No last minute price drops or renegotiations, just a straight forward and simple process always.
How we price your Smart car model
When you get a quote with us we’ll use your registration plate to find all of the relevant details; model, year manufactured, weight, MOT status, estimated mileage. This gives us a good idea of whether your car needs to be scrapped or could be salvaged. If your Smart car is deemed necessary to be scrapped then we’ll check prices from the best scrap yards in your area. They’ll bid for your car based on its weight rather than condition, mileage or existing faults.
In a lot of cases we are able to salvage your car which gives you a bigger cash payment than simply scrapping it. Salvaging means finding a buyer from your car from across the UK who will either attempt to fix it or strip it for parts. Whereas scrap prices are based on your vehicle’s weight, salvage prices are based on overall condition, mileage, any existing damage and ease of repair. We accept:
- Crash damaged cars
- Insurance write offs
- SORN vehicles, missing DVLA paperwork and those without an MOT

Known for their nimbleness and ability to navigate crowded cities with ease, Smart is a brand that conjures up images of convenience and compactness. However, things can, and do, go wrong and Scrap Car Comparison is here when it does. Here’s some interesting themes we’ve seen from scrapping thousands of Smart cars…
Most scrapped models: We mostly saw the ForTwo (73% of all scrapped models), Smart’s original and most popular mini model. We see a lot of ForFour models too (22%), a hatchback model which adds capacity for two extra passengers. The Roadster (4%), Smart’s attempt at a cool sports car, is also seen prominently.
Most scrapped year: Our most scrapped years are 2005, 2004, 2003 and then 2006. This suggests that Smart does have better than average reliability as most cars scrapped last year were originally registered in 2007.
