If you’re not sure what to look for in a local wrecker, here are a few features to keep an eye out for:

  • A great range of parts to suit your vehicle. Variety is critical for a great wreckers. While some wrecking yards specialise in a particular make of car, others can offer parts for all vehicles. It’s a good idea to do your research and find a yard that meets your needs.
  • Knowledgeable staff. Cars are complex beasts, and chances are, you’ll need the assistance of a knowledgeable staff member.

My son is an excellent car wrecker, having gone through three in his short driving career. 😉

Ezy scrap Mitchell. Help yourself to what is in the yard.

My experience is that, even in Qbn, they’re all “dismantlers” (as opposed to old-school wrecking yards) … tell them what you want and they’ve either got it on the shelf already, or they got out and retrieve it for you.
