QUALITY CONTROL

Before the part you need makes it to your door, you can be assured that it has gone through four levels of quality control.

 

1 Pre-purchase inspection
We purchase our donor vehicles in-person at insurance auctions. Prior to purchasing, our buyers complete a thorough visual inspection, examining the vehicle’s mileage, the running condition of the engine and the overall condition of the vehicle’s body and interior parts.

 

2 Inventory
Once a donor vehicle reaches our facility, one of our specially-trained inventory professionals combs through every nook and cranny of the vehicle, examining and taking note of the specific condition of each drivetrain, body, suspension and interior part.

 

3 Dismantling
Before parts are removed from donor vehicles, our team of dismantling technicians are trained to re-inspect each part for fluids leaks, engine compression, accident damage and missing hardware.

 

4 Pre-delivery inspection & sign-off
Whether shipped by way of UPS or delivered personally by one of our delivery drivers, no part leaves our facility without a pre-delivery inspection and sign-off from one of our auto parts specialists.
