The Pull-A-Part company sells both new and used automotive parts and offers a listing service for the sale of used automobiles. Its website is structured for searching by part type. Part providers include salvage yards and auto parts dealers. Automobiles can be searched by brand, year and model.
The parts are best searched by type, as opposed to brand, and are priced in that manner. The company's pricing model is considered unique and affords the best value by avoiding increases based on the popularity of brands. Each specific part type has the same price, called a "core" price, regardless of brand, make or model. A deposit is paid at the time of purchase and returned once the buyer's old part is shipped back to the company.
