We donate to important social value projects

Last year, roads around Long Eaton saw just 38 road traffic accidents. Although it would be incredible to see no accidents on local roads at all – this figure is an enormous improvement on the 129 collisions that the town saw in the same time frame a decade ago. 

This significantly improved safety outlook on our roads means that the majority of cars scrapped around the area now come as a result of age-related MOT failures – rather than crash damage.

Whatever brings your vehicle to the end of its road-going life, scrapping your car in Long Eaton using our service allows us to generate funds that we contribute to social value programmes around the UK. From homes for people who would otherwise be sleeping on our streets – to breakfast clubs for children who would otherwise go hungry – using our service makes a real difference.

Proving that the motor industry can work for real people

Our unique way of working will see your scrap vehicle turned into funding for social value projects

Although cars are our passion, it's actually social value initiatives and community charity work that's at the heart of what we do.

After helping you to find a great price from a scrap car yard or vehicle recycler in Long Eaton, a portion of the funds that your car helps us to generate will mean we can provide financial backing for a number of important causes, including:

  • HMP Academies: Helping to reduce reoffending rates
  • Supported living services: Reducing dependency on social housing
  • Food redistribution networks: Creating meals for those experiencing poverty

While these initiatives have a direct impact on the people who use them, the benefits are often felt much more widely. The charity projects we support have been proved to ease the huge demands put on taxpayer-funded services - including the police, local healthcare, the courts, offender management services – and many more.

Directly helping charitable causes by scrapping your car

You can help us make a difference

Effective recycling of cars isn't just a positive thing for the environment – it can have a life-changing impact on real people in local communities.

Frequently asked questions

We know scrapping a car isn’t something people do very often – so we’ve covered some of our most frequently asked questions and queries here.

If you have upgraded your head unit, simply replace it with the original that came in the car. If this isn’t possible, we’d appreciate it if you could let our collection partners know when they call to confirm your collection.

Of course. You can remove the registration mark from the car using the DVLA’s online service. As long as this is complete before the car is recovered and taken to a scrap yard, you’ll be free to use the number plate on another car in the future.

Absolutely! Although the V5C looks quite intimidating, it’s actually only section 9 (the yellow section on the third page) that you need to fill out. Here, you’ll be expected to complete the date of the transfer – along with the name and address of the company buying your car. When complete, you should send this back to the DVLA address you’ll find on the rear. Don’t panic if you’re not sure about any of these points – the collection driver who picks up your car will be happy to assist too.

Yes. ELV is short for ‘End of Life Vehicle’ – the name used to describe a car that can no longer be legally used on UK roads. ELVs must be dismantled and recycled at Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs) – and since all our scrap partners meet this standard – we are fully equipped to handle all ELVs.

Our prices are guaranteed. We ask our collection partners to check that the condition of the car is the same the description that we based our quote on – but as long as it is, the price we’ve offered is the price you’ll receive.

No. We understand the people sometimes change their mind – we just ask that you let us know as quickly as possible – so we can cancel our collection partner’s journey.
