The world of salvage yards

If you are a do-it-yourselfer, and you already do your own car repair, what we are about to tell you about salvage yards will not surprise you at all.  If you are not a DIYer, but are considering giving it a go to save money, this article will be valuable to you.

Salvage yards are business locations where wrecked, abandoned, confiscated, or donated vehicles are taken to sell off part by part by part.  There are two types of salvage yards, the You Pull It salvage yards, where the customer comes into the yard and actually pulls the parts from the car bodies, and the most common type of salvage yard, where yard employees will pull the parts that the customer wants.  Usually there is a slight savings by pulling the part yourself, but there is also the hassle of doing so.

There are literally thousands of salvage yards in the United States, and they are growing in number. With the state of the economy shaky at best, thanks to COVID, there is very little doubt that wrecking yards will continue to thrive as people try to keep their vehicles running properly without paying a car mechanic huge labor costs.

But, why not buy new car parts instead of auto salvage parts?

Huge savings await you

The answer to that question is in the savings. Salvage yards, on average, save the customer 40% compared to purchasing new car parts. That kind of savings can mean hundreds of dollars per year, and hundreds of dollars is important in today’s tough economy for many working families.

We scour the United States to find what you need

Shopping at salvage yards is a pretty simple process.  You come to our place of business, you tell us what you need (water pump for a 1990 Toyota), and we see if we have that available on our lot. If we do, we retrieve it and sell it to you at a large discount. If we won’t, we go online, find that part you need, and have it shipped to us.

It really is as simple as that!

But, can you trust used auto parts?

Think about used auto parts this way: car manufacturers construct cars and trucks to last. They have a built-in life expectancy of at least 150,000 miles, if not more.  If you purchase a used water pump, taken from a vehicle which only had fifty-thousands miles on it, you are getting a huge discount on a part which most likely still has 100,000 miles left in it.

We guarantee every used part we sell

However, to set your mind at ease, at All Import Auto Parts we guarantee all parts we sell for 90-days.  That way you know that we believe in all parts we sell, and you can shop with more confidence.
