Frequently asked questions

We know scrapping a car isn’t something most people regularly do. Therefore, we’ve tried to answer some of our most frequently asked questions here. If you have a question that’s not on the list, you can browse our full selection of FAQs – or get in touch using our instant messaging service.

The scrap value of a car is based on weight – and because different cars weigh different amounts, this means the price will vary. We’ll always help you get the maximum amount for your car by getting quotes from car scrap yards in the Colchester area that specialise in certain makes and models.

No problem. We do need someone to be with the car, but it doesn’t have to be the registered keeper or owner. If it’s going to be a nominated person who’s with your car when it’s collected, please ensure they have a form of ID with them (ideally a passport or driving licence) and, if you can’t provide the V5C document, a recent proof of address.

Yes, that’s fine. If possible, please put the original stereo back in the car – but don’t worry if this isn’t possible – our scrap buyers will purchase your car in any state of disrepair.

It’s your legal responsibility to complete section 9 of the V5C log book document and return it to the DVLA. Don’t worry if you need some help though, the person who’s collecting your car will be happy to assist.

The price of your scrap car is calculated based on weight – and the parts our scrap collection partners know they can salvage or recycle. As such, we’re unable to offer anything additional for modifications or extras.

No. To keep your personalised number plate, you should apply for a retention through the DVLA. You can do this quickly and simply online – and you should make sure the process is complete before you scrap the car.
