We donate to community charities

Road safety in Swadlincote is improving significantly. Where local roads saw around 90 accidents annually a decade ago – that figure has almost halved, with just 49 accidents in the last 12 months. 

Unfortunately, this improvement is not reflected in the wider Derbyshire region. Serious accidents are up 3% in recent years, despite safety initiatives designed to reduce these numbers. If this increase continues, the county’s roads will miss international road safety targets and fall further behind the UK as a whole.

Whether your car has been damaged in an accident – or is simply suffering from age-related wear and tear – we’ll make sure it goes on to provide important funding for UK good causes. Using our scrap car services means you’re supporting our social value programmes across the country.

Using scrap cars to create real social value around the UK

An unbeatable deal for your scrap car can also be life-changing for vulnerable people around the country

When we help you to find the best scrap car prices from vehicle recyclers in the Swadlincote area, our unique way of working means we're also providing an incredible service for a number of charities and good causes, both in the UK and abroad.

The social value projects we support include:

  • Supported living schemes for people who may otherwise face homelessness
  • Food redistribution networks that ensure no good food goes to waste
  • HMP Academies and training programmes designed to reduce reoffending

While the charity work provides an obvious benefit for the people who engage with it – a wider, overall effect is felt by communities when these projects ease the strain on the police, the courts, social housing resources, and the benefits system.

Frequently asked questions

Our customers often have questions about scrapping their car. We’ve covered some of the most frequent queries here, but don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to ask something that’s not on the list.

You’ll need to complete section 9 of the V5C – this is the yellow tear-out section that you’ll find on the third page of the document. It’s your legal obligation to fill this out and return it to the DVLA – allowing them to update car ownership records. Don’t worry if you’re not 100% certain about what to do; our collection driver will be happy to help.

Yes, they do. Many of the car scrap yards we work with in the Swadlincote area have the means to collect, dismantle, and recycle a wide variety of commercial vehicles – including vans.

Of course. When you accept one of our quotes and are ready to book your collection time, you’ll be able to select a time slot and date that’s exactly right for you. Our scrap partner will be in touch directly too – and will call before they set off; giving you time to get to the car if it’s stored elsewhere.

It’s no problem if you don’t have the keys for your car. Our car scrap dealers in Swadlincote have the necessary equipment needed to pick up your car, even if it is inaccessible or can’t be started.

Yes, that’s fine. Scrap metal law states that someone must be with the car – but it doesn’t have to be the owner or registered keeper. If you’d like to nominate someone else, you’ll need to make sure they have a valid form of photo ID with them – a passport or driving licence is ideal. If you won’t be providing a V5C document with the car, you’ll also need to make sure they can provide a proof of address too.

Yes, we will. An official ‘Certificate of Destruction’ is actually produced by the DVLA – before being sent to the Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) that’s handling your old car. When it’s received by the ATF scrap yard, they’ll make sure a copy is forwarded to you.
