The scrap dealers in Watford that we’re partnered with will collect your car at a time and location that’s right for you. We’ll also make sure you get all the help you need to complete the official paperwork that’s required. We strive to give you a stress-free experience from start to finish.

Support for local communities

Watford roads have seen a staggering 4,300 accidents over the past 5 years – meaning the area is on track to significantly miss international targets relating to road safety. With such large numbers of road traffic accidents, it’s no surprise to learn that Watford sees more than the average number of cars written off by insurance companies each year. 

At Car.co.uk, we help to make the cars written off in accidents like these return value to the local communities that need it the most. The vehicle recycling work we do helps to fund residential programs, HMP academies, and food redistribution networks - both locally and nationally. Our investment in social value programmes means real people benefit when you use our car scrapping service.

Frequently asked questions

We know scrapping a car isn’t something you’ll do very often – so it’s normal to have some questions. We’ve covered the most common ones here, but you shouldn’t hesitate to contact us using our instant messanging service if you’ve got a query that’s not on the list.

Yes, we can. A COD or ‘Certificate of Destruction’, is created when the salvage yard who buys your scrap car in Watford begins the dismantling process. As soon as the certificate gets to the scrap yard, they’ll make sure a copy is sent on to you.

When your car is collected, both you and the collector will need to complete section 9 of the V5C log book document, which must then be sent to the DVLA. This process confirms that you are selling or transferring your vehicle to a dismantler. It is your responsibility to do this, but the collection partner who picks your car up will be happy to assist and check the paperwork for you.

We understand that people’s circumstances change - but it’s important you let us know as soon as possible. If you do not tell us you have changed your mind, and a recovery partner arrives to collect your car, they may charge you for the wasted journey.

ELV is a car industry term for an ‘End of Life Vehicle’. ELV is used to describe any motor vehicle that can no longer be used - either as a result of wear and tear or accidental damage. End of life vehicles are dismantled, depolluted and recycled at Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs).

No, we won’t. The dismantlers we work with that will buy your scrap car in Watford must ensure that the car is present and was described accurately when they provided a price. Payments will be made promptly after collection.

Yes, that’s no problem. After accepting your quote, you’ll be able to select a recovery time that’s perfect for you. The collection partners who support us with scrap car removal in Watford will call to confirm this time in advance.
