You may think that written-off cars are simply scrapped – but Car.co.uk can transform damaged cars like these into amazing social opportunities.

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 Edinburgh – 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.

Directly helping charitable causes by scrapping your car

Directly helping charities and promoting positive change

Your car might have reached the end of its life on the road – but it still has a lot to offer for charities and good causes in the UK and beyond.

Frequently asked questions

We understand that scrapping a car isn’t something most people do every day – so we’ve answered some of our most frequently asked questions here.

Yes. You should apply for a number plate retention through the DVLA. You can do this online or through the post. You’ll be able to transfer the registration to a different vehicle or to an official Retention Document. It’s important you do this before the vehicle is collected.

An ELV is an End of Life Vehicle. It’s the official name given to a car that is no longer suitable for road use. End of life vehicles must be dismantled, depolluted and recycled at authorised treatment facilities.

They do. Almost all of our Edinburgh scrap car dealers and collection partners can recover, scrap, salvage, and recycle vehicles of all shapes and sizes.

Yes. You’re likely to get a slightly better price if you can put the original stereo back in its place though – although this isn’t essential.

You can make a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) through the DVLA website. If you do, you must follow their official guidelines and ensure your car isn’t driven or stored on a public road.

Yes. All of the collection partners that we work with have the resources required to collect and handle a car that doesn’t have wheels.
