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 Leicester – 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:

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.

Frequently asked questions

Of course. You’re likely to get a better price for your vehicle if you can replace it with the original factory fitted unit – but a missing stereo won’t stop one of our scrap partners buying your car.

When our scrap collection partner picks up your car, you’ll both need to complete section 9 of the V5C log book. This lets the DVLA know that you’ve sold your car to a dismantler or trader. It’s your responsibility to do this, but the person who’s picking up your car will be happy to assist.

That’s okay. If you’ve changed your mind, please just let us know as soon as you can. If our collection partner comes to pick up your car, they may charge you for the wasted journey if they weren’t informed.

Yes. To keep your personalised registration number, you should apply for a number plate retention certificate through the DVLA. Retaining your registration will mean you can use it on another car in the future. You can apply for a retention certificate online or through the post – and you should do so before the car is picked up.

We value each car individually – and the price you’re offered is based on the weight of the vehicle, as well as any elements we can recover through recycling. If the car is being scrapped, any extras or modifications will not add to this price.

Unfortunately not. The car scrap yards we work with, in the Leicester area have to ensure the car is present and was accurately described before it is collected. Payment will be made promptly after collection, in line with the scrap car network’s terms.
