How It Works - Junkyard Rules and FAQ
We buy any Unwanted, Old, Wrecked, Junk or Scrap Vehicles and will remove them for FREE!
We will also buy your unwanted motorcycles!
Admission is $3.00 per person. Must be 16 or older to enter the yard.
Don’t forget anything! We have a small selection of tools for sale, and jacks and 4-ways available to rent, but it’s always best to come prepared in case we don’t have the tool you need!
Make sure you bring a penetrating spray – it makes pulling parts easier!
Protect your fingers and toes! Wear closed-toed shoes in the yard and gloves while you pull your parts. Safety glasses are always a great idea too!
If removing larger parts, you might want to bring a friend or two!
Many parts have multiple components attached, and each part is priced separately. Make sure you only pull the parts that you want, and please ask a cashier for prices if you’re unsure about something!
- Safety glasses, gloves and closed-toed shoes are highly recommended.
- Torches, granders, and spark or flame-emitting tools of any kind are not permitted in the yard under any circumstances.
- Scissor Jacks, Bottle Jacks and Bumper Jacks are not permitted in the yard. Floor jacks are allowed and are also available to rent on a first come, first served basis in the sales office.
- Bags and Boxes will be searched upon entering and exiting the facility.
- Any parts that you bring into the yard with you must be checked in with and marked by the cashiers. Any unmarked parts must be paid for when exiting.
- Pets are not permitted to be off leash. Aggressive animals are strictly prohibited.
- No alcoholic beverages allowed on the premises.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, so please be sure to bring all the tools you might need for the job! We are a self-service salvage yard, so we do not employ anyone to help pull or transport parts. Our parts are sold at a fraction of dealer cost, so you’ll save money by doing it this way!
The admission fee is to help offset the cost of insurance. Opening our yard to the public requires us to have a very expensive insurance policy in place, so this fee helps to pay for that and keep the yard open and waiting for you to visit!
The Environmental Fee is a 8.5% charge that’s in place to help us offset the cost of collecting and disposing of hazardous waste materials, such as battery acid, oils, antifreeze, fuel and gasoline, old tires, etc. This fee also helps us test and treat the area as needed to ensure that we are operating safely and keeping harmful materials from entering the environment.
A core is your old part! We have core charges in place as an incentive for customers to bring back their old parts so we can recycle them! If you buy a part with a core charge, bring your old part back within 90 days and we’ll give you the core money back – no matter what shape it’s in!
We usually have around 600 vehicles in our yard at any time!
Unfortunately, due to the nature of the business, it is next to impossible to keep an inventory of the parts that are left on the vehicles. Since customers are free to pull what they need from any vehicle available, it’s common that parts are pulled from one vehicle and carried off to another or left somewhere else within the yard or office, and the staff isn’t notified. Even if we only tracked 10 parts per vehicle, at 1400 vehicles in the yard, that’s 14,000 parts that would have to be checked each day! That would require a lot more manpower, which would mean higher prices for you. The lack of a parts inventory and the ability to operate efficiently with a smaller staff is a huge factor in why our parts are so cheap as well!
No problem! All parts sold come with a 30-day exchange or in-store credit. If you’d prefer to get your money back instead of store credit, we also offer a 1-year money-back option that you can purchase per part for a small fee at checkout. Tires are sold as-is.
Parts that are still within their warranty period can be returned as long as you have your receipt and the part that you purchased is marked. Unmarked parts cannot be returned, so please keep that in mind if you request that we do not mark your parts at the time of sale.
We sure do! We pay top dollar for junk cars and trucks, and we offer free towing within the tri-state area!
If the car is newer than 12 years old we require a title for the vehicle, and the title must be lien free and in your name, or notarized to you (unless it is titled in a non-notary state). If the car is older than 12 years old then we don’t need a title. We can also accept a current registration from Tennessee in lieu of the title, but ONLY Monday through Friday on non-holidays. We cannot accept a bill of sale.
