Car Scrappage through Authorised Treatment Facilities
In the UK car scrappage needs to be done legally through an ATF or Authorised Treatments Facility/Scrapyard. These facilities are licensed by the Environment Agency ensuring that your car is disposed of in a way that is safer for the environment with many parts recycled.
Once a car has been successfully delivered and treated, our facilities are able to produce a legally binding Certificate of Destruction which can be used to confirm to the DVLA that a car has been scrapped in an acceptable manner.
What Documents Do I Need to Scrap My Car?
It’s ideal if you have your V5C to scrap your car; this means we can provide you with the relevant section 9 document from this filled in to then present on to the DVLA to confirm legal scrappage.
If however, you don’t have your V5 we can offer a vehicle surrender form which can instead be completed.
