When we call to arrange collection we let you know our payment terms. We pay you by bank transfer or cheque. Payment is normally made within 24 business hours. If your vehicle is collected Friday afternoon, the payment may not arrive in your account until Monday. We scrap hundreds of cars so please allow us 24 business hours 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.
