Mini World
I was traveling through the area and my Mini's coolant reservoir decided it wanted to burst in the middle of stop n go, I5 traffic. It was a comedy of misfortunes on my way to Mini World's shop. But once there, Edwards team got my Mini right in and an hour later they had me on my way again. Way to go! I get a number of customers from the Los Angeles metro area, I won't hestitate to refer them to Mini World for service needs. Euro Tech Auto Parts, Salem OREGON.

LKQ Pick Your Part - Sun Valley
Classic car parts I wouldn't bother here for. If you want to save some dinero on rims though there are Hundreds of cars just waiting to donate you a part. Environmental fees get added on at window.

I'm sure some of what the above parts station employees said is true as I've seen how they conduct business at parts channel. There should be a way to check prices online, because the wait is usually ridiculous, but they have the foreign connect and scrub part numbers off of parts for a reason.

This place is a scam. They sell junk parts and try to say they are rebuilt. BUYER BEWARE!!! I would advise against purchasing things from them. Especially large items (engines/transmissions)

California Auto Wrecking Inc - Nissan Place
This review is long overdue! I recently bought a pathfinder from California auto wrecking and it was a great deal ,they didn't (and never have since I've been here) overprice their products which is something extremely common nowadays. they had all the parts i needed and open every day which made it very convenient.I would recommend this shop in a heartbeat, they almost always have whatever part you're looking for and if they don't, they find someone who does. staff is very friendly, quick and negotiable with reasonable prices. so if you're looking for some Nissan parts i highly recommend this shop,you won't regret it.
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
