Most corrupt business I've ever been in. – I needed a radio for a 97 Honda. I called Sanford Auto Salvage and they said they had one. When I arrived the next day they said they didn't have one. Finally a guy in the back yelled out and told the other guy what to look for. When they pulled it out it the back of the radio was covered in rust. Even down into the vents where the electronics are. They wanted $75 + tax = $80.25 no cash refunds (exchange for other merchandise only), no guarantees on electronics, mechanical parts only!! (A newly refurbished radio is $125.) Another patron said, install it and try it before you pay. Good idea I thought. I mentioned about the rust to the guy behind the counter. He said, it was normal and that my radio would have it too. (I'm thinking no way.) So we left their radio on the counter and went out to the parking lot and pulled our radio out of our car. It was spotless. When I went back in, my wife was arguing with them when I got there. They had accused us of taking their radio and walking out of their shop with it! (Trust me. If anyone is going to be ripped off it WON'T be them!) Finally, after some heated exchanges, they walked into their back room and brought the radio back out!! When I plopped my clean radio on the counter suddenly their radio was no longer for sale! (my radio has a volume knob that works intermittently). My wife let them know how messed up they are and they laughed at us as we left. One of them said, "Go get your lawyer!" I'm sure they're well acquainted with lawyers. I've worked with dune buggies and VW's since I was 15. I've been to a lot of salvage yards. These guys give junk yards a bad name. If you can find the part you need anywhere else drive the extra miles! This is by far the shadiest, most unscrupulous place I've ever been in.
