Four Things You Didn’t Know About Self-Service Auto Parts From Junkyards

If you are thinking about buying self-service auto parts from a junkyard, you probably know that a junkyard is one of the best places to acquire inexpensive auto parts, but buying self-service auto parts from a junkyard can have other benefits as well. As you decide whether to acquire parts from a junkyard, keep in mind the following benefits that you may be unaware of.

Many Components are “Like New”

Not every vehicle that enters a junkyard contains old components that have minimal value as repair parts. In fact, many new model vehicles enter a junkyard after a wreck or after receiving “lemon” status. While such vehicles are not useful as modes of transportation, they commonly contain parts that are dependable, undamaged, and appear “like new” in terms of wear.

You Can Apply a Parts Warranty

Some junkyards let you cover the parts you buy with a warranty. For example, Wrench-A-Part lets customers purchase a warranty for each part they buy. For just $1 per part per day, we give you the opportunity to protect your investment in auto parts. If the parts malfunction while under they are warranty, we will replace them with other identical parts from our inventory at no charge.

Engine Removal Tools are Available

Getting “self-service” parts from a junkyard requires you to bring your own tools to remove the parts. However, some junkyards will provide you with an engine pulling A-frame if you need to remove an entire engine. Remember, though, that you can only use this equipment while at the junkyard. You will have to handle the engine on your own after you purchase it and depart.

Transportation Equipment is Available

Some junkyards also provide wheelbarrows and wagons to customers to help them transport parts to the payment destination. In addition to helping you transport heavy parts, this equipment is also helpful for transporting collections of small parts. Providing wheelbarrows and wagons is only to the advantage of a junkyard, as it helps the business sell auto parts faster.
