Vehicle Recycling Stroud
Vehicles are no longer dumped in a big heap at the scrap yard and left. Much of the scrap process now is really a recycling process. When a car is scrapped, many of the parts – such as the steel and zinc bodywork, rubber tyres and glass windows can be recycled and reused, going on to be used within many different industries.
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. Whatever the reason, if you’re looking to recycle your car in Stroud or the surrounding area, get in touch with us today or get a quick quote using our online form.

“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.”

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)
My Car Is Not At My Home Address, Can You Still Collect?
That’s ok! Our collectors can pick up vehicles from a multitude of locations. Just be sure to enter the vehicle’s postcode at the quote stage when you enter your vehicle’s details so that we can ensure that we contact relevant buyers who operate in your vehicle’s location.
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.
Do You Remove Other Types Of Scrap?
No, we only specialise in comparing prices for scrap and salvageable vehicles.
How Can I Get My Tax Reimbursed?
If your vehicle has been declared off the road and a Statutory Off Road Notification has been issued, or once your vehicle has been collected, you can cancel your tax and if you pay your tax annually you may be eligible for a reimbursement. Find out more in our useful guide on reclaiming tax and insurance.
Do You Quote on Salvage Cars?
Salvage cars are worth more than scrap cars. If you have a salvage van or car, don’t take it to the scrap yard, fill in our online form and get immediate prices. If you have any more questions on collection, payment or the process, visit our scrapping FAQ page.
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.
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.
