Scrappage FAQsScrap Yard FAQs

What Happens To My Car?

Once you have accepted a quote for your vehicle the buyer will contact you to arrange the collection of your vehicle. What happens once your vehicle is collected will depend on the reason why the vehicle was bought. The vehicle may have been purchased to be dismantled and scrapped at an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF), or it may have been bought for salvageable parts; in which case parts of your car will be taken apart and fixed, or used to return another vehicle to the road. This guide explains more about what happens to your scrap vehicle. 

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.

How Can I Get My Insurance 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 insurance and if you pay your insurance annually you may be eligible for a reimbursement. In order to find out if you are eligible you will need to contact your insurer directly, ensuring you have your policy number to hand when doing so.

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. 

What Do I Need On The Day Of Collection?

On the day of collection, if you have them, you will need to provide the following:

  • All sets of keys
  • Photo ID – driving license or passport
  • Provide your v5c (also known as a logbook) 
  • Any service or MOT history 

Find out how to prepare your car for scrapping in our useful guide. 

What Do I Do If I Don’t Have A V5c?

In the event that you do not have the V5c ‘registration certificate’ you can either apply for a replacement using a V62 form or scrap the vehicle and have a Certificate Of Destruction issued. In this case the collector may request proof of identification and ownership of the vehicle. Please note that insisting your vehicle is sold for scrap may limit the amount offered as salvage vehicles tend to retrieve higher quotes. To find out more, read our helpful guide on scrapping without a v5c. 

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.
