We accept any makes and models including MOT failures, old cars, end-of-life vehicles (ELVs), non-runners & scrap cars. And will arrange all the paperwork and notify the DVLA on your behalf. We will also issue you with a legally binding certificate of destruction.

Some scrap cars facts

  • You can be fined £1,000 if the DVLA is not correctly informed about your car being scrapped.
  • Recycled steel can make up as much as 25% of a new car.
  • As of 2015, EU directives state that at 85% of an end of life vehicle by average weight must be re-used or recycled and 95% must be re-used or recovered.
  • Of the approx. 5.3 million ELVs documented in the EU in 2017, just under 1.4 million were recorded in the UK.
  • Based on the latest figures, the only country in Europe other than the UK to record more than 1 million ELVs was France.
  • In the region of 390,000 cars are written off each year. Some of these legally have to be destroyed entirely for safety reasons, but others can provide a wealth of salvageable used parts.
  • In 2017, the UK recovered and re-used 94.1% of the waste generated by end of life vehicles.
  • Up to 75% of your scrap car is made of steel, with the remaining 25% covering all of the oils and fluids, plastics, rubber tyres and other materials.
  • Once any re-usable parts have been stripped from the vehicle and all hazardous substances have been removed, cars are generally crushed before then being shredded and the subsequent bits sorted by material.
  • There are over 1,600 authorised treatment facilities in the UK.
