Can I really scrap my old car for cash?

Yes, unlike scrap metal, which now cannot be purchased using cash, it is still legal to buy old scrap cars for cash. Not all of our buyers will pay in cash but we do have several that as happy to do so. Before you book in your vehicle please confirm that you need cash payment and we will find a suitable collector.

We have car scrappers in every locality looking for scrap cars for sale, so if it’s no longer financially practical to repair your car or to take it for MOT, don’t despair. Cars are generally scrapped when they fail their MOT, crash, break down or simply reach the end of their lives. In the past, drivers had to pay to have their vehicles removed and taken to a scrap yard, but the problems caused by cars that were abandoned led to government incentives to scrap your vehicle using all the correct legal channels. What’s more is that scrap metal has increased in price over the years, so when your car does reach the end of its life on the road, this doesn’t mean that it is not of value to others.
