The process couldn’t be easier

We know that Car.co.uk customers don’t want to spend a lot of time calling scrap yards and haggling over prices – so we remove all that hard work from the scraping process. 

Our straightforward way of working starts with the quotes we provide. With your registration and postcode we can look at prices from dismantlers near to you – and sometimes prices from national companies who are willing to travel to collect your vehicle. We’ll return the highest price instantly – so you can be confident you’re getting the best possible deal.

On collection day, your car will be recovered from your location, at a time that suits you. Before the car leaves, the collection driver will even help you to complete your official V5C paperwork if you have it – before explaining which parts you need to post to the DVLA.

Your scrap car will support local community projects

Annually, car accidents cost Leicestershire local authorities a combined £164 million – a figure that breaks down to around £163 per taxpaying resident. At Car.co.uk, we believe that cars written off in accidents like these should give something back to local communities – so that’s exactly what we do.

When you scrap your car in Leicestershire, part of the profit that it generates for our business will be used to support partners charities here in the UK. From food banks and breakfast clubs – to HMP Academies and adult training schemes, a great deal for your car also means a great deal for local good causes.

How do scrap cars help us change people's lives?

At Car.co.uk, we transform scrap cars into funding for social value projects

Scrap cars and charity work might not be two things you think go hand-in-hand – but, at Car.co.uk, we’re trying to change that.

When you choose our service to recycle your vehicle and find scrap car buyers in Leicestershire – you don’t just get an amazing price – you also get to know that you’re directly supporting a number of social value initiatives around the country.

A portion of the profit that your car generates will go towards running:

  • HMP Academies
  • Food redistribution networks
  • Assisted living services

As well as the people who are directly supported by these initiatives, the positive impact they have on communities spreads far and wide – reducing crime rates, easing the strain on the emergency services, and allowing tax money to be channelled to the areas in which it’s most urgently needed.

Frequently asked questions

Don’t worry if you have questions! We’ve covered some common queries here – but you’re always welcome to get in touch if you need further answers.

Missing keys are not usually a problem for our partner dismantlers – as each scrap yard has the specialist equipment needed to move a car that cannot be unlocked or started.

Very possibly. You’ll need to check the DVLA guidance carefully, but as long as your car isn’t being driven or stored on a public road, you’re probably eligible for a SORN. To apply for a SORN, you should contact the DVLA, either by post – or instantly, through their online service.

If you change your mind about the quote we’ve provided to scrap your car in Leicestershire, it’s important you let us know as soon as you can. If you do not tell us and a recovery partner attempts pickup, they may charge you for any time that’s wasted.

Yes. The Leicestershire scrap car dealers we work with have the equipment needed to collect cars with missing or damaged wheels.

As the current registered keeper, it’s your responsibility to fill out section 9 of the V5C log book. On newer log books (issued after April 2019) it will be section 4 that you need to complete. The slip should be returned to the DVLA, confirming you are no longer responsible for the vehicle. Don’t worry if you’re not 100% sure about what to do or which details to complete; the person who collects your car will be happy to help.

Yes, we will. When you accept your quote, you’ll be able to pick a time that’s right for you.
