Vehicle Salvage, Breaking and Spares Services

Based in Cornwall, W.H. Orchard and Son is a family run business with well over 50 years experience in the scrap metal trade. We offer a professional service for vehicle salvage and ELV processing. Our salvage service enables us to carry a wide selection of used and secondhand car parts for an enormous range of vehicles. If you need spares, we can often supply what you need - always at very competitive prices. We also have a Public 50 Tonne Weighbridge.

Aluminium Recycling

In March 2013, we invested more than 500,000 in two ground breaking smelting furnaces, constructed to the latest environmental standards on our site at Burnt House Garage, to turn scrap car parts into aluminium ingots for sale to manufacturers across the UK and Europe for reuse in engines, body panels and wheels.
