With metal prices increasing, people are able to make some money from their old cars - as long as they follow the correct procedure and go through an authorised treatment facility (ATF) or scrapyard with licences from the Environment Agency. Remembering that any scrapped vehicle must also be reported to the DVLA



What Paperwork Will I Need To Scrap My Car?

It’s vital to have the right paperwork before you scrap your car. With so many cars being scrapped, it’s important to make sure you can produce the correct documents for scrapping your car. Make sure you keep the V5C logbook and ensure that when scrapping a car, you get a receipt from ATF (Approved Treatment Facility). Once this is done, then within 7 days you should receive a certificate of destruction which will state that your vehicle has been recycled properly.


Can I Scrap My Car Without The Logbook? 

Did you know that you can scrap your car without the logbook? It’s not always easy to find it, and sometimes just don’t have one. Luckily, there are steps you can take to make sure you get the best value for your old vehicle even if it doesn't have a logbook. Here are some things to consider when scrapping without a logbook.

1) Compare prices - When scrapping with or without a logbook, comparing prices is essential because each dismantler will offer different rates depending on what they pay for cars themselves. Some dismantlers may only buy certain models of cars where as companies like us will buy any car.


It's important to compare prices from a number of dismantlers before choosing who to use.


2) Supply all the necessary documents - As well as comparing prices, it is also vital that you provide the right documentation when scrapping without a logbook. For example, some companies will need to see your drivers license, passport and proof of address.


3) Find the best fit - Finally, remember that you are not committed to any company and can always change your mind if necessary, even with us!


Can You Scrap Cars For Cash? 

The Scrap Metal Dealers Act of October 2013 outlawed cash payments for scrapping cars. This is because people would often illegally scrap stolen or abandoned vehicles and then offer the owner a few hundred pounds in cash to take them away. But if someone offers you a wad of cash, don't accept it! They're unlikely to be lawful scrappers. Along with this law, there are many other things you should do before accepting an offer to scrap your car- asking for their name and contact details so you can check them out later, and always keeping your own records of everything that's agreed on during the transaction.
