Support for local communities

Bournemouth and the wider Dorset area has more cars per adult than almost anywhere else in the UK – with over 90% of homes having at least one car. With such a large number of vehicles on the road, it’s probably unsurprising to discover the area also struggles with a poor road safety record – with recent years seeing one serious accident almost every day.

At Car.co.uk we help to make the cars written off in accidents like these return some value to local communities. The car recycling work we do helps to support a number of UK charities; who provide residential programs, HMP academies, and food redistribution networks locally and nationally. Our investment in social projects means local people benefit when you scrap your car with us.

Using scrap cars to support vulnerable people

A great deal for your scrap car in Bournemouth also creates life-changing charity donations.

At Car.co.uk, we're proud to support a large number of charities and good causes in the UK and abroad – and your scrap car quote will help us to continue these important contributions.

As well as being positive for the environment, recycling your old or damaged car with Car.co.uk means we can:

  • Fund HMP training academies
  • Support assisted living schemes
  • Help to grow food redistribution networks

Social value projects like these don't just positively impact the people who access them – their effect can be felt much more widely – not least by reducing the strain on the emergency services, local healthcare provisions, and wider social care services – all of which are often close to breaking point.

Directly helping charitable causes by scrapping your car

Scrapping your car might not feel like something that could make a life-saving change to a person's life – or food for a child who might otherwise go to bed hungry – but when you do it with Car.co.uk, this is exactly the kind of work you're helping to deliver.

Frequently asked questions

Scrapping a car isn’t something many people do very often – so it’s perfectly normal to have some questions. We’ve covered some of the most common ones here – but you’re welcome to browse our full range of FAQs or use our instant messenger service if you’d like any further information.

ELV is short for End of Life Vehicle. ELV describes any motor vehicle that can no longer be used or economically repaired, as a result of wear and tear or damage. End of life vehicles are dismantled, depolluted and recycled at authorised treatment facilities.

No. The partners we work with that will buy your scrap car in Bournemouth must ensure that the car is present and was described accurately during the quote. Payments will be made promptly after collection and in accordance with the scrap car network’s payment terms.

Yes, we will. After accepting your quote, you’ll be able to select a time and a date that’s perfect for you. The collection partners who support us with scrap cars removal in Bournemouth will always aim to call and confirm this time.

No problem. A Certificate of Destruction (COD) is issued by the DVLA when the Authorised Treatment Facility that buys your scrap car in Bournemouth starts the official scrapping process. They’ll make sure a copy is forwarded to you when it arrives with them.

When your car is collected, both you and the collector will need to complete section 9 of the V5c, which you must then send to the DVLA. This confirms that you are selling or transferring your vehicle to a motor trader, insurer or dismantler. It is the seller’s responsibility to do this, but the collection partner recovering your car will always assist and check the paperwork for you.

If you have changed your mind after accepting a quote to scrap your car, it’s important you let us know as soon as possible. If you do not tell us and a recovery partner arrives to collect your car, they may charge you for the wasted journey.
