We provide unbeatable service

Like most people, you’ll probably only scrap a small number of cars in your motoring lifetime – that why, at Car.co.uk, we work hard to make sure the process is easy, simple and transparent.

That commitment to great service begins when you request a quote. We don’t just provide the first price we find, we make sure you receive the best quotes from car scrap yards in the Oakham area – so you can pick a price that works for you.

When you’ve found a great price, we’ll help you to arrange a quick collection too. We know the moving an old or damaged vehicle often can’t be done safely – so rather than expect you to drive it, we’ll make sure it recovered – from any location.

When the car’s ready to leave, our collection partner’s driver will even help you to make sure your DVLA paperwork is completed and ready to send off. That way, you can be absolutely certain that when your car sets off on its final journey, your responsibility has been completely handed over.

From start to finish, we’re convinced there’s no better way to scrap your car!

Helping communities in need

Oakham and the wider Rutland area see only a very small number of road traffic accidents every year – often fewer than 100. As a result, the overwhelming majority of cars scrapped locally come as a result of MOT failure or general wear and tear. 

Whether your car’s been involved in a rare accident on local roads – or has simply come to the end of its road-going life, we can use it to help provide financial support for charities and good causes around the UK.

Our unique way of working means that a portion of the profit that’s generated when you use our service to find scrap dealers in Oakham goes to support a range of social value programmes – from crime reduction initiatives to food redistribution networks. A great deal for your car also helps some of the most vulnerable people in local communities.

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 Oakham, 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’ve answered some of our most common queries here. If you’ve got a question that’s not on the list, you can either get in touch using our instant messenger service – or you can browse our full selection of FAQs.

To declare your car off the road, you should contact the DVLA, either by post or online, and apply for your Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN). You will be reimbursed for any unused complete months of vehicle tax you’ve already paid for.

The value of a scrap car is based around how much it weighs. As such, larger cars with bigger engines tend to be worth more than smaller vehicles. However, we’ll always try to maximise the value of your car – by seeking quotes from specialist breakers who sometimes offer more for certain makes and models.

An End of Life Vehicle (ELV) describes any vehicle that can no longer be used or economically repaired.

To confirm that you are transferring your vehicle to a motor trader, you and the collector will need to complete section 9 of the V5C, which you must then return to the DVLA. It is then your responsibility to return the document to the DVLA, but our collection partner will happily check the paperwork for you.

ATF is short for Authorised Treatment Facility. These scrap yards and recyclers follow legal guidelines when depolluting your vehicle before its parts are disposed of or recycled.

The DVLA issues a Certificate of Destruction (COD) to the Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) that scraps your car. All of our partners meet government ATF approval, so when they receive your COD they will forward a copy to you.
