We focus on great customer service

For many people, scrapping a car will be something you do just once or twice in your entire motoring lifetime. This means you’re likely to have questions – including:

  • Will I have to call scrap yards to compare prices?
  • Will I be expected to haggle to get a good price?
  • Which paperwork will I need to complete?

At Car.co.uk, we make it our job to remove all the uncertainty from the process – and that begins when you get a quote.

We don’t expect you to call around scrap yards – in fact; we can instantly find the best prices from our UK-wide scrap network – so you get a top price immediately. You won’t need to haggle either – we promise you’ll be paid exactly what you’re quoted.

We’ll even look after the collection of your car too – and, when we do, our collection driver will make sure you’ve completed all your DVLA paperwork correctly, so you can be certain your responsibility for the vehicle is wrapped up when it leaves!

Your car will help vulnerable people

At Car.co.uk, we work differently to other scrapping services. 

Across Derbyshire, around 6,850 cars are damaged in accidents every year. Many of these cars are written off – and all these accidents contribute to a £114 million strain put on the taxpayer-funded local authority and emergency services each year.

When you scrap your car in Derbyshire with Car.co.uk, a portion of the money it helps us generate goes back into supporting good causes and charities that have a positive impact on taxpayer-funded services – actually putting money back into the system.

Using scrap cars to support vulnerable people

A great deal for your scrap car in Derbyshire also creates life-changing charity donations.

At Car.co.uk, we're proud to support a large number of charities and good causes in the UK and abroad – and your scrap car quote will help us to continue these important contributions.

As well as being positive for the environment, recycling your old or damaged car with Car.co.uk means we can:

  • Fund HMP training academies
  • Support assisted living schemes
  • Help to grow food redistribution networks

Social value projects like these don't just positively impact the people who access them – their effect can be felt much more widely – not least by reducing the strain on the emergency services, local healthcare provisions, and wider social care services – all of which are often close to breaking point.

Directly helping charitable causes by scrapping your car

Help us to deliver positive change

Scrapping your car might not feel like something that could make a life-saving change to a person's life – or food for a child who might otherwise go to bed hungry – but when you do it with Car.co.uk, this is exactly the kind of work you're helping to deliver.

Frequently asked questions

Most people have questions about scrapping their car – so we’ve covered a few of our customer’s most common queries here.

Yes, of course. You’re under no obligation to use our service – we’ll just need to cancel your collection, so please let us know ASAP.

Yes. It’s actually the DVLA who issues the Certificate of Destruction (COD) – but as soon as a copy arrives with the scrap yard that’s recycling your car, they’ll make sure a copy is sent out to you.

No problem at all. It’s actually only section 9 of the V5C that needs to be completed and returned to the DVLA. It’s worth noting that since their introduction in April 2019, this section is now section 4 of the form. Don’t panic if you’re not sure exactly what to fill out; our collection driver will be happy to help.

Yes. To fulfil the requirements of the DVLA, a scrap yard must be considered an ‘Authorised Treatment Facility’ – or ATF. Each of our scrap yards meets with this important set of standards – so you can be sure your car will be handled in accordance with the law and in a way that’s as kind as possible to the environment.

Unfortunately not – the partners we work with that will buy your scrap car in Derbyshire must ensure that the car is present and was described accurately during the quote. Don’t worry though, payment will be made promptly after collection.

That shouldn’t be a problem. When you accept a quote to scrap your car, you’ll be offered a number of collection times – and you can select a pickup slot that works for you.
