Looking for a salvage yard for your Volvo needs?
Most of us here on MVS love to save a few bucks by repairing and servicing our own cars, but finding the parts we need can often be a pain. Volvo owners and enthusiasts the world over are often in search both common and rare parts for their vehicles. Even if you find what you’re looking for, it’s oftentimes very expensive!
Salvage yards, junkyards, and dismantlers can be a great option for sourcing cheap, used parts.
Of course, finding a quality salvage yard or junkyard with Volvo parts can be pretty difficult, but finding one in your area is a completely different story. EBay is always an option, but prices can be much, much higher than you would pay in a junkyard. Pick n’ pull salvage shops, like U Pull & Pay, can offer some of the best deals around, as they’ve got constantly rotating inventory and cheap prices. You just can’t mind getting your hands dirty!
If you’re not sure if you’ve got any salvage yards in your area, just dive into Google. You can typically find a few nearby that have at least a couple Volvos. Of course, even if your car is there, that’s not a promise that your part will be there. It’s always better to find a salvage yard with several of the vehicles you’re looking for, so you have more chances to find exactly what you need.
