About Us

Established in 1987, Headford Road Car Dismantlers is one of the leading vehicle dismantlers and recycled parts suppliers in the West of Ireland. The company operates from a purpose built 6 acre site on the Headford Road just minutes from Galway City and is a fully licensed end of life vehicle treatment facility.

Vehicles for dismantling are sourced from all over Ireland, with many purchased from leading insurance companies. These include all makes and models of cars, vans and 4x4s. We purchase all types of end of life vehicle, uneconomical repairs, NCT failures and damaged repairables. Vehicle collection can be arranged nationwide using our own recovery vehicles. We will generally have on site up to 1500 vehicles, with new stock arriving on a daily basis.

Once on site, fluids are removed from vehicles in an advanced depollution bay. They are then expertly dismantled with parts suitable for recycling removed. The reminder of the vehicle is then crushed and bailed, using an on-site bailer to create metal bales suitable for recycling. As a fully Authorised Treatment Facility, the whole process conforms to the most stringent EU and Irish dismantling regulations. The company is also a member of ELVES, the End-of-Life Vehicle compliance scheme and a member of Repak. We are also fully compliant with tyre recycling standards.

Adherence to the highest environmental standard means that customers can be completely confident that their end of life vehicle is being dealt with in the most responsible manor, something that is reflected in the issuing of an End of Life Vehicle Certificate.

Parts removed from vehicles are cleaned, checked and catalogued for resale. The volume and variety of vehicles being recycled allows us to hold in stock a huge range of parts and to offer very competitive pricing. Our expert team are on hand to help customers identify the parts that they need, or you can use the search facility on our website, or make an online enquiry and we will contact you by phone or email.

We accept all major credit and debit cards and can deliver nationwide. As well as recycled parts we also offer a wide selection of well priced new parts to facilitate all types of repair.

In addition to vehicle dismantling and parts supply, our expert team can also give friendly advice on your motoring needs. We offer a free collection of end of life vehicles in the Galway City area. We also offer a collection service and storage facility for insurance companies.

Headford Road Car Dismantlers is a supporter of local community groups and is a sponsor of the Oranmore Maree GAA Club.
