If you are in the market for car parts for sale, you have three choices:

  • You can find a guy parting out a similar car
  • You can go to an auto parts store
  • You can go to car junk yards

We will look at all three of those options in this article so you can decide which is the best option for you. We are All Import Auto Parts, serving the Greater Fort Worth area for the past thirty years. Call us if you have questions or there are used car parts we can help you locate.

Parting out a car

If you live in a large population center, this is possible, but possible doesn’t mean advisable.  Let’s look closer at this option.

What are the chances that you will find someone, in your city, who is parting out a 2002 Toyota Camry?  If you live in a small town, your chances are practically zero.  In a large city like Fort Worth, the odds rise but still, let’s just say odds of 50% would be a miracle.

And then we have the matter of trust.  You don’t know this guy.  You know nothing about the car he is parting out.  Those two qualifications make this approach a crapshoot on the best of days; in reality, it is more mike tossing your money down the toilet.

Avoid at all costs!

Auto Parts Store

No risk with this option!  You go in, you order your car part, if they have it you walk out with it, and if they don’t they order it and you’ll have it in a day or two. The car part will be brand new.  You’ll have a warranty on it.

And you’ll pay full price for it!

Not bad if you’re looking for an oil filter or a replacement side mirror; very bad if you are looking for a transmission, because seriously, $2,000 hurts the budgets of most working people in today’s economic climate.  Replacing the brake drums hurts; replacing a transmission is a nightmare many people cannot afford.

So this option offers piece of mind, but also a major financial expenditure.

Salvage yard

Welcome to Nirvana for anyone who has money issues.  Respected and established salvage yards (wrecking yards) offer quality used auto parts at a fraction of the cost of new auto parts.  Savings can be as much as 50% on many car parts, and that adds up to serious money when talking about big ticket items like brakes or transmissions.

But what about a warranty on used car parts?

All Import Auto Parts offers a 90-day warranty on all used car parts sold at our salvage yard, so you not only save money but you also purchase with piece of mind.

A win-win!
