The Best Day, Time and Place: Never have garage sales over holiday weekends or on weekdays. Saturdays are the preferred day and the earlier you start, the better. Expect savvy buyers to arrive extremely early and offer less for large items hoping to get a bargain. Make sure the area of your sale is clean and that your items are well organized. If it is a yard sale, mow that grass the day before and pick up that animal poop. Have a rain date available in case of a downpour. Winter or rainy season sales are never a good idea. Summer is sale season.
Frankly, when I got back to Utah, I set it on a shelf for a couple of weeks before doing anything with it. I thought it probably had some metals, mostly silver, and wasn't worth much, so no hurry! I finally took it to my refiner and asked him to melt it and get an assay. Final score: dirt - 40%; metals - 60%. The metals were silver and gold. The gold ran almost 18K (75% pure gold) and the jar yielded almost a pound of pure gold!
So where can you find salvage WWII vehicles? I doubt you will be able to go to your local junk yard and find a old WWII vehicle. These trucks and cars are most certainly long gone. The lqk junk yard are able to get too much of a payoff from these metals to have them just sit around. No, I bet the best place to find these vehicles are in private yards.
I received a tip from the building plan I was using, to source for used golf cart or forklift batteries. So I went to a nearby industrial estate and although I did not manage to get a battery for free, I made a deal with one factory owner who agreed to sell one of his batteries (a 32 amp hour 12 volt AGM battery) for cheaper than I could get from the store.
Another important factor is age, which means the older the car is, the less is its value. Since lkq auto parts would be in better condition if the car is less than 10-15 years old, the salvage yard tends to pay more for these cars. However, there are some models that tend to have reliable parts even when the car is older. Your car does not need to have an excellent appearance for a salvage yard that offers cash for cars. What they look for is usable and salable parts. So if your body panel, engine or cabin components are still usable and fully functional, you might get a good price for your old and wrecked vehicle.
A.M. My favorite author is John C. Maxwell because when I was in the scrap yard learning to read, the first book that I read in its entirety was The Success Journey by John C. Maxwell. His book continues to inspire me to this day. Not to mention, John is a dear friend of mine. He is also one of the pastors at my church. I have the pleasure of speaking with him each Sunday he comes to minister.
You will first have to identify if the website that holds parts to the car you are looking for. Once you identify a website, just type in the name of the parts you need. It will throw up a list of suppliers who can help you. Or give you a list of availability of the part. Do your research, ask for multiple quotes and make your choice. You do not have to worry about the credibility of these websites as they are in the business for a long term, so they will not provide you with a product that will reflect badly on them. Once you have made your choice on the supplier crack the deal and wait for your import auto salvage part to reach your home in record time.
