Nevada Pic A Part is one part of four locations across two states: Nevada and Utah.
Cash For Cars
Everyday automobile accidents occur that renders vehicles inoperable or the cost of repair exceeds the value of the vehicle. Sometimes a car just breaks down and just ends up taking space in someone’s yard or garage. Although these vehicles are unwanted, there are still parts that can be used. At Nevada Pic A Part we will pay Top Dollar to purchase the vehicle for the public to pick parts from. If you have a vehicle that is wrecked, damaged or no longer running just go to our Cash For Cars page and fill out the form or call us at (702) 644-1881. We will schedule a pick-up and remove your unwanted vehicle for free and pay you for it.
Once the vehicle arrives at our Nevada junkyard, we will begin to process the vehicle. We remove all fluids from the vehicles to be disposed of properly to protect the environment. Of the fluids that are removed, we save antifreeze for customers to purchase in gallon jugs. Some aftermarket items may be removed and displayed for public purchase, especially popular items like radios and speakers.
Self Service Pic A Part
Nevada Pic A Part is a Self Service auto recycling yard which means that you can come out and pull the parts yourself. This cuts out the middleman which keeps the prices of quality used auto parts competitively low. Check out our Self Service Price List for Car Parts and Truck Parts. We provide our Self Service Inventory for customers to access so they can see if the vehicle they need parts from is available. Even if the vehicle you need parts from isn’t listed, you can always come down to the junkyard and we can provide a Parts Interchange where you can find a certain part on another make or model. To make you experience at our auto salvage yard a smooth one, we also provide a Yard Map and a guideline for you.
As new inventory arrives, we will remove vehicles that have been on the yard for some time to make room. Before doing so, our mechanic crew will remove all salvageable cores that have not been picked and pulled from the vehicle. Other items such as usable cores, radiators, and master cylinders are sold in bulk.
Crushed and Recycled
After all valuable parts and accessories have been removed, the final process of removing wiring and other remnant parts are ripped out, leaving only the frame. The metal frame is then crushed and stacked onto other crushed vehicles. Finally this pile of scrap metal will be removed by an independent contractor to melt down the steel frame to be made into new products. Everything that enters Nevada Pic A Part auto recycling yard has either been reused to fixed broken down or damaged vehicles, disposed of properly and not placed in landfills, or recycled so that the raw materials can be used again.
Using Wrecking Yards Effectively for Buying your Used Parts
You have had a 70s car in your garage for over a decade and you are working on restoring it; you need auto parts. The local parts store down the road doesn’t carry the parts you need either. You could shop online and find a number of retailers to order restoration parts that are either repro, rebuilt or were bought surplus. Or, you can stop by our wrecking yard and save yourself a bundle.
Get Used Parts Quicker and Cheaper from Wrecking Yards
You can get ready to use auto parts much quicker at a junkyard versus going to a classic car parts source. These places could take a few days to several weeks to get your parts depending on what you need, the size and if it’s in stock. With our wrecking yard, it might take you a whole day, but chances are you will be going home with your part at a fraction of the cost.
The “Traditional” Junkyard
You might remember the traditional junkyard which is less common these days. These junkyards are similar to a store for used auto parts. As they get new cars in, they strip them of the parts that are in high demand and stock them in a warehouse or on their shelves. For parts like transmissions, rear ends and whole engines, they normally stock those just outside the door on big racks.
The “Pick-a-Part” Junkyard
These are more common these days. You save more money because they have a bit less overhead. You do pay a small non-refundable entry fee to get inside the yard which typically covers a few dozen or more acres. You should always call ahead when researching different junkyards to see what they specialize in which will improve your odds of locating your required parts. You can always ask them to cross-reference the part you are looking for. This way, instead of just looking for a 1970 Charger, you can look for Chargers between the years of 1966 and 1974 that might have a lower control arm and torsion bar.
Bring your own Tools
When you do find what you are looking for in the wrecking yard, you will need to remove it yourself. Going to a ‘pick-and-pull’ yard will likely save you at least 25 percent versus a traditional yard. Sure, you will get dirty and spend more time there, but you are already wrenching, right? So, it’s no big deal. Remember, you will be hauling back everything you find as well as the tools you brought with you, so you might want to just carry in the basics with you and leave the heavier, larger tools in your car for backup.
Many people skip the junkyards in the auto life cycle and buy new parts from a safe, nice dealer with steep rates. However, if you want to add a bit of adventure in your car repair or restore, the junkyard is definitely the way to go before shelling out loads of money on new parts. For the inexperienced, junkyards can seem intimidating, but this really isn’t the case. Not only do you get a boatload of inexpensive parts at a junkyard, you also get a priceless mechanical education. So, if you are a gearhead, penny-pincher and professional widget collector or simply bored out of your mind looking for something cheap to do, pay us a visit.
