At a Pick Your Part junkyard, customers can search used vehicles for common, rare or discontinued auto parts. Since 1964, Pick Your Part Auto Wrecking Incorporated has operated numerous junkyards out of Southern California.
Customers at Pick Your Part yards scavenge for parts ranging from bumpers to headlight switches. The company removes gas, oil, antifreeze and personal items from each vehicle before customers are allowed to shop for parts. The spaces between vehicles make it easier for customers to look both around and inside each car.
Charities, insurance companies and private parties frequently sell vehicles to Pick Your Part yards. Prices of auto parts at the yard may be lower as a result of the absence of labor costs and mechanics. Customers use their own tools to remove individual, pre-priced parts from the displayed vehicles.
