You would have to contact the salvage yard and find out as there is no standard for quality assurance in the salvage business.

Getting the Most out of Salvage Trucks?

Salvage trucks can be the best sources of parts and accessories for restoring an older model of truck. Salvage trucks are also great resources when you need to just keep an older truck running as a daily driver. Cosmetic Salvage Parts One of the most valuable uses for salvage trucks is as a way to find original equipment to replace something that has worn out on your old truck. Most salvage trucks are in salvage yards because they were involved in an accident that left them unable to operate normally any longer. These trucks still have all of the interior accessories that the make and model was shipped with. The interior of a salvage truck is generally undamaged because most of the damage happens to the front or rear end during an accident. You can find original interior equipment through salvage for far less than you would spend from a retailer. Engine Details Salvage trucks are not the best places to find rubber engine parts like belts or hoses. They are excellent sources of larger parts that may need to be replaced if you have driven your truck for more than 100,000 miles, however. Most salvage trucks have engine blocks that are in perfect condition. A rebuilt engine that begins with a salvaged engine block can cost as little as half as much as an engine rebuilt from retail stock. Since the truck has probably spent years sitting in the salvage yard, the engine block has driven fewer miles than your truck that has been driven regularly for the past several years. Be Prepared to Pull the Parts Yourself If you plan to use salvage trucks to find the parts you need, you should visit the salvage yard with all of the tools you would need to take the parts off of your truck on your own. Part of the reason salvaged parts and accessories are so inexpensive is because the customer does most of the work of retrieving the parts from the salvage vehicle. Wear clothes that you won’t mind getting dirty. It may be a good idea to bring a friend with you if the part you need is heavy.
