We make cars work for local people

Over the last 5 years, Kensington roads have witnessed over 7,000 road traffic accidents. Despite this large figure – roads around London are becoming safer – having seen a 24% reduction in the number of serious accidents over a similar period.

Probably unsurprisingly, the busy roads around the capital see more cars written off than virtually any other part of the UK. When cars are badly damaged and written off, it’s easy to assume they’re just crushed and forgotten about – but we do something very different.

At Car.co.uk, we use vehicles that have reached the end of their life to generate funds for important social value programmes. If you’re planning to scrap your car in Kensington today, using our quick and easy service doesn’t just mean a great deal for you; it means we can use a portion of the profit that your car will create to support charities and good causes around the UK.

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 Kensington, 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 covered answers to some of our most common customer queries here – but don’t hesitate to get in touch using our instant messenger service if you’d like any further information.

As the current owner or registered keeper of the car, it’s your legal responsibility to make sure the DVLA are informed of any changes to the car’s ownership. Fortunately, you can do this quickly and easily using section 9 of the V5C document. When your car is collected, simply fill out this yellow section of the log book – complete with the details of the company who collects your car. When complete, you should send it to the DVLA address you’ll find on the rear. If there’s any part of the process you’re not sure about – our collection partner will be happy to help.

The best thing to do with a personalised registration mark is to make sure it’s removed from the scrap vehicle before collection. You can do this by applying for a number plate retention certificate through the DVLA, either online or through the post. You will be able to transfer the registration to a different vehicle or an official Retention Document.

The scrap price of a vehicle is based on its weight – and any parts that can be salvaged for recycling purposes. Since different vehicles weight different amounts (even similar models with different engine types), the best way to get an idea of what your car is likely to be worth is to request an instant quote.

Yes, that’s no problem. To maximise the amount you get for your car, it’s best to supply the stereo that came fitted in the vehicle – but don’t worry if that’s not possible, our collection partners will recover any vehicle – even if it’s got missing components.

For scrap purposes, the value of a car is based on its weight – and because different cars weigh different amounts, this will often mean the price varies. However, to help you get the best price for your vehicle, we get prices from a number of different car scrap yards in Kensington, and because some specialise in certain makes and models, they will often offer a higher price.

You’ll be paid promptly after collection. We ask the Kensington car scrap yards that we work with to ensure that the car is present and was described accurately during the quote.
