Questions to Ask Junk Dealers
If you are looking to get rid of a wrecked car or truck, you may want to turn to a junk dealer for help. Junk dealers salvage used cars, auto parts, scrap metal, and other items in order to sell them to whoever is interested. Here are a few questions you might want to ask to make sure you find the right junk dealer at the right price.
What kind of junk do you deal with?
Most junk dealers primarily salvage cars and car parts. However, many will also take old appliances, merchandise, machines, and other equipment you might have. Some junkyards don't deal with cars at all and instead collect old motorcycles, boats, and airplanes. Be sure to call ahead so you don't end up in the wrong place.
Do you offer free collection services?
Some junk dealers will come to your home free of charge to pick up old waste they are interested in. Many will actually stop by and pay for your old car or for scrap metal.
Can you handle residential and commercial removals?
If you have a lot of trash you want to clean up, it is important to make sure the junkyard you contact can handle residential and commercial services.
Are the parts I'm interested in for sale?
Although most junk dealers store a wide variety of vehicles on their lot, it may still be hard to find the part you are looking to buy. It is important to call ahead and ask if they have parts in the make and model you are looking for.

With the advent of web-based junk dealers, many such dealers are utilizing this valuable medium to sell their used car parts. Many sites offer junk yard dealer listings searchable by zip code, with ads from various junk dealers competing for customers’ attention. It’s easier than ever for customers looking for a specific part to plug in the part they need and get instant listing of which dealers in their area carry it.
These sites may also boast user reviews, directions to area salvage and scrap yards, and ads outlining auto recycling services. Residential and commercial customers alike can seek out the type of junk yard that addresses their needs, whether they want clean up removal, or waste collection. Buyers can visit junk dealers in person to browse the wrecked autos and inquire about the scrap parts they need.
By calling ahead to speak to the owner, or other worker, a customer can find out beforehand if the dealer has a particular truck part such as a door handle, for instance. The dealer can enlist the help of the database to search his inventory and pinpoint exactly where the part would be on the property.
The customer can then come down and locate the desired salvaged merchandise for sale, buy it, and be on his way. Junk dealers can wreck cars, machines, and equipment, store them, and strip them for parts. Other services include recycling, stripping, wrecking, and dismantling. In order to compete in this business these days, dealers must be computer and web savvy, able to utilize all that technology has to offer in the way of vehicle organization and compartmentalization.
