St. Louis U-Pic-A-Part, which opened on October 15, 2013, brings a whole new concept of parts-buying to the St. Louis area. We are a self -service used auto parts yard, so you, the customer, actually pull the part. By doing so, you can purchase the desired part at a significant savings.

While this is not a new concept, it is new to the St. Louis market.

The Heckenast family, which built St. Louis U-Pic-A-Part, originated in the salvage business in Chicago in 1975. After running the successful business for many years, the family opted to sell to LKQ Corporation in 2005. They then relocated to Indianapolis and Phoenix to start up two new yards, which they subsequently sold to David Joseph Company in 2012.

As mentioned before, St. Louis U-Pic-A-Part is family owned and operated and our friendly sales staff is bilingual. St. Louis U-Pic-A-Part has over 3,000 used cars, trucks, and vans to choose from and we rotate our vehicles every day to ensure fresh inventory.

We have the largest inventory of used auto and truck parts in the St. Louis/METRO East St. Louis area.

Although we do not keep inventory of our vehicles, they are set out according to make. This allows for a easy walk to the section you are specifically looking


for. Don’t forget to check out our Oldies but Goodies section. Our entire paved lot allows for easy access as well.

All parts carry a 45 day FREE exchange warranty with the original receipt. No cash refunds.

In addition, we provide interchange for the year, make, and model of the vehicle that you own. Our entire inventory is placed on stands for the convenience of our customer, so all you have to do is bring your own tools and pull the parts you need. Not only does St. Louis U-Pic-A-Part sell used parts from cars, trucks, and vans, but we also buy junk vehicles and scrap and pay top dollar IN CASH 7 days a week. Be sure to bring your clunker by St. Louis U-Pic-A-Part and receive cash for your vehicle today. We do require a title with each vehicle!

With a vast and constantly changing inventory, as well as an average of several hundred customers daily-we choose not to keep an inventory of our vehicles or their parts. We cannot guarantee that a part or vehicle would still be here from the moment you call, till the moment you arrive. INSTEAD, we rotate our inventory every day, and  most times our customers are satisfied. We like to under promise and over deliver. STL UPAP’s core value is customer service. Providing outstanding inventory= reputable customer service.
