3 Tips for scrapping a van in the UK

Get the best price to scrap a van

These tips for scrapping a van in the UK will be helpful for any van owner wanting to get the best scrap price for their unwanted vehicle.

Whether the van is a runner or a non-runner, has been in an accident or failed its MOT, your scrap van is worth cash.

However, in order to get the best price and to comply with the law, it’s important that you follow these three tips from The Scrappers.

Use an Authorised Treatment Facility

While it may be tempting to trawl van scrap yards in the search for the highest cash offer, you need to be aware that you should be using an authorised treatment facility (ATF) for disposing of your van.

That’s because these facilities are checked by the Environment Agency to make sure that your van is being scrapped in compliance with the law. Not using a facility means you will be breaking the law and will be held liable for what happens to your scrap van once you hand it over.

Be wary of van scrap yards offering to pay in cash. While all scrap yards say they will pay cash, this is an old term because under the Scrap Metal Dealers Act, it is no longer possible to pay someone in cash and they must instead be paid directly into their bank account.

Should a van scrap yard offer to pay cash, then you should check whether you are dealing with an authorised treatment facility and your van may not be properly depolluted or recycled.
