Scrapping your car - Frequently Asked Questions

Who tells the DVLA that my car has been scrapped?

This is not something you need to worry about as if you have supplied the correct logbook for the vehicle we will notify the DVLA that you car has been taken for scrap.

How long before you come to collect my scrap car?

We can usually be with you within a few days or you contacting us. (Our drivers work both evenings and weekends.) In some cases, we can even collect a vehicle within the hour!

Can I claim back unused road tax?

Yes, you will need to get a v14 form from the post office or take a look at the DVLA website.

What happens once my scrap car is towed away?

Your car is disposed of in the most environmentally friendly way possible. It goes through the strict processes we follow. We remove everything that can be recycled from the car before it is crushed.

What areas can you collect scrap cars from?

We're able to collect scrap cars from almost anywhere in UK. If you have a scrap car give us a ring and find out how we can help.

Are you a professional vehicle disposal company?

Of course. We only use vehicle recycling facilities that are licensed by the environment agency. We specialise in disposing of vehicles in an environmentally sound way. Having traded for many years now we enjoy a superb reputation for quality service.

Shall I notify the DVLA that I no longer own the car?

No, we notify the DVLA that you have scrapped your vehicle (as long as the logbook is supplied with the car).

Are you open on the weekend to scrap my car?

As most people work weekdays and are not around due to work commitments we work 7 days a week. (We don’t have a weekend in this industry!)
