Taxi!!!! Well don’t expect these two to pick you up in a hurry – even while restrictive curfews are in place.

Yep these traditional London Taxi cabs have seen far better days, bless them.

Once a fab cab to a drab cab, this red and black taxi will both soon be grab cabs when Gloria, our glorious grabber, has her wicked way with them!

She’ll tear and shred them to pieces of scrap metal that’ll be loaded into an enormous container before heading to a metal recycling plant and being turned into something else, something useful again.

And that could even be another tax [...]

Sell my car Blackburn

We don’t half find some finds.

Vehicles that have literally been left to rot for years! If cars could talk, they’d have some stories to tell.


Some vehicles have been left for so long in fact that half of them have sprouted gardens or become habitats for wildlife like field mice.

Others have been left under trees and you should see what that does to the paintwork over time.

Take this old Taxi cab for example pictured below… it’s been under some shrubbery for a while and as a result it’s been exposed to sooty mould – which is actually green fly poop!

During the warmer months, bugs like green flies can leave a very sticky residue on the paintwork of a car and it can be a bugger to shift!

This Taxi has obviously been left as a dumping ground for green fly sap over

A scrap van waiting to be recycled

We are always keen to buy vans, ones that run and non-runners too.

And we have been thinking about names of people and titles of movies that have ‘Van’ in them.

For example, the movie Van Helsing – was a vampire movie starring Kate Beckinsale. And we like a sale too.. of the [...]

Who buys accident damaged cars?

Sell my accident damaged car

Most motorists will tell you driving in the rain is more of a chore than pleasure.

Steamed up windows, wipers going ten to the dozen and water logged pot holes that douse your motor in muddy gritty sludge.

Oh the joys… 🚙 🌧 🚙 🌧

It is a ball ache and best to avoid driving if possible. But when you have to make that journey you can stay safer on the roads by taking your time and slowly down to avoid aquaplaning.

Turning your headlights on can help you see more clearly as well as make you more visible to other drivers.

It’s also wise to give other cars more space as stopping suddenly on a wet road can take longer than a dry road.

The Scrappers see more bumped cars in wetter weather as sometimes drivers overlook the need to be extra cautious and shunts happen.

If the damage is repairable off the

The Scrappers need cars for export and are willing to pay a premium for them.

This gigantic truck is being loaded for Senegal in Western Africa.

Dozens and dozens of engines and other car parts will be making their way on a 2,777 miles trip from our Bolton salvage yard. blank

It usually takes a day to load up a 40ft container like this but it’s worth it, not just because of the monetary benefits but also because these engines are going to one of the poorest countries in Africa, and the world.

Hopefully these engines will in some way help people. By getting them on the road or by generating some [...]
