The Reitman Difference: Cleanliness matters in the auto parts industry

Reitman Auto Parts & Sales is not your average automotive recycling business. Our family-owned company has been in operation for nearly a century—and every year, we refine what it means to offer quality parts and quality service to every customer we meet. Since 1927, we have been diligent in changing the way our community thinks about auto parts sales. In the past, an image of auto recycling came with visions of oil and grime. At Reitman, cleanliness is key. From clean uniforms and a well-maintained facility to dirt-free auto parts and sustainable business practices, we are innovating the auto recycling experience.

Reitman is a one-stop shop for everything automobile. From selling auto parts from used, wrecked, or late-model autos to buying damaged cars and trucks, Reitman aims to meet every client’s needs with order, affordability, and timeliness. In an industry known for grime and oil, cleanliness and kindness are the name of the game.

Reitman’s organized website will help you find exactly the part you need. We’ve invested time and resources into creating a system that can sustain a category of millions of high-quality auto parts. Users can search for a specific auto body part via a multi-part, inventory, or image search across our inventory of 126 million car and truck parts. Each part is assessed upon purchase, cleaned, tagged, organized, and placed in a specific location in our 20-acre Northern Kentucky lot. Our team knows exactly where every piece is located, which ensures quick and accurate service.

When you come to Reitman Auto Parts & Sales, you’ll find a team of experts to help answer your questions and offer advice as well as help you find the auto part you need. We believe that great service involves keeping an organized and clean facility, but it also means we operate with integrity and honesty. We are proud of our work, and we offer fair value on each of our parts sold. In fact, most parts that we sell come with a 90-day warranty, and extended warranties are available. Our warranty represents our commitment to offering high-quality products and respecting our customers and their money.

Reitman’s commitment to cleanliness doesn’t stop at the store. Clean business practices that work to protect the environment are at the core of Reitman Auto Parts & Sales and our dedication to our community. Recycling, reusing, and safe disposal of unusable parts are all underlying factors that will keep serving clients for generations to come. Our customers receive only high-quality products that are guaranteed to be as clean as our shop. Our team of highly experienced staff inspects each product to ensure its cleanliness and workability before we put it in your hands.

Reitman Auto Parts & Sales is located in the Northern Kentucky community of Melbourne. We have more than 2000 cars and trucks on site, and we offer high value for used, wrecked, or rebuildable late-model foreign and domestic cars, trucks, and vans from model year 2005 and up. For more information, or to find an automotive part, visit us online or call 800-221-3993.

Earth Day 2018: Proud to do our part!

Once a year, millions of people across the country and around the world come together to celebrate Earth Day. This year’s celebration falls on Sunday, April 22, and there are events planned from coast to coast. At Reitman Auto Parts & Sales, we are proud to join other businesses, especially other companies in the automotive and recycling industries, that help to spread awareness and best practices regarding recycling and protecting the environment on Earth Day--and every day throughout the year.

As an auto recycling company, Reitman Auto Parts & Sales knows that we have an opportunity to positively impact our local Northern Kentucky community. In fact, we’ve made it our company’s core vision, and we aim to live up to our vision daily.

At Reitman Auto Parts & Sales, Inc., we strive to recycle vehicles in an environmentally-safe way, while meeting customers’ needs affordably and in a timely manner. In order to keep as much of the vehicle out of the landfill as possible, we recycle and reuse as much as possible, including even the smallest of parts, and dispose of the refuse in a smart, safe, environmentally-friendly way. Our goal is to protect our natural resources for a greener tomorrow.

By definition, Reitman Auto Parts & Sales is a recycling company. Performing our work day in and day out in an environmentally friendly way is part of the core of our business. Here are a few reasons from the Automotive Recyclers Association that help highlight why we take our work for the environment seriously:

  • The automobile is one of the most recycled consumer products in the world!
  • In 2016, automotive recyclers process roughly 12 million vehicles retired from U.S. roads (that’s 23 vehicles every minute)
  • Around 86% of each vehicle is recycled by weight
  • Each year, automotive recyclers process millions of tons of steel
  • Automotive recyclers have prevented 6.7 million hazardous mercury switches from reaching landfills

Reitman Auto is also a proud provider of Green Recycled Parts®. Authentic Green Recycled Parts are good for the environment, good for your vehicle, and good for your wallet. We follow the ARA’s guides to carefully select and inspect green recycled auto parts, and many parts are backed by a special warranty. Be sure to ask us about our selection of Green Recycled Parts!
