If you are looking for “used auto parts near me” on Google or some other search engine, chances are great you will be steered to a listing for your local salvage yards, and it’s only logical that that should happen: for decades now, salvage yards (wrecking yards, junkyards) are where America has gone for used auto parts, used auto body parts, and used truck parts.

During the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s, salvage yards flourished. People felt quite safe buying used car parts. They knew they would get a good deal on price, and saving money has always been a good thing for vehicle owners.  But there is a new generation of car owners now, and many of them have never visited a salvage yard, and it is for that generation of car owners that we offer this article. We are All Import Auto Parts, serving the Greater Fort Worth area for over thirty years, a trusted name in wrecking yards and in saving money on used car parts. Call us for more details.

How much money can you save on salvage parts?

On average, salvaged auto parts will cost you about half the cost of new parts. That’s a national average and the price may differ depending upon where you live and the car part in question.

Those kinds of savings can be considerable if you are talking about a replacement transmission or replacement engine. Heck, they can be considerable if you are talking about a replacement fuel pump for a Mercedes.  And let’s face it, after the recession of 2008, and after the recession of the pandemic, saving money on car parts is more important than ever.

How reliable are salvage parts?

For an example, All Import Auto Parts tests every used part we sell, and we also give a 90-day warranty on every part we sell.  That, plus the savings, makes a salvage yard a very viable and attractive alternative when buying car parts.

What if the part you need is not at your local salvage yard?

Thanks to the internet, any part you need, for any make or model of car, is only a mouse-click away from your local salvage yard.  If we do not have what a customer needs at All Import Auto Parts, we click on our salvage yards app and we find that part, wherever it is in the United States, and we have that part shipped to our location.  One, two days, that part is at our salvage yard, waiting for your purchase.  It really is that simple.  No matter what you drive, and no matter what you need, we can find it in the Continental United States.
