Salvage yards see boost in business with fewer new cars available
Newer vehicles are harder to come by, so auto owners are looking to squeeze every last mile out of their used vehicles.
SAVAGE, Minn. — Chris Bracke has been in the car business all his life.
He’s the sales manager at Highway 101 Auto Salvage in Savage, and he’s never seen so much demand for parts.
“It’s been an unbelievable surge in demand,” Bracke says.
A demand that started more than a year ago when the pandemic first hit.
“Part of it was the stimulus money and part of it was people being off of work. They were looking for ways to make money and ways to stay busy,” Bracke says.
