We support charity projects in the North of England

Road traffic accidents have a significant impact on West Yorkshire as a whole. Annually, 15,000 collisions happen in the region. Fortunately, only a tiny fraction of those accidents happen on Castleford’s road – often less than 100 each year. As a result, the majority of the vehicles that are scrapped in Castleford and the surrounding villages come as a result of wear and tear or MOT failure.

Whatever has brought your vehicle to the end of its useful life, when you use Car.co.uk to scrap your car in Castleford, we’re able to direct vital funds into community charities; helping to provide supported living provisions for vulnerable people, food banks for local communities, and crime reduction programmes that ease the strain on taxpayer-funded services.

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 Castleford – 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

We know scrapping a car isn’t something most people regularly do. Therefore, we’ve tried to answer some of our most frequently asked questions here. If you have a question that’s not shown here, there’s a full list on our FAQs page.

The value of your scrap car will be based around how much it weighs – and, since different models have different engines, components, trim levels – and so on, the price will vary. Don’t worry though, we’ll do our very best to get a price from a specialist scrap provider – and they often bid more for specific makes and models.

You’re required to complete section 9 of the V5C and return it to the DVLA when your car is scrapped. Don’t worry if you’re not 100% certain about what needs completing though – our collection driver will talk you through it and assist if needed.

An ATF is an ‘Authorised Scrap Yard’ – the name that’s given to a dismantler that has proved it follows the strict law around how scrap cars and materials are handled. Only ATFs can officially scrap a car – but, since all the car scrap yards we work with in the Castleford area meet this standard, we can be certain your car will be handled properly and that you’ll receive the correct paperwork and service.

Don’t worry if you’ve misplaced your keys. Many scrap cars that we collect cannot be moved – so our partners use specialist recovery vehicles to pick them up.

Yes. To do so, you should apply for a number plate retention through the DVLA. This retention service allows you to transfer your registration to another car at a later date and can be done online or through the post. It’s important to make sure this process is complete before the car is recovered by a scrap yard.

Yes. The law surrounding scrap metal collection does say that someone over the age of 18 must be with a vehicle that’s collected – but it doesn’t have to be the owner or registered keeper. You’ll need to make sure that your nominated person has a proof of ID with them to show our driver – and, if you can’t provide the log book for the vehicle, they’ll also need to show a recent proof of address.
