The types of cars we scrap

Many motorists keep their old cars for longer because they don’t think they’re worth anything, but it’s never been easier to sell a car for scrap.

Whatever your reasons for deciding to sell a car for scrap, we can help

Across the country, we are helping drivers get rid of those old cars that they no longer want or need. Often, motorists think that they can’t sell their cars for some reason. For example, there’s a common misconception that you can’t sell a car for scrap if it’s been seriously damaged in a collision, or when it’s failed its MOT. The good news is that we not only buy those cars, we also pay the top prices for them too. 

You can get a quote for cars of all kinds

With, even if your car has been SORNed, or you’ve lost the keys and can’t get into your car anymore, there are always scrap cars wanted for cash. If you think that there’s a reason why you can’t scrap your car for cash, try our instant quote calculator to find out just how much your old vehicle is really worth. If you’re happy with the quote, then simply book your collection time. Scrap vehicles, even accident damaged cars, are often worth far more than their owners realise. 

From non running cars to stolen recovered cars, when it comes to buying old cars or a scrap car without V5, we’ve got the answers and the prices that you need. 

Even cars with major damage or junk cars that don’t even start anymore are worth more than you might have thought. MOT failure cars and vans can be a hassle to try and sell privately, and you’ll rarely get the worth of those vehicles. Now, it’s easier than ever to scrap my van or car no matter its age or condition. So if you’ve got a flood damaged car parked outside your home, or you simply don’t use that old car as much as your used to, it’s good to know that even non running cars and cars with major damage can be sold and collected by the professional and local scrap yards that make up the network.

Don’t waste time trying to sell an old or damaged car privately

Not only is this stressful and inconvenient (how many buyers don’t even bother showing up?), but you rarely get the real value of your car. Now that you can get the top prices even when you scrap a car without V5, it’s simply the smart option to use a local partner.

How can you scrap your car for cash?

There have been some serious changes to the way that scrap yards can operate, and that’s good news for those motorists that want to make some serious money from their old cars.

Scrap Car Title

When it's so easy to search "sell my car for scrap" and make back some money, there are fewer reasons than ever to keep on using your old car or van. This is especially true if you are finding local public transport more preferable or you have experienced an unexpected MOT failure. 

It's very easy to get into a routine, and when it comes to the morning commute to work, the school run, or even the weekly shop, you don't have to resign yourself to driving that old car. If you need something new to drive, then getting cash for scrap cars is quick, easy, and convenient. With so many people taking a fresh look at their expenses and their spending, it's no wonder that so many drivers are so delighted to hear that they can not only have their cars collected for free but that they'll get paid immediately too.

From drivers who aren't using their cars as much as anymore to motorists who simply want to upgrade to a better, more fuel-efficient car, it's good to know that you can always scrap your car for cash with With your cash sent immediately to your bank, you can then use that money to either invest in a newer, easier to maintain vehicle, or stick to catching the bus, train, or tube and get a lot more miles for your money. Don't keep on spending money maintaining an old car that's on its last miles when it's so easy to make some money instead.

The modern scrap yard is very different from how it used to be. The Scrap Metal Dealers Act of 2013 meant some big changes to the scrap industry, and there are still amateur yards operating that ignore both the law and the Scrap Metal Dealers Act. One of the key changes to the industry is that to make it harder for car thieves to sell stolen cars, you can no longer be paid cash-in-hand for your old car. However, thanks to our fast payment system, you can get cash for scrap cars sent straight to your bank account. Depending on who you bank with, your payment can be sitting there waiting to be spent within hours. 

If you contact a scrap yard that offers to pay you cash in hand, then that's a red flag. Not only are they breaking the law, but they'll also very often try to haggle at the last minute, or add in some additional, mysterious charges. If you want to scrap your car for cash, only use those yards that are Authorised Treatment Facilities and who will pay you via bank transfer. Get your money faster when you sell my car for scrap, and stay on the right side of the law while you're getting the top prices for that old motor.

Motorists spend a lot of money on their vehicles, and from running costs and filling up with fuel, it sometimes feels like having a car is nothing more than a quick way to drain your bank account! That's why so many drivers are no longer keeping hold of those old cars that are costing too much to maintain or which are emptying bank balances every time they pull into a petrol station.
