Whether he or she is called an auto dismantler, reclaimer, recycler, wrecker, salvage or many other terms, the California auto dismantler is a “professional.” He is not a “junkman”!
Today’s dismantler is a small business man or woman who, licensed and regulated by the State of California,maintains a huge inventory of completely undamaged, cleaned, tested,recycled vehicle parts.
Recycled parts, available to the public at enormous savings over new or foreign imports! Any part, for any car, anywhere! Savings, plus a full guarantee from the dismantler.
Nationally, the dismantling and sale of recycled vehicle parts ranks as the 16th largest industry and growing. Most dismantler businesses are interconnected through computers and modern communications methods, locally, statewide, and across the nation.
In California, there are over 1500 licensed dismantler facilities, organized in ten chapters from Oregon state line to the Mexican border. The industry is represented nationally by the Automotive & Recyclers Association (ARA), headquartered in Washington, D.C.
The Valley Auto Dismantler’s Association (VADA), with its members, is one of the California’s largest chapters. It represents those dismantling and recycling businesses in the Antelope Valley, Glendale, San Fernando, Ventura, Santa Barbara and Santa Clarita Counties.
VADA, now celebrating its 37th Anniversary, is also one of the most active chapters, stressing the highest “professional”standards for all its regular and associate members, and a total commitment to the support of the industry, associations, fellow chapters and the community in the which the member lives and does business.
