auto recycling facts

Despite the popularity of salvage yards over the years, and despite the fact that there are literally thousands of them in the United States, there are still tens of millions of Americans who have never shopped at a salvage yard for used car parts, and that is partially because they do not know enough about them to warrant a visit to one. We will attempt to answer those questions, and fill in the gaps of knowledge about wrecking yards, in this article.

We are All Import Auto Parts, serving the Greater Fort Worth area. Call us for all of your used auto parts needs.

Now, though, let’s talk about all things salvage yards.  Here are the main questions we are asked at All Import Auto Parts by people who are considering shopping with us for the first time.

How much money can you save at salvage yards?

The industry average, across the United States, is for savings of approximately 40% on used auto parts and used truck parts. Please note, that is the industry average. It is entirely possible that you will save more on a particular part in a particular salvage yard.  Also, please note, a 40% savings is substantial when talking about a transmission or engine, savings of several hundred dollars at the very least.

Are used car parts reliable?

Used car parts are not as reliable as new car parts, but they are close.  Most new car parts, directly from the factory, are produced to function properly for at least 100,000 miles. Many are manufactured with a 200,000-mile target in mind.  This means that if you are purchasing a used fuel pump from a vehicle with 50,000 miles on it, you are paying a 40% discount for a part which will last you two or three years of normal driving.  With money tight, and the economy looking shaky, that savings for that type of guarantee is worth it for millions of drivers.

What if we at All Import Auto Parts don’t have the part you need?

If we don’t have what you need, we simply go online to our salvage yard app, and we find what you need at another salvage yard and have it shipped to our location.  Oftentimes the part will arrive within 48-hours.  It’s as simple as that in today’s online world.

Are there any guarantees?

All Import Auto Parts give a 90-day warranty with every single used part we sell.  We cannot speak to the warranties other salvage yards give; only to the one we offer with every sale we make.

Are there any special sales?

Stay on top of it, check the salvage yards websites, and keep your eyes peeled for special savings. May salvage yards have monthly savings on particular parts, like May engines 50% off, or June fuel pumps 60% off.  Again, those percentages can mean savings of hundreds of dollars, and in today’s economy those savings are significant for people who need their vehicles to get to work daily.
