The three major reasons to choose used parts are availability, price and quality. Used parts are readily available, reasonably priced, and were manufactured to OEM quality standards. Also, recycling through the use of used parts is good for the environment.
2. What is the quality of used parts?
Sheet metal is OEM quality. Mechanical parts are built to OEM specifications with consideration given to vehicle mileage. We purchase salvage vehicles that were in good to excellent condition prior to casualty loss. All our vehicles are fully documented with vehicle identification numbers and mileage stored in computer and paper archives.

In all cases, we are looking for vehicles that were in good to excellent condition and low mileage prior to casualty loss. We do not purchase vehicles for scrap.
5. Do you sell damaged parts?
Damaged parts are sometimes requested by customers because non-damaged parts are unavailable or there is an opportunity for substantial savings. We sometimes do sell damaged parts for those reasons. Often, damage is minor and repairable, such as a minor ding in a door or a scratch on a bumper.
6. Can you locate parts you don't have in inventory?
Absolutely! We have access to inventories from hundreds of yards throughout North America. Though most of other salvage yards do not have nearly the quantity and quality of our inventory, taken as a group there are millions of parts available. We know which dismantlers to purchase from where quality is an issue and can usually have your part to you within a few days.
7. When I buy an engine, what comes with it?
As a rule, engines are complete assemblies including manifolds, oil pan, timing belts and covers, fuel injection or carburetor. We Guarantee only the long block. The manifolds, oil pan, timing belts and covers, fuel injection or carburetor, are not. Starters, and front accessories, such as air compressor, alternator, power steering pump are usually not included. If additional parts are requested, we will adjust the price accordingly.

1. Why buy a repairable vehicle?
The major reason for purchasing a repairable vehicle is price and cost of ownership. A repairable car is discounted for much more than the cost of repairs. Repaired cars are often sold two to three years after purchase for near the original investment. Mileage and maintenance will affect normal depreciation in the same manner as with new or used vehicles.
2. How much can I save when I buy a repairable vehicle?
The amount or percentage of savings depends on the type of car and the model year, but is usually substantial. Of course, repair costs and quality must be considered carefully and factored into the total cost prior to the purchase. The person or company repairing the vehicle should always carefully estimate the repairs prior to the actual purchase. Often, two or three estimates are obtained by customers when they will not be the one to repair a vehicle being purchased.
3. Who buys repairable cars?
Most purchasers are repair shops, brokers, and individuals in the northeastern U.S. Some vehicles are sold in other areas of the U.S. and internationally when the price level of the repaired car will justify shipping costs.
4. Who fixes repairable cars?
Most rebuildable cars can be fixed by body shops and garages. In some cases, individuals fix their own cars, especially if there is no structural damage to consider during the repair process.
5. Where do you get repairable cars?
Most of our repairable cars are purchased from insurance salvage sources in the South-Eastern U.S. Some cars are purchased from automotive dealers, shops, and directly from individuals. In all cases, we are looking for vehicles that were in above average to excellent condition prior to casualty loss and will provide good value for our customers.
6. How safe are repairable cars after being fixed?
When properly fixed, repairable cars are as safe as other cars on the road which have not been repaired.
7. What type of title do repairable cars have?
In the U.S., vehicles are titled by the individual states and the type of title a repairable car will have depends on the state the car is titled in. Some states retitle repairable vehicles, Salvage, while others leave the original title with the vehicle. Your state motor vehicle department or our title department can assist you with this.

Does Action Auto Wreckers offer a catalog?
We do not have a printed catalog available. Given that we have 34,000 items available, a printed catalog would not be practical. It would be 2,000 pages thick, and would not be cost effective to ship to our customers.
One of the reasons we're able to keep our pricing so low is that we're online, and don't have the expense of creating and reissuing printed catalogs. This is especially so since items change as rapidly as they do in the auto industry.
We can assist you in finding whatever it is you're looking for - even if you yourself aren't sure what it is. Please E-mail or call us at 1.800.562.8811. We're familiar with every item we carry, and not only can we help you find what you're looking for, we can recommend products to best suit you and your auto needs.

2. Do you buy privately owned vehicles?
Yes. We do buy privately owned vehicles that have proper documentation and meet our product quality criteria.
