Frequently Asked Questions

ANSWERS ABOUT PURCHASING A PART:

  • * We are a “Salvage” yard, not a junk yard. We take time to pull the correct parts for you the first time.  We are not a U-Pull-It yard.
  • *  Please have you VIN (vehicle identification number) ready when you call. This will answer all the questions we may have on your vehicle and insure that you get the correct part the first time.
  • * We take the time to carefully pull your parts, so you may have a wait time before your part will be available for pick up, delivery or shipping.
  • *Doors do not come with trim panels, mirrors or switches. These are sold separately and can be switched over from your vehicle.
  • * We do ask that you prepay for items before we remove them from the vehicle. If the part does not meet your satisfaction we will gladly pull another one for you or give you a FULL refund.
  • * We send you a text message as soon as your part is ready, this alleviates you having to call in and track it.
  • * Please be patient when you call in as we try and give every customer personal service for all their automotive needs. We also answer all emails if you would like to do that.
  • * Speaker phones are convenient but they are very hard for us to hear you clearly on, if possible try not to use them. If you do need to please be patient if we have you repeat things back to us so that we get it right.
  • * Please remember you are buying a used part, so there will be some wear on the item you are getting. We do try and tell you what wear or if any damage is on the item you are requesting.  If you would like we can order most parts new also.  Just let us know which way you would like to go.
