Scrap my car – if it’s no longer worth spending money on repairs to keep your car running, it’s probably best to look at how you can scrap it and earn the best price.

This means contacting the experts at The Scrappers who can pick up your car at a time and location to suit you – and offer the most money.

Otherwise, these tips on how you can ‘scrap my car best prices paid’ will help.

There are other reasons for scrapping your car which may include it being an MOT failure or it may have a mechanical issue that costs more than the car is worth to correct.

However, it’s important to appreciate that while we talk about scrapping your car, it is better described as recycling since most of the car will be reused and what remains will be scrapped.

Scrapping my car

Indeed, if you are searching online with the term scrap my car near me, it’s important to appreciate too that The Scrappers can pick up your car wherever you are.

Though you should be wary if you contact a scrapyard which offers the ‘scrap car highest price UK’ – and offer to pick up your car for cash because this is now illegal – the government made it so to reduce metal theft.

Instead, you must now be paid by cheque or by bank transfer directly into your account.

Also, any scrapyard offering to pay cash is unlikely to give you a certificate of destruction which is proof that you have disposed of your car legally.

This means the best way to comply with the law and ensure your car is recycled properly, is to use an authorised treatment facility which is monitored by the Environment Agency.

Along with being reassured that your car will be recycled, it’s also important to appreciate that your vehicle will be properly depolluted and the waste materials handled correctly – and The Scrappers is one of these facilities.
