Well over a million cars meet the crusher every year here in Britain. Whether they’re uneconomical to repair, have been involved in an accident, have failed their MOT or simply don’t work any more, they all go through the same scrappage process. If you’ve never scrapped a car before, you may well wonder how it all works. That’s what we’re going to clear up in today’s blog.
Finding a vehicle recycling specialist
The first step, naturally, is to find someone who can scrap your car. If you live in the Norfolk, Cambridgeshire or Suffolk areas, the team here at Cambridge Car Solutions can help. We collect vehicles for free from your home, saving you the bother of dropping it off – and we can even collect accident-damaged or immobilised vehicles!
Plus, our regular price checks ensure that you’ll receive a competitive quote no matter your vehicle type. That’s right… we’ll pay for your old car!
Getting a quote
Next, head over to our scrap my car Norfolk page and complete our straightforward online quote form. It’ll take a minute or two at most, and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible with a price. The price we quote will be the price you’re paid – there are no hidden charges or fees to worry about.
Collection or drop-off
If you’re happy with the price we’ve quoted, the next step is to arrange a suitable time for us to come and collect the vehicle (or for you to drop it off at our facility, if you prefer). Collections are free within a 50-mile radius of our facility, and it won’t take long for us to grab your vehicle and load it onto one of our trucks – even if it doesn’t drive!
Inform the DVLA
Now your vehicle has been sold to us to be recycled, you’ll have to let the DVLA know by completing a form. Don’t worry: it’s super simple to do, and we’ll tell you how to do it and where to send it. We can even help you complete the form when we collect your vehicle if you’re not sure.
With your car collected and returned to our recycling facility, all that’s left is for us to pay you the price we quoted previously. You’re all done – it’s that simple.
