B & O Used Auto Parts
I love this place! & I love the prices as well. I called and spoke with with the Lady in the office who was very professional when it comes to customer service and knowledge of the business. I told her I needed a used tire and to mount it on my rim and a headlight for my van. She said they would call me back shortly after verifying that they did have the parts that I needed and it was in the condition that I wanted it to be. I only waited a couple minutes and they returned the call. After removing the headlight I then decided that I would also purchase both of the tail lights as I needed one for my van and my wife who has the same van needed the other one. The rear hatch would not open making it impossible to remove the lights so I asked for help and they were more than willing to get the rear hatch open for me. I removed both lights and proceeded to the office to check out where I met Francisco A very nice gentleman whom I had a very enjoyable conversation with. I got my tire, headlight and taillights and left a very satisfied customer. Thank you I will be back
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
