If you want to get screwed go to LKQ and buy a part with warranty. 4 engines in 18 months>>3 defective engines of which 2 were bought with warranty and I never got a dime for labor. Everybody passes the buck, nobody wants to take responsibility. Stay away from this company if you have an option

Was my first visit to this place and the bald guy was a complete jerk to me after asking a few questions about pricing!! said something in the background when I was questioning prices with another employee about "what's this guy, a mathematician?!"Then when I went a few hours later to bring back the core he told me to take the core and my attitude out the door to the core pile. Will not recommend this company for anything. prices were fair but to charge an environmental fee on just a door is a little ridiculous. they get you coming in they get you leaving and they get you coming back!! Very upsetting visit. will never return!
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.
