What is a Self Serve Auto Parts Recycler?

Rusty's Pic-A-Part displays a wide variety of vehicles on stands, arranged in rows, and separated by manufacturer.  Bring your own tools to remove the parts, drive train components or any other auto accessories you need to repair your car. Remember you pull - you save!
 
Why should I remove my own parts?
Rusty's Pic-A-Part believes that if you do all the work, you should benefit from all the savings!  Our parts are sold at a fraction of what a dealer would charge and well below the cost of a traditional full service auto recycler.
 
Can I expect to find high-quality parts?
Most of the parts are the original equipment (OEM) parts  installed when the car was built. We recycle hundreds of cars each month with only the select ones going to the yard, the rest are crushed and recycled. Rusty keeps the best and scraps the rest!
 
What happens if the part does not work or fit properly?
We offer a 31-day refund policy on most parts.  We will exchange your part or give you a store credit if the part does not work or fit properly.
 
Why do you take all fluids out of the cars?
For the safety of our customers and to protect the environment, we reuse, resell or recycle all fluids, CFC's, batteries and mercury switches.  Rusty's concern for safety is unparalleled in the industry and our dedication to preserving the environment is second to none.
 
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. There is a $2.00 entrance fee.
 
Do you buy unwanted autos? How much do you pay?
Rusty is always looking to buy your unwanted or damaged vehicle. The value of a car varies depending on current scrap pricing and/or on the model and condition of the car.
 
Will you remove my car or do I have to deliver it to you?
We can arrange towing for you; however, if you bring it to us we typically pay more for your unwanted auto.
