Scrapcarcomparison.co.uk is THE comparison site to use when you need to get rid of that tired car, motorbike or van sitting in your driveway. We will compare a wide selection of the best prices across the whole of the UK within a few minutes. You may be wondering how the prices of scrap cars are decided? Well the weight of your car is the main indication, the heavier the vehicle – the more value it has. When the vehicle has come to the end of its life, it will finally be crushed and the metal it is made from will be recycled to use again, in vehicles or other products. However, there are other factors such as certain makes, models or engines that are considered to be worth more which can also play a part in the price. Some collectors will be willing to offer a higher price for specific vehicles, other than the usual scrap metal value per tonne, which is usually when they know that they can make more profit out of recycling your vehicle. This is where we help you the most, comparing offers from scrap buyers who will give you a variety of prices depending on your specific car. However, we don’t simply give you the highest price, unless the highest price is what you are after. We’ve been helping people sell their vehicles for many years and understand that a reliable collection at a convenient time for you is also vital in ensuring your collection happens smoothly.
By using our online site, you save yourself so much time compared to ringing around all of the possible scrap merchants or salvage yards and other buyers in your area. Also, if you were to do this you could be missing out on some of the nationwide buyers that we work with. They can offer some of the highest possible prices and have been in the industry for many years. You are in safe hands as all of the collectors and buyers that we work with will fill out all necessary forms correctly, ensuring that later on down the line you don’t end up with any extra fines for a car that you no longer own. This means that you don’t have to worry about any dodgy wheeler dealers.
As you may already be aware the government changed the law regarding the legal payment methods for scrap cars, last year in October 2013. So you will no longer be able to be paid cash at the point of collection for your scrap car. Nowadays the normal way for you to get paid will either be via a business cheque or an instant bank transfer when the recovery truck arrives to collect your vehicle.
Our online service is free to use! Simply fill out the form, including your vehicle registration and your postcode and our system will provide you with the best price in your area. Our fully trained staff will always give you a quick phone call to confirm your details to ensure we have provided you with the best and most accurate price before booking your collection in. We will then instruct the collector of your booking, who will be an Authorised Treatment Facility, to give you a second call to arrange a convenient day and time to come and pick up your vehicle. They will pay you via business cheque or instant bank transfer when the driver arrives and complete all the necessary DVLA paperwork. Once you have signed the paperwork, the driver will take your car away after leaving you with a receipt for the transaction.
So now that you know exactly how to scrap your car, van or motorcycle try scrapcarcomparison.co.uk now to ensure you are getting the true value of your vehicle. We have already done the hard work so you don’t have to!
