Scrap My Accident Damaged Range Rover Manchester

Best prices pair for MOT failure cars

THE Scrappers have one of the biggest car recycling and salvage yards in the north of the UK based in sunny Bolton.

We can cater to motorist’s scrap car needs for miles around.

As a general rule we take scrap cars from around a 50 miles radius. But, occasionally we do go out further afield too.

So if you want to scrap a car it’s always worth bearing The Scrappers in mind, no matter where you’re based.

And it’s really simple to get a quote for a scrap vehicle using our nifty online car value calculator. Or why not have a friendly chit-chat with a team member online.

It’s not just scrap cars we are after either, we buy scrap vans, scrap trucks, scrap motorbikes. We buy scrap taxis, scrap busses, the old boat even makes an

BE YOUR OWN CAR SALESMAN!

HAVE you ever dreamed of driving a Porsche or another fancy model? You may have done so without knowing it!

Don’t worry, you weren’t sleepdriving behind the wheel and have no recollection of the incident. You are not losing your mind!

You could have driven in a fancy car while awake, certainly part of a fancy car anyway. 

Did you know a whopping 75 percent of a car can be recycled?

The chances are the car you’re driving could well have been another make or model of vehicle in its former life. 

Cars, vans, trucks, busses, any automobile you can think of, is the most recycled product in the world.

TONNES OF THE STUFF

Millions of tonnes of recycled steel is retrieved from vehicles every year, vehicles that have seen better days.

Scrap vehicles can include accident damaged vehicles, so if that fancy Porsche had a nasty prang which can’t be fixed it would

Sell My Classic Car For Cash

It's Not Over For This Rover

The Scrappers isn’t solely a scrapyard, we’re a salvage yard too. This means that whenever we can save a vehicle, we damn right well will!

Take classic cars, for example, that have been left to deteriorate over the years. You’d be surprised how often we get wrecks coming on. Barn-yard finds, neglected-on-the-driveway finds, cooped-up-in-a-garage-for-years finds. You name it, we’ve found it.

If we at The Scrappers ever do come across an oldies goldies gem we ensure that it gets the restoration it deserves. Sometimes we undertake the work ourselves as there is nothing more rewarding than restoring a car back to it’s former glory. Other times it’ll go off to a particular classic car restorer who focuses specifically on restoring certain makes and models. 

This 1980’s Rover 800, for example, came into us after giving up the ghost long ago and is now on its way to a chap in Bury. It’ll get an

Let’s not beat about the bush, January is a long dreary month – even when life is ‘normal’. blank

Thirty-one days of the same old, same old. The majority of us are skint from the aftermath of Christmas and there isn’t a great deal to look forward to.

So we, The Scrappers, have decided to scrap January and rename it VANuary!

And VANuary is a top notch month to enjoy because we want to buy your van – either for scrap or as a sell-on.

If you have a van that’s a runner and you want to sell a van quickly in Bolton or further afield, look no further afield! Come to The Scrappers. 

The Scrappers always pay the best payouts going for vans. So if you’re thinking “I want to scrap my van Bolton,” contact us. Perhaps you’re thinking, “where can I sell my
