I used to go to junkyards all the time. A couple weeks back I went to a dismantlers, and I can see the clear difference.
At a junkyard I would go in and search for the owner and ask if he might have a such and such year Chebby C10 or whatever with a good thingamabob. He'd point me in a general direction and go back to his beer. I'd lug my tools out into the back lot and search for the vehicle. If I was able to find it I got to fight the snakes and wasps and lay on my back in a puddle of mud trying to get the part off. Then I'd take it back up front and dicker over price. As far as any warranty, it was 30-30...30 feet or 30 seconds from where I stood, whichever came first.
At the dismantlers, Eiss Brothers in Watertown NY, I walked into an air conditioned waiting room, asked for the part, counterman looked it up on computer and advised they did have one. I waited maybe 10 minutes in a nice comfy chair and the parts was brought out to me. I inspected it and the price was announced, half of a new item. While paying I asked about the warranty and was advised it was a 9 month warranty, no questions asked IIRC on that particular part, a throttle body for my sons Nissan Altima.
Junkyards used to be fun. I kinda prefer the dismantlers these days!
