Now, let’s talk about a pull a part near you.
What is a pull a part near me salvage yard
For decades, the only kind of salvage yards found in the U.S. were pull-a-part salvage yards. A customer would go to a salvage yard, walk among all of the old vehicles looking for a match, and actually remove parts they need for their own vehicle back home. For sure there were great savings to be had, provided the car or truck could be found to match the car or truck back home.
Why are pull a part near me junkyards fading from view?
And therein lies the problem with pull-a-part salvage yards. It is literally impossible to have every make and model of vehicle ever made at one salvage yard. Consequently, the old salvage yards were constantly suffering from a lack of inventory, and customers were constantly inconvenienced by not finding what they needed, not to mention the annoyance of having to take tools with them so they could remove used auto parts if they did find what they wanted.
Still, it was the only option available, until the advent of the computer and the Worldwide Web.
What you now have in today’s salvage yards
Today, it is not necessary for a salvage yard to have every make and model of vehicle on the physical lot. It is only necessary to have an app which allows each salvage yard to find the part needed at one of the 60,000 salvage yards across the country. Once that part search is completed, and the part is found, it is then shipped to the city in question. The whole transaction is fast, the product is secured and shipped within a couple days, and the customer does not have to carry tools around or become annoyed with the whole process.
Great discounts on used car parts for sale are still experienced by the customers, and in reputable salvage yards, like our own All Import Auto Parts, 90-day warranties are also made available, meaning good savings plus peace of mind come with every transaction.
Quite frankly, we are a bit surprised there are still a limited number of pull-a-part salvage yards in the U.S. They are the dinosaurs of the industry, in our humble opinion, and certainly not a convenient way to secure used auto parts.
