Parts to Buy at a Scrap Yard

All American Auto Salvage has been in business for more than 35 years, serving the tri-state area as an auto salvage and car scrap yard in New Jersey for those looking for used auto parts at the best prices.

What are the best parts to buy at a scrap yard?


If you’re looking for wheel rims, go to a scrap yard. Keep in mind that wheel rims can support a lot of pressure– so even in collisions they often remain intact. Rather than spend a lot of money on brand new rims, get some used rims at a scrap yard.

Related to rims are tires. You can get decent used tires at a scrap yard for a fraction of the price you’d pay elsewhere. And, in some cases, used tires have barely any miles on them, so that’s a nice bonus.

Mirrors and Windshields

What about windshields, side windows and mirrors? These are all great parts to buy used at a scrap yard. Need an entire window package that includes the hardware, power window motor and switches? You’re likely to find entire window packages at scrap yards, intact and in fine condition. Speaking of power windows, you can also buy power locks at a scrap yard.


Finally, consider buying a used transmission at a scrap yard. A brand new one? That can cost thousands of dollars, and your current vehicle might not even be worth such a hefty investment. But getting a used transmission from a scrap yard might be more in your price range, and do the job just as well as a brand new one.
