Frequently asked questions

It’s normal to have questions about scrapping your car. We’ve covered our most frequently asked questions here – but don’t hesitate to get in touch if we can provide any further information.

You’ll be paid after collection. We ask the scrap car buyers we work with in Basildon to inspect each car they collect to make sure it’s in the condition described when we provided a quote. As long as it is, the payment will be made shortly afterwards.

Our entire network of scrap car yards in Basildon can pick up a car with no wheels. They will never drive a scrap car away – instead, they’ll always use specialist recovery vehicles.

You can do this by applying for a number plate retention certificate through the DVLA, either online or through the post. It’s important to make sure this process is complete before your car is collected to be scrapped.

Yes, we can. The strict law that surrounds scrap collection does require someone to be with your car, but it doesn’t have to be the registered keeper or owner. If you’re nominating someone else, please make sure they have a form of photo ID with them (a passport or driving licence is ideal). If you can’t provide the DVLA V5C log book, you’ll also need to make sure they’ve got a proof of address with them. Our scrap collection services don’t take these documents away – they simply need to see them when the car is picked up.

Yes. Our partners who provide scrap car removal in Basildon are equipped to scrap, recycle, and dismantle a huge range of vehicles, including those used for commercial purposes.

Yes, they do. Since each of our collection partners have the equipment to move a huge range of damaged vehicles, flat tyres are not problem.
