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 Paignton – 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

Most people have a few queries about scrapping their car – so we’ve answered some of our most frequently asked questions here.

Yes, we will. We don’t expect the cars we collect to be in showroom condition, so missing wheels won’t be a problem. It’s a good idea to mention this to your collection partner when they call to confirm your collection time, so they can be sure to bring all the necessary equipment to retrieve your car.

As long as the person you nominate to be with your car at collection is over the age of 18, that’s fine. The law surrounding scrap collection does say someone must be with the car – but it doesn’t have to be the owner. Please make sure the person you nominate has a form of photo ID with them on collection day – and, if you can’t provide the V5C with the car, a recent utility bill or other similar proof of address too.

Yes, that fine. If possible, putting the original stereo back in its place will help our collection partners achieve the best return for your vehicle and will be greatly appreciated.

ELV is the official term for a car that can no longer be safely used on UK roads. The term stands for ‘End of Life Vehicle’ – and is usually used to describe a car that has been badly damaged in an accident – or is no longer safe to use because of wear and tear.

Yes, of course. The scrap yards we work alongside each have the equipment and experience needed to scrap vehicles of all shapes and sizes.

Yes, we do. When your car is collected, our scrap partner will perform a quick inspection to make sure it was accurately described when we provided a quote – but as long as it was, the price we’ve offered is the price you’ll be paid.
