Scrap Car Valuation

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:

How can I swap my scrap car for cash?

Well, the good news is that with ScrapCarCompare.co.uk, it couldn’t be any easier. Our national network of DVLA-approved Authorised Treatment Facilities means that you can scrap a car, however unfortunately due to the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 paying in cash is now illegal which only leaves a bank transfer or a cheque payment as alternative payment methods. Our reputable dealers are able to forward the necessary paperwork to the DVLA as soon as any scrap cars bought and 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.

Once you have decided to scrap your 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 your postcode and vehicle registration number on our easy to use, no obligation quotation form, and then sit back and relax whilst we search 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.

What do I need to be aware of when scrapping a car for cash?

There are many UK-based companies offering cash for scrap cars, but did you know that fines of up to £5,000 can be issued by the government if this isn’t done in a legally acceptable manner? We work tirelessly with our UK-based scrap yards to ensure that all vehicle treatments are carried out in line with government environmental guidelines whilst keeping our service professional and efficient at all times.

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.

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.
