Helping people find the best scrap car prices in Ilkeston

Why choose our service when you’re looking for a car scrap yard in Ilkeston?

At Car.co.uk people come first

Although we’re working in the motor industry, our service is all about people – and scrap cars help us to deliver an outstanding service to those people in two different ways.

Outstanding service for our customers

We know that most people will scrap just one or two cars in their motoring lifetimes. As such, we’re on hand to pass on our knowledge and expertise when you need to do it. 

To make sure you receive the very highest level of service from scrap car dealers in Ilkeston, we’ve created a system that compares prices in an instant – so, when you request an instant quote from us, you can be sure the price you’re offered if the very best available that day.

It’s not just price that makes us different from other scrapping services though. We know that the majority of cars we handle aren’t safe to be driven on the road; so when we’ve found you an outstanding price, we’ll instruct a scrap car collection service based in Ilkeston to recover your car – completely free of charge. 

We take all the hassle and hard work out of scrapping your car – whatever condition it’s in.

We support vulnerable people around the UK

Each year, Derbyshire local authorities spend a total of around £115m on the services that support both the immediate and on-going impact of road traffic accidents. When broken down, that represents an additional £111 for every taxpaying Ilkeston resident.

At Car.co.uk, we do everything we can to make damaged cars give something back to local people – and we do it by funding social value programmes around the UK.

When you scrap your car with our service, a portion of the profit that it helps us to generate will directly fund a range of charity initiatives – from supported living services for people who would otherwise be homeless – to school breakfast clubs for children who might otherwise be starting their day of learning with an empty stomach.

Making the motor industry work for local communities

How will your car help us to continue our support of UK charities and good causes?

When you recycle your old or damaged vehicle by selling with Car.co.uk, you won't just get the best scrap car prices in Ilkeston – you also get to know that a portion of our profits from each car we scrap will be used to grow incredible social value projects across the country.

The projects we support include:

  • Offender employment and rehabilitation schemes
  • Food banks and school breakfast clubs
  • Assisted living provisions for vulnerable people

As well as providing much-needed support for the people who directly access these initiatives, the benefits are felt much more widely in local communities – often easing the pressure on taxpayer-funded services.

We know you might not ordinarily think about life-changing charity initiatives and the car industry as working together – but we're changing that – and scrapping your old or accident damaged car with our service will help us make this change.

Frequently asked questions

We know scrapping a car isn’t something most people regularly do. Therefore, we’ve tried to answer some of our most frequently asked questions here. If you have a question that’s not on the list, check out our complete FAQ section. We’ve covered everything we can think of that will help our customers with their own scrapping experience.

Yes, we can. The Certificate of Destruction (COD) won’t come from Car.co.uk directly – as it’s an official DVLA document. Instead, we make sure a copy is forwarded to you when our scrap partner receives their copy.

The value of a scrap car is usually based around weight – along with any parts that can be salvaged for recycling. That said, Car.co.uk will always look for prices from specialist car scrap yards in the Ilkeston area – and because they are often looking for specific makes and models, they’ll often offer more for a car they require.

Yes, that’s fine. Each of our scrap collection partners in Ilkeston abide by the strict Scrap Metal Dealers Act (2013) – so they will require someone to be with the car – but it doesn’t have to be the owner or registered keeper. As long as your friend can provide a proof of ID and proof of address, that satisfies their requirements.

Yes, we can. When we’ve found you an excellent quote, you’ll be able to select from a range of collection times our scrap partner has available. If there isn’t one that suits, just let us know and we’ll do our best to rearrange.

Yes, that’s fine. If you can replace the one you’re removing with the one that was supplied in the car new that would be great for our collection partner – but don’t worry if you can’t – just let them know when they call to confirm your collection.

You can apply to remove a number plate from any vehicle quickly and simply online. When the process is complete, you’ll be able to put that number plate on another suitable car – or save it for use on another vehicle in the future. It’s important to make sure this process is fully complete before the car is scrapped – as it can be very difficult to recover a registration mark if the car is destroyed.
