If you are online right now, looking for the nearest salvage yard, stop what you are doing and read this article first.
It might just save you money and a whole lot of headaches, broken down alongside the road, later on.
But, we promised to save you money and eliminate future headaches, so read on and that’s exactly what we will do.
The nearest may not be the least-expensive of the salvage yards
Salvage yards are basically retail stores where you can purchase used car parts. As such, prices will vary from salvage yard to salvage yard. It is estimated that customers can save, on average, 40% by buying used rather than new auto parts, but that is an average. Some salvage yards discount 20%. Some discount considerably more. Our recommendation: call around and find the best price for the part you need.
But, price isn’t everything in the salvage yard business.
The nearest salvage yard may not provide the best security
What kind of warranty will your local salvage yards give you? For example, we at All Import Auto Parts give a 90-day warranty on all parts sold from our salvage yard. Trust us when we tell you that is an industry-best in the Fort Worth area. That kind of security is what you should expect from your local wrecking yards. Make sure you ask for it.
The nearest salvage yard may not be the most reputable
Little known fact: there is an Automotive Recyclers Association, as well as national dedications and certificates for excellence in auto parts service. These awards are given to those salvage yards which consistently display the finest in customer service and outstanding product. We at All Import Auto Parts have them all, and we proudly display them on our wall in the retail shop. Look for similar certificates when you enter the salvage yards near you. Those certificates mean excellence, and that’s what you deserve.
The nearest may not be the most diligent
Do they tell you at the counter that they will try to find the part you need, or do they tell you they WILL find the part you need? All Import Auto Parts says “WILL,” and we do. If we don’t have the specific used auto part you need, we will find it from among the thousands of salvage yards across this country, and we will have it shipped to our location for you. That’s what we mean by diligent, and that’s what you should expect from your local salvage yards.
Yes, you may save gas by going to the nearest salvage yard, but you will not necessarily find the best products there. Shop around and find the best for your car or truck. You deserve it!
