Scrap my Van

When a vehicle is very old, accident damaged or in poor condition, an insurance company may opt to write it off. If this is the case, you might well decide the only way forward is to sell it for scrap so that at least some of the value can be recouped. We can help by buying it from you at a fair price with no hassle..

We are pleased to buy scrap vans for cash no matter what your reason for selling. So if you have one or more scrap vans for sale, get in touch today.
Scrap vans don’t necessarily have to be severely damaged in order for an insurance company to class them as write-offs. Sometimes a van can be written off if the repair costs to the insurance company are marginal even though the damage can seem very minor. However, this, of course, isn’t always the case and in many situations, it is beneficial for the owner to buy the written-off van back from the insurance company and sell it for its scrap value.

If you have a scrap van for sale, why not contact us to compare it with the offer your insurance company is giving you? Also, read our related pages –“Cat C Vans” and “Cat D Vans”.
You can but it may not be easy. You might well find you get a wide range of very low offers for your scrap as people try to get a bargain. Not only is this a major hassle but it wastes time too. However, by selling your scrap van to us, you know we’ll offer you a fair price and no messing around.

Even if your vehicle is not damaged beyond repair or suffering from a serious fault, it could still be a good idea to sell it to We Buy Broken Vans. For example, you might be paying the ULEZ charge if your van does not have a Euro 6 compliant engine. London emissions zone vans must meet this minimum requirement, meaning that any diesel vehicles registered before 2015 are much more expensive to run in the capital.

At the moment the ULEZ only covers the same area of London as the Congestion Charge, which means that its impact is limited. However, on the 25th of October 2021, it will be expanding to encompass a much larger area of the city, leaving many more van owners with a daily charge to pay. Selling a Euro 5 van to us will therefore become even more appealing at this point.

Because we will make an offer on almost any van, selling to us is worthwhile if your van does not meet the requirements of any government scrappage schemes. In terms of ultra-low emission zone vans, any owner based outside of London is out of luck in terms of applying to these schemes. Thankfully, we have no such limits and will buy any scrap van London has to offer, as well as old models from every other part of the mainland UK.

Our national service for buying broken vans is second to none and you barely have to lift a finger when you call on us to take care of things for you. After getting your van valued on our site, we can arrange for one of our team to come out and inspect the van, before collecting it direct from your preferred location. That means there is no need to worry about driving it anywhere yourself, which is especially relevant in the case of selling non-runner vans.

As well as not discriminating against customers based on the location of their van, the engine under the hood, the emissions rating it has achieved or any faults that it has developed, we also do not have any restrictions on the make or model of van you can sell to us.

Whether you have a Citroen Berlingo that is ready for the scrapheap or a Mercedes Sprinter that has been written off by an insurer, we will make you an offer. With a seven day guarantee on the prices we quote and our aforementioned national coverage for collection, there is no reason not to get in touch with our contact details below.

Perhaps most importantly, we endeavour to support and advise all of our customers, talking through some of the trickier aspects of selling a van and providing guidance if you are unsure about any aspect of the process. It is what makes selling to us a great alternative to scrapping a van in any other way, whether through a scheme or private sale.
