Welcome to our website!  This website was created with our customers in mind to give you the convenience of being able to check up to date prices and to find out a little more about us without having to even pick up the phone.  One of the things that sets us apart here at Garvin Scrap Metals is that we offer an outdoor digital read-out visible to the customer on our truck scale.  This is to ensure trust and honesty between us and our customers.  We buy every kind of scrap you might have, from aluminum cans, to whole cars and catalytic converters.  We also are available for 24-hour towing of vehicles of any size, from standard cars to tractor trailers.  In some cases we may even be able to come to you.  If you have a car you are unable to haul, we can pick it up.  If you have a large amount of scrap, such as a farm that may need to be cleaned out, we may be able to supply you with a roll-off box to take care of it.  Feel free to give us a call and we'll see how we can take care of your specific scrapping needs.

About Us


Garvin Auto Salvage was started in 2003 by John Garvin Sr. along with his wife Kathy and son John Jr.  Starting with a car crusher and little else.  They travelled yard to yard, dealing by appointment buying scrap, and towing, all while John Sr. still worked full-time as a truck driver.

A lot of things have changed since then, but the family values and work ethic that were present at the start, have not.  We have since expanded but are fortunate enough to still employ family and close friends.  We now offer our own truck scale capable of weighing loads in excess of 100,000 pounds, two scales for the buying of non-ferrous metals, a large warehouse to keep ourselves and our customers out of the weather, 24 hour towing service, and of course we offer an outdoor scale read-out so that you can see your own weight for yourself to guarantee you are getting a fair deal.
