Junk A Truck And Earn Easy Money

Over the years, I learned another little handy trick that seems to help when it comes to saving money on parts for my car. You know all of those old “buy here, pay here” car lots? Well, if you run into one that is locally owned, you may get a little deal on any spare parts that they have laying around. Many times, these spare parts are just lying around and cannot be used for anything in the lot. The owners of these little side car dealerships love to make a fast buck and are often more than willing to part with a few vehicle parts to make some fast cash.

For those who live near a car junkyard, this can be a cornucopia of auto parts. However, this can be quite time consuming, especially in large repossessed cars. You may have to search through hundreds of vehicles before finding the right part. It is also dirty work so wear old clothes. The advantage is the price. You can usually get the part you need at rock bottom prices and many junkyard owners will negotiate. Be sure to check out the part carefully as you can rarely return a non-working car part.

Let us start with ease of obtaining. Obviously newer car parts will be easier to get than older ones. A friend of mine still has a 1975 Pontiac Lemans. To obtain parts for this car he has to literally go to junk yards and even online. No new car dealers keep parts beyond 10 years or so and even auto parts stores limit their inventory to cars under 20 years. A 30 year old vehicle is almost impossible to find parts for. Plus, if you can find the part, depending on where you get it, the cost could be anywhere from 20 to 100% over the original part cost. To say that late model car owners are taken advantage of would be a gross understatement.

5 acres of land for pennies on the dollar sound great right? What if it is landlocked on all sides?? What if you need to drill a 1000 foot deep well??? What if it is an environmental waste dumping ground?? Get the picture?

However, some people don’t want to deal with the hassle. There’s a lot more to the car salvage process than most realize. If you decide to tow it in yourself somehow, there’s a few things you should know. You must drain all fluids from the vehicle, and in some case the tires are not accepted at the salvage yard.

Used parts are often bought in an attempt to save money and these are usually okay. Often the parts are brought back or barely used because they were not right for the vehicle. Sometimes a car is stripped of its parts after being sold and those parts are used in other vehicles. There is nothing wrong with these parts except they have been used, but they are cheaper. You can get really high-quality auto parts and accessories for a cheap price when you buy them used. You only need to weigh whether you want to spend more for new parts and have a longer life with them, or if you want to get the cheaper used parts.
