Car scrapping has never been so easy

When you scrap a car, how can you be certain you’re getting the best price? And how confident are you that you can safely deliver your car? Or complete the appropriate paperwork?

At Car.co.uk, we don’t leave any part of the process to chance. We’ll find you an unbeatable price, we’ll arrange a free collection from any location, and we’ll even help to make sure your V5C paperwork is tied up and returned to the DVLA.

What’s more, each of the scrap yards we work with meet strict government standards relating to the handling of scrap materials. So you can be certain that you’ll get the legal paperwork you need to confirm your car’s been disposed of – and you get to know it’s been done in a way that’s as kind as possible to the environment.

Your scrap car will support our social value scheme

Like a lot of other popular seaside counties around the UK, Dorset has a poor road safety record – with over 5,000 accidents occurring on local roads each year. Unfortunately, this something that’s felt by local residents – with local authority tax bills estimated to be £116 higher due to accidents in the region.

At Car.co.uk, we make sure that cars damaged in accidents like these give something back to local communities. If you scrap your vehicle using our service, a portion of the profit it helps us to generate in the future will be used to support charities and good causes which help local people around the UK.

Making the motor industry work for local communities

How will your car help us to continue our support of UK charities and good causes?

When you recycle your old or damaged vehicle by selling with Car.co.uk, you won't just get the best scrap car prices in Dorset – you also get to know that a portion of our profits from each car we scrap will be used to grow incredible social value projects across the country.

The projects we support include:

  • Food banks and school breakfast clubs
  • Assisted living provisions for vulnerable people

As well as providing much-needed support for the people who directly access these initiatives, the benefits are felt much more widely in local communities – often easing the pressure on taxpayer-funded services.

Frequently asked questions

Most people have questions about scrapping their car – so we’ve covered a few of our customer’s most common queries here.

No, payment will be issued promptly after collection. We do this to ensure each vehicle is seen before payment – meaning our scrap collection partner can confirm that the quote was issued based on the true specification and condition of the car.

Yes, that should be fine. When you accept your quote, you’ll be able to see a range of available collection slots. Just choose the one that fits around your day.

Absolutely. You’re under no obligation to sell your car to us. If you do need to cancel, we just ask that you give as much notice as possible, as some of our collection partners travel a long way to collect cars.

Yes. In actual fact, the Certificate of Destruction (COD) will be issued by the DVLA and sent to the facility that’s handling your car, but when it’s received, they will send a copy on to you.

Of course. For V5C forms issued before April 2019, you’ll simply need to fill out section 9. For documents created after this date, the process is the same – but it’s section 4 you’ll need to complete. Don’t worry if you’re not sure though; our collection driver will be happy to assist.

Yes they are. Since the DVLA vehicle destruction process can only be carried out by scrap yards that meet strict ‘Authorised Treatment Facility’ (ATF) guidelines, we also only work with ATF accredited dismantlers – to ensure the best service and best prices for our customers.
