LKQ Pick Your Part - Toledo
Very disappointed!! I needed a wheel for my car and as this is christmas time, i didnt have money for new. I called and asked if they had a wheel for my car. I was told they had multiple to choose from. I drove 30 minutes on my spare. I get there and the lady gave me spotty directions to the 4 cars similar to mine in the lot. After trudging through the snow to look at the cars in sub-freezing temperatures, i find out that not a single car actually has wheels on it! Apparently they dont document which piece gets picked off the cars or they could have just told me they didnt have it! Not happy at all.

STAY AWAY if wanting to sell your vehicle! They will set up a time with you but not show up over and over again. Cost me an additional $88 before I called a reputable company to come get our car

Big Dog's Towing
This business was very unprofessional. They told me they would call me this morning to pick up my car today. I waited until noon. Called them, I got no answer. Called their other business number, I was told to call back in an hour. When I called back they said they will call me back in ANOTHER hour. 3 and half hours go by, nothing. I call them no answers on either phone. Still nothing and it's been 6 hours. I ended up having to call a different company and by then they couldn't pick it up until tomorrow. This company screwed me and moving out of my house on time. I highly suggest never going with this company.

Northtown Auto Parts
Bought an engine from North town Auto Parts advertised with 88, miles and was told I had a 30 day warranty and I was not allowed to see the odometer for some reason but I was assured it had 88, miles well as you can see from the report I got it has 231, miles and knocks like it's on its last leg now I'm stuck with a junk engine and a thousand dollars out of pocket, buyer beware you've been warned this guy will take your money and lie to you.

Absolutely HORRIBLE customer service. Transfered between locations and am told for an entire day that I'll be receiving email confirmation (picture) of the correct part and 3 inquiries have gone unfulfilled. The parts advisor for the heavy truck department is a TOOL and just likes to talk over you instead of being a professional. Kristen in sales from the Akron division has a typical cold call marketing attitude toward customer service. I was told the part was in their warehouse but there is no way to contact them, there are no phones there, and it impossible to reach anyone there via email or otherwise to confirm the part. Extremely stressful on my productivity in my repair facility and my customers vehicle. Absolutely no help at all. LKQ loses my business from here on out thanks to these two degenerates.

Lqk where great they got me the part I needed at a very fair price, explain to me the condition it was in and they where very helpful and professional. I would use them again and recommend them to my friends.
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.
