What are the scrap car prices in London?
The good news is that scrap car prices are directly linked to the weight of your car or van. And those prices reflect the national average for scrap metal in the UK. Our network of approved scrap yards in the West Midlands offer competitive prices for your vehicle.

We can even scrap imports, classic cars, modified cars and carry out commercial fleet disposal. We use your registration plate to find the specific model and price according to the manufacturer’s weight of the vehicle. On the rare occasion we don’t find your make and model details we’ll escalate your quote to our specialist team to research the vehicle and find you an unbeatable price.
Can my damaged, broken, missing MOT car be scrapped?
Yes we can scrap just about any car or van in any condition. We might need to adjust the prices we offer if there are parts of your vehicle missing. But if you have a damaged car, a car with no current MOT or even if it’s an insurance write off we can get you a price and arrange a collection.

How is salvaging different from scrapping?
Car salvaging is the process of reclaiming the vehicle so it isn’t dismantled and recycled, but instead fixed or stripped for parts. Salvaging nearly always gets you a better price for your car or van, but we do need to know more about the car’s condition. Find out how to salvage your car.
What will happen to my scrap car?
If your car is scrapped then the vehicle will be recycled. This means all of the components and parts will be stripped and processed in line with national environmental standards. Nearly all of the materials will be used to build new cars in what is considered a circular automotive economy. Find out more about car recycling.
