What happens when you scrap my car?

So you’ve found yourself on the Scrap Car Network website, thinking to yourself, “I’d like to scrap my car.” – so far, so good.

Simply enter your car’s registration number and your postcode to get started. We’ll ask you to tick a few boxes so we can find out more about your car, then you’ll need to enter your contact details. That’s it. Once we’ve got that information, we’ll prepare a competitive, no obligation scrap car quote and contact you to arrange a time and day for your free scrap car collection.

2. Car Collection day

At the agreed time, one of our reputable local collection partners will be along to pick up your scrap car. You’ll know it’s us because we’ll keep you informed every step of the way, and our friendly collection crews are always happy to show ID.

If you’ve got the DVLA paperwork for your car (the V5 Log Book or SORN), now’s the time to hand it over to our driver. We’ll deal with all the legal stuff, and we’ll send you the official Certificate of Destruction, so you can be sure you’ve disposed of your car in line with all the proper rules.

Our customers are the best guide to our scrap car collection service – we’ve got a 9.2/10 rating on Trustpilot.

Our happy customer Di said:

“Excellent service. They kept in touch via email and phone at every stage. Polite staff who worked around my needs. Will recommend to others every time. Thank you!”

While Steve wrote:

“No waiting around, car collected by friendly pick up driver and was pleasantly surprised that money was paid into bank account on same day.”

So there you are!

3. Sale, salvage or scrap your car?

As recycling and waste management experts, we’re all about trying to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle when it comes to waste. And we take the same approach with the scrap cars we collect:

If your car is still roadworthy we’ll try and find a buyer for it.

If your car still has salvageable parts we’ll reuse what we can and recycle the rest.

If your car is a total write-off we’ll recycle up to 100% of the parts – as much as we can.

By prioritising reuse over recycling, we’re making our service as environmentally friendly as possible, which is good news for everyone.

Some things to bear in mind…

Now we’ve looked at our 3-step scrap car recycling process, you should have a good idea of what to expect when you become the latest customer to say – Scrap my car with Scrap Car Network. All that’s left is to get started on step one!
