We’re proud of our service

We know the motor industry can sometimes be an intimidating place – and this is why we go above and beyond to make sure we provide absolutely outstanding customer service.

Our commitment to service begins long before anyone gets a quote. We’ve created the best network of scrap yards in the UK – so when the time comes to get a price, we can search far and wide to make sure we’ve tracked down a price that will not be beaten.

It’s not just our prices that we’re proud of though; we’re also confident that you won’t find better service anywhere – we even help to make sure you get a free collection service for your car and help to complete all your DVLA paperwork when your vehicle’s picked up. We’re certain you won’t find a more straightforward way to scrap your old or accident damaged car.

Your car will fund charity work

Road safety on Essex roads is at something of a standstill. Despite investment and initiatives to improve accident numbers, there are still nearly 12,000 incidents annually – many of them writing off the cars involved. 

As a result, Essex produces more scrap cars than virtually any other county – but it’s cars like this that we can transform into funding for charities. 

Our unique social value programme means that part of the profit that’s made when we handle your scrap car sale will go to support a range of good causes across the UK – from food banks to supported living houses.

Frequently asked questions

Got a question about scrapping your car? No problem! We’ve covered a few of our customer’s most common queries here.

An authorised treatment facility – or ATF – is a scrap yard that’s proved it meets strict environmental expectations relating to the handling or scrap vehicles and materials. Since only ATFs can produce the paperwork needed to confirm that your car’s been scrapped correctly, they’re the only scrap yards we work with.

You don’t, but we do need somebody to be there on your behalf if you aren’t available. If you choose someone to stand in for you, they must have a photo ID to show our collection partner, and they’ll also need to provide a utility bill with their address on from the past 3 months if you don’t have your V5C document available.

Of course. Missing parts may impact the price you’re offered, but our collection partners are happy to recover all scrap cars.

Yes, we will. It’s worth remembering that missing wheels can impact your price – so you might get more money if you leave them on the car, but if not, just let the scrap yard know when they get in touch to confirm delivery.

Scrap value is based on weight. Since cars tend to weight different amounts, the scrap value will vary. We’ll always try to maximise the amount you receive by seeking prices from specialist dismantlers who may offer more for your specific car.

Of course. Our collection driver will be happy to help you complete section 9 of the V5C document (or, on newer documents issued after April 2019 – section 4). They’ll also show you which part you should keep and which part to send on to the DVLA.
