About Us


Our History and Our Future

We are proud to have served our many customers in the Automobile Industry and the general public for half a century! Oneil “Teeny” and Reba Young began the Young’s Auto Center and Salvage story in 1963 out of their Gulf Service Station. (Located, remodeled and still being used at the current Young’s Benson, NC location) Through dedication, persistence and the addition of their son Ricky to the business, The Young’s began their rise to the top of the automobile recycling industry. Today, Ricky leads what has become the largest independent auto salvage dealer in the Carolinas. Young’s has expanded to five used parts sales locations, U-pull-it Yards, a mobile auto crushing fleet as well as a global export sales division. And though we are considered to be one of the largest auto salvage and crushing operations in the United States, we are most proud of our reputation for, and dedication to, “Customer Satisfaction”. Teeny and Reba established that loyalty back in 1963 and Ricky continues that commitment every day. Whether buying the smallest used part on a junk vehicle or buying a shipping container full of premium used auto parts to export overseas, whether contracting us to crush out thousands of scrap and salvage vehicles or selling a single Junk car across our scales, we value each and every customer!

Our Crushing Division is approaching 1 Million vehicles crushed and continues to expand. We are committed to investing in the latest auto salvage technology and recycling equipment to assure that we optimize every opportunity to deliver the highest quality products and services, more quickly and at no cost to our environment. Our standard and extended length parts warranties are among the best in the Auto Salvage Industry and all of our automotive products and services are backed by “hands-on” management and Ownership. Ricky, as the owner of Young’s, maintains a very active role in not only Young’s day to day operation, but he is also a leading advocate for improving the recycling industry as a whole. Young’s realizes that without satisfied customers, we have no business! We invite you to call or visit one of our locations today and experience why Young’s is considered one of the Premier auto recyclers in the nation.

About the Corvette:

The Corvette used in much of Young’s marketing and branding was purchased by Ricky Young in 2009 at the Barrett Jackson Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach Florida. It is a custom hand built 1997 Chevrolet Corvette and is a 24 Hour of Lemans Show Pace Car. The Vette was part of General Motors Heritage Collection and was sold at auction as part of the GM bankruptcy settlement.
