LKQ is a chain of you pick you pull junk yards, all the one I have been to are super clean and not sketchy. They put vehicle up on blocks and have good prices.

LKQ used to be called "pick N pull" for those in ohio / midwest.. same type of setup, they have gravel in most of their yards.. and have engine hoists with big wheels to help you tank engines.. they placed every car up on 4 sets of 2 rims welded together so they are stable.. they also always had a guy with a lift driving around who would lift the front end up farther if you dropped a tranny and needed to get it out from under the car.. or to help you pull out a rear..

LKQ seems to carry that level of service on.. at least the columbus ohio location does..

They keep (fairly) accurate inventory on their site.

ive had pretty decent luck with vehicles being listed on the site.. or with the fact they are organized pretty well i nthe yard.. so I can look through a single section and leave if I dont see what im looking for..

occasionally you see a school bus or 2 in one.. thoiugh in ohio.. one of several used bus parts yards buys alot of the salvage busses and IHC straight trucks.. esp if the engines are any good.
