Work through the form, which follows and enter the information as accurately as possible to receive an absolutely free no obligation valuation.

Sale completion process
Upon booking your appointment we will arrange for one of our nationwide vehicle buyers / drivers to attend the location you have chosen for collection of the van.
First of all, our representative will inspect the van to check its condition is as described. For scrap vans this will be a formality, as obviously we expect scrap vans to be in a poor condition (otherwise they wouldn’t be scrapped!)
Upon completion of the inspection, we will either pay the full price quoted online or may alter the price paid if the condition varies, this is usually not an issue for scrap van purchases.
Payment is made either by PayPal, where payment is usually received instantly or by bank transfer, which takes up to 2 hours.
