100% Coverage across Colchester
Interestingly, modern day Colchester actually sits on the site of the ancient Roman settlement of Camulodunum which was our nation’s first capital! Nowadays, the city isn’t a huge distance away from the new capital of London, nor is it a million miles away from its own patch of coastline and the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk. What else is local and accessible to residents of Colchester? The services of National Scrap Car, that’s what. In fact, if you’re looking to sell your old motor, we will find you the best offers from scrap dealers no matter what part of the country you’re in. Plus, we’ll even arrange for it to be collected free of charge!
We offer complete scrap coverage across Colchester and nearby, including Langham Moor, Elmstead Market, Rowhedge and Stanway Green.
Prices in Colchester are mostly determined by scrap yards local to the city which follows the average cost for scrap metal in the east of England. All vehicles that need to be scrapped have their prices determined by their weight. Small variables include things like alloy wheels being present.
Heavier vehicles like scrap vans or 4x4s will have more metal that can be recycled, and a better price offered. We only work with approved auto junk yards (known as an Authorised Treatment Facility) which will depollute and recycle your car or van ethically and legally.
The prices we offer include free collection from wherever you are in Colchester, help with the paperwork and high professional standards to ensure a smooth experience from start to finish.
Whether your car or van is out by the zoo or nearer the university, our approved scrap yards across the UK offer car collection from where you are. At the time of booking we’ll ensure recovery vehicles can access your vehicle.

Scrapping your vehicle FAQs
After you have agreed the price on offer, you can provide us with more details regarding the status of the car and us getting access to it. You don’t need to empty, clean, or modify your car in any way but please remove anything you don’t want destroyed at the time of scrapping.
Once we have all the necessary details we will pass this on to the scrap yard that has offered you the best price. They will be in touch via phone to arrange a convenient time to pick up the vehicle. On the day they’ll phone as they approach and request things like the V5C (which you aren’t required to have) or keys (again, not necessarily required so long as the vehicle can still be removed). You, as the owner, don’t have to be present on the day but you’ll need a signed note from the owner and photo ID.
We make payment on the same day the car is collected. Once the scrap yard has notified us of car being present and correct, we’ll release payment via BACS to the account you have provided. You should see the cash available to you that day.
