Scrapping a car may appear to be a difficult process, but it is actually rather simple and straightforward. Scrapping is a great choice if your car has failed its MOT, has been damaged in a crash, or is just no longer financially viable to keep running. It comes as no surprise that these are the most common reasons for people to consider scrapping a car.
Getting a good deal on your car has never been easier.
So, what is the procedure for scrapping a car?
We've perfected the process to make it as simple and quick as possible, to the point where our customers frequently comment on how easy it was to scrap their car.
We've broken it down into two simple steps:
locating a scrap car buyer
The first step is to find the right buyer.
Customers may have previously been charged for vehicle removal, and some existing companies have been known to charge hidden collection fees, but we ensure that our buyers are honest in all aspects of their service. Not only do our buyers pick up your vehicle for free, but the quote you accept is the one you'll get. There are no hidden costs or collection fees; it's just car scrapping simplified.
So, what happens if my car isn't worth scrapping?
We've also taken care of that. We are able to offer a free collection service from you to take your vehicle to the nearest Government Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) and recycle it for you because of our close relationships with our buyers. Although, in the vast majority of cases, you should be paid for your vehicle if it is complete and has not been dismantled.
What is the best way to find out how much my scrap car is worth?
Simply fill out our simple quote form with your vehicle registration number and postcode. Our system will then compare scrap and salvage prices from a nationwide network of buyers to ensure you get the best deal for your vehicle.
Step 2: Payment & Collection
Our team will contact you once you have accepted the quote to go over everything with you and answer any questions you may have. Our buyers will contact you to schedule a pickup time that is convenient for you. Our buyers will always ensure that the vehicle is collected from a location and on a date that is mutually convenient to both parties, as long as the vehicle is accessible by a recovery vehicle. Whether it's on your own driveway, a nearby road, a nearby garage, or even further away. Your vehicle may be collected without you present in some circumstances; however, this varies from buyer to buyer and is discussed on a case-by-case basis.

What is the procedure for receiving payment for scrapping my car?
Payment terms vary by collector, but in most cases, you will be paid immediately after collection. The majority of our collectors pay via instant bank transfers, but business cheques are also a well-known and widely accepted method of payment in the industry. Our customers' safety is paramount, and as a result of recent legislation, our buyers do not allow cash transactions for scrapped or dismantled vehicles.
