Used fuel pumps can be purchased at a junkyard, as long as the unit is in inventory. Junkyards often use the Internet to display their available inventory, allowing buyers to check online before making their way to the junkyard to obtain the part.
Salvage yard corporations, such as LKQ Self-Service Auto Parts, have an inventory search that shows what vehicles are available in their yard. Although the vehicle is available, the actual part may already have been claimed.
Other companies use auction websites, such as eBay, to list each individual part. This allows a user to pay junkyard prices without have to extract the parts themselves.
