What can you expect at salvage yards?
Salvage yards have filled a niche across the United States for close to one-hundred years. People have recognized, for a long time, that many parts on wrecked cars are still very serviceable, and there is good money to be saved by purchasing those serviceable, used car parts.
The one problem, in the past, in the years prior to the internet, was availability. When you consider the sheer volume of cars, trucks, makes, models, over the past decades, it becomes readily apparent that it would be impossible for one salvage yard to have every part for every car ever made. Thus, in the past, before the internet, it was a hit-and-miss adventure, going to a junkyard. You took your tools, walked among the wrecked cars and trucks, and hoped that you could find a match for what you needed.
That all changed, of course, with the internet and computerized inventories. Now there are over 60,000 inventories to scour, done online, and chances are excellent that what you need can be found, and shipped, in the time it takes to click your computer mouse. The internet was a game-changer for junkyards across America, and for car owners looking to save some money on car repairs.
How much money can you save?
The industry average is savings of 40% on used auto parts and used truck parts purchased at salvage yards. That can add up to huge savings, thousands of dollars, if a car owner does most of their repairs, and the internet, and YouTube in particular, have made it much easier to do car repairs.
How convenient are junkyards?
They are as convenient as turning on your computer. Most junkyards, like All Import Auto Parts, have an online car parts search page. You simply fill in the information about your vehicle, designate which part you are searching for, and the search engine will find that part and have it shipped to you, or to your local salvage yard. It is as easy as shopping on Amazon or any other online shopping network.
