Millions of Americans sell their cars to junkyards, or sell car for parts to salvage yards, as a way to make extra money and to further help the environment.  In this article we will look at both reasons why you might want to consider selling your car to your local wrecking yards.  We are All Import Auto Parts, serving the Greater Fort Worth area. Call us for a price quote for your car if you live in the Fort Worth metro area.

The nature of salvage yards

Salvage yards take wrecked cars and trucks and sell the used auto parts, and used auto body parts, to customers at a discounted price.  Usually, the discount is in the 40% to 50% range, meaning a considerable savings for a car owner on a tight budget.

How long do the used car parts last?  This depends entirely on the part purchased.  Some used car parts can last a hundred thousand miles or more. Some will last less than that.  Reputable salvage yards like All Import Auto Parts test each part before selling it, and give a 90-day warranty for every single parts.  Is it a perfect solution for a car owner in need of a car part? No, but it is an inexpensive one, and oftentimes the price discount is very important and worth the uncertainty about the useful life of that car part.

Selling your car to a junkyard for cash

Salvage yards obtain vehicles for their lots either by purchasing them from private citizens, obtaining them through bidding at auctions, or having people donate them.

Yes, you can sell your vehicle to a junkyard for cash!

How much will you make by doing so?  This is a tough question to answer because there is no industry standard regarding buy-back payments.  Some salvage yards pay a flat payment, say $100, for a wrecked vehicle. Some pay more.  We wish we could give you a more definitive answer, but prices range wildly depending upon where you live.

Selling your car, or donating your car, for environment

There are also people who simply donate, or sell, their cars to salvage yards for recycling purposes.  In other words, to help the environment.  Every used car part resold means less mining for metals to make new parts, and whatever is left over, after all the parts have been sold off in a salvage yard, is recycled, melted down, and used to make new car parts.  The point being that the reuse of used auto parts is much, much better on the environment, using fewer natural resources and less energy.  For those concerned about Mother Earth, this is a logical and responsible action to take.
