Scrap Cars for Cash

It was not that long ago that it would cost you to scrap your car, now the scrap metal industry has changed, and we are paying you instead. People often think that the only reason for scrapping your car is if it has been in an accident, failed its MOT, or if it’s a non-runner and it’s uneconomical to repair. In actual fact, scrapping your car can be for a variety of reasons, whether you want to avoid expensive parking charges or ultra-low emission zone costs, or make a positive contribution to the environment in general, choosing to scrap your car is hassle-free with Scrapping A Car and you can get a financial reward while doing so.

An alternative to scrapping your car is to dismantle the car and sell the car for parts yourself, however, this can be an incredibly lengthy process with a large amount of time and effort, and you may not always have the resource to do so. By using Scrapping A Car instead, we guarantee you a simple, hassle-free service while getting you the best monetary value for your vehicle.

In October 2013, a new legislation was introduced called the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013. This made paying for scrap cars in cash illegal in an effort to combat rogue traders and create better transparency throughout the industry. That’s why we will never actually pay you in cash, all of our payments are made via BACS bank transfer within 24 hours.

Scrapping your car used to consist of searching through hundreds of adverts to find somebody to purchase your scrap vehicle. Now you can simply go online and search for scrapping your car and you will get hundreds of results instantly. However, just because there’s so many results it doesn’t necessarily mean all scrap car companies can be trusted. We have seen instances where people have thought their car was being sold for scrap, and instead have received speeding tickets and other fines months after doing so as a result of them still being on the road. So how do you know which companies to trust?

Finding a reputable company

We know that having to scroll through hundreds of results on Google or on scrap car comparison websites to find a reputable company can be an exhausting task, that’s why at Scrapping A Car we make it simple. We are a registered Authorised Treatment Facility and we have over 30 years industry experience, you can rest assured that you are in safe hands. We are the longest serving ATF in South East London and have served many happy customers.

We are the end buyer of your vehicle; you don’t need to wait around for a buyer to come forward from a comparison website and then spend time doing your research to make sure they are a registered and trusted ATF. Save yourself the hassle and come to us directly instead.

As we are an ATF, we will be the company that scraps your car, you don’t have to worry your car might be back on the road in future as we always legally scrap cars in line with ethical regulations and give you a Certificate of Destruction as proof.
