3 R's Of Salvage Yard Parts - Reuse, Reduce, & Recycle

Used Auto Parts
If you are in the market for auto parts, your first thought may be to take a trip to your local auto parts store. While they may carry what you are looking for, there may be better places to secure your parts from. When you purchase your parts from a salvage yard not only will you save money on the cost of your part, but also you will be doing your part to help to save the environment. Just think of the three R's - reuse, reduce, and recycle.


When an accident takes place, or a critical component of a vehicle breaks and the owner deems it unfixable, there are many other components of the vehicle that are still in great shape. Many of these parts still have years of use left in them. With proper care, some parts may even live on to see owners after you. 

If you are restoring, repairing, or rebuilding a vehicle, you may find yourself in need of numerous parts. It may think that it is your best interest to purchase another non-running vehicle just to source your parts from.

Unfortunately, you may still find yourself without the parts that you need. When you reuse parts purchased from the salvage yard, you will be able to get all of the parts that you need without having to worry about what to do with the parts you have left over. 

Reusing parts not only help you but helps to create jobs in auto dismantling, as well as in the salvage industry. The money you pay for your parts stays in the local Corpus Christi community


Did you know that when you dispose of engine blocks in the landfill, they can take up to 500 years to break down? Your car tires can take approximately 50 to 80 years, the polyurethane cushions in your seat can take up to 1,000 years, and glass never really breaks down. 

When you use parts purchased from a salvage yard, you help to reduce the amount of waste that could possibly end up in landfills. This allows you to be socially responsible and helps to protect the environment.

When you purchase used auto parts, you help to reduce the natural resources that would be needed in order to generate new parts. This helps to extend the amount of time that these resources will be available for use to our future generations. 

When you source your parts from the salvage yard, you can also reduce the amount of repair delays you could be facing if you attempt to purchase new parts. The inventory of used OEM auto parts is large and comprehensive with many different parts from many different types of vehicles. If they are in stock, you can have them in your hand in a matter of a few hours instead of a few days or even weeks.  


Recycling auto parts saves you money. Depending on the part in question, this may range from a few dollars to hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. Most parts come with a 90-day warranty, so you are guaranteed that the part you purchase will work.

Recycling auto parts will save you time over a new part. Most are already assembled, and the old part can be pulled off, and the new part put on. This will save you considerable labor costs. 
As sensitive as vehicles are this day and time, they can easily detect when something is not right, or a part does not fit exactly as it is designed. You will not have this problem with recycled parts.
Recycled parts are original equipment. They are not aftermarket parts; they fit as they were originally designed to do.
