Scrap cars can help good causes

Collisions in Preston contribute to a £323 million strain that road traffic accidents put on local authorities across Lancashire. When broken down, that’s a cost of around £219 for every Preston taxpayer each year. At Car.co.uk, we’ve proved that cars damaged and written-off in accidents like these can create jobs and opportunities for communities around the North West.

Whether your vehicle is damaged in an accident - or has simply reached the end of its life, we can use a portion of the profit it will generate to support life-changing social value programmes around the UK. If you’re planning to scrap your car in Preston today, using our straightforward price comparison service doesn’t just mean a great deal for you; it means you’re directly supporting some of the country’s most loved charities.

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 Preston, 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.

Frequently asked questions

Got a question or concern about scrapping your car? Take a look at some of our previous customer’s most frequent queries. If you’ve got a question that’s not on the list – you can check our full range of FAQs – or get in touch using our instant messenger service.

Yes, you can. You can transfer your registration mark to another suitable vehicle or a retention certificate using the DVLA’s online or postal service. It’s important to make sure this process is complete before your car is collected, as trying to transfer a plate after the car is sold can be difficult or just not possible.

An ELV is an ‘End of Life Vehicle’. This is the official term used to describe a vehicle that can no longer be used on the road – either because of damaged incurred during an accident, or general wear and tear. The DVLA require ELVs to be dismantled and recycled at government authorised treatment facilities.

No, that’s okay. Since your car will be scrapped, it’s not necessary to provide the keys – a Preston car scrap dealer with the right equipment will collection your vehicle.

Yes, that’s fine. We do require that someone is with the car – but it doesn’t have to be the registered owner or keeper. If it won’t be yourself, please make sure your nominated person has a form of photo ID with them, and, if you’re not able to provide the V5C document with the car, a recent proof of address.

No. The Preston car scrap yards we work with have to ensure the car is present and was described accurately when we provided a quote. Payment will be made promptly after collection.

ATF is short for Authorised Treatment Facility – another name for a vehicle scrapyard, breaker’s yard or dismantler. An ATF follows legal guidelines to ensure vehicles go through a depollution process before parts are disposed of or recycled. Each of the scrap car partners we work with in Preston holds ATF certification.
