LKQ stands for Like Kind and Quality. As a company, its original mission was to supply parts to auto body shops. In cases in which an insurance company decides to replace damaged panels with used parts (rather than new parts), they are replaced with parts in a similar condition to the rest of the car—like in kind and quality. Over the last decade, the company has branched out from its business-to-business model and now sells direct to retail customers online and at several walk-in stores throughout the country. The company owns a broad network of junkyards across the country and has access to late-model cars totaled out by insurance companies, which often have perfectly operating drivetrains ripe for the picking.
