My experience with AFA was wonderful. They explained everything in clear detail with patience and respect. Mrs. Karen is a dream. She was very professional. This car dealership is very different from other dealers. They are the real deal.

Worst dealership ever! When I first purchased my vehicle, it was priced $9,995. I also had 4 tires go flat before I left the lot. After paperwork was filled out, my car total was at $17,800. I was financed at 39.99%! Coming to find out, they don't report to any credit bureau. After being with them for 2 years, and spent over $3,200 getting the car fixed and over $10,000 to pay for the car that wasn't even worth $2,000, I finally had enough and bought a brand new car for less than what I was paying for with AFA. These people will take anybody who is desperate and will screw you over without batting an eyelash. I did some research on them as well. That dealership is owned by a con-artist family. The father was caught and prosecuted for multiple charges including fraud, so now, the company is owned by the son. They move from state to state doing this to people! If this is your last resort, PLEASE look at all your other options before dealing with these crooks!!!!

My son totaled his truck and the police had his truck towed from the scene of the accident by a less than professional towing company. The first tow company refused to allow me to remove new items recently installed on my sons truck and charged me an astronomical amount to tow his truck only 5 miles. I called Mr. Hill and he was very accommodating and prompt. He dealt with the original tow company employees and had my sons truck taken to a salvage yard where I was taken care of in a manner that was above and beyond the call of duty.

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.
