Cunningham Brothers

Our History

Cunningham Brothers Auto Parts has been serving their customers with quality recycled automotive parts since 1981. With the help of their mother, the three Cunningham brothers opened their first location in Rustburg, Va. The company grew quickly, and they purchased their second full service location, Old Dominion Auto Salvage in Roanoke in 1986. Wanting a larger foot print in Virginia, they purchased their third full-service location, Action Auto Parts, in 1994. Innovative Automotive Solutions was established in 1999 to help handle the retail sales of the repairable vehicles.

  • In 2008 Innovative Automotive Solutions, our automotive sales company, was launched next door to the corporate offices in Rustburg, VA offering quality used cars & rebuildables.
  • In 2009 Pick N Save a self-serve yard opened that adjoins their full-service location in Rustburg, VA.
  • In 2011 our core collection program was fully established and has grown into the nationwide Maxcore Company.
  • In 2012 we consolidated the full-service production down to one location in Rustburg, VA.
  • In 2013 Old Dominion Auto Salvage in Roanoke, VA built a new office for their retail full-service business and opened a new self-serve yard, Pick N Save.
  • In 2016 Northern Virginia Recycling in Lorton, VA was opened as a self-service facility. 
  • In 2021 CBAP Charlotte’s full-service location was launched in Monroe, NC to expand their footprint and help better serve their customers.
