100% Coverage across Dorset

If you were to say Dorset is a beautiful county, you’d factually be correct as more than half of Dorset is officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With the majority of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site making up the Dorset coastline, as well as sites such as Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door, Dorset is certainly spoiled for choice when it comes to eye-catching landmarks. Dorset also provides steam enthusiasts across the country an annual meeting point with its legendary Great Dorset Steam Fair, the largest of its kind in Europe. If your car feels like it might as well be powered by steam, it might be time to consider getting rid of it and modernising – and by using national Scrap Car you’re guaranteed the very best price thanks to our nationwide network of scrap and salvage specialists.

We offer complete scrap coverage across Dorset, including Bournemouth, Poole, Gillingham, Dorchester and Weymouth.

Prices in Dorset 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 scrap 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 Dorset, help with the paperwork and high professional standards to ensure a smooth experience from start to finish.

Whether your car or van is in the streets of Bournemouth or along the beautiful Jurassic Coast, 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

What do I need to do before my car is collected?

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.

What will happen on the day of collection?

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.

When do I get paid?

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.
