Frequently asked questions

We know you probably don’t scrap cars very often – so we’ve shared some of our most frequently asked questions here. If you’ve got a question that’s not on the list – you can either check our full range of FAQs – or get in touch using our instant messenger service.

Yes, that’s no problem at all. To make sure you don’t lose your personal registration mark when you scrap your vehicle, you should contact the DVLA to make sure it’s removed from the car. The quickest way to do this is through their online service – although you can download postal forms from the website too. It’s important to make sure the registration mark removal is complete before you scrap the car – as it can be difficult to get your plate back later.

On collection day, you’ll need to complete section 9 of the V5C log book document relating to the car. Section 9 is the yellow slip on the third page of the form – and, when sent back to the DVLA, will update their ownership records. As the current keeper of the car, it’s your responsibility to do this – but the person collecting your vehicle will be more than happy to help.

No. The Washington car scrap yards we are partnered with must inspect the car before payment – just to make sure it was described accurately when we issued a quote. Assuming it was – payment will be made promptly after collection.

Yes, we can. We often help people to scrap cars that have been so badly damaged that the keys no longer function – so it’s possible to scrap a vehicle without the means to unlock or start it.

Yes, that’s fine. The law that surrounds scrap car collection states that someone over the age of 18 must be with the car – but it doesn’t have to be the legal owner or keeper. Please make sure that your chosen family member has photographic proof of their ID and if you won’t be providing the vehicle log book – proof of their address too.

ATF is the official term used to describe a scrapyard that meets with rules and regulations around the handling of scrap materials. An ‘Authorised Treatment Facility’ is the only kind of scrap trader who can fulfil the DVLA’s car destruction requirements – so all our partners hold this accreditation.
