Frequently asked questions

We know that people don’t scrap cars very often, which is why we’ve compiled some of our most frequently asked questions here. If you have a query that’s not on the list – use our online messaging service to ask one of experts. They’re on hand to put your mind at ease, whatever you need to know.

Yes, we will. We are equipped to quote on and collect cars in a huge range of conditions – so missing wheels shouldn’t be a problem. In fact, we can collect just about any accident-damaged or broken down vehicle.

To keep the personal registration mark you have on the car; you will first need to officially remove it from the vehicle. The quickest way to do this is through the DVLA’s online service – although it can be done through the post too. When removed, you’ll be able to scrap the car with no fear of losing your personalised number plate.

Yes, we can. When you’ve chosen your preferred quote for your scrap car in Durham, you’ll be able to choose a date and time that’s exactly right for you.

Yes, we can. Usually, people require a certificate of destruction to satisfy their insurance company. If this is the case, it’s absolutely vital that you use a company who will provide a ‘certificate of destruction’ (or ‘COD’) and not a lesser document with a slightly different name. A COD is issued by the DVLA to an ‘authorised treatment facility’ – an important accreditation that all of our partners meets, so once they’ve received yours, they’ll send you a copy for your insurance company.

When our collection partner arrives to pick up your vehicle, they will help with the completion of section 9 of the V5C logbook – which then must be sent to the DVLA. This part of the log book confirms you have sold your vehicle to a trader or dismantler.

When you’re scrapping a car, the price offered is based on its weight and the parts that can be salvaged and recycled. As the weight of different models varies, this also varies the amount you will be quoted.
