Scrap 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.
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:
- Photo ID – driving license or passport
- V5C registration document – also known as the logbook
- Any vehicle history (old MOTs, receipts, service history etc)
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 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.
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.
Does It Matter If I Do Not Have Any Service History?
No. Any service history is appreciated however it is not a requirement. If you do not have any service history for the vehicle please ensure you have stated this during the quote process.
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.
