Working for the community

The Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety recently rated some Peterborough roads as the most dangerous in the UK, with accident rates 40% higher than the national average. As a result, the number of cars written off and scrapped in the city is much greater than the most other large cities.

Improvements in safety on Peterborough roads have helped toward an 8% decrease in serious accidents on Cambridgeshire roads over a 5-year period. While this is a positive step for the region, Peterborough itself still witnesses over 500 road traffic accidents every year – with many of the cars involved written off by insurance companies.

We use written off and damaged cars like these to help fund vital charity work across the country. If you’re looking to scrap your car for cash in Peterborough, using Car.co.uk means you’re actively helping the charitable causes we support. The funding we create helps to deliver assisted living for vulnerable people, food redistribution schemes, and HMP Academies that bring down reoffending rates both locally, and nationally.

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 Peterborough – 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.

Directly helping charitable causes by scrapping your car

Directly helping charities and promoting positive change

Your car might have reached the end of its life on the road – but it still has a lot to offer for charities and good causes in the UK and beyond.

That’s no problem - and it won’t stop us providing an online quote to scrap your car in Peterborough. Our scrap partner will bring specialist equipment that can move a car without keys.

When your car is taken to be scrapped, it’s your responsibility to complete section 9 of the V5C DVLA log book document.

As long as your car is being driven or kept on a public road, then you may be able to apply for a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN). To do so, you should contact the DVLA, either by post – or with their online service.
