If you are looking for the best junk yards close to me, for junkyard auto parts, allow me to eliminate one answer immediately: the best junk yards are not necessarily the ones closest to you. And allow me to add one more qualifier: you might have to travel a few extra miles to find the best salvage yards, so gas up the car and follow these suggestions before you head out in search of used car parts or used truck parts.

Call us for more helpful suggestions regarding wrecking yards, and if you are in the Fort Worth area, call us for all of your used auto parts needs.
The Big Three when choosing the best junk yards close to me
How do you choose? You look for the following traits:
- Customer service
Please notice, we did not mention price among those three. The reason is simple: you will save money at any salvage yard. The industry standard is 40% savings nationwide, so saving money is not the concern you should have during your search. The three criteria we mentioned, however, are important and do distinguish the good salvage yards from the bad.
Customer service among salvage yards
One would think, in a highly-competitive field, that great customer service would be almost instinctual among retail businesses like salvage yards. We wish it were so. Good customer service starts from the top of the business, the ownership, and trickles down to the employees. It is taught to employees, and it is expected of employees. You will know a business believes in great customer service as soon as you walk through their front door. You will be greeted warmly. You will be asked if they can help you. They will smile, and they will genuinely care about your needs.
Warranty on used car parts
Yes, some junkyards like All Import Auto Parts, give warranties on the used car parts they sell. We give a 90-day warranty on everything we sell, and quite frankly we are amazed all salvage yards don’t do the same. Ninety days is huge when talking about used auto parts. No, it is not perfect, but it is the best in the industry, and you should expect it.
Reputation among wrecking yards
Ask around about the various salvage yards in your city. It will not take you long to get some rather strong opinions. Go online to their websites and read reviews. You will be building a relationship with the salvage yard you choose, if you are a DIYer, so take your time and find one with a strong track record for standing behind their product.
Wrap it up and put a bow on it
Finding the best junk yards close to me is a little more complicated than doing a Google search, but taking the extra time will be worth it in the long run. Places like All Import Auto Parts may be few in number, but once you find us, we will save you thousands of dollars over the years.
