We might be a little biased, but Atlantic Salvage only has great things to say about automotive recycling in Massachusetts. There are so many reasons we love it, and not only because it’s our jobs. If you’re contemplating between new or used parts, we have a few reasons you might consider visiting our yard before making a decision.

Buying used instead of new often saves you quite a bit of money and let’s face it, when it comes to unforeseen car care, we usually need all the help we can get. This is especially important when you’re in need of quite a few replacement parts and need to spend each dollar wisely.


On top of contacting your dealer, figuring out which part you need, contacting stores, talking to the manufacturer, and waiting for the part to arrive, you have spent a significant amount of time on the phone, waiting. Salvage yards help you find your parts in their inventory quickly, and sometimes even help you locate them online.

Environmental benefits

Creating a new vehicle part might seem simple, but it quickly impacts the environment. Manufacturers use fuel and other resources in order to create your new part, when there are perfectly great and useable parts that have already been made!

Supporting local businesses

Though this has less to do with the actual part, supporting local businesses is important to the economy. Instead of going to the big, name-brand, national manufacturers, you can often find many of the same products at a community salvage yard. Don’t believe us? Just give a call and ask about their inventory.

Whether you’re in need of a mirror or even a used transmission in Massachusetts, Atlantic Salvage has you covered. We will work with you to ensure you have a perfect fit for your make and model and keep a few extra dollars in your pocket. With more questions, call us today at (800) 225-0812.
