If money is an issue for you these days, and/or you have a love for the environment, auto recycling should be considered the next time you need used car parts for your auto.

We are All Import Auto Parts, a Fort Worth company which has been family-owned for over thirty years, so we know a thing or two about auto recycling and auto salvage yards. Give us a call at (817) 831-6316 for more information.

What you need to know about auto recycling

Auto recycling is the dismantling or a vehicle for its spare parts. Each year, in the United States, approximately twelve-million vehicles reach the end of their useful road life. Most of those vehicles find their way to a salvage yard, also known as wrecking yards, and there their parts are sold off to customers who are looking for useful parts at a discounted price.

Whatever is left after the parts are sold is crushed and sold to metal companies for further recycling.

How big is the salvage yard business?  Last year sales from salvage yards in the United States topped $22 billion, spread out over 8,200 salvage yards.

Big business!

How trustworthy are the used auto parts?

This is a question often asked, and it’s a fair one.  We are, after all, talking about used car parts, or salvage parts.  Yes, they are discounted in price, but still, it would be nice to know that used fuel pump is going to last a few months, right?

Reputable salvage yards like All Import Auto Parts offer at least a 90-day warranty for all used auto parts sold from their salvage yard.  Ninety days, or three months, is a very generous warranty when talking about used car parts purchased at a discounted price.  No wonder salvage yards are so popular in the United States these days, especially with the economy struggling.

What if the part you need isn’t at your local salvage yard?

Here’s another question we are asked often at All Import Auto Parts.  Say you come into our company looking for a fuel pump for a 1990 Toyota Corolla, and we don’t have any 1990 Corollas on our lot. What can we do for you?

We get on our computer, open up our “used parts” search app, which is connected to every reputable salvage yard in the U.S., and we find the part you need and have it shipped either to our salvage yard, for you to pick up, or shipped to your home.

And if that used part that you need can only be found in Paris, France, we’ll find it and have it shipped stateside.

It’s just that simple!

A final word about auto recycling

Listen, we understand. There will always be people who want new. Salvage yards are not for everyone.  But for those of you who are strapped for cash but desperately need your vehicle to run so you can get to work daily, a salvage yard is a logical choice for replacement parts.

Give us a call at All Import Auto Parts. We can find what you need, and sell it to you at a price you can afford.

We guarantee it!
