To Scrap Your Car,
Complete This Form.
1. I do not have the scrap cars keys – are you still able to collect?
This instance is not a problem just so long as we have satisfactory evidence that the scrap car belongs to you and that we have your permission to gain entry to the scrap car. Our drivers are experienced and equipped to deal with this kind of problem.
2. My scrap car has been stood and unused for some time and will not start/move?
This instance is not an issue at all, in fact a high percentage of cars / vehicles collected by us have long since been roadworthy, please be assured it makes no difference whether the scrap car has been stood for years, months or weeks – we shall safely uplift it for you and be able to scrap it.

In an ideal world yes – but we fully appreciate that small parts may have been removed by you, all that we ask is please tell us the full extent of the scrap car via the extra notes section within our online scrap request instruction form.
4. How & when should I notify the DVLA?
As soon as we remove your scrap car. Please retain section 9 of the V5, complete and send to the DVLA. Our agent will complete a Certificate of Destruction with the DVLA. Receiving both will speed up the process at the DVLA.
