Looking for the scrap car prices anywhere in East Sussex?

The best prices – guaranteed!

We realise that scrapping a car isn’t something you’re likely to do very often – but since it’s something we help thousands of people with every month, we’re confident we can make the process quick and straightforward.

Your car will give something back to UK charities

East Sussex roads experience almost 6,500 road traffic accidents every year – a staggering number that costs local authorities over £90 million. 

Since this financial strain is generally felt by taxpayer-funded services, we work hard to give something back to local communities – and your car will help us to do that.

As well as getting you a great price for your vehicle, part of the profit it helps us to generate will be used to support a range of community charities around the UK. From food banks to adult training programmes – a great deal for your car is also a great deal for local good causes.

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 East Sussex, 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.

Directly helping charitable causes by scrapping your car

You can help us make a difference

Effective recycling of cars isn't just a positive thing for the environment – it can have a life-changing impact on real people in local communities.

Frequently asked questions

It’s normal to have questions about scrapping a car! We’ve covered a few here – but you’re welcome to get in touch if you can’t see the answer you need.

Absolutely. Although the V5C log book can look a little intimidating, it’s actually simple to complete. You’ll need to fill in section 9 (or section 4 on log books created after April 2019) – then detach the slip from the rest of the document and return it to the address on the back. Don’t worry if you’re not 100% confident though, our scrap collection driver will be happy to help.

The term ‘ATF’ stands for ‘Authorised Treatment Facility’. This is the official title given to a scrap yard that follows strict government guidelines relating to the depollution and disposal of scrap cars. The scrap car dealers we work with in East Sussex each meet ATF accreditation.

An ‘ELV’ is an ‘End of Life Vehicle’. The term describes any vehicle that shouldn’t or can’t be used on the road; either as a result of wear and tear or damage. End of life vehicles are dismantled, depolluted, and then recycled at accredited car scrap yards in East Sussex.

Yes, we do. Your car will be subject to a quick inspection to make sure it was described properly when we issued a quote – but as long as it was, the price we offered is the price we’ll pay.

No, they don’t. The East Sussex car scrap yards we’re partnered with are instructed to pay after collection – giving them the opportunity to check that the car was accurately described when we provided a quote.

Assuming you wish to keep your private registration mark when you scrap your car, you’ll need to make sure it’s removed from the car using the DVLA’s official service. You can do this quickly online – or through the post.
