Used Auto Body Parts in VA... Getting the Best Parts for Your Money

Searching for local used auto body parts? Need a replacement door, fender, hood, bumper, grille, head lamp, glass, tail light, deck lid or other exterior body parts for your car, truck, van or SUV? can help. First we need give you a few tips and guidelines to help guide you through the parts search, ordering and installation processes. Once you browse through these tips use our Valet Shopper Service to search for the parts or call on the local used auto parts providers listed throughout our Website. Searching for and buying used auto body parts is a little less involved than ordering mechanical parts but there are still guidelines that can save you time and money.

Have Your Vehicle Information Available When Ordering…

When you call your local salvage yard to order your body parts, make sure that you have your vehicle information available including the VIN, year, make, model, exterior color code and the production date (usually listed in the door jam on the driver’s side). Having this information available when you speak live with a parts salesman will save you time and ensure that you get the correct part.

Ask Your Salesman for Replacement Parts that Match Your Vehicle if Available…

Hey, are you feeling luck? When ordering used auto body parts like doors, fenders, hoods and bumpers why not ask for parts with the same color as your vehicle? You will need to have your vehicles exterior paint code available when ordering and you just might get lucky. One important thing to remember is that auto salvage yards will NOT guarantee color matches on body parts even if the paint codes match. There are too many variables that could cause variations in color so they just cannot promise a perfect match.

Inspect the Parts at Pickup or Delivery…

Salvage yards take great care in dismantling, shipping or delivering their body parts. They usually inspect each and every part for imperfections before being sold, however occasionally a ding may get by their inspectors. Make sure that you visually inspect your replacement body parts for defects before you sign off on the invoice and finalize the transaction. Also make sure that you are getting the correct part by comparing it side by side to your original part.

Have Your Replacement Body Parts Professionally Installed…

OK…. We’re going to give you a little wiggle room here. If you are replacing a parking light, tail lamp or similar body parts that are simple, straight forward and essentially are fail proof, go for it! If you are replacing fenders, doors, hoods etc. that will require re-alignment, we suggest that you employ the help of a professional via your local body or collision shop. More than likely the body parts are going to need refinishing to obtain a proper color match anyway so why not let the collision repair shop handle the entire job. Improper alignment can cause major damage to panels when you open and close doors, hoods and deck lids so don’t tempt fate when installing used auto body parts.
