You no doubt have heard of a junkyard, otherwise known as a wrecking yard, or salvage yards. But do you know what an online junkyard is? Do you know how it greatly simplifies the process of purchasing used auto parts?
What is an online junkyard?
Most people, with a memory of junkyards, ask the obvious question: how can a traditional junkyard, comprised of wrecked vehicles, all physical in nature, be found on the internet? How is it possible for the physical to be found in an electronic thing called the web?
Well, obviously, it cannot, but just as you can go shopping on Amazon, or any website for any product, you can scan the available inventories of salvage yards and go shopping for used car parts in that manner. It is no different than going shopping at Home Depot, but doing it using their online order form.
How does an online junkyard differ from normal salvage yards?
The only difference between an online salvage yard and traditional salvage yards is the physical presence of the buyers. You never leave your home to use a online junkyard, but with traditional salvage yards you need to actually drive to the salvage yard and shop their inventory in that manner. However, having said that, if the traditional brick-and-mortar salvage yard does not have the item you need, say the original hubcaps for a 1970 Camaro, they will check the online inventories (online junkyards) of salvage yards across the country and find the items for you.
Stay local and shop around for the best price and guarantee.
It is tempting, then, to check out the various salvage yards, online, from around the country, in an attempt to find the best deal on car parts, but we would caution you that, in the long run, it is always better to shop local. Shopping local means your dollars will stay in the local economy, and in many instances, local salvage yards will meet, or beat, the prices found online from distant salvage yards.
Form a relationship with local retailers, no matter the nature of their business, and everyone in your city benefits from it. We should know, because our own All Import Auto Parts has been in business for over thirty years, finding used parts for two generations of Fort Worth car owners. That right there is proof that what we are telling you is valid.
One final question, one we are asked often: How can you rely on the quality of used auto parts purchased online, and our response is simply how can you rely on the quality of any product purchased online?
