Essential Tips for Finding Used Auto Parts

auto parts long islandIf you’re a penny-pinching do-it-yourselfer, the junkyard is destined to be one of your favorite places—that is, if it isn’t already. There are two types of junkyards: You-pick and full-service. You-pick salvage yards require customers to bring their own tools and personally remove parts from broke-down cars and trucks. A full-service yard will pull requested items and deliver them to the front desk, where payment is collected.

Both options can save you a boatload on car parts, but its finding the parts you need that can be tricky. Full-service salvage yards in Long Island, like Ace Auto Wreckers, are part of a network that allows customers to search for auto parts online and find out which junkyard has the requested item in stock. This can save you a lot of time hunting down a rare or unusual part. If you aren’t sure what the part is called, take the bad part out of your car and bring it to the used auto parts warehouse for help.
