I'm in the New York City/northern New Jersey area. We don't really have any of those junkyards where you walk in w/ your tools and take parts off yourself. I'm interested mostly in Chevy/GM cars/parts. I'd also consider places in PA and DE.

Also, how does it work if I need just a rim? Can I take the scissor jack from a car; jack it up then take the wheel off? Will they separate the tire off for me? Is it really cheaper than salvage yards that already have the parts off, on the shelves? Already checked ebay, Craigslist, Facebook marketplace.

Thanks in advance!

All the yards I've gone to remove the wheels, but that's a good question to ask when you call before going to a yard.
I ended up taking the 200 mile one way drive to Gary's U Pull It in Binghampton. Didn't get all the parts I needed. But it was a nice experience. Staff was helpful and friendly to this first time visitor. Gary's puts the cars on "jack stands" made out of steel rims. they don't remove the wheels from the car. So some cars still had wheels on; mostly steel rims. The only time a car won't have the wheels; somebody needed the rims/tires, or somebody took the wheels off to get other parts(caliper, rotors, etc).

EVolve NY chargers was offering free charging for the holiday weekend. So didn't spend a dime in "fuel" for the 400 mile round trip in our Bolt.
