DCC Metal Recycling offers used car and truck parts at 3 different South Carolina locations; Conway, Ladson, and Sellers. The company maintains an inventory of approximately 2000 cars. That inventory is turned over about every 3 months. Customers may visit or call a location to inquire about a particular part. If the part is not available from a car at one of our locations, a customer service representative will work with the customer to find the desired part. Most parts can be received within 48 hours of ordering. Parts can range from engines and transmissions to axles, fenders, starters, alternators, door handles, grills, etc. Each location also has an inventory of batteries and tires for sale.

Parts are one of the two major components of an auto repair bill, the other being labor. Therefore, if you can find parts for less than your mechanic or auto parts store charges, you will be able to significantly reduce the cost of fixing your vehicle. Whether you plan on doing the job yourself or taking your vehicle to a mechanic, hunting around a nearby salvage yard for cheap used car parts might save you a lot of money.

Simply put, salvage yards are able to offer the lowest prices on used car parts to consumers in South Carolina. Because their business model is different than a repair shop or auto parts store, they can substantially undercut the prices you will find at either of those places.
Virtually every mechanic marks up the price of parts they order, because you do not have an alternative place to purchase necessary parts from. When your car is in their garage, you will have to order parts through them. The ones that will install parts bought elsewhere typically charge higher labor rates for the repair, so you end up paying just as much in the end.
Also, price savings can be huge due to how pricing is structured at most salvage yards. They typically have their generic part prices listed on their site and will charge the same amount for a part no matter the make. So if you have an expensive make/model this might be your best bet.
For the do-it-yourself type, auto parts stores generally have better prices than repair shops. Auto parts stores generally only sell new and refurbished parts, though, which cost more than used parts. Also, these stores’ overhead is much higher than a salvage yard. A salvage yard does not need to pay for the advertising that national auto parts stores put out, a large building with all the associated utilities or the wholesale cost of new and refurbished parts.
Instead, at a salvage yard you will find a small, but knowledgeable, staff, a small building, where the staff takes shelter during inclement weather, and lots of cars to pull parts from. Because there are so few operating expenses, salvage yards have the cheapest used car parts available.
