California Junk Yards Used Car Parts Salvaging And Recycling

By Earnest Younge

California, the state with the largest population has the largest amount of cars, and many of those that are very old or were damaged in an accident are placed in a junk yard or salvage yard for used part salvaging and recycling . Any vehicle, any part you can think of can be found in some of the state’s junk yards.

Some of these parts are almost brand new, salvaged from newly purchased vehicles that were damaged in an accident.

These parts are also much cheaper than rebuilt or new parts from the auto supply store, so given the state of the economy many mechanics, and repair persons drive to California’s junk yards to source used parts and accessories to repair and jazz up their vehicles.

California Auto Dismantlers Association (SCADA) , the enterprise overseeing auto recycling has engineered a way for junk yards, salvage yards, scrapers and wrecker services to communicate with each other, keeping a steady local supply and easy way to dispose of waste. The person who gives their vehicle to the recyclers has the comfort of knowing that some of the parts will be dispose of in an environmentally friendly way, while others will be made good use of by mechanics and individuals looking for cheap car parts to repair their vehicles .

No longer do you have to look at the yellow pages for junk yards in California. Every junk yard is now listed online; some even list the number of parts and the quality and type of parts that are available. Whether the customer is looking for the whole engine, or mufflers, belts, bumpers, wheels, headlights, windshield, tail light, radiators, brakes, starters, the junk yards have it all.

Car lovers with classic machines can find accessories dating back to the fifties. Foreign car owners can also spot the hard to find clutch or axle among the huge pile of automobiles

Although the saving on a used vehicle part from the junk yard is up to 80 percent discounted from the new part price, Citizens are warned that not all parts are the same and not all junk yards have the same supplies. Citizens are encouraged to bring along a professional, such as your mechanic to assist them in locating the right part to fix their automobile trouble.

In the end, California is on the right track in accomplishing two great task with auto recyclers: providing a place where people can get affordable used car parts and disposing of automobile material in a safe, environmentally friendly way.
