We make accidents work for communities

Last year was one of the safest on record for Accrington’s roads – with just 40 road traffic accidents recorded in and around the town. 10 years ago, local roads saw an enormous 135 accidents during a 12-month period – so recent safety initiatives have helped to reduce collision numbers by over 80%. 

Owing to these improvements, the majority of cars that are scrapped are now as a result of MOT failure and or age-related wear, rather than accident damage.

If you’ve got an old or damaged car that you’re hoping to sell for scrap in Accrington, by using Car.co.uk, you’re helping our support of charitable organisations that help to deliver important services to local people. From food banks and breakfast clubs to supported living provisions and employment training, your car will help us to continue adding social value in the North West.

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 Accrington, 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 answered some of our most frequently asked customer questions here. If you’ve got a question that’s not on this list, why not ask one of our experts? You can use our instant messaging service to access all the answers you’re likely to need.

Don’t panic – keeping your private registration mark is no problem. To do so, you should apply for a number plate retention certificate through the DVLA. Retaining your registration will mean you can use it on another car in the future. You can apply for a retention certificate online or through the post – but it’s important to make sure the process is complete before your car is recovered.

Missing wheels won’t stop us collecting your car – as our well-equipped partners use specialist recovery vehicles. If your wheels are likely to be missing, our collection partners would appreciate you letting them know when they call to confirm your collection.

No, the car scrap yards we work with in the Accrington area all follow the Scrap Metal Dealers Act (2013) – so it’s important that someone over the age of 18 is with the car on collection day. The person who hands the car over to our collection driver doesn’t have to be the owner or registered keeper of the car though – but they will have to show a proof of ID, and, if you can’t provide the V5C document, a proof of address too.

Yes, you can. You’re under no obligation to sell your car to us – but it’s important that you let us know quickly if you’re going to change your mind, as we’ll need to cancel our collection before anyone is charged for a wasted journey.

We value each car individually – and the price you’re offered is based on the weight of the vehicle, as well as any elements we can recover through recycling. We’ll always try to maximise the value of your vehicle by shopping around specialist dealers who are looking for specific makes and models.

An ATF is an ‘Authorised Treatment Facility’ – the name that’s given to a scrap yard or dealer which has proved it handles cars in line with the requirements of the environment agency. Since only ATF accredited scrap yards can dismantle a car in line with DVLA guidelines, they are the only scrap partners we work with.
