Salvage yards offer services such as buying of salvage vehicles and reselling them either as whole vehicles or as spare parts. Other services that salvage yards offer are rebuilding, recycling and crushing salvage automobiles.
Salvage yards deal with both private and trade customers. They are sometimes able to provide parts for old vehicles that are no longer manufactured or are not available from the local spare parts dealers. Salvage yards also come in handy to vehicle owners who like to save on replacement parts, as the auto parts available in these yards are considerably cheaper than those in car dealerships. Car owners and interested parties are able to find salvage yards through various means, including via the local garage, classified ads or the Yellow Pages.
