the best of Fort Worth salvage yards near me search

We continue to shoot down misconceptions about salvage yards in this article.  Despite the fact that wrecking yards have been a part of the American landscape for over a century, they are still misunderstood by a majority of the populace.  Let’s continue, then, with an insider’s opinion of when salvage yards are a good idea, and when they are not.

We are All Import Auto Parts, serving the Greater Fort Worth area with outstanding, and affordable, used car parts and used truck parts, foreign and domestic.  Call us when you need to save some money but still need to purchase with confidence.

The pros of purchasing from salvage yards.

First, and foremost, used auto parts save you money, and over time they save you a great deal of money.

The industry average is 40% savings, nationwide.  If the average driver owns a vehicle for thirty years, and spends, on average, a thousand dollars per year on repair and maintenance, then we are looking at a savings of approximately twenty thousand dollars over that span.  That is a lot of money, folks. What could you do with twenty thousand dollars?  Invest it? Child’s college fund? Downpayment on a small home?

Suddenly, the idea of doing your own car repair and maintenance sounds very appealing, right?

One other consideration which is rarely mentioned in articles like this one: there is a trust factor at play when purchasing auto parts from a salvage yard. Many people do not trust mechanics.  It’s been that way forever, and the reason for it is simply because most car owners know nothing about car repair, so they need to trust in a complete stranger.  That trust is not needed if you are doing the work yourself.

The cons of purchasing from wrecking yards.

The major roadblock stopping most people from doing their own car maintenance and repair is this: either they lack the confidence to do the work, or they lack the skills to do the work.  We should probably toss in the time factor, as well.  In this busy world we live in, many people will say they do not have the time to invest in car maintenance, an excuse which may, or may not, be valid.

Despite the fact that most car maintenance can literally be learned by watching a few YouTube videos, this confidence factor is very real.  If you simply do not trust in yourself doing the job correctly, or you do not trust in your local salvage yard, then by all means find yourself a local car garage and let them do the work for you.  It will cost you more money, but it will also relieve you of the stress, and free up time for you to pursue other interests.

Find the best and forget about the rest.

If you should choose to do it yourself, and purchase from a local salvage yard, we recommend doing some sleuthing first.  Ask around. Check out reviews.  It will not take you long to find the cream of the crop in salvage yards.  Word spreads very quickly throughout any community regarding good, and bad, businesses.  You just need to do the footwork and gather some information.
