Our collection service is available at a time to suit your needs, we are open for business every single day of the year 24/7.

We make sure that your car is disposed of the right way. Unscrupulous companies might sell your old car rather than destroying it, in a lot of cases such as these they do not even inform the DVLA of any change of ownership. This can put you in a very awkward position as if there are any fines issued you will be liable to pay them. Unlike these companies we always ensure that the DVLA are notified that your vehicle has in fact been scrapped, giving you complete peace of mind in Durham. When we scrap a car we always either reuse of recycle as much of the vehicle as possible and so do our bit for the environment.

We would like to keep our streets clear of abandoned vehicles and the service we offer really helps our local community. Having old broken down cars littering the streets makes the area look very run down and untidy, so scrapping your car will make your neighbours happy. Scrap that old car, call today!

Reasons to scrap your car

There are a lot of different reasons for wanting to dispose of an old car. The main reason in our experience is that the car is beyond repair, it will be cheaper to buy a new one. If you have a car that is unusable you need to either declare it off road or scrap it, otherwise your will continue to need to pay road tax on the vehicle.

The car scrappage scheme

The car scrappage scheme in Durham might seem like a great idea at first. However, you are in fact limited to what type of new car you can get. You cannot simply go out and purchase any car you wish. This can cause people a lot of misery as you might have your heart set on a particular car only to be told that, "the vehicle is not in the scrappage scheme".
