Commonly Found Used Auto Parts at Salvage Yards

This blog is just a quick article to better explain what used auto parts are available at salvage yards.  There is a common misconception that salvage yards sell "old parts" and "junkyard" parts.  This is a misconception. Most professional salvage yards are organized, courteous, have a plethora of used auto parts and even remanufactured auto parts available for sale. And most salvage parts are +40% off of the orginal OEM price, so you save a lot of money when buying used auto parts. Colorado's salvage yards offer parts that are commonly found out on the road.  We use supply/demand data to recognize what used auto parts are needed and do our best to purchase vehicles with those auto parts.  Many "Full Service" salvage yards operate in this capactiy.  Our aim is to provide dealerships, garages, shops, and the general public with almost any used auto part that they need.  There are "U-Pull It" salvage yards that have different offerings.  These facilities actually allow patrons into there yard to remove what ever they please, and are more often referred to as "junkyards".
