Budget Auto Wrecking
For over 10 years I have not only bought my used cars from Budget Auto Wrecking but I have used this place to keep my cars on the go. Del and his son Rocky will always let you know what they can do and what they can't do (which I found is very little) when they work on your car. For those who know nothing about cars or maintenance of cars I have always had to find someone I could trust. For over 20 years I served as a Pastor in churches today I serve as one of 3 Chaplains in the Tulare County Jails. I am very grateful I found out about Budget Auto Wrecking because I do TRUST them. If you want to ever talk with me about their work or even my work my name is Chaplain John Sayers and my office phone number is 559 735-1770.

I have been going to Budget since I was a teenager. Del has always been honest and fair, a little gruff when talking, but once you get to know him s real teddy bear. He has taken care of all my cars and made sure they were safe before sending me on my way. I recommend 100%!!!

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.
