Options you have for used auto body parts.

A quick summary of your options for used auto body parts . . . you can shop through online sites like Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist.  This may be a tedious approach, and it may take a while to find what you are looking for, but oftentimes you can find great deals on used car parts.

You can check out the virtual online auto stores, sort of like Amazon for cars.  Their access to inventories is impressive, chances are you can find what you want, and it will be shipped to you . . . sight unseen.

Or, you can visit your local salvage yards, browse the parts on-site, or have them find the parts you need and ship them to the salvage yard location.

One other option, one which is more popular than you may realize . . . you can purchase a “junker,” the same make and model and color as your vehicle, and you can part it out yourself.  That way you have a steady supply of parts for your vehicle.

Which used auto body parts option is best for you?

Since there are what, a hundred million car owners in this country, it is impossible to answer this question for everyone in need of car body parts.  The best option is the one which fits your needs the best.  We believe, at the risk of sounding self-serving, that your local salvage yards are the best overall option, simply because you are shopping locally and you can develop a rapport with the company staff, developing as you go a level of trust. This is not possible with any online purchase.

Adopt a DIY attitude and learn how to save money.

We cannot overemphasize this enough.  Yes, you can make car repairs yourself, even if you know next to nothing about it right now.  There are YouTube videos about practically any car repair, and short of replacing a transmission or an engine, almost all car owners, with the proper tools, can make most repairs.  Is there a learning curve? Of course, there is.  Will it take time to learn? Of course, it will.  But you will save, literally, thousands of dollars on car repair and car maintenance over the life of your vehicle, and in today’s economy, saving thousands of dollars is something worth thinking about.
