About Us - Whip Street Motors

Scrap metal ipswich

Whip Street Motors was founded by Geoff Baker in 1960. In 1962 the business moved to its current location in Great Whip Street, Ipswich.

Expansion in the 60’s lead to a second site being established in Paper Mill Lane, Bramford on the outskirts of Ipswich.
