Scrap Yard FAQs
How Do Your Online Quotes Work?
Once you have added in your registration number and postcode, we will compare prices across our network of trusted buyers. The prices are generated against a number of factors to do with your vehicle, as well as the price of scrap metal in the fluctuating market. We will send you the best quotes so you can choose the quote you’d like to accept.
Our quotes are guaranteed, ensuring that there are no surprises when one of our drivers comes to collect your vehicle, or when we pay you!
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)
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.
I Have Taken Parts Off My Vehicle.
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.
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.
How Can I Donate To Charity?
The ‘Donate A Car’ scheme allows you to get rid of your old, damaged or unwanted vehicle and give the profit you make to one of our chosen charity partners. You can choose to donate all, or some of the profits which all go towards a fantastic cause.
Donating a car to charity also enables you to avoid the hassle of selling your car on yourself. Here are some amazing reasons why you should donate a car.
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.
