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)
Do You Scrap Vans?
Yes! Our process for scrapping vans is very similar to the way we scrap cars. Just fill out and submit our online form and we’ll give you quotes for the van scrappage from local scrap collection agents
based in and around your area. Your chosen provider will collect the van at a time that suits you.
I Have Taken Parts Off My Vehicle, Can You Still Scrap?
Removing parts off your vehicle may significantly affect the price in which you are quoted as it means your car may only be suitable for scrap, and not salvage purposes. However your vehicle will still be worth something. In order to find out what the value of your vehicle is, simply fill out the above form with your vehicle’s details and we will search our nationwide network of buyers for you to find the most suitable buyer and price for you.
I Don’t Have The Keys For My Car?
That’s ok, however if you don’t have the vehicle’s car keys please ensure that you let us know at the initial quote stage so that we can ensure the buyers we find for you have the correct recovery equipment to retrieve your vehicle. Read more in our handy guide.
My Car Is Still At The Scene Of An Accident, Can You Collect It?
Unfortunately not. Whilst the buyers on our network can retrieve vehicles from a variety of locations they do not operate in roadside assistance and therefore cannot collect vehicles from the scene of an accident.
Do You Buy Insurance Write-Offs?
Yes. Our network of buyers spans nationwide and consists of specialist buyers for both scrap and salvage vehicles. So regardless of the condition of your vehicle, if you are selling a category car we’ll be able to find somebody interested in purchasing it. Read more in our Buy Back Hub.
My Vehicle Has Fuel Left in it, What Should I do?
Our buyers have to assume that any fuel left in a vehicle may be contaminated and so all fuel will be removed during the depollution process, but this will not affect the purchase price given. We advise against removing fuel yourself due to the health and safety risks of handling flammable liquids.
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.
