How does the Car.co.uk scrapping process work?

We’re proud to offer the quickest and simplest way to scrap your car anywhere in the UK. In fact, it’s so straightforward - we can break it down into 5 easy steps.

How-it-works

Step 1

Get an instant online quote

We’ll provide an unbeatable price with just your registration and postcode

Our innovative way of working means that we can provide an instant online quote for any UK vehicle - based on just a registration number and the car’s location. We’ll immediately return the best price from our UK-wide network of scrap partners.

Step 2

Arrange the free collection
of your car

No need to deliver! Simply choose a collection time that suits you

We know that many scrap cars aren’t fit for the road – so our quote includes free collection from any location. What’s more, we’ll arrange the recovery of your vehicle for a time that suits you – meaning there’s no need to wait in all day.
How-it-works

Step 3

Let us know how you’d like
to be paid

We ensure a quick payment after your car’s been collected

When we provide a quote, we’ll need to take some account details from you – that way, we can make sure you get a prompt payment to the bank of your choice when your vehicle’s been collected. We make sure our whole process is safe, secure, and convenient.

Step 4

Our friendly team recovers
your car

We’ve got an outstanding scrap collection partner based near you

Your car will be collected at the time you’ve selected. When it is, you can be assured you’ll get a quick and friendly service from a collection driver who’ll be happy to help with all your paperwork. All you need to do is have your vehicle documents and ID ready.

Step 5

Your car is recycled and
supports our social value model

When it leaves you, your vehicle will help us change people’s lives

Recycling your vehicle helps us to generate vital funding for a number of partner charities through our social value programme. When you use Car.co.uk, you’re supporting assisted living services, food redistribution projects, and offender rehabilitation schemes - each helping families and vulnerable people across the UK.
