A quick online search with the term ‘cash for scrap cars’ will return lots of potential vehicle scrapping and salvage firms.

But which ones are paying the best price and are they reputable?

That’s the big question when it comes for most people looking to get rid of their vehicle, whether it has failed its MOT or has reached the end of its life.

With The Scrappers, we not only pay the best prices for scrap cars, we are also a reputable firm committed to offering good levels of customer service and disposing of your unwanted vehicle in an environmentally-friendly way.

Cash for scrap vehicles

However, for those wanting cash for scrap vehicles will need to appreciate that the law has changed and it’s now illegal to offer money when picking up a car or van and instead the scrapping firm must pay the agreed price into your bank account using bank transfer or a business cheque.

If a salvage firm is offering to pay cash, and it’s probably more than other firms are offering, then you need to be wary of them.

That’s because you will be held legally liable for what happens to your vehicle after it leaves your hands since you must use an authorised treatment facility because only they can offer a certificate of destruction which proves to the DVLA that you have legally disposed of your vehicle.

These authorised treatment facilities are monitored by the Environment Agency and The Scrappers is one such facility. This means that we effectively de-pollute the car so it doesn’t harm our environment and any parts that can be resold will be carefully removed from the vehicle.

How much is my scrap car worth?

You may be asking, how much is my scrap car worth? The answer is, it depends.

There are a range of factors affecting the scrap price of the vehicle, including the demand from the scrap metal market to the value of the parts that can be salvaged and then sold on. Also, knowing how to scrap a car effectively takes a lot of expertise.

Usually, small cars being sold for scrap will earn less in scrap metal prices than a larger car, such as a Land Rover Discovery, and vans.

Whatever the size of your vehicle or its age or condition, if you want to get the best cash for scrap cars or vans, then it is time to contact The Scrappers on (01204) 388488.
