About Reid’s Automotive
Reid’s Automotive Recycling
offers an earth-friendly and economical solution for vehicle repairs and end of life vehicle processing. Reid’s uses upcycled ‘Original Manufacture Parts (OEM’s)’ to ensure that their customers are receiving original parts and replacements which are safely tested and guaranteed to fit the specific model of car. Reid’s understands the importance of keeping the car original, keeping occupants’ safe, and retaining the value of the vehicle at a fraction of the cost, and with low impact to the environment.
Reid’s is a Gold certified Vehicle Processing Center accepting 2006 to 2019 Chrysler, Dodge Jeep automobiles and Ram trucks to recycle vehicles that customers no longer use, and over 98% of their vehicles have been purchased at auction from the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. Reid’s Auto is also a certified Allor Wheel Repair Facility, allowing them to fix all models of aluminum wheels as to new conditions.
Minimizing waste from automobiles reaching the end of their life, and minimizing the waste from the distribution of recovered OEM auto parts.
Going Climate Smart
Owners Stuart and Teresa Reid take great pride in their contribution to a low-carbon economy by extending the life of auto parts and helping to keep late model vehicle components out of landfills. This pride is what propelled Reid’s Auto to participate in Climate Smart, and their work continues to set a high standard of sustainability and climate action in the Canadian Automotive industry. Through Climate Smart, Reid’s Auto identified areas of opportunity to save on carbon, and costs.

- Recover and re-use auto parts and recycling waste material, helping to prevent automotive parts from ending up in the landfill
- Package free shipping and delivery to lower mainland automotive repair shops without the need for shipping parts in cardboard boxes
- Optimize routes with combined shipments to save on fuel consumption.
