After you complete the scrap car form we contact you and arrange a suitable time for collection. We will call you on the day of collection to let you know our driver is on the way.
When we call to arrange collection we let you know our payment terms. We pay you by bank transfer or cheque. The payment normally takes from 2 to 24hrs. If your vehicle is collected Friday afternoon, the payment may not arrive in your account until Monday morning. We scrap hundreds of cars so please allow us 24hrs to make bank transfers.
Unfortunately the law does not allow us to pay cash for scrap.
On some occasions your payment may not be credited until Monday morning.
Your car is recycled.
If your car is still in a roadworthy condition, we may try and find a buyer for it. If the car is unsuitable to be reused, we remove any car parts and sell those on. We then recycle the rest of the car in our authorised treatment facility and turn it into scrap metal.
You must tell us if you are scrapping the vehicle as part of a Scrappage Scheme.
