Are you looking for an “auto junkyard near me?”
Perhaps there are several auto junkyards to choose from, and you don’t know how to pick from among them? If so, this article will help you. We are All Import Auto Parts, the leading salvage yard in Fort Worth for over thirty years, so we know a thing or two about auto junkyards/wrecking yards/salvage yards. Call us for more information or if you are in need of used auto parts.
Two types of auto junkyards
There are basically two types of auto junkyard today; one is simply a recycling center where the junked car, or truck, is crushed and the metals reused to make new auto parts. The other is where the buying public can purchase used car parts and used truck parts, at a discount, for DIY car repair. The wrecked vehicles are obtained in a variety of ways. Some are purchased from private citizens. Some are obtained through car auctions held by police departments or city governments or insurance companies.
Payment for wrecked cars varies
Payment for a junked car varies from business to business and city to city, depending upon need. Some salvage yards will pay $50 for a wrecked car, running or not. Some will pay several hundred. The only way to find out is to call around and find out what each auto junkyard pays.
Cost of used auto parts varies
The industry standard for auto parts discounts at salvage yards is 40%. That is an average figure. Some offer 25% across the board. Some offer larger discounts on multiple purchases, and some offer monthly specials which can approach 50%-75% when all the savings are calculated. Again, the only way to find out for sure is to call around.
Look for monthly specials
Monthly specials can be a gold mine in savings. An additional 20% off on a used engine, in addition to the standard 40%, can mean savings of hundreds of dollars. It is definitely worth it to call a number of salvage yards in your area to find out what the monthly specials are, or get on their mailing list so you are notified when a special is about to be offered.
