our picking process

BYOT’s goal is to make your parts pulling experience fun, quick, and easy! And yes, we said FUN! Using our state of the art vehicle inventory & parts interchange software and a little help from BYOT’s professional staff, we’ll get you headed straight to the vehicle that potentially has the parts you are looking for.
We know your time is valuable and want to ensure that you are able to locate everything you need to repair or recondition your fine ride as quickly as possible! Since BYOT Auto Parts is a “Self-Service” facility, we do not inventory individual parts, just our vehicles. We add 10-20 new vehicles to our inventory daily, so our inventory is ALWAYS fresh! Stop by and see for yourself how BYOT is transforming the “Bring Your Own Tools and Pull Your Own Parts” experience!

  • Don’t spend your time digging through a jumbled scrap pile or spend your money on costly replacement parts. At BYOT Auto Parts, our unique process allows you to find the parts you need for less cost.
  • Since we leave our inventory as-is, you don’t have to pay a mechanic or auto parts specialist to remove parts from used vehicles. We’ll point you in the right direction, and you can use your own tools and expertise to locate the parts and remove them. This can cost up to 75% less than the typical value of these new or used parts.
  • We provide engine hoists, eight-passenger golf carts, wagons, and wheelbarrows to haul a part to your vehicle. These convenience items must stay on our property but are helpful if you need an engine or other bulky component. Bring a friend along to haul these heavy items for your own safety.
