What do I need when scrapping my vehicle?

All we need on collection is : Your V5 (log book), Vehicle keys, Locking wheel nut (should you have one), and to see 1 form of I.D. (To complete your vehicle sales receipt and other relevant paperwork).

How do you value my vehicle?

We value all vehicles on their kerb weight in KG and pay accordingly. Therefore, the heavier or bigger your vehicle is, the more money you will receive.

We are currently paying excellent prices on petrol vehicles due to these containing certain different metal grades.

How do I get paid?

Due to new legislation, we can no longer pay cash for scrap vehicles, So it’s quick and easy – we now offer either bank transfer or cheque on collection. It’s your choice.

What if I have lost my V5 (logbook) or keys?

Don’t worry, we only need either your V5 document (also known as the log book) or your keys in order to take your vehicle away; we just need to be told before collection so we can process your vehicle accordingly.

No V5? We need you to sign a vehicle sales receipt and we process your vehicle using the chassis number on the vehicle, not the V5.

No Keys? This is more tricky as we have to bring tools along with us to gain access to the car should it be locked and to help steering the vehicle onto the transporter.

Please remove all personal belongings from the vehicle. For vans, please make sure the back is free of all waste etc.
