Collect and scrap my car
It couldn’t be easier to have your car collected for free. Simply head to our online quotes page, enter a few details about your vehicle and let us know your postcode (or the postcode of where your vehicle is parked). You then confirm your collection time, and we do the rest. However, you will need to have some paperwork ready when our recovery team arrives. Your personal ID, the keys to your vehicle, and your logbook will all need to be shown to our collection team. Don’t panic if you are missing one or all of these. Simply let us know beforehand. If you’ve lost your paperwork, we can arrange for replacement documents from the DVLA, and a lack of keys simply means that our recovery team will need to bring the right tools. Don’t forget that we also do all of your paperwork for you too, so not only are you getting free scrap car collection, you also get to avoid all of that tedious paperwork! Get your quote, choose your time, and we’ll be there.
We only partner with yards that are approved Authorised Treatment Facilities. That’s good news for your bank balance because selling a car for scrap to an ATF means that you will get more than just the value of the scrap metal. An ATF will always prioritise recycling, so if there are plenty of parts to sell on to other drivers, then your car will sell for more. So not only are you getting free scrap car collection, but you’re also getting more value from your old car. You also get that additional peace of mind of knowing that your old vehicle is going to be disposed of safely and responsibly, minimising harm to the environment and helping to improve the lives of everyone that lives in your community.

The benefits of free scrap car collection
Here are some of the major benefits of having free scrap car pickup near me, many of which you might not have considered. Don’t settle for anything less than completely free scrap vehicle pickup, and take advantage of these amazing benefits.
Selling an old car privately is almost always a major cause of stress. It’s not a fast process either! First, you have to take photos of your car, upload those pictures to Facebook Marketplaces, post in the dedicated motoring press, or on selling sites like eBay or Craigslist. Then, it’s a matter of answering the same questions over and over again until you finally have one or two potential buyers. It’s still not over, though, because then you have to make yourself available for when they want to view the car, often meaning a day of work missed. If those potential buyers do show up, then you’ve got time wasters or aggressive hagglers to deal with. If you’re sick of dealing with tyre-kickers and time-wasters, then it’s good to know that you have an easy alternative. Not only do we pick up scrap cars for cash, but we also do it completely free and at a time that best suits you. No more hanging about all day for a buyer who might not show up, and no last-minute haggling over the price, just get your quote, book your collection time, and have the stress-free car scrappage collection that will feel like a breath of fresh air.
No risk to you
If you are involved in a collision that’s left your car unsafe to drive, then it’s always good to know that you have selling options. Seriously damaged cars might not be worth selling privately, but when it comes to scrap metal prices, that old non-runner might be worth more than you think. Even if your car has been involved in a very serious collision and it no longer even starts, don’t panic. Not only will you still get paid for that old car, free car scrappage collection means that you don’t have to worry about getting that non-runner to our yards. Likewise, if your car has recently failed its latest MOT, you know that you’re not going to be able to ask for a high price if you sell it privately. The good news is that even cars without an MOT can be bought quickly and collected for free. When cars don’t have a valid MOT, you aren’t allowed to drive them on the roads, and doing so means getting a potential fine or even a visit to your local courtrooms. When we pick up scrap cars for cash and don’t charge you a penny, you get to make some cash without running the risk of driving an unsafe and illegal car on the roads.
It won’t cost you a penny
The best thing about free scrap car pickup near me is just that: it’s 100% free. There are a lot of amateur scrap yards in the UK, and it’s all too common to see them charge local drivers for scrap vehicle pickup services. There are even yards that will tell you that they pick up scrap cars for cash but then add some sneaky charges when it comes to paying you. That means you end up with less money in your bank account. Sadly, too many UK motorists fall for these tricks because they think it’s just the way things work in the scrap metal trade. However, modern scrap yards have tighter restrictions to follow these days, and you should not accept having to pay for scrap vehicle pickup. With a Scrapi.com yard, you know that the price that you get from our instant quote calculator is the amount that you will get paid. There will never be any last-minute charges added on, and we simply don’t do haggling. Get your quote, enjoy free scrap car pickup near me, and get paid immediately.
Wherever you are
No matter where you are in the UK, we have partnered with the scrap yards near you that have the required level of training and experience to be on our extensive and professional network. We only partner with scrap yards that are Authorised Treatment Facilities, and that’s great news when it comes to getting your quote. However, we know that not everyone lives in a large city or town, and there are some drivers in the UK that live far away from even the nearest scrap yard. If your household is located in the middle of the countryside, far away from the bright lights of your nearest city, don’t think that you won’t be able to qualify for free scrap vehicle pickup. It may take a little longer to get our recovery vehicle to you, but thanks to our national coverage, we will be able to get to you.
We help customers scrap their car near them
Our years of experience combined with our dedicated training means that we have been helping customers like you scrap their cars for a lot longer than you might have thought.
Quick collection anywhere in the UK
We know how stressful it can be to own a car that you no longer want. Whether it’s due to general wear and tear, it’s failed its last MOT, or you simply don’t use it anymore because public transport is perfectly fine, don’t keep hold of an old vehicle for no reason. Even cars that you aren’t using still cost money to own, and even if you don’t have to keep filling it up with petrol, you still have to pay tax and insurance (unless you declare it SORN, which comes with its own array of issues!).
One of the reasons why drivers keep their cars for too long is because the sales process can be so time-consuming and stressful. From dealing with the car-buying British public to waiting in all day for a buyer who doesn’t even bother showing up, it’s rarely quick or convenient to sell an old car, especially if there’s something wrong with it like the lack of a valid MOT. Now that UK motorists can get scrap cars collected for free and get paid too, it’s no surprise that we have seen such a huge increase in the number of customers who are getting scrap vehicle pickup near me and getting paid a lot more than they expected. With no collection fees, you get to sell your car quickly, have your scrap cars collected for cash, and have that cash sent immediately to your bank account. If you don’t have a bank account, then we can simply write you a cheque in the name that you prefer (it’s illegal to pay cash-in-hand for a scrap car). Even if you’ve lost your keys and you can’t find your logbook, we can help.
You won’t have to sit down for hours with a pen and endless reams of paper to sign when you arrange your scrap car pickup for cash. That’s because we will fill out all of your paperwork for you. That includes your Certificate of Destruction, which will help keep the DVLA off your back (this is especially useful if you have declared your car as SORNed). Instead of trying to sell an old car to a dealership, and having to fill out countless forms while getting haggled down by an aggressive sales professional, get your instant quote based on the real value of your car. Don’t forget that scrap cars are generally valued by weight, so those scratches and dents aren’t going to affect the price as much as they will if you sell privately or to a second-hand car dealer. Check out your quote now, and if you’re happy with it, then simply book the most convenient time for us to pick up and scrap your car.
Vans, camper vans, and minibuses
Whatever vehicle it is that you want to have collected and scrapped, we have the solutions. If you have a large van for work or for private use, a camper van that you live in for extended periods, or a fleet of minibuses that have reached their end of life, we have the recovery vehicles and teams that will get the job done. If your business relies on your van, then you need to know that not only can you get it collected for free, but also that you're getting the high prices that you can put towards a new business asset.
If you live in your camper van or want to get rid of a minibus, remember to clear all of your personal belongings out before the recovery team arrives at the pre-booked collection time!
Authorised Treatment Facilities
We only partner with scrap yards that are official Authorised Treatment Facilities. That means you aren’t just getting scrap car pickup for cash, you’re also getting more of that cash! When an ATF recovery vehicle collects your car and pays you what you’re quoted, you also get the satisfaction of knowing that your old car is not going to be sent straight to a landfill site.
Instead, it will first be stripped of any recyclable parts, which are then sold onto other local drivers (helping to keep their running costs down). Then, dangerous materials and liquids in your car will be drained and disposed of responsibly, before what’s left over is crushed and sent to a landfill site. This means that you aren’t just getting the top prices and 100% free scrap vehicle pickup ‘near me’, you’re also getting the knowledge that your old car is not going to be negatively affecting the local environment. We have the best network in the UK and an extensive list of the scrap yards that will pick up cars and pay you for that old vehicle you don’t want or need any longer.
Scrap car collection frequently asked questions
We know how stressful it can be to own a car that you don’t want anymore, and we know all of the horror stories of selling a car privately. Here are some of the most common questions we get asked about scrap vehicle pickup near me.
Where can my car be collected from?
Wherever you are in the UK, we have a scrap yard in our network that can pick up and scrap your car. The only essential is that our recovery vehicles can get access to your vehicle and that it needs to be parked on stable ground. That means your car doesn’t have to be parked outside your home, and it doesn’t even have to be parked on a public road. As long as our recovery vehicles can get to your vehicle, then we have the scrap yards that will pick up cars from anywhere in the country.
Where can’t my vehicle be collected from?
Thanks to our complete nationwide coverage, there are very few places where you can’t get Scrapi.com to pick up and scrap my car. However, if your car is at the scene of an accident, then it can’t be picked up by any scrap yards. You also can’t have your car picked up from a petrol station forecourt. In those instances, you will need to use a roadside recovery service that is unrelated to scrap yard services.
How quickly can you pick up my car and pay me?
Once you have received your instant quote, we go through the list of our partnered scrap yard to determine the best yard for you. This will depend on the type of vehicle, it’s condition, and where it is. Once we have identified the best scrap yards that will pick up cars and have the right recovery vehicle for your car, then we will then look at your stated collection time. Then, you simply have to confirm that collection time on the day that you have chosen, and we do the rest. In many cases, you can have your car collected within hours, but it will all come down to your preferred timings. Most sellers prefer to wait a few days so that they have time to make sure that they have all of the required paperwork, or so that they can get replacement documents as needed.
What happens if I change my mind about the collection day?
We know that life happens and gets in the way of even the best-laid plans. That’s why we let you choose your scrap cars collected for cash date. If you find on the day of planned collection that you are suddenly unavailable, then simply let us know. We will always ask for confirmation of the collection time, so you have the opportunity to reschedule the collection of your old car. A scrap yard that picks up cars and is part of the Scrapi.com network will always make sure that you are happy with the collection time and date.
How long does collection actually take?
This will depend on a few factors. In most cases, it takes around thirty minutes as long as the vehicle is accessible and all of the paperwork is present and correct. Of course, if there are any issues with accessibility, or you realise at the last minute that some of your paperwork is missing, then it can take a little longer. That’s why it’s so important to follow the directions of the scrap yards that will pick up cars for you. The more information that you can give them, the faster the collection time will be.
Do I need to be present at the time of collection?
Of course, if you are unavailable for collection, you don’t necessarily have to reschedule. You don’t need to present at the time of collection, as long as someone else is there with the right paperwork and proof of permission.
How much does scrap car collection cost?
We provide every customer with 100% free scrap yard pick up for cash. Whatever the condition of your car or where it is, we will never charge you a penny for scrap vehicle collection. When you get your quote from Scrapi.com, the price you get quoted is the price that you get paid, and there are never any collection fees from any of the Scrapi.com scrap yards that pick up cars for scrapping.
Do I need my car keys?
It’s very common for drivers to lose the keys for a car that they no longer use as much as they used to. Of course, that poses some immediate challenges! If your keys have been misplaced or lost, then don’t panic. When you’re giving us the information about your car in order to get your quote, simply let us know that the keys are not available. That way, our recovery team will know more about what to expect when they arrive (and will have the right tools too). A lack of keys is not a major issue, so don’t put off selling your old vehicle simply because you can’t access it or start it.
