Although it’s not uncommon for vehicles to clock over 150,000 miles these days, there will eventually come a time when they reach the end of the proverbial road and will need to be disposed of. This is usually followed by the big question:


With Scrap Car Compare, it couldn’t be any easier. Our national network of DVLA-approved Authorised Treatment Facilities means that you can scrap a car easily and legally. Unfortunately due to the SCRAP METAL DEALERS ACT 2013 paying in cash is no longer allowed which means trusted and reputable scrappage networks such as ourselves will only offer a bank transfer direct to your bank account or a cheque payment as alternative payment methods. 

Our dealers can forward the necessary paperwork to the DVLA as soon as any scrap cars have been bought to prove they have been processed in a legal and environmentally friendly manner. This includes the issuing of a Certificate of Destruction which acts as legally binding confirmation that you have disposed of your scrap vehicle appropriately.

If a vehicle has been damaged beyond repair or can no longer serve as a reliable form of transport then it’s essential to either register the car with a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) or continue paying Road Tax until it is disposed of.

Once a car has been treated and you have received your payment, the DVLA will be informed that the car has been scrapped meaning you can leave the paperwork to us. We will always advise you of any additional information that you need to supply when scrapping a car for cash.


Once you have decided to sell your scrap car for cash, the first step is to find the most competitive rate available from one of the UK’s trusted ATFs.

Simply fill out our online form with your postcode and by entering your registration number, and then sit back and relax whilst we search for the most competitive car scrapping services available. You will then receive a FIXED PRICE OFFER to scrap your car for cash and, if you choose to accept the offer, it’s then just a case of arranging free collection of your end of life vehicle.

Our system utilises your vehicle registration details to determine what your car is worth, finding the make, model and age of your car. Our prices are based upon weight, rather than condition which means even if your car is damaged, faulty or not running, this doesn’t impact the valuation you receive. 

When you choose to scrap your unwanted vehicle you understandably want to ensure you get the best offer. We offer some of the most competitive Scrap Car Prices in the UK due to our extensive network of ATFs. By working in tandem with these approved scrap yards and their highly experienced mechanics, we can maximise the value of every usable part of your unwanted vehicle, meaning we pass this extra value back to our customers so you receive the best possible price for your scrap.


Many people are put off swapping their scrap car for cash due to the hassle involved in transporting them to ATFs, but what most people don’t realise is that you can have your scrap car collected free of charge!

As a nationally recognised scrap car comparison network, we have facilities stationed throughout the UK and will arrange to collect your vehicle with the minimum of interruption to your daily routine, ensuring that payments are made promptly and in accordance with UK law.
