How do I scrap my car for cash?

If you’re wondering how you scrap your car for cash, then the short answer is that you can’t. Cash transfers are forbidden under legislation introduced in 2013, and scrap dealers can lose their license if they carry out their business in this way.

The legislation is effective because it also gives the vehicle owners plenty of benefits too. One of these is that a cheque or electronic bank transfer provides you with a paper trial to prove that the deal went ahead. This gives you protection, so that if the paperwork isn’t completed correctly then the DVLA could contact you with potential fines and you won’t have any proof to show that you no longer have the vehicle. So you don’t really want to scrap your car for cash.

What paperwork will I need?

We will carry out all the paperwork required to scrap the car, but to support the process we will require the vehicle logbook (V5C). Without this document we will not be able to scrap this car, as there is no proof that we’ve had authorization from the owner to do so.

Once the relevant paperwork is complete, you will receive a Certificate of Destruction (CoD) through the post within a week of processing. This then proves that the car has been legally scrapped and the DVLA knows that you are no longer responsible for it.

How much will you get for using our Scrap My Car London services?

The specific scrap value of a car is hard to estimate without any specific details. The price you are offered will be based on a number of different factors, including:

  • Make and model
  • Weight
  • Age
  • Trim level and engine type

We will the take this information and provide you with a firm guaranteed price if we come to collect your car.

Can I get a refund on my insurance?

Once the car has been scrapped and you’ve received the Certificate of Destruction then you are officially no longer responsible for the vehicle. This means that you can go ahead and contact your insurance provider and ask for a refund on the remaining months insurance that are no longer required. This really depends on the method you use to pay for your insurance; if you pay upfront for the year then you’re well within your right to request the refund. If you choose to pay monthly then it’s more likely the case that the insurance company will refund the remaining days of the month that you’ve already paid for and cancel any future payments that are no longer relevant.

Donate the value of your scrap car to charity

With so many honourable causes to support in the world, many people are choosing to donate the price they receive from scrapping their car to charity. We can save you the effort and help to donate this money for you. All that is required is that you notify us when we come to collect the car and we can send the payment to a charity of your choice rather than your own personal bank account. We will then of course send you confirmation that the donation has been made on your behalf. This is a great way to convert an old vehicle that is no longer serving a purpose into valuable resource that a charity can use to do some good in the world.
