In the past, you’d take your car to be scrapped, and it would be crushed and left to rust in a local scrapyard. Nowadays the process of car breaking has moved on from simple scrappage to a more involved recycling process. In Essex modern cars may need scrapping or recycling for a wide range of reasons, such as being written off following a collision, or an expensive MOT failure where a replacement car is the better option. Whatever the reason might be, if you have a car in the Essex area that needs scrapping, complete our online form today for a quote, and we’ll be in touch soon.

Could I sell my car for scrap?

The answer is yes – even if it isn’t fit for the road any more, an old car can still raise cash.
