County Down may well be one of the most fantastical places in Northern Ireland, thanks to the fact it has inspired some of the most iconic worlds in modern fiction. The Mourne Mountains are said to have inspired C.S. Lewis, while Winterfell and Riverlands from the hugely popular Game of Thrones were filmed in the county. If your car is starting to behave more like a mythical creature than a sophisticated piece of engineering, you may feel like it’s time to say goodbye. With collection agents across the county, National Scrap Car is here to guarantee you the very best price in the quickest time possible for your old motor.

Prices across Down and bordering counties are mostly determined by scrap yards local to your area which follows the Northern Irish average for scrap metal. All vehicles that need to be scrapped have their prices determined by their known weight.

Heavier cars 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 Down, help with the paperwork and high professional standards to ensure a smooth experience.

Whether your car or van is in the centre of Belfast or the surrounding towns of Newry, Bangor, Dundonald, or Newtownards then we can still offer free collection. Our approved scrap yards across County Down and Northern Ireland offer car collection from where you are. At the time of booking we’ll ensure recovery vehicles can access your vehicle.

Scrap your Van in Down

The process for scrapping a van in Down is really no different from scrapping a car. You may, however, see a higher scrap price for your van. This is because some vans are bigger than the average car, which means they have more metal to fetch you a higher price.

Scrap your Truck in Down

If you’re looking to scrap a truck in Down, you’ve come to the right place. National Scrap Car can help you with the process of scrapping any vehicle. There’s currently no government scrappage scheme in place in Northern Ireland. This is another reason we strongly recommend following government advice, and using a trusted service to find a reputable dealer to help you with the process.

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. The car should be as described at the time of booking.

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 will need a signed note from the owner and photo ID.

When do I get paid?

We make a BACS 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. You should see the cash available to you that day.
