We support local community projects

While accident figures in Harpenden are often quoted as being much higher than average – this is often because a large stretch of the M1 between Luton and Hemel Hempstead is included in official statistics. In reality, Harpenden is a very safe place to be a driver – with less than 50 accidents happening on roads around the town each year.

Whether your car is suffering from wear and tear – or has been involved in an accident locally, we’ll be able to utilise it to supply funding towards local good causes. When you choose Car.co.uk rather than a trader who’ll offer to scrap your car for cash in Harpenden, you help us to continue to provide financial support for some of the country’s most important charities and social value programmes.

Proving that the motor industry can work for real people

Our unique way of working will see your scrap vehicle turned into funding for social value projects

Although cars are our passion, it's actually social value initiatives and community charity work that's at the heart of what we do.

After helping you to find a great price from a scrap car yard or vehicle recycler in Harpenden, a portion of the funds that your car helps us to generate will mean we can provide financial backing for a number of important causes, including:

  • HMP Academies: Helping to reduce reoffending rates
  • Supported living services: Reducing dependency on social housing
  • Food redistribution networks: Creating meals for those experiencing poverty

While these initiatives have a direct impact on the people who use them, the benefits are often felt much more widely. The charity projects we support have been proved to ease the huge demands put on taxpayer-funded services - including the police, local healthcare, the courts, offender management services – and many more.

Directly helping charitable causes by scrapping your car

You can help us make a difference

Effective recycling of cars isn't just a positive thing for the environment – it can have a life-changing impact on real people in local communities.

Frequently asked questions

We’ve answered some of our most frequently asked questions here – but if you have a question that isn’t on our list, you can use our instant messaging service to speak to one of our friendly and helpful team.

Yes, they can. Since all of our scrap partners meet with the regulations that surround scrap metal collection – each of them has ‘Authorised Treatment Facility’ accreditation – so they can begin the official DVLA scrapping process. When your certificate of destruction is issued, your ATF will send you a copy as soon as they receive it.

No, you’ll be paid after collection. The scrap car dealers we work with in Harpenden will need to ensure that the car is present and was described accurately during the quote.

Yes. Once you’ve picked your favourite quote, you’ll be able to choose a time that works perfectly around your schedule. When you’ve found the right time, our collection partner will be in touch and will confirm this over the phone.

Yes, they are. As long as the car has been accurately described when we issued a quote, the price you’ve been offered is the price that you’ll be paid – guaranteed.

‘ATF’ is a motor industry term that’s short for ‘Authorised Treatment Facility’. An ATF follows the law and surrounding regulation that applies to the collection, handling, and disposal of scrap materials. The DVLA stipulate that only scrap yards that carry this important accreditation can officially scrap a vehicle.

It’s no problem if you’ve lost or just don’t have keys for your car. The Harpenden scrap dealer responsible for the collection of your car will have all the equipment needed to retrieve your vehicle.
