Finding the best prices from scrap car yards and dealers in Saltcoats doesn’t have to be hard work – but it often is. After making dozens of calls to haggle and compare prices, you’ll generally be expected to arrange delivery of your vehicle – but, at Car.co.uk, we remove all this hard work.

Converting car scrap into community care

Like the rest of Scotland, road safety around Saltcoats is improving. In fact, serious accident numbers are down around 7% in recent years – meaning that around 95% of all cars scrapped the area now come as a result of age-related wear and tear.

While it’s vitally important that scrap materials produced by old cars are handled in a way that’s good for the environment, we also make sure that vehicle recycling gives something back to local areas too. 

When you use Car.co.uk to sell your car for scrap in Saltcoats, part of the revenue it helps us to generate will be invested in social value programmes in communities around the UK. From offender rehabilitation programmes that reduce crime rates, to supported housing services that help fight homelessness, your car will help us to support some of the country’s most vulnerable individuals and families.

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 Saltcoats – 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.

Frequently asked questions

There’s often more to scrapping a car than just handing over the keys. Here are a few of the questions we are regularly asked about specific parts of the process. If you’ve got a question that’s not on the list – why not get in touch using our instant messenger service?

You can apply to transfer your private plate to another vehicle or a number plate retention certificate, either using the DVLA website or through the post. Please make sure you complete the process before arranging your car’s collection.

An Authorised Treatment Facility (sometimes referred to as an ‘ATF’ on official documents) is a scrap yard or dismantler that has proved it adheres to the strict law surrounding the handling of scrap vehicles. ATFs are the only facilities that can provide the official documentation declaring your car as dismantled.

The DVLA issues a Certificate of Destruction (COD) to the collection partner who recovers your car. Once the official process of scrapping your vehicle is complete, they will receive the COD document and will forward you a copy for your insurance company.

You don’t, but somebody does. If you can’t be present, you can choose a friend or family member to hand over your vehicle. They’ll have to have a photo ID to show our partner. They will also be required to show a utility bill or bank statement from the past 3 months if the V5C document isn’t available at the time of collection.

The value of your car will be based on its weight. This is the standard measure for scrap facilities – although we will always look for quotes from specialists who’ll often offer more for specific makes and models.

Don’t worry; missing keys won’t stop our collection partners recovering your car. Rather than try to drive it, a dedicated vehicle will be used to move it.
