I'm wondering if there are any junkyards/used parts sources in NC that you guys have had experience with, specifically related to our trucks. I'd prefer something between Charlotte and Greensboro with dentsides but any experiences you have that are fairly recent could be of use to someone else. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Sorry. No help here either. Seems like LKQ owns every dang salvage yard around here now.
Plus, is it just me or has the junkyard experience changed over the past few years. Used to be you would show up with your tool box and point to the vehicle you wanted to wrench on and they'd let you have at it. Then for awhile, if I remember correctly you couldn't even pull your own part (Ha, pull your own part ) Then for awhile you couldn't even get on the site without signing ten sheets of paperwork. I haven't been in a while so I don't know what it's like currently. I only know that all the old, local yards are gone and all the old, big yards are rebranded LKQ.
Clayton. Sorry. There's a huge LKQ lot in Clayton right on 70. Used to be a pretty decent outfit. Haven't been there in ages but it's still has tons of vehicles and looks to be staying in business through all these years.
