Cash For Your Old Car, Van Or Bike
If you are looking to dispose of your vehicle, you can complete one simple form and have breaker yards contact you, either with a cash offer, or will at least get some sort of free collection to scrap your car.
Sell To Registered Businesses
We only deal with breaker yards or companies that deal with salvage cars, vans and bikes, so you will not find any private buyers within our system, only registered businesses. These professionals are interested in buying your old car in order to recycle the parts or the scrap metals contained within, depending on the age, condition and the demand for that particular model. "Sell Your Old Car" couldn't be easier to use, as in most cases will collect it and take it away free too.

Ensuring Everything Remains Legal
As required in their legal responsibility, they must ensure that the correct DVLA documentation is completed, including the V5C and must either be, or use an ATF treatment centre to deal with the scrap components that have not been resold, including plastics, toxic's, batteries and fluids. However at the time of sale, the only paperwork, you will need to deal with with involve the change of car ownership V5 documentation and receipts, removing the responsibility from you to the new owner.
Avoid Fines For An Un-taxed Or Un-roadworthy Vehicle
It is estimated that around 3 million vehicles are taken off the UK roads each year, either because they have come to the end of their natural life or have been involved in some sort of accident. But there is another category where cars may find themselves scrapped sometimes against their owners will. The UK law now states every vehicle should have purchased valid road tax certificate to be on a public road or must be "SWORN" and on private property if not. If this is not adhered to, there is a real possibility that the police will take ownership of that car and if the relevant fine plus road tax not paid within a specific time, that vehicle may be scrapped without the owner receiving any cash or compensation.
Free Collection Is Part Of The Deal
Another consideration is the cost to transport or deliver your car to a suitable buyer. Can you do this legally? Can the vehicle be driven? How much does it cost on a trailer or flat bed? The buyer will collect your vehicle free of charge as part of the deal, it will be their responsibility to do this safely and legally.
How Many Scrap Yard Fires DO We Need
Most yards empty fuel from their cars as soon as they arrive, firstly because often it can b reused if done correctly, but of course any sparks with fuel and we are talking explosions not fire. But there are many other fluids within a vehicle that can be set alight, from the oil in the engine to fluids in hydraulics etc

Non Insured Vehicles Can Now Be Scrapped
This law has now been extended to insurance, so any vehicle that is not declared as "off the road" may also be scrapped by the police if payment is not received within a certain time frame. If a car is not taxed or insured, in theory it would be very difficult to sell privately, as it may not be legal to test drive, plus the new owner may be associated with the fines of the previous car owner. In order to avoid this situation, many choose to get cash for their old car using this disposal scrappage system, where dismantler agents will also collect the car for free and transfer ownership.
