LKQ Pick-a-Part yards in California are located in Hesperia, Monrovia, Ontario, Riverside and San Bernardino. LKQ also operates 14 Pick Your Part yards in the Los Angeles and San Diego regions.
LKQ Pick-a-Part and Pick Your Part yards are automotive salvage yards where customers remove parts they need from junked vehicles. The company buys salvaged cars and trucks from insurance companies, tow companies and individuals. LKQ is committed to protecting the environment by recycling all automotive fluids, metals and tires. For example, this company recycled nearly 500,000 gallons of antifreeze and over 700,000 tons of steel in one year.
Each LKQ Pick-a-Part and Pick Your Part yard charges an entry fee of $2, as of 2015. Sales associates are available for suggestions for compatible parts. For example, a customer may learn that Nissan Sentra aluminum valve covers from 1991 to 2011 are interchangeable. By organizing vehicles by make and model, LKQ makes finding the right car or truck easy.
Vehicles are placed on stands or pikes for easy part extraction. The customer, using his own tools, removes the part himself and takes it to the cashier for payment. Most of the parts available are original manufacturer-installed equipment. LKQ guarantees parts for 30 days for return or exchange, with an optional 90-day extended warranty.
