Using scrap cars to create real social value around the UK

An unbeatable deal for your scrap car can also be life-changing for vulnerable people around the country

When we help you to find the best scrap car prices from vehicle recyclers in the Clacton-on-Sea area, our unique way of working means we're also providing an incredible service for a number of charities and good causes, both in the UK and abroad.

The social value projects we support include:

Frequently asked questions

It’s normal to have questions when you’re looking to scrap your car. We’ve answered some of our Clacton-on-Sea car scrap customer’s questions here.

No, you won’t. The car scrap yards in the Clacton-on-Sea area that we work with are all expected to check the car before payment is made. Provided the car has been accurately described when we quoted a price – you’ll be paid promptly after collection.

The V5C log book document has a specific section that you will need to complete when your car is sold to a scrap yard or dismantler – section 9. This is the yellow part on the 3rd page of the booklet. Don’t worry if you’re not totally sure about any of the information that needs to be filled out on this form – our collection partner will be happy to help.

Yes, that’s no problem. A Certificate of Destruction (COD) is issued by the DVLA before being sent to the Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) that scraps your car. At Car.co.uk, all of our collection partners meet government ATF approval – so they’ll send a copy of your COD on to you as soon as they receive it.

That’s absolutely fine. The law surrounding scrap car collection does state that someone must be with the car on collection day – but it doesn’t have to be the legal owner. If you plan to nominate someone else, you’ll need to ensure they have a form of photo ID with them on the day. If you can’t provide the V5C document with the car, you’ll also need to make sure they can show our partner a proof of address too.

The collection partners that assist with our Clacton-on-Sea scrap car quotes all have the recovery equipment needed to move cars with no wheels. If you’ve sold your wheels, it’d be great if you could let the scrap partners know when they call to confirm your collection – just to make sure the correct equipment is brought on pickup day.

Yes, we do. We ask our collection partners to inspect the car when they collect it – but as long as it’s been accurately described when we provided a quote, the price we’ve offered is the price we’ll pay.
