Making the motor industry work for local communities

How will your car help us to continue our support of UK charities and good causes?

When you recycle your old or damaged vehicle by selling with Car.co.uk, you won’t just get the best scrap car prices in Scotland – you also get to know that a portion of our profits from each car we scrap will be used to grow incredible social value projects across the country.

The projects we support include:

  • Offender employment and rehabilitation schemes
  • Food banks and school breakfast clubs
  • Assisted living provisions for vulnerable people

As well as providing much-needed support for the people who directly access these initiatives, the benefits are felt much more widely in local communities – often easing the pressure on taxpayer-funded services.

Frequently asked questions

It’s normal to have questions if you’re hoping to scrap your car. We’ve provided detailed information here – but if you have a question that’s not on the list, you can explore all our FAQs or use our instant messaging service.

An ELV is an ‘End of Life Vehicle’ – the official name given to a car that’s no longer fit for use on the road. ELVs have to go through a strict depollution and scrapping process, in line with environmental laws. This scrapping process is carried out at government Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs).

Scotland scrap car prices are based on weight and elements of the vehicle we can salvage for recycling purposes. We’re able to maximise this price by working with specialist dismantlers; however, extras or aftermarket modifications will not add to the amount you’re offered.

Yes. The Scotland scrap dealers we work with have the equipment needed to recover a car that has missing or damaged wheels.

No, that’s fine. The collection partners we work with do require someone to be with the car, but it doesn’t have to be the owner or registered keeper. If it won’t be you, please ensure the person responsible has a piece of valid photo ID they can show the person collecting the car (a driving licence or passport is ideal). If you won’t be able to provide the V5C document with the car, your chosen person will also be required to show a utility bill dated within the last 3 months too.

No. It’s vital that you complete Section 9 of the V5C and return it to the DVLA. Don’t worry though, the person who collects your car will assist with the completion and explain what’s needed in more detail if you’re not 100% sure.

We understand that people’s circumstances change – so we simply ask you to let us know as soon as possible if you change your mind about scrapping your car. The scrap car dealers we work with in Scotland are extremely busy, and if you don’t let us know; they may make a charge for a wasted journey.
