To Recycle Vehicles as Completely as Possible,
By Selling Low Cost Replacement Parts and
Applying Practical Material Recovery Techniques
Chesterfield Auto Parts was formed in the 1930’s on the rural outskirts of Richmond in what was Chesterfield County. In 1947 it was purchased by the family who, after three generations, continues to own and operate it to this day. In the mid 1970’s the City annexed portions of the surrounding counties and Chesterfield Auto Parts became part of the City of Richmond.
Chesterfield Auto Parts continued to operate as a full service auto parts store until the late 1980’s, when the owner decided to take the company in a new direction. We became one of the first self service salvage yards in the country. The idea quickly became popular. In 1991 we opened our second location (Fort Lee) in Prince George Virginia and in 2013 we opened our third location (Midlothian) in Chesterfield Virginia.
Chesterfield Auto Parts is proud to be active partners in the community. We help to support local charities like, The Good Samaritans Ministries and The Heritage for the Blind. We gladly assist organizations like The Richmond Fire Department, State Police and VA Department of Environmental Quality whenever possible. We also work closely with the DMV and State Legislators to make the right decisions for the Auto Recycling Industry in Virginia.
We are actively involved in the Auto Recycling Industry all over the world. We helped to form the Virginia Automotive Recyclers Association, which is still a valuable part of Virginia’s Recycling community. We are members of the national Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA), the Virginia Independent Automobile Dealers Association (VIADA) and the National Independent Auto Dealers Association (NIADA).
The current owner proudly continues the legacy that his family started before him, by serving the community and being an active part of the auto recycling industry in Virginia and all over the world. We plan to continue to use new and developing technologies to grow the business from the junk yard of yesterday, to the Automobile Recycling Solution for tomorrow.
