Are there any REAL online Salvage Yards?
While googling for online auto salvage yards, it seems that most of what
I get are offers for new parts, links to ebay, amazon, etc. Then I get
these sites that supposedly check all salvage yards, and for a cost, I'm
supposed to give them my email address and fill out forms. I actually
did submit one of these one time, and never got anything except more
spam email. Others really do not have parts lists, and just list a
phone number to call. It's more like trying to find a needle in a
haystack, than actual online shopping.
I'm looking for a simple armrest for a 95 Chevy K2500 truck. We only
have one local salvage yard, and they dont have one. The cost for a
replacement at a Chevy dealer is beyond what I'm willing to pay for a
new item. Ebay also has new ones for far too high of a price. I'm sure
that there are lots of these in salvage yards, because they are not an
item that regularly goes bad. (My truck was missing this part when I
I'm willing to pay a normal salvage yard price for this item, and pay
shipping since it's relatively small and light weight. I dont really
care what color it is either, just as long as I can get one.
Have any of you used any online salvage yards that are fairly priced and
will ship smaller items like this? Please post weblinks.
(This is for the United States).
By the way, if any of you have a 1995 Chevy K2500 Cherokee (or
compatible) pickup truck which you are parting out, and have a usable
spare drivers door armrest, let me know. I'll ask you to send a photo
and will pay a fair salvage price plus shipping.
