How we differ from a scrap car dealer

You may be considering taking your car to a local scrap yard if it has been involved in an accident, where the cost of repairs outweigh the value of the car, or the car has failed an MOT and it’s too costly to make the car roadworthy. In this case, your car will be taken off the road to be recycled, with the price being determined by the amount of salvageable metal.

Although you may think your car is ready to be scrapped, you’d be surprised how many vehicles get back on the road with a bit of TLC. We will still buy your car even if you think it is ready for the scrap yard, offering you a more convenient process. After we have bought your vehicle, it will be sold through auction, and some may be bought by scrap dealers.

 

Frequently asked questions

 

There are various factors that determine the value of your car, including seasonality and the scrap metal demand at the time you’re looking to scrap your car. Scrap car dealers in London will consider some basic criteria before deciding how much they’re willing to pay for your car.
