Car.co.uk supports important charities

Outside of London, Reading has some of the slowest roads in the UK – with A-road speeds averaging just 15.7mph. Despite traffic being so slow-moving, the town still sees over 500 road traffic collisions every year, with many of these writing off the vehicles involved. Our car scrapping service turns cars like these into vital funding for good causes.

When you choose Car.co.uk to help scrap your car in Reading, you’re directly supporting a number of UK charities in the delivery of important social value programmes around the country – from food redistribution networks, to supported living provisions for people who could otherwise be homeless.

Frequently asked questions

Very few of our customers regularly scrap cars, so we’ve compiled some of our most frequently asked questions here. If you have a question and can’t find an answer, feel free to get in touch using our instant messaging service.

When scrapping a car, the price offered is based on its weight and the parts that can be salvaged for recycling purposes. As the weight of different models varies, this also varies the price you will receive.

Yes. You can do this by applying for a number plate retention certificate through the DVLA, either online or through the post. You will be able to transfer the registration to a different vehicle or an official Retention Document. It is important that you complete this process before the car is collected.

Yes, we can. After accepting the quote for your scrap car in Reading, you’ll be able to choose a time that’s exactly right for you. The person who’s collecting your car will also aim to call in advance to let you know they’re on their way.

Yes, we can. Our experienced scrap collection partners have the ability to recover vehicles that have been seriously damaged in accidents – so missing or non-functioning keys are not a problem.

When our collection partner arrives to pick up your car they will help with the completion of section 9 of the V5C log book – which then must be sent to the DVLA. This part of the document confirms you have sold your car to a trader or dismantler.
