Want your vehicle taking away for free or would you like to get cash for your MOT failure, old end of life vehicle (ELV) or non runner? Well here at "Scrap Car" we can help. Our service connects you with agents who will collect and dispose of your old vehicle such as light commercial vans, bikes and salvage projects.
Obviously the amount you can receive will depend on the vehicle concerned or salvage project you are disposing and it's true value including any recyclable parts still on the vehicle and scrap metal prices, but also taking into account the expense to collect and dispose. However on saying this, most people should expect to receive some form of payment, which is negotiable with the relevant breakers and scrap yards who contact you and by law needs to be paid into your bank account. You have nothing to lose by filling in one simple form. Our scrappage agents are in areas from London to Scotland so their is a good chance of a quote.
We have an established network of buyers and agents of inoperative vehicles and salvage for a number of uses and reprocessing. The largest single demand is by breaker yards and dismantlers who have valid environmental and End of Life Vehicle (ELV) certificates, issued to them by the local authority to dispose of them legally. Approval is gained only after their yard has been inspected and certified by the Environmental Agency and Local Council. Other older vehicle specialists recycle the cars investing in their restoration or using them for other purposes such as stock racing etc. Once your vehicle is picked up, you will not have to worry about disposal, road tax or insurance as ownership is transfered.
Before or agent members arranges to pick up your vehicle, you will be contacted by one of our companies. Collection will be available at your convenience and to suit your needs, and will call to arrange a time and place which you can choose best suits you.
Most buyers are busy people and will give you a quotation over the phone based on the information you give them, so be sure to describe your car, van or bike as accurately as possible, without any exaggeration, but be sure to include the positives. Key information such as having a long MOT, or good service history can add a few pounds to the quote offered. If the vehicle is not as described when the dealer comes to buy, he may choose to lower the quote or not buy at all. Remember the cost to collect can be considerate to the company.
