FAQs on used auto parts stores in Philadelphia

Can I pull parts from vehicles myself at a junkyard?

+
โˆ’

In many cases, yes, you can pull parts from vehicles yourself at a junkyard. This process is commonly known as "self-service" or "you-pull-it" yards.

Before entering, you typically sign in and may pay an entrance fee or for a container to carry parts. It's crucial to follow safety guidelines, use proper techniques, and be aware of environmental regulations. After removing the parts, you bring them to a payment area, where fees are often based on the type of part.

Are they open on weekends?

+
โˆ’

Some of them, so check their operating hours.

Can I pay with a credit card?

+
โˆ’

Many salvage yards and used auto parts stores accept credit cards as a payment method. In case of some self-service junkyards, may accept credit cards for entrance fees or additional services, but many primarily deal in cash transactions. The nature of self-service yards, where customers pull their own parts, often involves a simpler and more straightforward payment process, and cash is commonly preferred.

What types of car parts can I find?

+
โˆ’

They typically have a wide range of parts, including engines, transmissions, body panels, interior components, and more.

What is the average price of used car parts?

+
โˆ’

Prices can vary widely but typically range from $20 to several hundred dollars, depending on the part's type and condition.

How long does it take to pull a part at a self-service junkyard?

+
โˆ’

The time it takes to pull a part depends on the complexity of the task and your experience. Simple and easily accessible parts may take just 15-30 minutes, while more complex components or those located in challenging areas of a vehicle could take an hour or more.

Can I return a part if it doesn't fit or work?

+
โˆ’

In case of junkyards, some have strict no-return policies, especially for self-service yards where customers pull their own parts. On the other hand, many salvage yards and used auto parts stores may offer more lenient return policies. However, it's essential to inquire about and understand the specific terms and conditions before making a purchase.

How realiable are the parts they sell?

+
โˆ’

These come from pre-owned automotive components sourced from vehicles that have been retired, damaged, or otherwise no longer in use. Quality and reliability can vary depending on the source and the inspection processes carried out by the salvage yard, junkyard, or seller.

  • Junkyard parts come from vehicles found in a junkyard, a place where decommissioned, wrecked, or older vehicles are stored, and parts are available for salvage. These are cheaper but less carefully inspected or tested compared to other options.
  • Salvage parts are components salvaged from vehicles that have been deemed a total loss by insurance companies due to accidents, damage, or other reasons. These are usually inspected and, if deemed usable, are removed and made available for resale. Salvage yards may have stricter guidelines for assessing the condition of these parts compared to typical junkyards.

While can be a cost-effective solution, especially for older or less common vehicles, it's essential to approach the purchase with caution.

Can I negotiate prices of used parts?

+
โˆ’

Is possible at some junkyards, particularly if you're purchasing multiple parts.
