Is your car a DVLA write off? Call The Scrappers
For whatever reason, if your car is a DVLA write off then you need to call The Scrappers and we will take care of the paperwork and pay you to take your vehicle off your hands.
There are two important issues that you need to appreciate when scrapping a car, the first is that you need to ensure that the DVLA knows that you are no longer the legal keeper of the vehicle.
They need to know that you’ve passed your scrap car to a scrap car yard or if you have scrapped the vehicle by yourself.
While the process is straightforward, the scrap yard you choose to use must be an authorised treatment facility.
Search online with the term ‘Scrap my car’
One reason when you search online with the term ‘Scrap my car’ is that lots of vehicle dismantling firms may offer cash for your scrap car but they may not be an authorised treatment facility.
Why is this so important? Well, only a facility that is recognised by the Environment Agency will offer a certificate of destruction to prove you are no longer the legal owner and that the car has been scrapped.
You should keep this certificate in a safe place should you ever need to prove that your vehicle has been scrapped.
The scrap yard will also inform DVLA who will, in turn, contact you within a month to confirm that your vehicle has been legally scrapped and you are no longer responsible for it.
Scrap car prices being offered by scrap yards
The scrap car prices being offered by scrap yards and vehicle dismantles will vary and you should only work with those that are authorised treatment facilities.
Whether your car is an insurance total loss or whether it will cost more to repair than the vehicle is worth, you need to begin the process of scrapping it.
By not using an approved facility, the person or firm you hand your vehicle over to may simply dump the vehicle somewhere and it may become a hazard and the harmful oils may damage the environment. You will be responsible for any costs incurred cleaning up this dumped vehicle wherever it is.
To bring peace of mind, The Scrappers have built up a sound reputation for more than 25 years of offering the best prices and great customer service and this offer extends around the country with a network of reputable agents who will collect your DVLA write off and pay cash when doing so.
