We support good causes in the North of England

The last 5 years have seen around 450 accidents on Pontefract roads – almost exactly the same number that was recorded in the 5-year period which preceded it. This lack of road safety improvement is representative of West Yorkshire as a whole – with the wider area on track to miss international targets that relate to reducing serious accident numbers on the region’s roads.

Although car accidents are never a good thing, Car.co.uk can use part of the profits generated from written-off cars to channel money back into local good causes. If you’re looking for a quote to scrap your car today in Pontefract, choosing our simple service means you get a great price – and we can continue to support life-changing charities around Yorkshire.

Using scrap cars to support vulnerable people

A great deal for your scrap car in Pontefract 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.

Frequently asked questions

Do you have questions about scrapping your car? We’ve covered some of the answers to our most frequently asked queries here.

No, that’s okay. We realise people’s circumstances sometimes change – so, if this is the case, we just ask that you give us as much notice as possible; that way, we can cancel our collection without anyone being charged for a wasted journey.

Yes, they are. An ‘ATF’ or ‘Authorised Treatment Facility’ is the name given to a scrap yard that has proved it works within the rules and regulations surrounding the handling of scrap materials. It’s important to scrap your car at an ATF – as these are the only businesses who can officially start the DVLA destruction process.

Yes, we can. Since all of Car.co.uk’s partner scrap yards meet with ‘Authorised Treatment Facility’ requirements, they can begin the official destruction process with the DVLA. When this begins, the DVLA will issue a COD (Certificate of Destruction), and your ATF will arrange for a copy to be sent to you.

No, if you want to keep your private registration, you can. To do so, you’ll need to arrange to have the number plate officially removed from your car. The quickest way to do this is using the DVLA’s online service. When complete, the registration will be removed from the car instantly. If you’d rather complete the process through the post, you can request the forms from the website too. It’s important that you make sure the whole process is complete before the car is removed.

Yes. ‘ELV’ is short for ‘End of Life Vehicle’ – the official term used to describe a car that is no longer suitable for use on UK roads. Generally, vehicles become ELVs due to general wear and tear, or damage that’s been incurred in an accident.

Of course. We realise that people’s lives are generally busy – so, when you request a quote and arrange delivery using our website, you’ll be able to select a time slot that’s exactly right for you.
