My computer had something making the internet not work. I took it to BestBuy and $140 and 2 weeks later i get it back with none of my data on it even tho I asked that all my data be saved. A week later it happened again. I asked around and found out that Andyray Tech does work like this. I took my computer to them, they got rid of whatever was causing my issues they said it was a virus of some sort. Also found all my data seems it was deleted but they restored it. I had it back in 2 days and cost me $80. Wow I wish I'd found them earlier. Thanks Andyray Tech

I broke down on a Saturday night when every shop in town was closed. I called this shop and he answered right away and told me to bring my car by even though it was late on a Saturday night. He drove to his shop and opened it up so I could park my srt4 and he quickly fixed it in less than an hour and charged me next to nothing. It service like this that makes me know there are mechanics out there that care about getting you back on the road rather then robbing your wallet. Absolutely amazing service.

He has always went beyond to help us and got it done correctly the first time!! And half the price of what Patterson said it would be. Dave,the owner, is super nice and even if it's a car type he doesn't work on he will help you the best he can! I was 7 or 8 MO pregnant and had an issue and Dave came in middle of the night and got me fixed up! Not many will answer at night let alone help!

This is the best company. They showed up at 3:00 am and towed our motorhome to their storage yard. We were able to stay in our motorhome until morning and they assisted us with contacts to resolve our problems. Clint was a great representative for this company. If the occasion should ever arise I would use them again. Keep up the good work!!! Alan - Denver

I had an engine replaced by Reliable, and they were expediant along with being very professional. They installed the engine and waranted my vehicle on top of that. Since then I have used them for brakes and wheel alignement. They are very courteous to the new customer and your wait is with friendsas they make you feel like you are with family.

We have two Honda cars and had them both serviced here. Dave (owner) is incredible! Reasonably priced parts and labor, and he is extremely knowledgeable about cars. He discovered some other faulty parts broken and offered to fix them. Will use his expertise service again and highly recommend him.

I pulled in to ask about a problem with my gauges and some other problems. They went beyond what is normally expected.

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
