In 1981 Owner Rick Carson started Brookline Auto Salvage. After the passing of his loyal dog, Rick respectfully renamed his facility Buddy’s.This modest start has grown into an operation of thousands of cars and trucks spanning nearly 40 acres. Buddys has grown yet again to be the areas first and largest self service auto parts facility employing 45 workers. The business plan is as simple as it was over 30 years ago, you bring your tools, pull the parts you need and SAVE lots of money! We offer a huge a selection of used OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts for cars, vans and light trucks – all makes and models, foreign and domestic – all at amazing prices that save you up to 80%!
We purchase used and salvage vehicles from tow companies, private parties, auto auctions, charities and insurance companies. We are constantly refreshing our inventory with new arrivals to provide our customers with the widest selection of vehicles and parts. As vehicles arrive, we inspect them, remove and recycle vehicle fluids and hazardous materials and then place the vehicles on the sales floor where customers can access them. All of our stores are environmentally friendly and well organized with our customers' safety and convenience as our top priorities. When you visit a Buddy’s Upull you're sure to be impressed by the layout of our vehicles placed in orderly rows and grouped by make and model.
Our vehicle disposal process recycles everything we possibly can. Parts are purchased by our customers as a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to purchasing from traditional parts sources. Parts that can be refurbished (i.e. radiators, alternators, compressors) are sold for remanufacturing. Many vehicle fluids including gasoline, oil and antifreeze are recycled. Ferrous and nonferrous metals are recycled and sold for reprocessing in new products. All of this reuse reduces the amount of new products that need to be manufactured, not to mention the raw materials and energy needed to create them.
Our environmental practices are second to none and exceed all federal guidelines. From our extensive experience, we have implemented standardized policies and procedures for managing vehicles and disposing of hazardous wastes.
All of these efforts taken together protect the environment, beautify our neighborhoods and reduce the cost of new goods by returning valuable raw materials into production.
Buddy's dedication to the environment and to our role as a community partner is what sets us apart from the traditional junkyard. Founded on the principle of responsibility and customer service, we have sought to exceed environmental standards and to be a leader in environmental responsibility. We have worked tirelessly to contribute to the community in a commitment to improve the neighborhoods we are part of.
Many communities are concerned with how to dispose of the high volume of vehicles that are taken out of service annually. Vehicles are commonly abandoned and left to decay on streets, residential yards, fields and even bodies of water. We believe that Buddy’s Upull offers local communities a solution to this problem with our industry-leading approaches to recycling vehicles in an environmentally friendly manner. We work with the community to acquire unwanted vehicles before (and often after) they are abandoned.
Vehicles are organized in the yard by make.
