Scrap your car – it’s easier than you think

Any car reaches its “end of life”. Although selling a car can be an upheaval, we can help you to smoothly sell your car – even if you think it has no value, it will still be worth scrap at least. Use our service to quickly sell a scrap car anywhere within the UK-mainland.

The process starts by completing our valuation form online, alternatively, you can contact us by phone, text or email. If you still need some convincing, here are three reasons to use our service:

Valuations are 100% free

Buyers of insurance write-off cars

Sell your MOT failure and avoid the repair bill

Our scrap car buying service

“Scrap” doesn’t initially sound too appetising to owners, but “where there’s muck there’s brass”. We will ensure the car is broken down responsibly and the maximum benefit from the car is realised. This is green-friendly and conserves the planet’s precious resources in the best way, rather than sending straight to landfill. Read more about the “ins and outs” of our service below.

An all-embracing term covering many situations

Ask around and you’ll see that scrap means different things from one person to another. Scrap cars generally arise when a car can’t be economically repaired. Examples include if your car has failed an MOT, has a major problem (e.g. blown engine) or has been involved in an accident. Whatever your scenario the car still has value. We can maximise this value through our trade connections and are keen to buy your car.

Imperfection expected

Many owners will be thinking “my car is too damaged to be worth anything”. That’s almost certainly untrue, every car has a value – it’s metal, breaking down for parts, etc. Most cars we inspect, we buy and that’s a fact. Scrap value isn’t the highest amount ever but it’s worth selling a car for whatever you can realise, it’s the “100% of something” principle.

Do you even buy non-runners?

Yes, check out our non-runners page and you will see. We are all about taking the hassle out of selling a car for scrap and in a lot of cases non-runners are scrap. Why waste your time with low offers from dealers and scrapyards when you can receive a competitive valuation from us for just a few minutes of your time?

Can I sell an insurance write-off as scrap?

Some categories of insurance write-off (CAT C, CAT D, CAT N and CAT S) we can buy. Broadly insurance write-offs can be classed as scrap although in a high number of cases the car can still be repaired. Why not get a free valuation from us and compare our quote to the one you have received from your insurance company?

So, what’s stopping you scrapping your car with us?

Hopefully, you have read and understood the We Buy Broken Vans process of buying scrap used cars. We can only emphasise that we are eagerly seeking scrap cars and pay fair prices. We realise by their nature second hand cars like are imperfect.

Therefore, if you are serious about selling your scrap car contact us. Sell your car in just 2-3 days, by contacting us on 0121 7941 899/07582 859 859 or complete our contact form.
