Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Self-Service Auto Parts Yard?
LKQ Pick Your Part features rows and rows of cars and trucks mounted on individual stands or pikes, neatly arranged in rows and columns, separated by vehicle manufacturer. Bring your own tools to remove the parts, drive train components or any other accessories you need to fix or improve your car.
Why do I have to remove my own part(s)?
Removing the part yourself means we don't have to employ mechanics to remove the part, so, we pass the savings on to you. You provide the labor, you get the savings. Our prices are far below dealer or traditional auto store prices
Will I find high-quality auto parts? Do you supply an auto parts interchange?
Absolutely! The bulk of the parts sold in our salvage yards are original (OEM), installed by the manufacturer. We provide an auto parts interchange for our customers. If the car matching the part you need isn't in one of our salvage yards, use the auto parts interchange. Many parts fit more than one car. Visit the check out counter to receive an auto parts interchange sheet.
Does LKQ Pick Your Part offer a warranty if a part doesn’t work? Am I out of luck?
If the used auto part you purchase from one of our yards does not work you have approximately 30 days to return or exchange the part. You can also purchase and extended warranty to give you a total of 90 days! (The purchase of a 30 or 90 day warranty may be required at some locations, check your local store's prices page for details.)
Why do you charge admission?
We charge a modest fee to cover the basic maintenance of running a salvage yard.
Does LKQ Pick Your Part buy junk cars or trucks?
Yes! We’re always in the market to purchase junk cars and trucks. The value of your car depends on the year, make, model and condition of your car at the time of sale. Even if your vehicle has stopped running we'll buy it. For more information about selling your car to LKQ Pick Your Part , call (800)962-2277 or click sell your car.
