Over the last 25 years, County Wexford based Motor Salvage Irl. has earned a stellar reputation as one of the island’s premier salvage solution providers as well as selling parts and damaged repairables and offering keen recovery and End of Life services. We paid a visit to their well-appointed Enniscorthy base to learn more about this outstanding operation.

Motor Salvage Irl. provides nationwide salvage services for all vehicles (cars, vans, HGVs, etc.) and machinery, including salvage recovery, storage and disposal. Each vehicle is collected promptly and professionally and stored in secure compounds nationwide. If necessary, drivers will pay all negotiated charges.

Motor Salvage Irl. is a licensed dealer and one of the leading contract salvage management companies operating in Ireland. As well as nationwide salvage and recovery (they are the main recovery agent for one of Ireland’s leading insurance companies), they also offer keen parts and motor sales services.

A huge selection of second-hand parts is stocked on-site, with recycled parts available at a discounted rate to the motor trade.

Their Authorised Treatment Facility, parts distribution centre and primary storage compound are all located at the company’s Drumgoold, Enniscorthy HQ.

Motor Salvage Irl.’s Authorised Treatment Facility is operated in accordance with The Waste Management Act 1996 & Waste Management (Amendment) 2001 and The Waste Management (Permit) Regulations 1998. All End of Life Vehicles are processed and disposed of in accordance with Waste Management (End-Of-Life) Regulations 2006 through a network of licensed facilities. Each vehicle is de-polluted, removing all hazardous materials, before being compacted and the shell sent for further processing and recycling. Certificates of Destruction are subsequently issued in line with existing legislation.

Motor Salvage Irl. was established 1990,  recognising a niche in the market for motor salvage. They soon secured the towing contract for An Garda Siochana in Wexford as well as work for various insurance companies. After many years of building the enterprise, it has now gained a secure position in the industry as one of Ireland’s largest motor salvage companies.

On the back of providing a reliable, courteous and conscientious service, Motor Salvage Irl. has obtained a high level of goodwill amongst the local community and businesses alike.

The strict guidelines governing the salvage sector are followed rigorously and Motor Salvage Irl. works in conjunction with Wexford County Council to ensure that a high level of awareness is consistently achieved. All vehicles are de-polluted within ten days of arrival at the compound and every vehicle which is deemed to be End of Life is disposed of in the most environmentally-friendly manner possible.
