Turning scrap cars into social value

Roads in Devon are considered some of the most dangerous anywhere in the UK – with serious accident numbers increasing by 20% in recent years, despite road safety initiatives designed to bring them down.

Torquay roads follow this overall regional safety picture – with nearly 700 accidents having occurred on the roads in and around Torquay in the last 5 years. As a result, the area sees a higher-than-average number of cars scrapped because of accident damage.

At Car.co.uk we make cars written off in accidents like these provide value to local communities. When you choose our service to help you scrap your car, you’re helping us to continue our social value programmes – providing funding to some of the UK’s favourite charities.

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 Torquay – 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 charities and promoting positive change

Frequently asked questions

We know that you probably won’t scrap a car very often – so it’s normal to have queries. We’ve covered some of the most common questions our customers have here.

You’ll need to complete section 9 of the V5C log book document. When complete, you should send this part of the paperwork back to the DVLA – allowing them to update their vehicle ownership records. It’s your legal responsibility to do this – but the collection driver who comes to pick up your car will assist you with its completion.

Yes, we do. Since all of our scrap partners meet the accreditation needed to request a Certificate of Destruction from the DVLA, they will forward a copy to you as soon as it’s received.

ATF stands for Authorised Treatment Facility. An authorised facility is a scrap yard that follows government guidelines to ensure all vehicles go through a strict depollution process before parts are disposed of or recycled.

Yes, we can. The collection partners who support us with scrap car removal in Torquay are equipped to recover cars without keys. It’s a good idea to mention the keys are missing when your collection partner calls to confirm your collection time. That way they know what to expect when they arrive.

If you’ve accepted a quote from us to buy your scrap car in Torquay but now want to change your mind, it’s vital that you let us know as soon as you can. If you don’t, you may find you’re charged for any wasted journey our collection partner makes.

The price we’ll offer when we provide a quote to scrap your car in Torquay is based around its weight, and any elements we can recover for recycling purposes. As such, any upgrades or add-ons won’t improve the quote you’re offered.
