Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I receive money for scrapping my car?
Yes we pay out for scrap cars. We can pay you either with a credit transfer to a bank account, or a cheque can be written out.
What ID do I need to bring with me as a proof of identity to receive payment?
A valid form of photographic ID must be presented e.g. driving licence or passport is acceptable. If a passport is presented then it must be with a utility bill. A passport does not show the holder’s address.
Can I still scrap my car if I do not have the V5?
Yes we can still scrap your car if the V5 is not presented. We can provide a simple form to be completed instead of the V5.
Can I obtain a certificate of destruction (COD) when scrapping my car?
We can provide a certificate of destruction if requested.
My scrap car is not road worthy, can it be collected?
We can provide a collection service for you, for details please speak to one of our team to discuss your requirements.
What happens to the car once we have collected it?
A receipt is issued, the DVLA paperwork is completed and the car is then drained of any fluids before being processed; ensuring environmental and legal compliance.
Is the log book proof of ownership for my scrap car?
No, the log book is not proof of ownership. If you have misplaced the V5 then we can supply a form to be completed instead.
