Scrapping cars to benefit communities 

Despite its relatively small size, St Albans sees a huge amount of traffic using city-centre roads. In fact, the A5183 is one of the UK’s most frequently congested roads outside London – with heavy traffic for 84 hours every week. With such a large amount of traffic, it’s probably no surprise to hear that accident numbers are higher than average too – with nearly 650 collisions recorded in the past 5 years.

It’s vehicles that are damaged or written off in accidents like these that Car.co.uk can use to support important local charities. When you choose our service to scrap your car in St Albans, part of the proceeds these vehicles create will help us to provide life-saving funding to some of the UK’s best-loved charities.

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 St Albans, 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 listed some of our most common questions here – but we’re always happy to chat if you have a query that’s not on the list. Use our instant messaging service to speak to one of our experts whenever you need.

Yes, of course. We know lots of people replace their standard stereo and wish to keep it when they scrap their car. If this is the case, we ask that the original stereo is put back in its place wherever possible.

The scrap car removal services we work with in St Albans will value your car based on its weight – and since different cars weigh different amounts, we’ll need the make and model to provide an accurate quote. As your car is being scrapped, any additions or modifications will not add to the price.

Yes, they can. A Certificate of Destruction (COD) is a document issued by the DVLA - then sent to the Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) that scraps your car. All of the car scrap yards we work with in the St Albans area meet with government ATF approval. Our collection partner will send you a copy of your certificate when your car has been processed.

ATF is short for ‘authorised treatment facility’ – the official name given to a scrap yard that meets with the strict health, safety, and environmental guidelines set out by the government and the Environment Agency. Every scrap yard we work with meets with this approval.

If you change your mind about a quote, we’ll just ask that you let us know as soon as possible. If you don’t, and a scrap partner tries to collect your car, they may make a charge for the wasted journey.

As long your car isn’t being driven or kept on a public road, you may be able to make a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN). You can do so on the DVLA website, or through the post.
