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.
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.
The Vehicle Isn’t Registered To Me, Can I Still Scrap It?
Yes. If you have the registered keeper’s permission, and a signed note to state this, in addition to photo ID and a recent utility bill.
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
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.
