The Bestman Salvage are the main antagonistic faction of the 2017 Marvel film Spider-Man: Homecoming.
It started off as a salvage company led by Vulture, but after he and his crew became unemployed, it turned over to selling alien weaponry on the black market for profit.
Bestman Salvage was founded by Toomes to hold contracts to clean up any incidents in New York City. The company acquired a big contract to clean up the city after the Chitauri invasion, for that Toomes invested in a large amount of crew and equipment. However Tony Stark founded a new salvage company called Damage Control that took over the operations, leaving Toomes and his crew unemployed. Upon learning that he still has possession of the Chitauri weaponry, and enraged that the people that wrecked the city are now being paid to clean it, Toomes decides to keep it, turning himself and the crew over to a life of crime by selling the technology. Bestman Salvage was repurposed into a black market weapons dealing operation since.
After eight years of running their operation nonstop, Bestman Salvage was on top of their game, as Toomes and his crew generated enough money to support themselves and their families, except for Jackson Brice, who only takes pride in firing out the weapons in the open for his own amusement after a failed deal with Aaron Davis (thanks to Spiderman).
After killing Brice for his recklessness, Toomes focused on his next operations on hijacking a Damage Control truck full of confiscated technology and selling the weaponry to Mac Gargan, though Spiderman foiled both of these operations, much to the ire of Toomes and his gang.
Eventually, Toomes and the Bestman Salvage gang plotted on their latest attempt to hijack the Stark Cargo Plane to steal more weapons from Damage Control, only for Spiderman to foil the operation once again. After a heated battle between Toomes and Spiderman in Coney Island, Toomes is defeated, but is saved by Spiderman from an incoming explosion, leaving him and Schultz to be arrested by the police. As such, Bestman Salvage is shut down and declared defunct.
