We support important charities

The last 5 years have seen around 1,750 accidents occur on the roads around South Shields. What’s more, the level of serious accidents in the area is higher than the national average – with 1 in 5 hospital trauma admissions as a result of accidents on the road. 

With this higher than average number of car crashes in the region, it’s probably no surprise to find the number of cars written-off and scrapped is also higher than the national average.

At Car.co.uk, it’s cars like these that we use to generate funds for local good causes. While it’s easy to image scrap cars are just crushed and forgotten about – we’ve proved they can offer much more. If you’re planning to scrap your car today in South Shields, choosing our service will mean that a portion of the profit that we generate from your car will directly support some of the UK’s most-loved charities.

How do scrap cars help us change people's lives?

At Car.co.uk, we transform scrap cars into funding for social value projects

Scrap cars and charity work might not be two things you think go hand-in-hand – but, at Car.co.uk, we're trying to change that.

When you choose our service to recycle your vehicle and find scrap car buyers in South Shields – you don't just get an amazing price – you also get to know that you're directly supporting a number of social value initiatives around the country.

A portion of the profit that your car generates will go towards running:

  • HMP Academies
  • Food redistribution networks
  • Assisted living services

As well as the people who are directly supported by these initiatives, the positive impact they have on communities spreads far and wide – reducing crime rates, easing the strain on the emergency services, and allowing tax money to be channelled to the areas in which it's most urgently needed.

Frequently asked questions

We’ve covered answers to some of our most common customer queries here – but don’t hesitate to browse our full range of FAQs or get in touch using our instant messenger service if you have a question that’s not on the list.

Yes, of course. It’s likely you’ll receive a better price if you can put the original unit back in its place – but don’t worry if that’s not possible, our scrap partners buy cars with missing components.

The term ‘ATF’ is short for ‘Authorised Treatment Facility’. This is the name given to a vehicle scrap yard that meets strict government guidelines around how scrap cars are handled and depolluted. Since this accreditation is required to officially begin the DVLA scrapping process, each of our South Shields scrap car yards is ATF approved.

No problem. COD is short for ‘Certificate of Destruction’ – the document that’s created by the DVLA confirming that your car has been disposed of. A copy will be sent to the scrap yard handling your vehicle – and they’ll make sure a further copy is forwarded to you.

Yes, they are. We do ask that our scrap partners do a visual inspection of the car to make sure it’s present and meets the description that was given when we provided a quote – but as long as it is, the price we offered is the price you’ll receive.

Yes, that’s absolutely fine. Legally, someone must be with the car when it’s collected – but it doesn’t have to be the owner. Please just make sure your nominated person has a form of photo ID with them that they can show our collection partner. Also, if you can’t provide the V5C with the car, your chosen person will need to show a recent utility bill, council tax bill or bank statement as proof of their address too.

Provided your car is not being driven or kept on the road, you may be able to make a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN). You can do this by contacting the DVLA, either by post or via their dedicated online service.
