringing them to the counter to pay, he changed the price. Not only did he DOUBLE the price he quoted me, but he basically stole my labor as well. I hope he gets plenty for that set of tires, I am a local and he will NEVER get another penny from me.

Pick-n-Pull
Waste of time. Always overpricing junk that don't deserve to even be sold by the help. Trash everywhere, outhouse is never maintained, junk cars picked to nothing. They take all the good tires, etc off, and sell them separate for cripple the price as advertised. Rude little sales manager,only interested in making fun of customers, and sporting her immature can't do attitude. Professional little rude eye roller should be her title. Does that to every customer in front of me. Try them, great for ruining a nice clean day. No place for a negative star, or zero???

St Louis Cash For Junk Cars
My Mercedes Benz broke down on the side of the road. They met me at the car, towed it away, and gave me more cash-ola than I ever imagined. Thumbs up to these fellas.

Great people to do business with!
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
