What Do I Need to Scrap My Car?

All you need to do is provide a few details about your vehicle so that we can assess whether it’s suitable to be salvaged, or whether it should be scrapped.

Your vehicle information is then entered into our network of the best scrap and salvage buyers across the country. We hold every one of our buyers to the highest standards and offer the most professional vehicle disposal service in the industry.

When it comes to the collection of your vehicle, you will need to ensure you have the following documents, to make your collection as hassle-free as possible

  • Identification

What happens if my vehicle is too good for scrap?

If you’re looking at a car that’s maybe only just failed its MOT or that can be back on the road with a little work that you just can’t commit to, you might be thinking that sending it to the scrap pile might be a step too far.

Over 10,000 vehicles purchased each month

That’s where we come in! Almost 40% of all vehicles we process are actually sold as salvage, rather than scrap. This means your car will be sold and either used as spare parts or repaired itself and put back on the road. In almost all cases, salvage vehicles fetch a much higher price than their scrap equivalents, so while your car might be too good to scrap, never rule out a potential salvage sale!

To find out how much your car could be worth as a salvage vehicle, pick up the phone and speak to one of our advisors today. They’re experts in this field and will be more than happy to talk you through every step of the process.

How Do I Receive Payment For Scrapping My Car?

Over £18,000,000 paid out to our customers

Payment terms vary from collector to collector, but in most cases you will receive instant payment upon collection. The majority of our collectors pay via instant bank transfer; however, business cheques are also a recognised and common form of payment within the industry. The safety of our customers is paramount and, in line with the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, our buyers will not make payments in cash for vehicles destined to be scrapped or dismantled.

Will Scrapping My Car Impact The Environment?

It’s a common thought when you scrap your vehicle that your vehicle gets put into a crusher, turned into a cube and the metal is melted to be made into more cars; however, the process is a lot more intricate than that. Below you can see just how many different ways your car will be recycled once it’s scrapped.

Scrapping cars has a balanced impact, as whilst taking cars with dangerous emission levels off the road is positive for the environment, it also uses energy to recycle those vehicles.
