Today’s scrap buyers know that almost every part of an old car has recycling potential as well as being a source for scrap metal. The reasons for choosing to recycle a car are varied, and could include crash damage or simply having failed the MOT.

“I didn’t even know such a service existed, but when it was time to get rid of our car that was going to be too expensive to get through its MOT, I googled scrapping a car, and this site came up. So this was my first use of ScrapCarComparison, and it was pretty quick and easy.
A little sceptical to begin with, but I got a bit more cash than the local breakers yard was offering, and they came and took it away too. Would use again.”
“Got a better price than other sites, really friendly and helpful staff on the phone, everything was very easy.”
“Quick and easy. Pleased with the amount offered. Much more than anyone else. The process from start to finish was spot on”
Scrap Yard FAQs
Does It Cost Anything For A Quote?
No. All of our quotes are absolutely free with no obligation. Our service doesn’t have any hidden fees or charges and so when you sell your car through our service you won’t have to pay a penny.
What Documents Do I Need?
When scrapping your vehicle the buyer of your vehicle will need to verify your identity for legal reasons and as a result you will need to provide the following paperwork, if applicable:
- Photo ID
- V5C registration document
- Any vehicle history (old MOTs, receipts, service history etc)
Can I Keep My Personalised Plates?
If you have personalised plates on your vehicle you can absolutely still keep them, however you will need to transfer the vehicle registration number over to another vehicle or onto a Retention Document, before the vehicle is taken to an ATF to be scrapped. If this is not done and the vehicle is destroyed then the vehicle registration number will be destroyed and you will be unable to use it on another vehicle. To transfer or retain ownership of the vehicle’s registration number you will need to apply at your closest local DVLA office.
Does My Car Have To Be On A Public Road?
No, however it does need to be on stable ground which is accessible for a recovery vehicle. If your car is kept elsewhere or in a particularly difficult location please ensure that we are aware so that we can advise the buyer of your vehicle to bring the right recovery equipment to retrieve it.
Will You Haggle On Collection?
No. All of our prices are guaranteed subject to inspection. This means that the price you are quoted is the price you will receive so long as the vehicle has been described accurately during the quotation stage.
Can I Scrap More Than One Vehicle At A Time?
Yes as long as you have relevant paperwork. If you need to dispose of multiple vehicles you may also be interested in our fleet disposal services.
When Will I Get Paid?
All payments are put through once the vehicle has been collected, so you’ll get paid the very same day. If you have any more queries on the scrapping process, read our most frequently asked questions or get in touch with us.
