How to Pull Used Car Parts at a Junkyard in Texas

If you are tired of paying full price for repair parts at auto dealers at auto repair shops, it’s time to get used car parts at a junkyard in Texas. If you are accustomed to sending your car to a mechanic, you may lack experience in buying car parts from salvage lots, but rest assured, it isn’t difficult; and considering the money you’ll save, it’s definitely worth it. If you have never pulled used car parts at a junkyard in Texas, below is a simple guide for how to do it.

Bring Your Tools

Junkyards don’t provide hand tools for obvious reasons: it would be hard to have enough tools for everyone, and many of the tools would end up disappearing. If you don’t have a tool box, now is a good time to invest in one. By paying around $50 for a set of hand tools now, you can save thousands of dollars over the years by getting used car parts from a junkyard in Texas.

Ask About Assistance

Many junkyards supply certain types of equipment for free, such as engine pulling A-frames for lifting engines, and wheelbarrows and wagons for transporting parts. At Wrench-A-Part, we provide these pieces of equipment to our customers free of charge. If you need help pulling an engine or transporting a collection of parts, we have the equipment you need to do it.

Wear Protective Clothing

You don’t have to show up in a full bodied mechanic’s suit — though that isn’t a bad idea — but you will need to wear close toed shoes; and wearing long sleeves and gloves is a good idea, too. Before you show up at a junkyard, visit its website and check out the clothing requirements. It beats having to go home and change into new clothes after you arrive onsite.

Observe Safety Rules

In addition to regulating what you can wear, most junkyards require you to follow a code of conduct that helps keep everyone safe. For example, potential sources of fire, such as cigarettes and cutting torches, will almost certainly be prohibited, and you won’t be able to bring alcohol inside the gate either. You can learn a junkyard’s safety rules by visiting its website.
