There is this stigma in American society concerning used auto body parts, and that stigma goes something like this: If the used car parts are in salvage yards, there must be something wrong with them.
Quite simply, nothing could be further from the truth, and in this article we will talk about the truth regarding used auto body parts.
Okay, let’s set about killing that stigma.
Used auto body parts does not mean damaged used auto body parts.
We would say, realistically, more than 75% of the vehicles you find in salvage yards are not there because they were in an accident. Most are there because they no longer run properly, or they were purchased at an auction, or they were impounded by the authorities and no longer have an owner. Even the ones which have been damaged in an auto accident have the majority of their parts fully functional.
You have all heard of the term “the car was totaled,” meaning it could no longer be operated. That is actually a term used by insurance companies, and it means the cost of replacement is more than the value of the vehicle. It has nothing to do with working parts or salvageable parts.
Used auto body parts come with a warranty at most salvage yards.
Wrecking yards like All Import Auto Parts give a warranty with every part sold. Ours is an industry-best 90-day warranty, meaning if that part fails to operate for a full ninety days, our customer can bring that part back for a replacement part. In addition, every part sold has already been tested by our mechanics to make sure it does operate properly.
You can buy with confidence from reputable salvage yards, and our thirty-year reputation backs up that statement.
You can inspect anything you purchase.
And speaking of body parts, remember this: You can inspect any body part before purchasing it. If there is a dent in that side panel, don’t buy it. If the bumper is bent, don’t buy it. It’s not like you are purchasing something online without inspecting it; you walk into the salvage yard to pick up your purchase, you inspect it to make sure it is undamaged, and you buy it. That, coupled with the 90-day warranty, means you can buy with confidence from any salvage yard with a sterling reputation like All Import Auto Parts.
