What do we offer people who are looking for car scrap yards in Wakefield?

We strive to make scrapping your car simple

At Car.co.uk, customers are our number one priority. Our outstanding level of service begins with the quotes we provide. We can offer the best scrap car prices in Wakefield because of our large network of scrap partners around the city. For you, this means excellent prices - whatever the condition of your vehicle.

We work hard to make sure scrapping your car is straightforward and simple. We realise you probably don't scrap vehicles very often - so we'll help with every step, from support with your official paperwork; through to making sure you receive prompt payment.

For many people, delivering your car to a scrap yard in the Wakefield area is difficult - or, in some cases, impossible. Whether your car is perfectly roadworthy or badly accident damaged, we'll collect it completely free of charge, from any Wakefield location.

We're working for local communities

Wakefield roads have experienced nearly 3,000 road traffic accidents over the past 5 years. As a result, the numbers of cars written-off and scrapped around the city are some of the highest in Yorkshire. Car.co.uk uses cars like these to support local charities.

While it's easy to imagine that accident damaged cars are simply crushed - there's far more to scrapping cars than may first meet the eye. From work opportunities in vehicle recycling facilities - to the on-going creation of charity finances through recycling and salvage; scrapping your car with our service means we can help the people who need it the most.

If you're planning to scrap your car for cash in Wakefield, we're certain we'll get you a better price. When we do, some of the UK's favourite charities get a great deal too.

Using scrap cars to create real social value around the UK

An unbeatable deal for your scrap car can also be life-changing for vulnerable people around the country

When we help you to find the best scrap car prices from vehicle recyclers in the Wakefield area, our unique way of working means we're also providing an incredible service for a number of charities and good causes, both in the UK and abroad.

The social value projects we support include:

  • Supported living schemes for people who may otherwise face homelessness
  • Food redistribution networks that ensure no good food goes to waste
  • HMP Academies and training programmes designed to reduce reoffending

While the charity work provides an obvious benefit for the people who engage with it – a wider, overall effect is felt by communities when these projects ease the strain on the police, the courts, social housing resources, and the benefits system.

Frequently asked questions

We know scrapping a car isn’t something you’ll do very often – so we’ve put together some of our most commonly asked questions for you to read through.

Yes. The Wakefield scrap car dealers we work with have the equipment needed to collect cars with missing wheels.

As the current registered keeper, it’s your responsibility to fill out section 9 of the V5C log book. This slip should be returned to the DVLA, confirming you are no longer responsible for the vehicle. Don’t worry if you’re not 100% sure about what to do or which details to complete; the person who collects your car will be happy to help.

Yes, no problem. After accepting our quote, you’ll be able to select a time that’s exactly right for you. We’ll pass your number to our scrap collection partner too – so they can let you know they’re on their way.

That’s no problem. Each of the scrap dealers we work alongside have the equipment and experience needed to move a car that doesn’t come supplied with keys.

As long as your car isn’t being driven or kept on a public road, then you may be able to apply for a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN). To apply for a SORN, you should contact the DVLA, either by post – or instantly, through their online service.

If you change your mind about the quote we’ve provided to scrap your car in Wakefield, it’s important you let us know as soon as you can. If you do not tell us and a recovery partner attempts pickup, they may charge you for any time that’s wasted.
