“I have a 20 month old baby and I do not have concerns at all with being next to Pull-A-Part. They have a really big privacy fence. I don’t even see Pull-A-Part when I go on my walks with her. I think there are some trees between us and the fence which makes it eve more private.” - Risa Kennedy, neighbor, Atlanta, Ga.   Download

“it’s different and very pleasing. I have had the opportunity to visit several junkyards – as we used to call them – and they were all in disarray and the land was polluted with oil, and transmission fluid.

“I think it is great utilization because what it is doing is taking these junk cars off the streets; it’s recycling them; it’s making parts available at very inexpensive prices to the people that pull these things apart; and it’s also bringing in additional revenue to the local governments which I know all of them need today – as I certainly needed it when I was CEO of the county.”
- Liane Levetan, Former CEO of Dekalb County, Ga.
