U-Auto-Pull-It Supports Communities

At U-Auto-Pull-It, we believe in giving back to those communities we serve. We are proud to be a part of two community initiatives, recycling of cars and assisting local Fire Departments with Emergency Training.

Most people don’t know that we recycle --- everything! One hundred percent of the vehicle is recycled down to the last car part and all fluids.

We also provide vehicles for area Fire Departments to cut apart as they train on life saving skills such as using the “jaws of life” to remove passengers from a car wreck. Some of the cars are brought to the training facility for this use, and other times the teams come to one of our locations for training. If you see emergency equipment when you pull in, don’t worry. You have probably arrived during a training exercise and will have the opportunity to watch some of our area’s finest in action!

"In recognition of your outstanding support and service rendered to the Bossier City Fire Department by graciously delivering and picking up vehicles utilized by Fire Department personnel for extrication training at no cost to the City of Bossier City."

Samuel Halphen, Fire Chief

"On behalf of Fire Chief Grayson Boucher and Caddo Fire District Five, I wish to convey our sincere appreciation for providing three vehicles to be used in our training. It is through cooperation with businesses in the community such as U-Auto-Pull-It, that Fire District Five can continue to deliver state of the art emergency service to the citizens of the District."

David J. Bryant, Assistant Fire Chief

"This correspondence is to formally recognize and extend our appreciation to you and your company for allowing the Nash, Texas Fire Department to conduct an auto extrication class on your premises. In December of 2011 and the again on May 5, 2012, we were given the opportunity to utilize several salvaged vehicles at your facility which made it possible for the EMT and First Responders in this area to gain some extremely valuable hands-on training. Due to your generosity and assistance with this project, these emergency responders will be better prepared to safely and expeditiously provide rescue services and patient care when the need arises. Once again, we would like to sincerely share our gratitude with you and your company and we look forward to continuing this partnership in the future."

James Smith RN, LP Clinical Coordinator EMT Program

"ATF, like any law enforcement agency, conducts frequent training exercises with field enforcement personnel in order to maintain skill and proficiency levels in many areas necessary to fulfill our daily operational requirements. The net result of this training is heightened levels of safety for our personnel and for the public in general. The most valuable training occurs when we can incorporate "real world" situations and conditions into our training curriculum.

For our 4th quarter training cycle, the New Orleans Field Division training coordinators established a curriculum that included shooting from and around vehicles using both live ammunition and training ammunition. Since the risk of damage to fleet vehicle was too great, they requested a "junk" car be provided for this training. The Local office training agents were advised to contact U-Auto-Pull-It regarding this need, as U-Auto-Pull-It had a reputation of helping other law enforcement and fire departments with similar needs.

Mr Paul Preibus, Manager North Shreveport location, was contacted and readily agreed to help us with our request. Mr. Preibus was very friendly and accommodating, locating a suitable vehicle and providing delivery and removal from the training site with no problems at all. U-Auto-Pull-It provided this courtesy to us at no charge and in a courteous, professional manner.

As the Resident Agent in Charge of the Shreveport Field Office, I would like to thank U-Auto-Pull-It for their support in our mission and in the overall support of public safety in our community."

L. Wade Rasberry, Resident Agent in Charge
