FAQs about junkyards in Saanich

How do I inspect a used car or part before I buy it?

+

Inspecting a used car or part before buying it is crucial to ensure you get value for your money. Here's a basic checklist:

  1. Exterior Inspection:
    • Check for rust, dents, or scratches.
    • Inspect the paint for consistency and color match.
    • Look at the tires for tread wear and alignment.
  2. Interior Inspection:
    • Check the upholstery, dashboard, and carpets for damage.
    • Test all interior features (radio, AC, power windows, etc.).
  3. Mechanical Inspection:
    • Start the engine and listen for unusual noises.
    • Check for fluid leaks under the vehicle.
    • Test drive the car to assess how it handles.
  4. Under the Hood:
    • Examine the engine for leaks, corrosion, or damage.
    • Check the oil level and its color.
    • Look at the battery for corrosion.
  5. Documentation:
    • Verify the car's VIN (Vehicle Identification Number).
    • Ask for maintenance records and any history of accidents.
  6. Parts:
    • For used parts, check for wear, damage, or missing components.
    • Confirm that the part matches your vehicle's make and model.
  7. Price Comparison:
    • Research the market value of the car or part to ensure a fair price.
  8. Ask Questions:
    • Inquire about warranties or return policies.
  9. Vehicle History Report:
    • Consider obtaining a vehicle history report for a used car to check for previous accidents or title issues.
  10. Expert Inspection:
    • If uncertain, have a trusted mechanic inspect the car or part.

Trust your instincts. If something feels off or you're unsure, seek professional advice or consider other options.

How do I negotiate the price of a used car or part?

+

Here are some tips on how to negotiate the price of a used car or part:

  • Do your research. Before you start negotiating, it's important to do your research and know what the fair market value is for the car or part you're interested in. You can use online resources like Kelley Blue Book or Edmunds to get an estimate.
  • Be prepared to walk away. If you're not getting the price you want, be prepared to walk away. This shows the seller that you're serious about getting a good deal and that you're not afraid to go elsewhere.
  • Don't be afraid to make an offer. Don't be afraid to make an offer on the car or part you're interested in. Even if your offer is rejected, it can start a negotiation process.
  • Be willing to compromise. It's unlikely that you'll get the exact price you want, so be willing to compromise. Be prepared to meet the seller halfway or to negotiate on other aspects of the deal, such as the trade-in value of your current car or the financing terms.
  • Be polite and professional. Even if you're feeling frustrated, it's important to be polite and professional during the negotiation process. This will make it more likely that the seller will be willing to work with you.

Do they have a return or refund policy?

+

Yes, many have a return or refund policy, but it can vary from junkyard to junkyard. It is important to ask about their return and refund policy before you purchase a part.

Some may offer a full refund on parts that are returned within a certain period of time, while others may only offer a partial refund or a store credit. Some may also have restrictions on what parts can be returned, such as electrical parts or parts that have been installed.

Do they offer part installation services?

+

Some offer part installation services, but not all. It is important to contact the business in advance to ask if they offer this service and to get a quote.

If you are considering having a junkyard install a part for you, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Make sure the company is reputable and that their mechanics are qualified to install the part.
  • Get everything in writing, including the price of the part, the cost of installation, and the junkyard's warranty policy.
  • Be prepared to wait a few days for the installation to be completed. Junkyards are often busy and may not be able to install the part immediately.

If you are not comfortable having a junkyard install a part for you, you can always take the part to a mechanic or auto body shop. However, this will likely cost more than having the junkyard install the part for you.

Do they offer shipping?

+

Yes, many junkyards and salvage yards offer shipping services for the parts you purchase. However, it's essential to check with the specific yard you're dealing with, as policies can vary. Here's what you should consider:

  1. Local Pickup: Some yards may require you to pick up parts in person, which can be cost-effective if you're nearby.
  2. Regional Shipping: Many junkyards offer regional shipping, which can be relatively affordable if you're within a certain distance from the yard.
  3. Nationwide Shipping: Some larger yards provide nationwide shipping, allowing you to get parts delivered across the country. This option can be more expensive due to longer distances.
  4. Shipping Costs: Shipping costs can vary based on the size and weight of the part, as well as the distance it needs to travel.
  5. Shipping Time: Ask about the estimated shipping time to ensure it meets your needs. Before purchasing a part, inquire about the yard's shipping options, costs, and policies. Also, verify the condition of the part and its compatibility with your vehicle to avoid any issues upon delivery.
