The simple and stress-free way to find your premium Wickford car scrap yard

Our customers always come first

We know what our customers need when the time comes to say goodbye an old car. The first is to find the best scrap car prices in the Wickford area, but we’re also aware that price isn’t always everything. For many of our customers, the reassurance of dealing with a reputable and trustworthy company helps to eliminate stress; minimum interference into their busy lives is often high on their priority list.

That’s why we take care of every last detail. When you pick your best choice from your scrap car quotes around Wickford, you also get to choose a time that’s most suitable for you. Our collection partner will call you to let you know they’re on their way, remove your car with the minimum of fuss, and present you with full payment once they’ve helped you complete the DVLA paperwork. The whole thing will be over in next to no time and with the least stress and impact on your busy day-to-day life.

Investing in community initiatives

When you use Car.co.uk to choose one of the scrap dealers in Wickford, you’ll automatically be part of a process that helps some of society’s more vulnerable people. We reinvest part of the proceeds from each purchase into local charities and community projects, many of which work to help the homeless, the unemployed, and reintegrating individuals who need a little extra help finding their place in society.

Despite Essex being one of the counties that has improved its road safety statistics over the past few years, it is still falling short of international targets, and at an annual cost of over £300m. Wickford’s own road safety statistics have improved vastly however, cutting accident numbers almost in half from 10 years ago. Being able to reinvest some of this huge figure back into society where it’s most needed is an important factor in Car.co.uk’s process.

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 Wickford 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:

  • Supported living schemes for people who may otherwise face homelessness
  • Food redistribution networks that ensure no good food goes to waste
  • HMP Academies and training programmes designed to reduce reoffending

While the charity work provides an obvious benefit for the people who engage with it – a wider, overall effect is felt by communities when these projects ease the strain on the police, the courts, social housing resources, and the benefits system.

Frequently asked questions

We often come up against specific issues our customers are unsure of to deal with. The following are a small selection we think will be of interest to you. If you’ve got a question that’s not on the list – you can browse our full range of FAQs.

That’s ok – but we really need you to let us know as soon as possible. If we can’t cancel the collection with our scrap partner and they call to collect your car, you could still be invoiced with a call out charge.

You will need to apply for a number plate retention certificate through the DVLA. You can do it online or through the post. This allows you to transfer your private registration to a different vehicle or hold it on an official Retention Document. Please make sure you have confirmation that the transfer is complete before your car is collected.

All of our scrap partners are Authorised Treatment Facilities and will receive a COD document on the completion of your car being scrapped. Once they receive it, they will send you a copy for your records that you can send to your insurance company.

Plenty of our collection partners have the equipment to retrieve a vehicle with no keys. Rather than trying to drive the car, your vehicle will be moved with specialist tools.

Yes, we do. While missing wheels may impact your price slightly, they won’t stop up from arranging a quick collection.

Yes. Commercial or domestic, every vehicle has value to our Wickford scrap yard partners, so they’ll happily accept them all.
