Vehicle Recycling Rochester
For years gone by cars and other vehicles coming to the end of their lifetime would simply be scrapped at the local scrapyard, which would often mean they would be just crushed and left to rust. Fast forward to today, and old and expired cars benefit from the latest recycling techniques offered by modern technology, to the point where many parts are reused and most materials, especially scrap metal, are processed for recycling. Vehicles can be scrapped for a variety of reasons – perhaps an MOT failure where repairs are more than the value of the car, or perhaps their car has been written off following involvement in an unfortunate collision.

How Do Your Online Quotes Work?

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)
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.
Are Collections Free in Rochester?
Yes. All of our scrap and salvage buyers within our network operate with free collections as standard. So the price you are quoted for your vehicle, is the price you will receive, subject to inspection.
Does My Car Need To Be Clean?
Yes and no. The buyers on our network do not expect your vehicle to be cleaned, waxed and polished but they do expect all rubbish in the interior of your vehicle to be removed.
What Days Do You Collect?
Due to the expansive network of buyers we have, there are no set working hours for collection as each company differs from one another. All of the buyers on our network endeavour to retrieve a vehicle at a time which is mutually convenient so if you have particular requirements or limitations be sure to let the buyer of your vehicle know.
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.
