The B&R Auto Wrecking Story

We are B&R Auto Wrecking, the nation’s largest independent auto recycler. Family owned and operated since 1980, we proudly serve our customers from 17 locations with local and nationwide delivery. We provide parts to collision, repair, and vehicle sales centers along with everyday do-it-yourselfers who like to save time and money.

It all Started in 1980...

Founder, Rick Perlenfein bought the 10 acre B&R Auto Wrecking in 1980 in Corvallis Oregon. Now, over 40 years later we span four states with multiple locations across Oregon, Washington, Nevada and California, as well as a large presence on eBay and autowrecking.com.

Over the years we have continued to perfect our processes in auto recycling and are continuously introducing the latest in technology to best serve our customers while also helping to keep our planet green.

Family Owned & Operated

Being a family owned and operated company gives our employees a sense of unity in being a part of a family and that they are not just a number. The family feeling results in always striving to do our best and to take pride in what we do because we care. When you have this feeling of belonging and caring, it projects to our customers. We care when your vehicle needs repaired and understand how it can impact your daily life. We want to do everything we can to get a great quality part to you at a fair price in a timely manner.

Best-In-Industry Practices

We are an industry leader in saving natural resources by efficiently removing and re-utilizating recyclable auto parts. In addition to conserving natural resources, our company plays an important role in reducing air and water pollution by recycling or properly disposing of vehicular fluids, including gasoline, diesel fuel, oil, transmission fluid, power steering and brake fluids, gear oil and mineral spirits. We are continuously looking at ways to better the environmental impact in our industry by researching and using the newest technology.
