How does our car scrapping service work?
Step 1 – Get an instant quote for scrapping your old car.
Simply enter your car registration number and postcode to get an instant quote for your scrap car. If you wish to go ahead with your personal quote, then enter further contact details and tell us where the scrap car is located to help us prepare you the best quote possible! We’ll then contact you to arrange collection…which is free!
Step 2 – Arrange a convenient time for us to collect your old scrap car.
One of our local collection partners will come along to pick up your scrap car at a time and date agreed with you. If you’ve got the DVLA paperwork (the V5 [log book] or SORN) for your scrap car, this is the time to hand that over to our representative. We’ll make sure that all the legal stuff is dealt and we’ll also send you the certificate of destruction to avoid you getting an £80.00 fine!
Step 3 – Your car is recycled and helps support the Recycling Lives welfare charity.
If your car’s still in a roadworthy condition, we’ll try and find a buyer for it. If the car’s unsuitable to be reused, we’ll remove any car parts that we can reuse and sell those on. We’ll then recycle the rest of the car in an authorised treatment facility so we can get money for the scrap metal. And remember, because Scrap Car Network contributes funding towards Recycling Lives – social welfare charity – scrapping your car is not just good for the environment, it also helps us to support disadvantaged and homeless people.
