Q: Do you have the part I need for my vehicle?

A: You can Search Our Inventory to see if we have your vehicle in our Yard. We cannot guarantee parts availability, since we are a “Self Service U PULL IT” type yard; you’ll have to come in and find the part and pull it off yourself.

Most parts fit several models and several years, through our Interchange System, we can search for the part you need (Free of Charge) and provide the interchange information on it for you. With over 1500 vehicles on 11 acres at our facility, we have a large selection of parts to fill your parts needs.

Q: Why do some parts have a “Core Charge?”

Because AAA Auto Recyclers is an Automobile Recycler, we charge a “Core Charge” on certain types of automobile parts that are considered recyclable. This means they have a “core” price representing part of that value, which is used as a deposit to encourage you to return your old part instead of throwing it in your trash can. Here's how the Core Charge works:

  • The Core Charge deposit is charged at the time of purchase
  • When the recyclable component from your old part is returned to us within 14 days, the charge is refunded to you.
