FAQS

WHAT IS A "SELF-SERVE, AUTO PARTS RECYCLER"?

TearAPart's store displays thousands of junked cars and trucks on stands, arranged in rows, and separated by 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 SHOULD I REMOVE MY OWN PARTS?

TearAPart's philosophy is: since you do all the work, you enjoy all the savings. Our parts are sold at a fraction of what a dealer would charge and well below the cost of a traditional auto parts yard. If you would like to have someone pull your part, please contact a customer service representative.

WHY BUY AUTO PARTS FROM TearAPart?

  1. Using our quality recycled parts saves money, energy, resources and landfill space.
  2. Quality parts at unbelievably low prices saving you up 75% of retail pricing.
  3. Our huge inventory includes lots of hard-to-find parts.
  4. Our parts are generally considerably less expensive than traditional parts sources.
  5. Our shopping experience and excellent customer service can't be beat.
  6. New vehicles arrive daily to ensure a fresh, wide selection of parts.

  10. We accept all major credit and debit cards and cash. (Sorry, no checks.)
  11. Open 7 days a week for your purchasing convenience.

CAN I EXPECT TO FIND HIGH-QUALITY PARTS?

Yes! Most of the parts at TearAPart are the original components the manufacturer installed when the car was built.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE PART DOES NOT WORK OR FIT PROPERLY?

If the part you bought does not work or fit properly and you return it within 30 days of purchase, we will either exchange your part or give you cash.

WHY DO YOU CHARGE A SMALL ENTRANCE FEE AND ENVIRONMENTAL FEE ON PURCHASES?

Our minimal fees help to offset the expenses of maintaining a state-of-the-art auto parts recycling center.

WHAT IS A CORE CHARGE AND WHY DO SOME PARTS HAVE THEM?

CORE stands for Cash on Receipt of Exchange. To insure that as many parts get recycled as possible, a CORE charge is added to the purchase price of some parts. The CORE charge is refunded if your original part is returned to us within 30 days of purchase. Think of a core charge just as you would a deposit.

DO YOU CHARGE TO USE A WHEELBARROW OR ENGINE HOIST?

Both a wheelbarrow and an engine hoist are available for your use, free of charge. No other tools are provided.

DO YOU BUY JUNKED AUTOS? HOW MUCH DO YOU PAY?

Yes! We do buy junked vehicles even if they no longer run. The value of a car varies depending on the model and condition of the car. To find out how much we'd be willing to pay for your car please contact our buying center in Ogden 801-564-6960 or Salt Lake 801-886-2345, or click here to complete the Sell Your Vehicle on-line form.

WILL YOU REMOVE MY CAR OR DO I HAVE TO DELIVER IT TO YOU?

We'd be happy to arrange towing for you. However, if you bring it to us, we typically pay more for your junked auto.

I'VE CHECKED THE INVENTORY AND COULDN'T FIND THE CAR THAT MATCHES THE MODEL I NEED PARTS FOR. DOES THAT MEAN YOU DON'T HAVE THE PART I NEED?

Many parts are used on more than one car model. We provide a FREE in-store, interchange system to locate other vehicles that have the exact same parts. With over 1,500 vehicles on location, chances are good we have what you need. Check out our Interchange System in action.

ACCEPTED PAYMENTS

Prices are the same for all makes, models and years. We accept cash and the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Sorry, but we cannot accept personal checks. CC-logosStrip
