Car.co.uk supports community projects

An enormous 2,250 cars have been involved in accidents in and around Cambridge over the past 5 years – with many of them so badly damaged that they are written off by insurance companies. You may think that written-off cars are crushed and forgotten about – but at Car.co.uk, we transform cars like these into amazing opportunities.

The funding that’s created through the dismantling and recycling of cars helps us to support many vital community initiatives around the UK; including food redistribution networks, assisted living projects, and employment training programs.

Using scrap cars to support vulnerable people

A great deal for your scrap car in Cambridge also creates life-changing charity donations.

At Car.co.uk, we're proud to support a large number of charities and good causes in the UK and abroad – and your scrap car quote will help us to continue these important contributions.

As well as being positive for the environment, recycling your old or damaged car with Car.co.uk means we can:

  • Fund HMP training academies
  • Support assisted living schemes
  • Help to grow food redistribution networks

Social value projects like these don't just positively impact the people who access them – their effect can be felt much more widely – not least by reducing the strain on the emergency services, local healthcare provisions, and wider social care services – all of which are often close to breaking point.

Directly helping charitable causes by scrapping your car

Scrapping your car might not feel like something that could make a life-saving change to a person's life – or food for a child who might otherwise go to bed hungry – but when you do it with Car.co.uk, this is exactly the kind of work you're helping to deliver.

Frequently asked questions

We appreciate that scrapping a car isn’t something most people do very often – so we’ve answered some of our most frequently asked questions here.

Yes, you can. We just ask that you replace the aftermarket stereo with the one that was originally in the car. Don’t worry if this isn’t possible – it might just mean a slightly lower price for your car.

You must make a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) through the DVLA website. If you do, you will be legally required to follow their official guidelines and make sure your car isn’t driven or stored on a public road.

Yes. All of the collection partners that we work with have the resources required to collect and handle a car that doesn’t have wheels.

Before you scrap your car, you should apply for a number plate retention through the DVLA. You can do this online or through the post. You’ll be able to transfer the registration to a different vehicle - or to an official Retention Document so you can use the number plate on a suitable car in the future.

An ELV is an End of Life Vehicle. It’s the name that the government and DVLA give a car that can no longer be used on the road. End of life vehicles must be dismantled, depolluted and recycled at authorised vehicle scrap yards.

Yes, they can. Almost all of our Cambridge scrap car dealers and collection partners can recover, scrap, salvage, and recycle vehicles of all shapes and sizes.
